However, I'm wondering if the difference in color of skin between the Japanese and the Germans falls short of the explanation why some were rounded up and some werent?

I think it has everything to do with outward appearances. It is pretty tough to say you are not Japanese, but a person of German ancestory could claim he were Swiss or Finnish, etc.

BTW, I was told (by someone of Japanese ancestory that was there at the time,) that there were no mass incarcerations of Japanese people in Hawaii because it would have killed the economy. No more workforce.

Money talks.
