Japan Tsunami and Pearl Harbor References

Posted by mikenopolis on March 16, 2011

In the past few years, the world has had a few natural disasters in places such as Chili, New Zealand and most recently Japan’s 8.9/9.0 earthquake and the devastating tsunami that followed. It was nice to see so many nations offer them a helping hand.

A friend of mine tweeted a LINK from Buzzfeed which showed a print screen of some people (majority Caucasian, most likely Americans with the exception of one Asian looking kid) making remarks on Facebook that the Japanese disaster was karma and that it was payback for the Pearl Harbor bombing. From the looks of these ignorant individuals’ profile pictures, none of them were alive and directly affected by that incident. If this was at a time of war, I would understand these hurtful and unjustifiable comments.

If you were looking for payback, don’t you remember Hiroshima? If I had to guess these people are racist, there’s no way a non-racist person would make those kinds of comment. I’m not saying that all white people are racist, I’m just saying ignorant people need to stop putting their faces out there.

For the sake of argument, apples to apples so to speak. I don’t have the exact numbers, but Pearl Harbor took around 2,000 lives, mostly military, Hiroshima/Nagasaki killed 80,000 right off the bat, majority civilians, then 420,000 were fatally affected by the radiation (also civilians). If you put all the numbers together, out of the approximate 502,000 people that died, 99.6% were caused by the US. and 0.4% were caused by the Japanese. In other words, Japan would have to bomb Pearl Harbor 249 more  times to kill as much people as the US did. I’m first and foremost an American, so I’m not saying Japan was right in what they did, I’m also not saying the Americans were wrong because I support anyone who believes in defending our county . But it was a time of war and we should let it go already. It’s 2011! When will there be peace?!!??

Here are the comments just a few of them made, so sad that their names were censored out. DAMN Racists! I’m going to make a wild guess here. They only buy American, Drive American and Eat American huh? Racist F#&@s. People are people, we SHOULD be judged by our actions and reactions and not by our race, age, color, sexual preferences or sex.

Just look at these CONFIRMED ignorant fools!
