Everybody was afraid of the Germans, afraid of the Japs
But most of all afraid of a homeland attack
WWII, as with any major war, had the citizens of participating countries fearing for their lives. The sides for WWII where basically Germany and Japan vs. USA, France, UK, Russia and etc., so all the people in the US would be afraid of the German and Japanese immigrants living there. The majority of the time, these fears were unwarranted, as would be anyone’s fear of Kenji in this period.
