George Takei’s Wonderful Valentine’s Day Surprise For Japanese Internment Camp Survivor

Teaming up with the Japanese American National Museum, actor George Takei honored a survivor of one of America’s more disgusting decisions: to force more than 100,000 Japanese-Americans and Japanese natives into internment camps in the 1940s, because, uh, they looked like the enemy.

      George Takei is great; he doesn’t forget where he came from and is an excellent representative both for the LGBT and the Japanese-American communities.
