So, today, Japan’s women’s team beat Sweden to go to the final of the Women’s World Cup of 2011. They will face the favorites, USA. I’m a Japanese American, and friends asked me who I will root for. Then a friend sends me an email which includes his comment plus a bunch of Twitter feeds by racist Americans:

If the USA plays Japan in the World Cup Final, would it be bad form for US fans to do “the wave”? #politicallyincorrectfanbehavior

So we meet again Japan… Communist vs USA in the finals. #WWII
Dear Japan, thanks for world war II..now we’ll take our reparations in the form of a gold medal. Sincerely, AMERICA!
The same shit happened during the tsunami. And that is why I will always root for the other team. This country is filled with idiots like these who will openly write these racist comments without realizing just how bad it is. People from other countries show more class and humility when it comes to international relations. But, many Americans are raised to be selfish, ignorant, intolerant, and it’s embarrassing to see. I think these rednecks mistaken patriotism with racism; they are caught up in an unhealthy love and hate duality in their poorly developed brains.
Why the fuck do these morons insist on rehashing old events they didn’t even experience? Do you people think you’re making your country proud by thinking like this? You’re not impressing anyone, including your ignorant parents.
So anyway, I’m rooting for Japan all the way. They are playing great, and this would be uplifting for the country after the tsunami disaster on 3/11.
