Hate Speech

My German born grandfather came to America when he was in his mid-twenties. He spoke English well but with a very heavy German accent. During WWII he was a foreman on a military production line and had the authority to stop the line when things were not correct. One of his workers reported him to the FBI claiming that my grandfather was sabotaging the line. While my grandfather would be cleared it made me wonder if this worker was perhaps Jewish or maybe had lost a son in the war.

America is a racist country but my grandfather had it way easier than Japanese immigrants because he was a white guy. Also because it was Japan that killed a couple of thousand Americans in a sneak attack at Pearl Harbor. So if someone lost a son at Pearl Harbor or in some other battle in the Pacific are they automatically racists because they hate what the Japs did to their family?

And that is all I’m going to say about that!
