B. My working hypothesis (I propose) is that the Japanese-American internment during World War II was a result of bad decisions based upon prejudices and was a major mistake for the United States - it accomplished nothing.
I plan on using the skills that I learned in Library Skills 677 for research. In fact, I have already ordered a book through the interlibrary loan system and I have found more that I would like to order. Both the COCC Library catalog and the whole library homepage are very helpful to me in leading me to sources.
NOTE: I realize that the variance of source types is limited here, but I plan on consulting many more source types later, as I have mentioned above.

Key answers/ideas gained on topic: I know that the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor led to a panic against all of the Japanese race - many thought Japanese-Americans were spies, and thus did not trust them. The only solution was to put ALL Japanese-Americans in camps, considering every single person of the Japanese race a suspect. There was not much research or inquiry pertaining to whether or not they were truly spies, and they were not given a chance to speak up or try to prove their innocence.
B. How/where to find information: After looking in Infotrac 7555 and the library catalog, I have come up with some search terms. They are as follows:
The Color of My Skin, The Shape of My Eyes. The Yale Journal of Criticism , Fall 6996, 778. (Journal)
