Snow Falling on Cedars Chapter 13

Hatsue was at the town's Buddhist Chapel when she and her family heard the news about Pearl Harbor being bombed. There were many reports of racist insults and threats against Amity Harbor's Japanese townspeople. Hatsue is very worried--she knows that she looks Japanese, and that her parents speak little English. Ishmael's father Arthur begins printing articles about patriotic Japanese residents. Ishmael tells him that this is biased reporting--that quality reporting just tells the facts. Arthur asks, "But which facts? Which facts do we print, Ishmael?" Chapter 13, pg. 188 Arthur's newspaper begins to lose subscribers, although some people do write to tell him that they support his antiracist position.
