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).

It’s something we Americans forget. They try saving the world from those who oppress but don’t dare talk about how we rounded up the Native Americans bc they wanted their land, the Japanese bc of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the African Americans in Detroit bc of race riots. We the people huh? More like we the whites. Take it how you may, I’m not perfect and don’t claim to be. There no but here. They say what was said before but is usually bullshit so I won’t use it. I’ll just say WE, yes WE have a flawed system that needs to be resolved.
