Miyoshi Umeki[edit]

It would be nice to have another picture to complete the grid at the bottom right-hand corner. What about Miyoshi Umeki? She was the first and only Asian woman to win an Academy Award for acting, which is pretty notable, and she's Japanese American and has a picture of herself on her Wikipedia page. What does everyone think? Maranjosie (talk) 20:36, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

I'd support adding her picture to the grid. — Myasuda (talk) 21:45, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
As there is no objection, I will add her picture. Maranjosie (talk) 15:37, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Evaluation of this article[edit]

Since Japanese American were heavily impacted on internment camps in the United States, I believe this section should expand more on Japanese American's whom have had to witness it and their personal point of view on the event. It lacks on revealing what the government did after they closed down the internment camps and what Japanese Americans responded after being free. Also I think at second paragraph where it states "Civil Liberties Act of 1988" it should be followed with a sentence that shows what the government's responded to Japanese Americans in 1988 and the following decade since they rewarded them money and apologize for the actions that led the U.S government to violate the constitution by isolating their ethnicity into these camps because of the danger of spies in World War II. For example, the U.S president, Ronald Regan, signed a letter in 1988 that addressed an apology from the United States of America and offered 20 thousand dollars for every person that witness internment camps. Over 81,000 people were qualified by 1998 and 1.6 billion dollars was distributed among them.<ref>Kashima, Tetsuden. "Internment Camps."

This is a general article on Japanese Americans. The details you mention should probably be covered in the article Internment of Japanese Americans, which has a section covering "Reparations and redress".

By the way, the American politician was called "Ronald Reagan". Regan is a variant spelling of the name. Dimadick (talk) 01:17, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
