670 __ Power of Words Handbook, viewed online September 18 2018 $b ([The usage of the word Evacuation] to describe the forced removal by the federal government of over 110,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans from their homes on the West Coast and Arizona is not accurate. They were not “evacuated” to protect them from a disastrous environment[…] The words forced removal should be used instead—which more accurately describes the lack of choice provided to Japanese Americans who were ordered to leave their homes.) $u https://jacl.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Power-of-Words-Rev.-Term.-Handbook.pdf
670 __ Power of Words Handbook, viewed online September 18 2018 $b (The word incarceration more accurately describes those held in WR A camps. Incarcerate is generally defined as to confine or imprison, typically as punishment for a crime. This term reflects the prison-like conditions faced by Japanese Americans as well as the view that they were treated as if guilty of sabotage, espionage, and/or suspect loyalty.) $u https://jacl.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Power-of-Words-Rev.-Term.-Handbook.pdf
