prisoners during and after world war two in 1942. It resulted in
the deaths of thousands of prisoners including two battalions.

Japanese Americans had their relocation to internment camps

in America to practice their cultural traditions, and values
and beliefs, survived and over time have incorporated
elements of European American culture.

people of Hispanics have type O blood compared to 50
percent of African Americans.

There are 1.1 million Hispanics that are following
