In 1907??[edit]

Currently : "In 1907...[the United States'] racist immigration policies indicated potential American racial enmity towards the Japanese. Furthermore, the United States Navy had recently surpassed the United Kingdom's Royal Navy as the largest and most powerful fleet in the world." WTF? In 1907 the US had no immigration policy; the first immigration quotas weren't imposed until the 1920s. Similarly, it's absurd to claim that the USN had surpassed the British RN at the time of the Great White Fleet; the US only attained naval parity with Britain with the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922.

Yeah, wow, I had never read that section of this article. Okay, made an attempt at a re-write, but will need to come back to provide the supporting citations. Gunbirddriver (talk) 23:40, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
Solicitr: there was the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act; racist for sure, but to the benefit of the Japanese as the article notes. Gunbirddriver: a good first cut at improving that section. Hga (talk) 18:35, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
