An Inclusive Litany

11/27/02

Responding to concerns over sensitivity to Japanese-Americans, a movie theater in the San Pedro section of Los Angeles canceled a showing of "Tora! Tora! Tora!," a 1970 movie about the Pearl Harbor attack, that had been scheduled for December 7, Pearl Harbor Day.

[Ed.: Note that the World War II-era practice of rounding up Japanese-Americans and placing them in internment camps came about due to concerns over their sympathies.]
