This work focuses on the reporting done in the four decades from 1882 to 1924 by the "Chronicle" and the "Examiner", the two major San Francisco newspapers, to determine how and why these immigrant groups were singled out for attention by the press and the legal system. For half a century Japanese and Chinese people were targets of a dual campaign: to bar them from entering the United States and to restrict the activities of those who were here. This effort was initiated, developed, and sustained on the West Coast where most of the Chinese and Japanese were located. The present study reveals a story of racial bias which dominated the relationship of the Japanese and Chinese and their new community. The two papers' prejudicial reporting shows conclusively that this racial bias dwarfed other motives for exclusion of both Chinese and Japanese, and affected bilateral international relations as well.
