First they came for the Muslims, and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Muslim.

Then they came for the Immigrants, and I did not speak out —

Because I was not an Immigrant.

Because I was not Transgender.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 9066

On February 19, 1942, Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which forced all Japanese-Americans, regardless of loyalty or citizenship, to evacuate the West Coast.

Americans of German and Italian ancestry did not have to evacuate or be interned.

Because they were not to be perceived as a Threat.

Because of the COLOR of their SKIN.
