"angel island" Discussed on Asian American History 101

"You're listening to Asian American history one O one, a podcast about Asian American history from generally known historical happenings to the deeper cuts that we don't hear about in school, where your hosts, Jen and Ted, the daughter and father team. Welcome to season two episode 21. So let's start with just saying that we were really sad to hear that norm mineta passed away on May 3rd. He's someone we're planning a more complete episode on, but just know that he was an important agent Pacific American public figure. He served as the mayor of San Jose, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. secretary of commerce and the U.S. secretary of transportation. He was the first person of East Asian descent to serve as a U.S. cabinet secretary. He'll be remembered for many accomplishments, and if nothing else, people will hear his name whenever they travel to the San Jose airport. In other news, may 6th mark the 140th anniversary of the Chinese exclusion act. It's not something that our country really recognizes in any significant way. But there was a ceremony at the angel island immigration station to commemorate it this year. On one hand, there's been a lot of progress after a 140 years, but on the other, there are some areas where improvement is slow. Sure, Chinese and other Asians aren't excluded from coming to the country now, and we can all become naturalized citizens. But there are still challenges from rising anti Asian hate to specific Asian Pacific American groups, continuing to be underserved. It's important to commemorate things like the exclusion act because we want to own our history and be better. Work towards true equity and inclusion. If you're interested in learning more about the Chinese exclusion act, we covered it in season one, episode two, and we also talk about angel island and its role in enforcing racist policies in season one, episode 24. Now on to a couple of quick shout outs and celebrations, we wanted to thank Anne foster the host of the vulgar history podcast..

No you live in sausalito and you mentioned that's just a fifteen minute ferry ride away from easy and then when you get to sausalito or there can you rent boats or out on the bay from sausalito. Has that something you do from san francisco. No you could rent their kayak companies in sausalito either. As walks most people come and walk along the water. It's got a great view. Back to san francisco but sure you can get on kayaks. There are people rent bikes and bike over the bridge to to saas alito. If you can believe it that'd be it's a long one but it's fun and it's you know you see it all you rent the bike down in about fisherman's wharf and the need ride all the way over the bridge and down the hill into sausalito.

Just fishery pollock, fishery and water politics, But that's it Simple. You know that shows you where their pride the you know the fish and Wildlife who was supposed to be the custodial force in our Her natural resources here for as far as fish is concerned. Their priority is not with the fish. It's politics. Um, anyway, will be an interesting meeting. You know, every every year we start the salmon process in February late February, Santa Rosa Water District. That's where the first reading really start to. So it will be interesting next year to look at the looking back at this year and see and see some of the there's vast areas that were made in the predictions. Yeah. Yeah, well, back to the fishing. Um, So where in the bay? Um we're in the bay. Are they getting the hell of it and stripers? So mainly in the center. Part of the day you go from Alcatraz over the Angel Island in the rock piles the centers there. Those were some good fishing there and then out on the coast on both bars, the both the north for in the south part There was a making halibut and, uh, and striped bass there and then the guys were able to sneak down. Get some rockfish when the ties backed off and then come back up and hit the tides again for the bass in the hell But so, Yeah potluck guys, They're all by themselves. They have the whole coast of themselves right now. And, uh, for the contrarian angler, One instance wants to have a great day on a lot like trip.

So, yeah, That's what I'm hearing a lot of nice. There's some big fish to just less real quick as in San Francisco at the at the Fisherman's work there yesterday, picking up some stuff, and there was a box full of premium £25 fishing over that A buyer had put an order in for smoking.

"Last night doing the tour and there's made all up and down the south vein in the Central Bay two. So okay. I think for the guys for this gifts this morning, they can spread out. Alcatraz, Angel Island and the Berkeley Flats. And if they want to take adventure out on the coast, just be cautious and watch. Watch yourself. You suppose there's any party boats or six backers not book for the opening of salmon? Not that I'm aware you if you want to wait a couple days, you know, it's it's as you get into that week. You know, there's there's a room on a variety, different boats, so that first week there's certainly some some availability and, uh Yeah, I think I think like I said, everything is going to come into the into form here in the next next week here, so really nice. And by what you open the program with Andy, it sounds like a whole bunch of stripers moved into the bay. Yeah, the variety different spots out on the coast eel when the guys were fishing, the halibut on on the north and south far and then also a few of the select hot spots inside the bay there at the rock pile. And all the rocky spots. They're they had some nice bass fishing. Yeah, and I think you know we'll see down on the south side to the South side's got whales and tons of bait down there, too. So we might see some fishing down there as well. Like Piedra Point, Montara. All that area down there, Pacific. Prepare with all that food. We're going to find out how many salmon there really are. So thank you, Andy. Enjoy looking forward the next Saturday, huh? Yeah, absolutely Well said that we should have some good indications by then. Thanks, Andy. Thanks, Annie Giuliano.

"One more week. And Andy Giuliano can stop. You can start sleeping again. For one thing, you can stop shaking. He's so nervous about it. He wants to be it such a good season. We're talking about the salmon opener next Saturday. If he can gather himself together to talk to us. He's on the phone right now. Good morning. Good morning, Bob. Yep. We're counting down and, uh And in the meantime, we've got some really good fishing going on here in the bay and out on the coast there, too, So I think it's going to be a fine summer. Hey, I'll tell you one thing. The last couple of weeks we've really seen An uptick in just about everything, haven't we? Yes, we had. I think the last couple days here where the best best two days of the year with one boat had 10 limits of halibut Yesterday, another one that had, uh, for 16 people. They had 32 halibut and 32 baths. And so really good fishing out along the coast for the halibut in the strength baths right now, and the coastal rockfish has been really good. We had some nice weather along the coast this week. So a lot of guys mixed up the trips between the hell of it. Some of the six pack boats did little halibut got a couple of halibut arrived and got Brock Fish land to do so. Really nice fishing and then we did get some really positive reports. As you know, the commercial guys started in our area on the 16th and we had some really good reports from them below the main Fairlawn Island. And that down towards the south boarded the ship channel that gets had Good fishing the first day and then some really solid fishing the next couple days before the weather on the outside, boom off, But you're like maybe to 100 fish and a couple of that opening day and commercial. And and then it went down from there, which it always does. It never does. States the same fruit. Uh, so and er there out in, uh North or south of the Farallones. That's where they're going to get the salmon. The report that I got the ones but first hand report that I got would have been to the south Southwest between the edge of the shipping lane. Due out to the below the Fairlawn Islands, which should be pretty. I would say pretty typical for this area. I know the inshore areas for the guys that are fishing, the rockfish the skiffs. And the small six pack boats have been fishing inland, the South side and the North side I I know the water looks great. It's dark water, which is has all that life and a lot of anchovy, so Yeah, I think you know, I think just like we would You know what there's always unintended consequences is you know when we open this when we open up fishing, and we don't have Sam, and then we get a lot of pressure on the jalape. And there are times that the scores down here and I think really, some of the classic Bay Area fishing is in store here. We'll get everybody spread out. We get the salmon guys on the salmon. And the blood bait potluck guys. You know where they're supposed to be there and and you should see everybody returned with some nice fish. Yeah. Well, tell you, you're right. Looks like a good summer. Uh, you know, by were the commercials caught two fish and makes me curious. A lot of your boats for the Oprah kind of head southwest toward deep reef. That might be a good sign for that area, huh? Yeah, they're probably start a little bit high a little bit higher and then work their way down. You know, you know, we still have another week. We have some decent weather this week with just a light southerly breeze. So some of the guys may take a look up towards Drakes Bay and double point in that area to or out out inside the North Carolina island, too, so Some offshore. Sounds like it's very good. And I did hear some skiffs some smaller. I'm sorry. Some smaller commercial boats did get some fish outside the ducks. Very reef, too. So I? It seemed like there was a decent area efficient a couple. Okay? But we and we have to keep in mind that the commercial guys that go someplace and they fish for four or five hours and they get one or two fish they're out of there. Uh, you know, I mean, they don't. That's not what they're there for. So it's hard to judge what's going on. I mean, a sport fishermen can go out and not get any fish for four and then all of a sudden they'll turn on. But The commercial guys got to make a living, They need to find concentrations of fish. Yes, definitely looking for a bigger, bigger concentration, bigger location of fish where they can, where they can really get some fish. So, uh, but I think we've kind of seen all season. We've started down below there in Monterey that there are fish out here. And and then it just looks like it's going to line up just perfectly Yeah. Other other rock here are the rock cod boats picking up any salmon. Incidentally, Yeah, they are. They've been they've been having they've been bumping into him all season, one of the potluck boats that was fishing on. I'm not sure if they were in the north part of the south for yesterday. They caught and released two salmon two while they were live bait fishing, So yeah, I think there's there's a lot of different fish in different areas. Yeah, well, I'll tell you what, Andy, you know, we We know what the, uh the forecast is for, and it's not Real good, but you know, just just as much as they're wrong in one direction, they can be wrong in another direction. And I know it's too early to tell this but just thinking back over the years of what it looked like before our salmon opener. Um, hit us in the face. Uh, these are pretty good signs up and down the coast. Yeah, And I think if if there's anything that might be different in the over the past few years this year is that we've had really excellent ocean conditions. So we've had a lot of Northwest wind, which, if you're on a boat is not very good. But if your fish in the water it's really good, because it's providing all the upwelling a lot of anchovy. A lot of shrimp. And so we've got great ocean conditions, which that's played this at different times. When we have a closure was that 12 years ago about 13 years ago that was primarily due to ocean conditions so completely opposite. And this is all favorable for any of the fish that did make it down the system. You know, they were welcomed with just a big menu of fish to feed off of. Yeah, yeah, Rockfish is an anthro V squared all that so So that's what one that's the one differences here. Yeah, Yeah, uh, going into a very healthy environment. Which is good for survival and growth rates. So, uh, now you mentioned it earlier, but, uh, the bait are you find out the rockfish people that I mean, these skippers are pretty much Aware of what's going on out there are they seeing lots of schools debate off the coast of San Francisco? Yes, all. In fact, I would say all seasons since we started in in, uh, April, 1st on the rockfish that it's been great looking water all the way out in the deeper water. It's been like I said that darker water that holds all the feeds got the shrimp, anchovies, short belly rockfish, all that so they can do and that's even kneel for the Raqqa guys. That's been a hamper them a little bit because there's so much feet in the water. Yeah, the rockfish you'll get kind of selective. But as I said, for more, the predatory fish, the salmon. Um it's just it's perfect conditions for them, So, yeah, so I think we'll be in good shape. Er yeah. About the bait inside the bay. Well debated. The receivers has been good quality. Those guys have been having a to Huck really hard to keep all the bait supply up, but they've got seven or eight pens over there that they can rotate to cure. And we were in that We were out in the South Bay last night doing the tour and there's made all up and down the south vein in the Central Bay two. So okay. I think for the guys for this gifts this morning, they can spread out. Alcatraz, Angel Island and the Berkeley Flats. And if they want to take adventure out on the coast, just be cautious and watch. Watch yourself. You suppose there's any.

Here's what we learned about like malcolm x. We learned about martin luther king. There's holidays and stuff but for oh my goodness but day like he also mentioned In his testimony the though four hundred forty second regiment during world war two and how they are the most decorated unit in like the us military history and they were comprised completely entirely of japanese american soldiers And it's like you don't learn about that like you. Don't learn about the whole bringing cheap labor from all these asian communities and like the segregated chinese schools and asian schools and like yeah you learned about japanese internment camps and during world war two.

The U.S. Has A History Of Linking Disease With Race And Ethnicity

"Okay. So today we're talking about the suspicion and harassment of asians and asian americans as the krona virus spreads and this kind of fear actually has a long history in the united states right gene a very long history and actually what we learned from. Eric lee is that the seeds of this discourse of china and asia being unsanitary and crowded those seeds were planted long before chinese immigration to the us the teeming hordes of millions living in health and then as americans who travel to china and then came back to the united states. They spread those ideas. Unfortunate the own brand for the us low so right in the mid eighteen hundreds you have the first waves of chinese immigrants coming over to find fortune in the california gold rush and they also become a source of cheap labor working as farmhands building railroads etc and eventually this becomes a source of tension. Exactly so when the domestic economy takes a downturn different immigrant groups start competing for these previously undesirable jobs and you start seeing harassment even massacres of chinese workers but erica says that the idea of chinese immigrants being dirty and disease. That's still with us. We know from the very beginning As americans in general are starting to debate the so-called problem of chinese immigration. They are explicitly tying china chinese people chinese spaces with disease and contagion. Historians have shown that the rhetoric is about chinatown as plague spots as pools of laboratories of infection. Erica says that way back. In the late nineteenth century we really started to see specific policies that reflect this thinking around chinese as a threat to public. Oh okay give me an example of that. So erica told us about quarantine that happened in one thousand nine hundred in san francisco when the discovery bluebonnets plague in chinatown Bannock plague that's a potential deadly bacterial. Disease the black death right. People believe rats. Broad across the pacific steamship was unlikely. Source of the disease. Erica says san francisco officials at the time. Saw the chinese immigrants as vermin infested. So all of chinatown was placed under quarantine. And there were these periodic. Campaigns to quote disinfect chinatown flooding basements in that district with acid washing the walls with lie tearing down old buildings that rhetoric by the way erica says has been applied to a lot of immigrant groups throughout history but there is a particular way in which it has been racialized with chinese chinese as dog eaters as eaters of weird and strange animals including rats and mice and that they if they are eating and consuming rats that are known to spread disease than chinese people as a race are also carriers of disease so what happened then was. San francisco's quarantine. So the plague became racialized blamed on a group of people. The city ordered an immediate quarantine of chinatown with orders to remove all whites from the affected area so so white. Residents of san francisco were ordered to leave chinatown but chinese people could not. It's such an intense thing to know and accept this history and realize it's been with us for a really long time. It's been with us. And we haven't really grappled with all of this of course is happening against the backdrop of the chinese exclusion act which was passed in eighteen. Eighty two and it prevented chinese laborers from entering the united states. Which this time of heightened anti-chinese rhetoric and sentiment that law would actually mark the first time the u. has banned the immigration of an entire ethnic group. So when you and your co hosts shreen. Marcel marashi spoke to eric harley. Eric told you a very personal story about her grandfather. And what happened to him when he immigrated to the us and it's really relevant to what we're talking about today so erica's grandfather came to the us through angel island right angel island. It's the ellis island of the west coast. It was in san francisco bay and there was this whole special system of scrutiny for chinese immigrants in particular so erica's grandfather like so. Many chinese immigrants angel island was pulled aside and inspected separately from other asian immigrants because people believe that chinese immigrants were carriers of disease. What a way to come into a country and she said that her grandfather never told her that story directly but she was interested in it and because she's historian she actually took the records of her grandparents interogations and specifically. She found her grandfather's medical exam from angel. It was it was nothing like anything. I've read before. Immigration officials ordered my grandfather to be subjected to the most invasive medical exam that i've seen in hundreds of these records so they had the medical doctor at angel island examined him for for diseases but also to measure every aspect of his body. His teeth his his genitals his. You know it's a his height to determine what age he was to determine weather his claim of being seventeen when he was immigrating was actually true and they included just all of these detailed notes in a record and it was. It was quite shocking to read. That's really just I mean i hear the story. And i think it's important at a time like this to hear stories like this so We've been talking specifically about chinese immigration but as you mentioned earlier this history of public health and hygiene efforts and how it gets mixed up with race and ethnicity. It's also happened to other immigrant. Groups right i mean. This is something that erica talks about a lot in her book which is of course about xenophobia in the united states but it wasn't just chinese immigrants who were being targeted in this way. I mean if you look at what was happening around the same time on the southern border mexican immigrants. The us were being treated very similarly. This is one of the ways in which to phobia works. It's it uses an already existing playbook certain immigrants are are threats there there threats because they bring crime also because they take away jobs but also because they they are starting genetically carriers of disease. And surprise american policymakers setup immigration procedures for mexicans. That looked a lot like what was happening to the chinese. On the west coast and when mexican immigrants arrived across the border they were routinely subjected to invasive humiliating and harmful disinfecting baths using pesticides to route out laos but also to cleanse mexican people's their clothing and their baggage before entering the united states. I mean just the fact that mexicans were seen as carrying disease in the same way that chinese were and that this pattern is repeated. Is really interesting. This is much harsher. Then what happened at ellis island where european immigrants certainly faced scrutiny. But the the medical exams were known as six second physicals and chinese people in particular. Still carry around that stigma. And we're seeing that procession playoff when it comes to corona virus. Absolutely i you know. We're exile eighty and fear out there right now about getting sick. That is getting tangled up in this legacy and you know. I'm picturing who are listening to this and they're thinking yes. This history is real. I know this sounds really bad. But i'm just worried about eating at a chinese restaurant gene and emily just buried and i i just. I'm worried about sitting next to someone who is asian. what do i do. That's not how disease works. We actually put this question to erica and she said With each headline with each new case with each new bizarre choice of photo for a new story lines the flames of anxiety right now in the us but racist scapegoating and outright discrimination does not have to accompany the things. It is an unfortunate echo of the past. But it doesn't have to be

Joe McConnell for cake You Betty Jo McConnell's traffic support today comes from Lucky and Lucky, California. I'm Dave Freeman with a KQED perspective. Now at 8 43 this morning, the pandemic has taken a terrible toll on the small businesses that often defined the character of a neighborhood. One of those is Chinatown. Here is Larry Gen. Lee, one of the indelible stars of the strong A pandemic will certainly be the devastating impact on the businesses in the wonderfully iconic neighborhoods. Of our beautiful city. I grew up on the border of China town in North Beach, and I've witnessed both neighborhoods undergo multiple transitions. Nona's drastic is this On a recent trip to Chinatown, I was stunned to see how covert it decimated so many businesses. Recall how subdued businesses were after the Loma Prieta earthquake, but this pales in comparison. So many boarded up storefronts, empty outdoor dining Parkins. Ever familiar scenes of roast duck and pork are scarce. Busting dim sum partners have closed their doors. What has happened to the Chinatown I've known Have long since moved away from Chinatown. But as okay she goes, You can't take the Chinatown out of the boy. However, I realized we lose more than just stores as we see a longstanding businesses disappear from China town's landscape. This is where my great grandfather and grandfather lived when they first arrived to this country because they were forced to stay within his boundaries. Recent immigrants. Chinatown still serves as a center of their lives, a refuge from the rest of the city, which is more difficult for them to navigate. I feel the loss of the comforting memories of familiar scenes and anchor me to the past. There's a bakery where my parents bought my favorite coffee crunch cake and custard tarts for birthdays. Restaurant where we get the best fried chicken wings. The story I purchased my first walk. These memories of Chinatown around me and my Children generation a sense of continuity and connection to the journey of their forebears. The power of his history binds us together. Although I'm not ready to write Chinatowns obituary, I know some businesses one recover from this. Nonetheless, I have faith in the resilience of Chinese Americans. We're starting a lot. Not unaccustomed to catastrophe and during Angel Island and the exclusion Act. With the advent of the new year of the Ox, comes a renewed hope for harmony and prosperity. I'm sure the neighborhood will rise again. With the perspective I'm Larry. Generally. Larry Gen. Lee is psychotherapist in San Francisco.

You know that feeling you get when you take a wrong turn and go like three or four miles in the wrong direction and have to go all the way back the other way. Yeah. Imagine being Allen west and having to do that, that times infinity that times infinity. So there are some things that we know about this. From watching the movie. But the movie writers based the movie on a book And the book author a believe basis stuff on interviews with Allen West, the Allen West head with the Bureau of Prisons in the FBI, because basically everything we know about the escape from Alcatraz. Came from the mouth of Allen west. Yes. So he made a deal. He said Listen, I'll tell you all about it, but you can't throw me in here for longer because I tried to escape prison. You've got to give me immunity for that attempted escape. And let's be honest guys. It really wasn't much of an attempt. Can you give me a break here? I had to make the sad walk of shame back. I have a feeling that that definitely factored into their decision to give him immunity like man. Probably. So you really got a hard luck case, so he makes a deal and says, I'll tell you everything. But again, this is just his account of it. One thing that kind of jumped out is maybe it's not the most accurate account was that he was like, Yeah, I was the mastermind. I thought up the whole thing from the start. Yeah, And I don't know if that's quite true, because it seems like Clint Eastwood did. Yeah, Certainly. The movie's basically should be called Colin. The Frank Morris story. He's the main character. Everybody else is a side character. It really kind of down played a lot of the contributions by the England Brothers. Certainly by Allen West doesn't even use Allen West name so I don't know how much of an influence is from that movie. Or if that movie was just based on the general idea that Frank Morris was The mastermind and the leader that he was a very intelligent person and kind of a born leader. From what I know. So it's just not clear whether Allen West actually came up with this plan or not. Was he the one who sewed the raft all this time, and he got left behind Or maybe he had really weak arms and this is just what he told the The Bureau of Prisons investigators. It was the reason why he never was able to chip out of the his cell. Who knows, But just so just bear in mind from this point forward, we're just going to go on with with. This is gospel, but all of this is coming from Allen West mouth. He was the one that was left behind I I feel like in the movie. He got to the point where he could not jump up by himself and reached the great Is that right? Yeah. So in the movie, they help each other up, right? And he would, he would have had to have done it himself, and he couldn't jump. He has kept jumping and jumping and couldn't make it. Yes, but from what? I know, he made it up to the roof and was pinned down on the roof by that that guard in the watchtower. Yeah, but that was it was a guard in sight. No, no, no, no, You're right in the movie. It was like that. So the plan was and this is again from West account said was to sail this Rafter, I guess. Paddle this raft. Across the bay to Angel Island about a mile away little over and he said From there, they were going to rest for a little bit. Get their bearings, Stash everything and then swim to the mainland across what's called the RECKON. Straits. Toh Maire Marin County.

"They did this for weeks and weeks and weeks. With these paper mache a bust, and it worked. They never got noticed. No, they didn't because of me. Remember like they were working between the end of dinner and lights out, so they just seem to have made it look like they went to bed early. On DH, put the paper machine busts and make the guys sure are sleepy. Yeah, they must have run over you, Frank. I got a lot of questions about this, but I'm not can investigate it further, exactly. So finally they get to this point where the great is the bars are removed from this great enough that they can slip through, and they realize that they have they have successfully Penetrated to the exterior of the building. That's right, OK, they're on the roof. Will they know they can get on the roof? Now they know there's go night adventure. They got up there at least wants to be like, all right. I don't know. I haven't heard anything like that. And there's a lot of questions about why this particular night was this The very first night that they were able to get out and they're like, Let's go. Which seems likely to me or were they waiting for a particular night or like you said they tested it before they do any dry runs? We don't really know that But we do know is that on Monday, June 11th 1962 JW, angling Clarence Anglin and Frank Morris all left their cells. And the first thing Frank Morris did was go to help. Alan West finished puncturing the hole through his cell wall. Poor Alan still had not done this yet. He's like, Come on. We got to go. But apparently part of the plan was to help him punched the whole out the rest of the way. And then he would escape with them. Frank Morris apparently tried in vain and went off to get clearance. England Tio. Come try, they traded off. I think Clarence tried. He couldn't do it either. So I guess he had the very Ah Uncomfortable. Government will be right back. I gotta go. I gotta go shake the tree or something like that. I'll be right back. You stay here. And that was the last anybody ever saw of Frank Morris, Clarence Anglin or JW England from from that moment until today s so they get to that corridor, they climb up to the roof. The cell block. And then through that ventilation shaft, that great is no longer a problem, and they put it away. Alan West, They could just barely hear him saying like You're coming back right any minute now, you said. So there's this rain cover on top. They push that thing off. And this this all makes some noise and in the movie they Ah They kind of accurately displayed. That, too, is some clinking and clanging around and I don't think in the movie they did this But in real life, supposedly there was so much noise that they did, like a little 45 minute. Kind of a search of the area, right? Didn't see any good going on. No, they didn't go up on the roof, That's for sure. And they basically didn't find anything. So the guy's a route they shimmy about 50 ft. To the ground the A drain pipe, which is how you always do it go that perimeter fence, and I'm sure the perimeter fence was fine. But I think the idea was that they're never getting out anyway. So I don't think it had, like 15 Ft of razor wire anything like that. I think it did have double barbed wire, at least for shares. Nothing for it. It's not like concertina wire. Anything like that around one in the morning Allen West Poor Alan West, He finally gets that so great, broken open. I'm sure he just thinks all right. I'm going to catch up to these guys, and it's going to be all good. And I'm getting out of here. Follow that same route. It's been a couple of hours. At this point, though, he saw that these were genuinely good dudes It seemed like because they did leave him a paddle. I don't think we mentioned they made paddles out of chair, legs and the screws and nuts and bolts and a pontoon that was all inflated form. And he got a little snack over rice Krispie treat Rice Krispie treat the little pruno little shot of pruno for his for his courage, and then he looks over terrible timing, and there's a guard in a new position. That basically could see anything that he tries to do. Yeah, From that point forward, he's visually pinned down on the roof. He can't do anything. So this is around 1, A.m. or something. And he figures OK, the guard will eventually move. Well, Allen West is the guard never moved for until dawn. Doesn't this guy pee? Right? Doesn't never shake the tree. Um and he didn't. He did not shake. The trees stayed put. And so eventually, Allen West was forced to climb back down the ventilation shaft. Back down from the roof of the cell blocks at three stories back to his cell that he had just a few hours earlier. Finally, after months, punched a hole through and he went and laid down and just waited for the heat to come down on him. And indeed it did. Because at the 7 A.m. bed check. Three dummy heads were discovered, or three inmates really head should have been. Ah, and the prison just went berserk. You know that feeling you get when you take a wrong turn and Go like three or four miles in the wrong direction and have to go all the way back the other way. Yeah.

How did San Francisco's most popular tourist attraction get its name? Well, Michael Ellis says the story may surprise You hears his perspective when the Moors invaded and conquered Spain and Portugal in the eighth century A D. They brought with them more than just a perv architecture. Many of the Spanish words that begin with a El alma rant et al Madain. Alka Don alcohol, for example, are Arabic and origin. A L is the article the to the Moors. The bucket on an irrigation wheel that scoops up water was called in Alcatraz. They incorrectly thought Pelican scooped up water and their large bill to carry to their young in the desert. So they named the Pelican Alcatraz. The Spanish seafarers. That word eventually came to me, not just pelicans, but any sea bird. When the first European Juan Manuel de Ayala, sailed into San Francisco Bay in 17 75. The local Aloni madam, of course, these native peoples already had names for all the geographic features of the area. But I didn't stop old won his first morning in the bay. He was anchored near a tiny, dense patch of trees. So he named that place Sausalito, which means a little thicket of willows. The first island that he visited became Eastland Day, Los Angeles or Angel Island. After the Spanish tradition of naming places after the Catholic feast days closest to the discovery date and nearby island, he christened Alcatraz for the thousands of sea birds wheeling around it. However, the island Ayala named Alcatraz was actually the one we now call your Buena Island. What? How that happened, and Englishmen mapping the San Francisco Bay in 18 26 made a mistake. Captain Beachy accidentally transcribed the name Alcatraz on to a much smaller nearby island, thereby cementing that error into the Royal Navy's nautical charts. You're Balbuena. The good Herb Island was probably named for the very abundant native men found Twining all over the island. So a faulty observation. Our European invasion and a typo resulted in the name of the number one tourist destination in the Bay Area..

The Little Known History of Japanese Internment on Angel Island

"Months before the coronavirus outbreak bay curious received a question from a listener wanting to know about what happened on Angel Island during World War. Two turns out the island played a very specific role in the internment of Japanese-americans. Though very few people know much about it reporter. Cecilia lay headed to the island to learn more. It's a picturesque pre pandemic Sunday morning in San Francisco when a border fairy to Ireland under way. The last time I visited the island was during middle school field trip. They learned about the Chinese exclusion. Act Saw the poems that Chinese immigrants had carved onto the walls. But I didn't learn anything about the Japanese being held here during World War Two. So I'm on my way to meet the only expert who knows this part of the island's little known history house and me any and that's what the immigrants were classified as and also a number of the drop in on Grant Din who is teaching Angel Islands Own tour guides about the internment of Japanese residents. That happened here my name is Scranton. I'm a volunteer with the Angel and the Immigration Station Foundation. Seventy eight years ago after Pearl Harbor had broken out and president. Franklin D Roosevelt signed executive order nine. Oh six which authorized the rounding up of Japanese immigrants and Japanese Americans who were citizens into relocation camps in one thousand nine hundred eighty two Japanese residents all along the west coast were arrested because the US government suspected that many of them had allegiances to Japan and could secretly be working on their behalf. Fishermen had every opportunity to watch the movement of our ships. Japanese farmers were living close to vital aircraft plants. So as a first step all. Japanese were required to move from critical areas. Such these more than one hundred ten thousand Japanese American civilians including children hatch abandon their homes and businesses. We're taking two racetracks fairgrounds for the army. Almost overnight had build assembly center. They lived here until new. Pioneer communities could be completed on federally owned lands in the Interior. They were relocated to remote camps throughout the US surrounded by armed guards and barbed wire. They lived like this for the duration of the war. About two thirds of them. Were born right here in the US and then there was another group people the US government considered to be the biggest threat and the most dangerous. This is the group that grants researched all the people who are rounded up during this program by the Department of Justice by the FBI were Japanese immigrants and so by that means they were considered enemy aliens. Unlike the other Japanese civilian internees a majority of these quotes enemy. Aliens were men who were born in Japan. They faced interogations and were separated from their families during their internment. These men were singled out because the government had been keeping an eye on them for a while as far back as five years before Japan. Bombed Pearl Harbor even before World War. Two broke out. There were dossiers being kept on Japanese immigrants who are in this country both in Hawaii and on the mainland the FBI was watching anyone who had close ties to Japan or held prominent roles in the Japanese community. Buddhist priests language schoolteachers shopkeepers. Newspaper editors anyone who was considered a leader or expert in Japanese culture especially martial arts. I found several cases of people who are in Kendo or judo and so they went to Japan for meats and so they were often put on the list of potential saboteurs. The rounding up of these Japanese residents happened very quickly. Homes were raided without warrants. Papers were confiscated about seventeen thousand. Total Japanese immigrants were arrested and seven hundred of them were from the West Coast. Mostly from Hawaii sent here to the bay area to Angel Island.
