Hey +George Takei​ if this is really you let me start by saying sorry for putting this on your post.it has nothing to do with your post but I don't know how to contact you. I was hoping you could help me understand something because it directly affected you. You were in imprisoned in what is commonly known as a Japanese concentration camp.i feel this is a misnomer. from the admittedly little I know about history. I believe Japanese people during World War II had the option to go back Japan. So what I believe is the people that were locked up in the "Japanese" camps we're either naturalized American citizens or american-born American citizens. If this is true would that not make those camps American concentration camps. isn't it true that Americans were locked up. In my mind that's an even worse crime to lock up fellow Americans just because they looked different. Because that really would have been the only difference between them and every other American. it should be a warning to all of us that if it goes wrong any group of Americans can be locked up. For what amounts to no reason at all

George Takei will be at Google with his new Broadway show Allegiance (http://www.allegiancemusical.com/show). Allegiance is an epic story of love, war and heroism set during the Japanese American internment of World War II,  following the story of the Kimura family in the weeks and years following Pearl Harbor, as they are relocated from their farm in Salinas, California to the Heart Mountain internment camp in the rural plains of Wyoming.

Also performing at the event will be Telly Leung (Broadway and Glee), Melinda Doolittle (of American Idol), Lindsay Mendez (Best known for playing Elphaba in Broadway's Wicked), Anna Maria Perez de Tagle (from the Disney Channel and Godspell on Broadway), and Marc De la Cruz (Broadway's IF/THEN). 

The event will be moderated by Julie James. 

The cast album will be available for free via Google Play the day of the event (http://goo.gl/jSL7gN).

Those of Japanese decent was not the only non-white group so encamped, the Aleuts of Alaska, was evacuated from their homes when the Japanese from Japan invaded (sort of face saving after Midway and also to see if Doolittle base was in Alaska). They was evacuated to SE Alaska and put up at an old cannery that was drafty and unsanitary, while German POWs was put up down the road. Many Aleuts, even those who served with dignity to train the US Army 7th ID that had been slated for North Africa but went to the other extreme of the planet, The Aleutians.. Were not allowed to go home until much after the wars end, and when they did they found some of it had been ransacked and with possible radiation from the nuclear weapons tests near by.

Story
Tagline
Some know me as Mr. Sulu but I hope all know me as a believer in, and a fighter for, the equality and dignity of all human beings.
Introduction
Many of you know me best for my portrayal of Mr. Sulu in the groundbreaking television and film series Star Trek. I've also been in 40+ feature films and what must be hundreds of television guest-starring appearances.

More recently, I'm a regular guest on The Howard Stern Show on Sirius XM Radio. I also starred in the NBC television series "Heroes" and in the movie "Larry Crowne" opposite Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. Currently I play "Hologramps" in Nickelodeon's "Supah Ninjas," recently appeared as a guest on Celebrity Apprentice in 2012, and am planning a solo comedy night premiering later this year.

This September, I will star in a new American musical entitled "Allegiance" (music and lyrics by Jay Kuo, book by Jay Kuo and Lorenzo Thione), which opens at San Diego's Old Globe Theater before moving to Broadway in 2013.
Bragging rights
I'm married to one of Earth's most wonderful men, Brad..
