"Yellow Peril"

"Yellow peril" was a term used by anti-Japanese movement agitators in the early 1900s to describe the "threat" of Japanese immigration as a precursor to a Japanese invasion of the United States. Among the many groups and individuals who propagated the "yellow peril" myth were William Randolph Hearst's newspapers, which convinced many Californians during the early 1900s that a Japanese invasion was imminent.
