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?

I didn’t learn about it until my junior year of high school. Even then it was a blip. I learned more about the Japanese internment camps from an episode of Cold Case, and that storyline A, was fictional, and B, was more about a murder that just happened to take place in a Japanese internment camp than it was about the actual camps. They swept it under the rug where I come from (a VERY white, German-American area with some black and Hispanic people but VERY few Asians).

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.

"Did people really not know this happened?" I literally did not learn about this in school until my junior year of high school, and even then it was a blip. I learned more about Japanese internment camps from a (fictional) episode of Cold Case. They completely sweep this under the rug, along with the maltreatment of the Native Americans.

I think it’s totally unfair that, when it comes to racial inequality, black and Hispanic people have the loudest voices, so to speak, on the subject, at the detriment of other groups.

When you go to a haunted house, it may seem like you’re being funny by trying to scare the actors or jump out at them when you go through a second time, but guess what? ITS NOT FUNNY.

You pay us to scare you. It is your choice to go, so don’t fucking go through if you’re going to ignore the rules and get too close to the actors as a ‘joke’.

These bruises happened because over the course of 4 hours, several people ignored the instructions that CLEARLY stated that they were to wait in the front room until told otherwise. Rather than listen, they ran into the next room and slammed into me- effectively throwing me into the wall. This didn’t only happen once. It happened ten times at LEAST.

Then we had this asshole who thought that once I ‘died’ for the haunt, he could pretend to kick me to see if I’d moved. I, being used to people abusing me- jumped back and slammed my head into the concrete wall.

YOU ARE NOT FUNNY BY BEING RUDE AT A HAUNTED HOUSE. WE ARE PAID ACTORS THAT YOU CHOOSE TO COME AND SEE PERFORM. YOU PAY US TO SCARE THE SHIT OUT OF YOU, SO DONT HIT US WHEN WE DO

I feel that this is relevant considering it is October and more Haunted Houses are opening up. I know it seems funny to scare the ‘monsters’ but all you do is hurt real people. So stop.

It’s not even October but I’m still spreading this

SIGNAL BOOOOOOOOSSSSSTTTTT!!!!!!! Now

Anonymous asked: When it comes to representation, it is definitely hella important but if you turn out at the movies with shitty representation and badly-done minority characters then that sends the message that people are okay with that crap, you gotta hold out for movies to step up their game.

I want more Mexican characters in TV/film not as the help, the field worker or the gangster. Yes that is a reality but WE ARE MORE THAN THAT. we’re not all undocumented immigrants. We don’t all work in hotels or the kitchens. AND SO WHAT IF WE DO. that does not make us lower than you. We come here for a better life, not to be shit on because you think we are less than you. I want Mexicans of all different skin colors on TV/film because we are not all one nice shade of brown.
