After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States Government encouraged all eligible young men to enlist immediately in the fight against its enemies overseas--all eligible young men, except Japanese-Americans. Nisei is the story of Hideo "Bobby" Takahashi, a Hawaiian-born Japanese-American who must overcome prejudice, internment, and the policies of his own government to prove his loyalty to his country. Narrated by Bobby Takahashi and read by his son, Robert, forty-six years after Bobby's death, the story details the young Nisei's determination to fight honorably for his country and return to the young love he was forced to leave--a girl he cannot have because she is White.

Jeanie Loiacono on
 
Having only heard mentioning of the atrocities forced upon American-born Japanese or those who’d immigrated prior to WWII, I was educated to the facts by Nisei. Although, as with all races in the U.S. then and now, there are those who will always have connections—sentimental, familial, and inherited—to their homeland, it is quite difficult to distinguish the terroristic and treasonistic from those who are loyal to America. It is an inner choice, an opinion, just as all things are. Only when the negativity is acted upon—as in death, destruction of property, and imposed fear—that profiling is done, both subconsciously and on purpose.
During WWII, we were battling Germans and Italians in Europe, and had been attacked by the Japanese December 7, 1941. Not only were Japanese Americans being watched, so was anyone with an accent or ties to Europe or Japan. Yet it is what was done to the Japanese that stands out the most. Racism and prejudice spread; the seed of which was fear, just like today. It is only with knowledge, understanding, and love can this be stopped.
In Nisei, an innocent, Japanese American young man’s artwork was used to facilitate the attack on Pearl Harbor. Now we have satellite phones that can transmit instantaneously. It has become technologically challenging to protect our borders, to guard our families, to prevent another 9/11. It is my hope we do not revisit our past mistakes, but we must protect the United States. Thank you, JJ White, for bringing this part of American history to light. Let us not forget.
