Kizuna 2020: Nikkei Kindness and Solidarity During the COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID Ghost Town

テリー・ワタダ

In November 2019, I was in a US hospital for five days. My temperature was hovering around 102°F. I sweat profusely, followed by the chills. I couldn’t get out of bed without collapsing to the floor. I was dizzy, I had lost my appetite, I was extremely weak.

An Important Anniversary

テリー・ワタダ

Most of these “atrocities” were created by hakujin but Nikkei have carried on ignorant of the implications. Below is a list ...

テリー・ワタダ

Many decades ago (more than I care to count), I and my parents were watching evening television in our eastend Toronto home when a knock came at the front door. My parents were not expecting anyone, so it was a curious event.

Back Where I Belong

テリー・ワタダ

As I watched the circus of race and denigration that is the White House, Congress, and American society in July, I tried to remember how some Democrats are at times politically expedient and opportunistic and how most Republicans are hypocritical and cowardly. Why can’t right-wing politicians just call the ...

Community Centre vs Cultural Centre

テリー・ワタダ

Back in the day, when the brain trust of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC) in Toronto was arguing about a new building, the question of whether the organization was to be a Cultural centre (as it was identified) or a Community centre for what was left of the Japanese ...
