 Japanese American - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Americans of Japanese ancestry living in the western United States, including the Nisei were, forcibly interned with their parents and children (the Sansei Japanese Americans) during WWII.
Japanese Americans also have the oldest demographic structure of any ethnic group in the U.S.; in addition, in the younger generations, due to intermarriage with whites and other Asians, part-Japanese are more common than full Japanese, and it appears as if this physical assimilation will continue at a rapid rate.

Older Sansei who were living in the western United States during WWII were forcibly interned with their parents and grandparents (Issei Japanese Americans) after the issuance of Executive Order 9066.
The Sansei played a leading activist role in a redress movement, which culminated in a bill signed by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 which provided an official apology and $20,000 restitution for each of the 60,000 survivors (about half of the total internees).
Most Sansei were born during the Baby Boom after the end of World War II.

 H-Net Review: Jonathan Dresner on Nisei/Sansei: Shifting Japanese American Identities and Politics
Japanese American acquiescence in wartime internment and the emphasis on educational and economic success has created an impression of political apathy that is, in the opinion of Takahashi, undeserved.
Japanese began migrating to Hawai'i in the 1880s, and when Hawai'i became a territory of the United States at the turn of the century, Japanese began emigrating to North America by the tens of thousands.
The biographical discussion of Sansei is limited to two individuals, who are both Nisei and Sansei by birth; more troubling is the fact that both are progressive activists, so the political and racial thought of the larger community is not portrayed with the kind of depth, humanity or complexity that characterizes the earlier chapters.
