Now, If you think you do have rights, next time you’re at the computer I want you to type in “Japanese-Americans 1942”. You’ll find out all about your precious fucking rights, ok?
Yeah. In 1942, there were 110,000 Japanese-American citizens in good standing, they had no right to a Lawyer, no right to a fair trial, no right to a jury of their peers, no right to due process of any kind.
Just when these American citizens needed their rights the most, their Government took them away and rights aren’t rights if someone can take them away
“It is in moments of illness that we are compelled to recognize that we live not alone but chained to a creature of a different kingdom, whole worlds apart, who has no knowledge of us and by whom it is impossible to make ourselves understood: our body.”—Marcel Proust (via likeafieldmouse)
