Untitled[edit]

This page seems redundant with the "notable individuals" subsection on Japanese American. Personally, I think it belongs there, not as a separate "list" article -- DavidWBrooks 14:30, 14 Aug 2003 (UTC)

Parallels List of famous Chinese Americans, List of famous Korean Americans, etc. --Jiang

I added Ann Curry to the list; her mother was Japanese. Mike H 18:26, Jul 23, 2004 (UTC)

Daniel Akaka is not Japanese-American. He's native Hawaiian and Chinese-American. Yoko Ono and Hikaru Utada both have Japanese citizenship, and were born in Japan. They are therefore not Japanese-American.

Wrong re Utada; she was born in New York. - Sekicho 14:03, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Proposal for list inclusion[edit]

I have made the following proposal regarding the criteria for inclusion for these lists. If this is something that you have comments or ideas about, please provide feedback. Thanks. Wikibofh 9 July 2005 19:15 (UTC)

Intro reworded[edit]

The Intro ("The following is a list of famous Japanese Americans who have made significant contributions to the American culture or society artistically or scientifically") has been reworded slightly.

'Culture' and 'society' doesn't usually take a definitive article, and fields of achievement shouldn't be expressed as adverbs. Kransky 05:36, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Ethnicity lists discussion[edit]

Please see discussion at Wikipedia:Village pump (policy) for current discussion of a potential policy to apply to all ethnicity lists on Wikipedia, including this one. JackO'Lantern 20:38, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Military entries[edit]

Can anyone support the inclusion of Kelsey Knutson and Jiro Shimoda on the list? They have no Wikipedia entries, and the descriptions "Soldier in WWII" and "Sergeant in WWII" do not distinguish them as being particularly noteworthy. Myasuda 01:33, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

User:Chester3[edit]

There are some japanese americans that were not listed on the japanese-americans list: Jake E. Lee (guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, badlands. He is half- japanese (father caucasion american,mother japanese)). Jeff LaBar (guitarist for Cinderella, he have father caucasion and mother japanese) and Chera kimiko (news anchor for fox 23 news tulsa,OK.(half japanese) ( ---The user formerly known as JackLumber 19:26, 29 August 2007 (UTC) moved from [1])

Header info[edit]

I changed the header info a bit, eliminating what i call the Fourth wall of mentioning the list criteria in the article itself. i strengthened the language of the hidden comments, but if people working on this list think that no redlinks, even with references, should be added, i wont revert the language back if changed. personally, i like to see a few redlinks or plain text (unlinked) topics in lists, as another way that lists are different than categories (along with the brief descriptions).Mercurywoodrose (talk) 03:04, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

American sportspeople of Japanese descent category[edit]

Thanks to User:Mayumashu, the category American sportspeople of Japanese descent was deleted. For reference, the following is a list of previous category entries, many of which are not currently listed in this article's "Sports" section.
