"On June 28, 1946, ten months after American troops landed in Japan, Japanese radio announced that a child of mixed Japanese and American parentage had been born that morning. The announcer called the baby a symbol of love and friendship between Japan and the United States: "a rainbow across the Pacific." SCAP [US Occupation administration offices] headquarters immediately issued an order to fire the announcer for condoning fraternization."
