Isaiah Davila's insight:

This website is more simple than the rest, it explains what Executive Order 8802 really meant.  For example this quote explains whats going on "President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 8802, also called the Fair Employment Act, on June 25, 1941. The order prohibited racial discrimination by all federal agencies, unions, and companies engaged in war-related work. It also established the Fair Employment Practices Commission to ensure the order was carried out."
