Of Civil Wrongs and Rights – The Fred Korematsu Story

“… After viewing the documentary about Fred Korematsu, Of Civil Wrongs and Rights – The Fred Korematsu Story ($24.49), I have to say that I am quite impressed at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) – San Francisco chapter, made the effort to aide Fred Korematsu, even when the national ACLU chapter was against it (the national leadership was friends of FDR.) But those in San Francisco clearly saw how wrong and un-Constitutional Executive Order 9066 was.

After the whole program was over, I have to say that I learned quite a bit more about the man Fred Korematsu, Korematsu vs. United States and how fragile one’s liberty and freedoms can quickly evaporate in times of war and heated rhetoric and that the lessons of yesterday can be very much applied to today’s uncertain times. From Guantanamo Bay to the ridiculous and racist & religious intolerance of the “Ground Zero Mosque,” all Americans need to not only learn the lessons of history, but how they apply to the present day.” – John, 8Asians.com
