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 had no clue this happened so this gifset is very very important for awareness.
This is so important. There is so much of American history we are blind too.
it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
My Norwegian other half was literally commenting on this yesterday.
My dad was kinda disappointed in Frozen because he was totally expecting Hans to rip off his gloves in the last part of the movie and have fire powers.
but could you imagine how cool that would be?? Then Elsa and Hans could duel it out with magic
His red hair was apparently what made my dad start thinking that. And Southern Isles, you know, where it’s supposed to be warmer.
your dad should have written frozen
That would have opened it up for the sequel, Thawed.
