On every episode of Jeopardy there are always a few questions that people remember long after the episode is over. Questions that resonate deeply within people for various reason. As example Aaron Rodgers’ Jeopardy question indirectly exposing evils of American history is going viral.
The Jeopardy question Aaron Rodgers asked was, “In 2015 Congress authorized payments of $4.44 Million to each of these people, $10,000 for each day of captivity”. The question stumped all three contestants, but the answers they gave all pointed out evil things America has done in history.
The contestant named Jobeth answered “Who are slaves”, the contestant named Scott answered “Who are Guantanamo Bay prisoners”, and the contestant named Brandon answered “Who are Japanese internment camp survivors”. The correct answer to the question was “the Iran hostages”.
In giving the wrong answers it showed the sheer amount of evil things that could have been the answer, but still wasn’t right.
What were the Japanese Internment Zones?
The Japanese Internment zones were created when people of Japanese descent in Los Angeles were forced to leave their homes and live in custody of American troops in 1942. They were not allowed to buy land or return to their homes under circumstances until the war was over.
What Happened to Guantanamo Bay Prisoners?
It’s alleged that in the early 2000s prisoners at Guantanamo Bay were tortured in a secret CIA program allegedly approved by George Bush. Documents claim that prisoners were held in dungeon like chambers. They were allegedly subjected to tortures that included sleep deprivation, waterboarding, foot contorting to cause continuous pain, having the back of their heads smashed against concrete walls, and being held in a tiny boxes for hours.
