Kamikaze (神風, de kami « dieu » et kaze « vent ») A l'époque d'Edo, le mot désigne une tempête en partie légendaire qui, en 1281, aurait mis en déroute la flotte de Kubilai Khan et stoppé les tentatives d'invasions mongoles. Le mot fut repris à l'automne 1944 par la Marine impériale pour désigner la première Unité d'attaque spéciale (Tokubetsu kōgeki-tai 特別攻撃隊, souvent abrégé en Tokkōtai) composée de pilotes devant projeter leurs appareils sur des bâtiments ennemis.

Back in 1941 when the Japanese Kamikaze's attacked Pearl Harbor in Hawaii the American people called them terrorists and the Japanese were generalized in this maner. Today after the events on September 11, Muslims are now perceived as terrorists. Does our racial profiling of people fade after time or does our society just pass down the torch of that word terrorist to the next group of people that attack us and generalizations are here to stay?
