Social Reasons Make the Japs
More Objectionable than Chinese
Race Problem Involved. Which is
Vital Element in Whole Contention
Japs Cannot be Taken Care of
WASHINGTON, April 17. That
California u absolutely determined
upon exclusion of the JapanpsT, that
Culifoniiaus are xrt like steel for u
white iiinu'n state and why they nro
o set, wns explained here today by
William Kent, congressman of Cali
fornia, in a lengthy statement deal
ing with conditions now agitating
the golden stnte. He said:
"Chinese exclusion was baseiT" on
economic and social reasons. The
economic rcn-om were fallacious.
If the Chinese did our work without
demoralizing our democracy, there
was no rcnoii why be should not do
it. Hut in working be kept out white
labor and thus demoralized our so
cial stntu.
J1h Mure Offensive.
"The same reasons were cited ns
objection to the Japniier-e. Ha wns
found to have a much less valuable
economic (piantitv than the Chinn
ninn. He did not have the came
ideaU of commercial integrity nnd hi
social attitude wn more offensive.
"Tho exclusion laws, undoubtedly
would linvu becH'tiasieir'ngaiiiRt the
.Tnpnuexe if their government lind not
entered into a treaty to provide
against issuing p:issrts to ito lab
oring classes corning to America.
"The practical effect of Japanese
land tennre is shown by Japanese
settlements in some of the most fer
tile jmrtions of California. The
while people slum these sections.
This may and may not be due to the
prejudice of white neighbors, but
California, this far. has been a white
man's country nnd it i tho inten
tion of the iwople of California to
keep it so.
Unco Problem InvohcO.
"It is n curious fact that the
Japanese persistently deny that, in
their ense. a race problem is in
volved and refuse to recognize this ns
a vital element in tho whole conten
tion. To n thoughtful student of tho
situation there can bo no assumption
of siicriority as lying bnek of the
racial question. We may admit, if
we choose, that tho Japanese are, in
some particulars, our suiteriors. We
cannot deny, however, that, taken
rncinlly, they are different from the
white race. They cannot bo as
similated into our population. In
troduction of permanently defined
groups of non-assimilable population
must neeesasrily oreato bitterness
and misunderstanding mid liamK?r
the development of democrnrcy.
"The privileged classes in Califor
niathe land-owners nnd grent em
ployers of labor may clamor for
this cheaper labor, but tho vnst ma
jority of Califoniinns look forward
lo a great state wherein similarity of
population will make nu enligbtencil
democracy possible."
