One major failing of this piece was that it praises Japanese American military service for showing patriotism during WWII, but declines to mention that the reward for that patriotism was to be stripped of citizenship and property and incarcerated.

✉️ Good news! @USPS  is issuing #RuthAsawa  stamps. “The stamps honor the late, beloved SF-based Asawa, a Japanese American artist whose fountains adorn the city + whose wire sculptures have become an instantly recognizable emblem of her career.” @KQEDarts :

To those who lecture about "family values" and explicitly or tacitly condone removing THOUSANDS of children from their parents... One child would be a tragedy. This is a national shame and disgrace that I believe will be likened at least somewhat to Japanese-American Internment.
