I may be wrong... but I don't see a bit of racism in the OP

It is true many have stated they would take in Japanese Refugee's
if they sought refuge...
The OP is asking, what those individuals have done in their attempts to help out...

I get what he is saying... so many are willing to "help"
...but when it comes down to it... what are they really doing?

I say quit calling him a racist and give him some breathing room

there are many way to assist or aid the Japanese people and country...donate blood through red cross, open your wallets and donate (like many of us have).. talk to your local officals to get extra advise on how to help.... I dont think its funny in the slightest, to mock or even joke about such a disaster...

there is no room for humor in this.. just do you best to help.... and show the world that HUMANITY is not ignorant to the plight of other humans.


The only thing I'm joking about is a silly person who made a ludicrous thread. This is off-topic, if you wanna be serious go to the other side.

Thanks, if any of them had read my posts in the thread I'm referring to, I'm sure they would understand.

Don't get me wrong guys, i do not support this kind of humor, seing as it is wildly inappropriate.
I am just saying that the whole "adopt a family" thing is probably a failed attempt at being humorous, and not at all disguised racism. I think it is just a case of bad wording, and it dissapoints me that people get hung up on the racism, instead of aknowleding that it is meant as a good act.

Look man, I don't know where you think I'm coming from, but it's wrong. You said exactly how I feel in your previous post::

"and just to think... there s people who think that they can OWN people to apease thier own guilt.... :-( This whol scenario brings such hurt to my heart and soul to think that many lives were lost."

That's the whole point, but this thread isn't about the disaster. It's in the Off-Topic section for a reason.

I've heard enough.
You can keep your thread alive.

Though other moderators make have a different opinion.
If so, i will support their decision.

I think your problem may be cultural misunderstanding.
And again, a slight problem with sarcasm.
I'm pretty good at it, and understand even the most feeble attempts.
But i also care about human beings, and how they are treated.
You are attempting to make comedy from tragedy. Which is not uncommon.
You just need more practice.
Carry on

On the first thread of the original post I offered lodging to people that need it. In no shape or form do I intend to go back on my word. I have a ranch house In SC.USA and I have 2 unfurnished rooms, but they can be furnished at a moments notice. PM me if you have the need. (personal info will be given if responded to.) I own my home, and take care of 1 elderly couple now. I am conversational in Japanese but a little rusty.

Everything included. Lights, food, Water, 24mbps up 2 down Internet, Desktop or laptop PC "more than what is needed but "hey sometimes we need things to take our mind off of things." Willing to get what is needed for family to stay in contact with others. Within 10 Mins of many great schools and one fantastic Private College (constantly top ranking in the US).

I was the guy that went into Information Technology in 98 did ok and Never started a family. I don't feel that need when there are people that need help now.

Also to the ones that doubt the validity of my words "I have a cable tow's length of rope for you."
