So there's this thing called systemic racism.
It tends to manifest in the media
There was looting, and violence in Japan, it wasn't reported on.
There were people banding together in New Orleans, it wasn't reported on.
What you know, is only what the media spins on it.

The japanese still have the good sense to hide the ugly parts whereas in america we glorify the sad and ignorant acts of the few and pass it off as the acts of the many.

Hide yo wife,
Hide yo kids,
We be lootin and rioting everywhere out here.

" ****** gonna nig?" I'm sorry, that's just "Americans gonna 'murica". In Time magazine, on two facing pages, there were two pictures of people. On the left, a white man and woman leaving a Radio Shack "loading up provisions". On the right page, a black man leaving a grocery store with "looted food". So yeah.

Americans gonna 'murica.
#331 to #329 - mrclass (09/22/2012) [-]
Oh please shut the **** up. The violence, drugs, and law breaking was already in the ghettos, when katrina struck it simply compounded an awful situation. That isn't anything specific to "'murica" Now, I am completely ok with satirical remarks directed to any country, but your comment was simply stupidity embodied.
#335 to #331 - scootermcg (09/22/2012) [-]
I never denied that there wasn't already violence drugs and law-breaking..but it wasn't just in the ghettos. And white people were looting just as much as black people were. I would know. I was there for it. And yes, as Americans, we do have a tendency to be less community-minded than other countries. Because, for some unknown reason, we seem to have a mentality that helping other people means that you're socialist.

Besides, my point in saying "Americans gonna 'murica" was that the image was comparing the Japanese disaster relief effort to the American one, so singling out black people from within our disaster situation is an inaccurate comparison. So before you go about accusing other people of stupidity, check your own logic.
#338 to #335 - mrclass (09/22/2012) [-]
Ahh my good sir, an excellent rebuttal, if I might offer one of my own along the lines of that whilst America might as a whole be less empathetic with others in our community I don't believe that we are so entrenched in a anti socialist "Red Scare" that population is less community minded than other countries to a large degree, yet one thing that I must point out is that were these two extremes within the context of extreme situations and in communities not rife with violence the American response would have been similar to the Japanese one
#344 to #338 - scootermcg (09/22/2012) [-]
And I can honestly agree with you on that. Had this happened in a community not already suffering from a great deal of criminal activity, the American response may have been greater. I had intended my "Americans/ 'murica" comment to simply reflect the statement of Japan as I felt the specific mention of black people was inaccurate, not to imply that all areas of America would have been this way. I can easily see where this would have been the interpretation. So please..allow me the opportunity to offer a few other possible captions:

Scumbags gonna scum
Hooligans gonna...hool? (I dunno. you tell me)
Robbers gonna rob
Retards gonna tard??

alright, I don't really have any good ones. But yeah, if I could choose a good one that was more accurate, I would do so.

That's different, hockey's sacred. Plus there was no rape or anything too destructive. As far as riots go it was pretty chill, but that's Canada for you.

Just another interesting tibit...the Yakuza gang helped in the recovery, food, medicine, clearing wreckage. It was a faith in humanity moment.
#167 to #162 - anon (09/22/2012) [-]
They did that for a good reason, now the Yakuza owns a lot of this "help "

Japan is a strange place , even the Yakuza helped out when the earthquake happened.They sent trucks filled with supplies.

Well I live in Houston, and I can give some perspective as I was staying in the Toledo area during this time.

The crime rate went up beyond all reason due to panic, and I personally saw people stealing other peoples gas. They did tend to be black, but then again that is the largest population of New Orleans so I am unsure as to other races.

After the storm I went home, and it so happened many people from Louisiana were staying with us on a "temporary" basis.

They are still here and our rape/theft levels went up dramatically, as these people had little to lose and much to gain. The mercenaries did a good job helping to keep the looters and in general cracked out people away from potential victims.
To this day our crime is worse than it was.

In Japan people did seem to work together much more, and I saw a lot of love in the rescues. As for the looters and crime, I know nothing. Just giving my perspective.

I probably has do more with that fact that Japan is a collectivist culture, and America is and individualistic culture.
