In my novel Tallgrass the Japanese and their families are being racially profiled. Now a days profiling is happening all over the world. Most states do not have laws against racial profiling. Only 29 states even mention laws regaurding racial profiling. So the connection i see between then & now is that they think racial profiling is okay & they continue to do so.
EXTRA CREDIT: I think that the government shouĺd make laws against racial profiling. If they were to make laws it should be brought to the countries that allow racial profiling. And therefore it should stop racial profiling.

In The Whispering Town & Tallgrass the main characters do not believe in what the government is saying about the Jews & Japanese. In Whispering town she does not believe that the jews are ruining or harming the country so she and her family helps them. In Tallgrass the narrator is not afraid of the Japanese she is more amused by them so she also helps them with the internment camp. They are both similar because the main characters do not believe what the government says about them.

cami - I think that the girl who went to the depot will get in trouble by her parents because she left without letting them know. I think that the japanese will take over her family´s farm, and the young girl and her family will be kicked out of their home.
