Harry Truman a Racist?

The attacks – the only time nuclear weapons have ever been used in world history to date – killed tens of thousands of people and shocked the planet with the scale of their destruction.

There has been much controversy over the decision to bomb Japan and some speculation that it might have been racially motivated (given that the U.S. military did not drop such weapons on European civilian targets).

Anti-Japanese discrimination was widespread in the United States long before the war, as exemplified by immigration restrictions the government imposed upon the Japanese..

The US restricted Asian immigration and didn't use atomic bombs on Germany.

Was Democrat Harry Truman's reason to use such a destructive weapon based on race?
