George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).

I wonder if George thinks that FDR is a bad president because of this. He should, but I wonder what he thinks.
'That will never happen in America. You're just paranoid.'
Oh yeah? Well it already did.
Do people not really know this happened? I mean, I guess growing up a Japanese American and also growing up in a large Japanese/Hawaiian community, all this is told to us at a young age and some of our family members actually have memories of this, its hard to understand that people don’t know this happened here in the US, esp since this is taught in school… right?
It is, but a large portion of the population downright doesn’t care about history. Plenty of others totally dissociate past events from current events. They simply cannot fathom that things like that happened not so long ago and could very easily happen again.
When you say your a feminist…I hope you really know what that means. It means standing up for women of color.
Standing by black women who must deal with being referred to as welfare queens or ratchet.
Being a feminist is standing beside immigrant women who deal with wage theft, unsafe working conditions, and being referred to as leaving anchor babies in America.
It means standing beside Native American women who face domestic violence and rape at unprecedented rates.
It means standing beside Muslim women who choose to live out their faith and face Islamaphobia, sexism and ignorance constantly.
It means standing beside Asian women who have been misrepresented in the media to be thought of as only submissive and quiet.
Please recognize that feminism impacts the lives of every single one of these groups…but we are all women"
