The writer notes the prejudice expressed in the U.S. against the newly arrived Japanese immigrants. But while the general population is responding to the Japanese as "colored foreigners" and treating them negatively, government officials are responding to them as "novel" and unique. The writer suspects the difference is based in money and class status.
