I think that's a good one. I like it. I think we should have followed it. It was ratified in 1868, it seems that our politicians would have been familiar with it by 1941. We're a nation of immigrants. Personally, most of my ancestors came from Germany. Why weren't any of my ancestors imprisoned during WWII? We were fighting Germany... Oh yeah. This country is full of Germans, and they don't look different than the rest of the population. It would be harder to find and isolate them. I'm glad that I've never been imprisoned because I'm a caucasian male who is 3/4 German and 1/4 Norwegian. It seems right, fair, and just. I don't think that the detainment of Arab-Americans at airports is right either. If there is a question, I fall back on the phrase "all men are created equal and are endowed by their creater with certain inalienable rights." Given 5 people - one white, one black, one asian, one indian, and one hispanic - all dressed identically so that they could not be judged by that, and knowing nothing about any of them, which one is more likely to commit murder? I definitely don't know; it depends not on race, but on personality and motive.
