Storyboard Text

  • This is racially based and it is completely wrong!
  • Korematsu was arrested and taken to court because he refused to go to a cite that Asian-Americans were sent to during World War II and was sent to court. 
  • The controversy was that Korematsu was arrested for refusing to relocate to the camps where the Japanese-Americans were held. It went to the Supreme Court because he was tried once and he was found guilty and then his attorney’s appealed the trial’s court decision and his conviction was upheld, then he went and asked the Supreme Court of the United States to hear his case. The 14th Amendment was violated with the equal protection clause.
  • Innocent!
  • The court ruled him guilty and that it was a military necessity and not based on race. Six of the nine judges were in the minority and they were against Korematsu and ruled him guilty and that it was not racially based and that it was a military necessity.
  • Korematsu was eventually convicted and was claimed guilty because it was a military necessity and not a racially based issue.
  • 40 years later the trial was reopened and Korematsu was asked to come back to court for another trial and this time he was found innocent and his criminal record was cleared.
  • By this court case, it changed laws and made equality between all races better and equal. Korematsu vs. United States helped create equality throughout the United States today.
