Ecorazzi: @georgetakei Delivers Message of Tolerance

posted by Randall

George TakeiActor George Takei has made it his mission to fight intolerance where ever he finds it.

The social media king and the original Sulu in the TV series Star Trek looks inward at his own experience whenever he sees injustice, reports Ecorama.

His recent posting on Facebook received a phenomenal 315,000 likes.

“Once upon a time I was called a ‘Jap’ and put into a prison for four years with my entire family, for no reason other than who we were and who we looked like. It is my life’s mission to fight against the dark forces of fear and intolerance that could ever lead again to such an injustice.”

You can read Takei’s entire message and see he connects his experience as a Japanese American to being part of the LGBT community on his Facebook page.
