Saturday doubles: George Takei and #AskAMuslim

Star Trek icon George Takei knows what it’s like to have your constitutional rights and protections denied. Along with 120,000 other Japanese-Americans, he was imprisoned during World War II.

Because of that experience, Takei has been outspoken in his defense of Muslims in America. His Care2 petition declaring support and opposition to fear-driven policies is now close to goal — he just needs another 2,000 Americans to stand up for their neighbors.

Speaking of those neighbors, Vox followed up with the pair behind #AskAMuslim. I think their story will surprise and charm you.
