Banana (ethnic slur) is a term that denotes a betrayal of race or culture by implying that, like a banana, a person is yellow (Asian) on the outside but white on the inside.

Banana in Days of InfamyEdit

The derogatory term Banana was used by Corporal Aiso when warning Corporal Takeo Shimizu and his men to never trust the Hawaiian locals, especially the local Japanese, calling the latter Bananas. Shimizu was confused and later acknowledge the definition of the term from Aiso, citing that the Japanese may look like them, but they think like Americans. Shimizu was amused by the seemingly funny term and wondered who had come up with the word.[1]

The warning came in response to the news of a Japanese soldier being assaulted and his rifle having being stolen by an unknown assailant.
