Google celebrates Fred Korematsu, who fought opposite Japanese internment


Google is celebrating polite rights personality Fred Korematsu with a Google Doodle today, on a day that would’ve noted his 98th birthday. Korematsu was innate in Oakland, California, to Japanese immigrants. He went into stealing when U.S. President Roosevelt released an executive sequence promulgation people of Japanese skirmish vital in a U.S. to internment camps.

Korematsu went into stealing instead of entering a stay voluntarily, and was arrested in 1942 for journey a order. He was afterwards detained in a stay in Utah until a finish of a war. Korematsu was after released a Medal of Freedom by Bill Clinton, and following a events of Sep 11, he spoke out about how a U.S. should not go down a same trail with those of Middle-Eastern skirmish as it did with people of Japanese birthright during WWII.

Korematsu would also record amicus briefs in court cases involving detainees during Guantanamo Bay who were arguing opposite prejudicial and enlarged wrong detainment, arguing that a limitation of polite liberties is never a pardonable magnitude in a U.S.

A famous quote attributed to Korematsu is “don’t be fearful to pronounce up,” something he suggested all Americans to do in box something was wrong.
