Over the weekend, a friend pointed out to me that there wasn’t as much support for Japan as I had initially thought. My friends on Facebook all poured out their support for the people affected by the earthquake. However, not the rest of the country felt that way.
Through a search of the term “Pearl Harbor” on American Facebook status updates after the earthquake struck, we found out that there are a lot of ignorant, racist folks out there. These people think that Japan deserved what they got because of “karma” for Pearl Harbor.
I can’t even go into detail how terrible that idea is. Both incidents have nothing to do with each other. And more importantly, whenever people die, it’s never something to be celebrated.
Here’s a look at some of those status updates (click image to enlarge):
I think right now not only should our prayers go out to the victims of the quake, but also the ignorant people out there. I would have never imagined that people felt this way. It really is pretty shocking at how dumb a lot of Americans are.
Let’s continue to pray for the victims and these morons here in the States. I just hope that we can eliminate such negativity around the world. We need to continue to stay strong and continue to believe that God will help us get through all this.
