Back in 1941 when the Japanese Kamikaze's attacked Pearl Harbor in Hawaii the American people called them terrorists and the Japanese were generalized in this maner. Today after the events on September 11, Muslims are now perceived as terrorists. Does our racial profiling of people fade after time or does our society just pass down the torch of that word terrorist to the next group of people that attack us and generalizations are here to stay?
