Is the current rise in hate crimes similar to what happened to JCs during WWII?

Racism is racism then and now. I think to a huge extent racism against JCs is now minimal as compared to times past. Institutional racism is almost gone but bad apple racism remains, driven by personal animosity from upbringing, economic stress or sometimes ideology.

Things have changed. Things are much better now thanks largely to legislation to eliminate institutional racism and education of the public especially through public school social studies curricula and the public media.

There remains a huge issue of racism against the indigenous people, not only in Canada but around the world. The racism against JCs is minor or almost non existent by comparison.
