Jay Feldman reported on the curtailment of civil liberties for minorities during times of war and strife in the United States. Mr. Feldman argued that throughout American history, government officials and private citizens have capitalized on public anxieties to oppress minorities. The author showed a few pictures as he recounted the stories of several groups that have faced persecution, including the deportation of Mexican immigrants and Mexican Americans throughout the Depression to the placement of 112,000 Japanese Americans in internment camps during World War II. Jay Feldman responded to questions from members of the audience at Book Passage Bookstore in Corte Madera, California, on September 13, 2011. close
