AMERICAN TEENAGERS: TINKER VS DES MOINES JAPANESE AMERICANS: KOREMATSU "A 6-3 majority, on the Court upheld Korematsu's conviction. Writing for the majority,Justice Hugo Black held that although "all legal restrictions which curtail the civil rights of a single racial group are immediately suspect" and subject to tests of "themost rigid scrutiny, "not all such restrictions are inherently unconstitutional."Pressing public necessity," he wrote, "may sometimes justify the existence of suchrestrictions; racial antaganism never can." "In Korematsu's case, the Court accepted the U.S. military's argument that theloyalties of some Japanese Americans resided not with the United States but with their ancestral country, and that because seperating "the disloyal from the loyal" was a logistical impossibility, the internment order had to apply to all to all JapaneseAmericans within teh restricted area. Balancing the country's stake in the war and national security against the "suspect" curtailment of the rights of a particular racial group, the Court decided that the nation's security concerns outweighed the Constitution's promise of equal rights."
