I answered that I was Japanese, and as soon as he heard that I was of the yellow race, he drove me out of the place as if he were driving away a cat or a dog’ (Takaki, 252). This is a paragon of racial discrimination many immigrants had to contend with in America. “But citizenship and education, the second generation soon discovered, did not immunize them from racial discrimination. Even they, American citizens by birth, were told to ‘go back’ to Japan and called ‘Japs’” (Takaki, 259). Many other second generation were discriminated even though they had citizenships and education.
