Best Answer

The Japanese attack on the Pearl Harbor complex in 1941 served as a a galvanizing factor on the US. Suddenly, amid all the villains and heroes tossed about in the press of the day, Japan stood out clearly as the "Yellow Peril." The Japanese people were consistently and regularly vilified in the US press, and public opinion followed.

The attack on Pearl Harbor also served to alert all the defensive forces along the US west coast. For the remainder of the war, California, Oregon and Washington practiced blackout routines.
