Yes... the nail that sticks out is hammered down and all that. I didn't bother voting; it was too broad a question. I'm neither Japanese nor a weebo, and I would guess the only way you could justify this question is by saying Japan is still a rather culturally homogeneous country and you're looking at the results as the way the world in general views Japan's morality. Japan is by no means the innocent little country most weebos think it is, but no country is since they are made up of people, so... although you can justify it the question, it's silly. Of course, the no looting thing seems completely foreign to most US-ians, since we see looting every single time there's a disaster or even a bad verdict (Rodney King trial, for example), so to those without real knowledge of Japan's crimes, it might SEEM more moral, especially to a US-ian. The Japanese are just as crusty with sin as anyone else.

The poll brings up the question of race or nationality ("Japanese") in the question as well as in each possible answer. If it wasn't meant to bring up race/nationality, then leave the term "Japanese" out in the first place, and re-phrase the question/answers. You can't have it both ways, on the one hand bring in race or nationality (by using the term "Japanese"), and then on the other hand say the issue has nothing to do with race or nationality. I am relatively certain the original intent had nothing to do with race, but it pays to be very careful with the wording of these things. (Of course, it is possible that this poll is simply a means of gathering information about how people react in online communities...)

Also, why no forum thread for this poll? A discussion over this topic would be much more lively and interesting than talking about a preference for a reality or fantasy world.

But basically, my opinion of this question is simply, "wtf?".

LOL, you serious? This poll... isn't this all just really subjective? The answers would defintiely differ depending on what values and behaviour each person is basing this "morality" on. Hnnngh, in other words, you can't measure morality on such a generalised scale and with such a limited sample group... the results will only be misguiding and superficial. In any case, it's probably better to establish a certain standpoint from which you'll ask this question from and then find cases/situations and analyse them to support your argument for such a complex question rather than use a poll like this...

As someone else mentioned, good luck using this poll for your paper - there are so many biases to this poll from the people you are sampling to the ambiguity of the's not really good to use to expound on your arguments

Bahaha! What's with this week's poll?! Of course I voted no, because I don't believe any race is 'THE most superior race'- I think each race has inferior and superior qualities... the worst quality I think is thinking that your race is the most superior (*cough* 0.6% of us here *cough*)!

The real benefit to this person's essay is probably coming from the comments being posted here than from the poll itself. The poll is just the conversation starter.

I should clarify a few things.

This poll is not meant for any racist essay. Far from it actually.

The "no" answer is meant to mean "equal."

Why I would ask this question here, a couple of people understood pretty spot on. I actually like the discussion as to why, so... keep at it.

This question is part of a larger topic so don't think this question is the entire basis for my essay. Nor am I trying to validate the usage of this poll as any definite proof for anything.

I'll give you a hundred points for that statement.

There are morally upright people in every society.

You can't use it as evidence, period. It has no actual relevance to anything based in reality other than the opinion of the small segment of MU users that likes to answer polls. Add in the fact that there's nothing in place to stop a person from voting twice, etc, and there's just nothing really here- there's not even really enough information to use as a discussion piece. Independent research is great and all, but you should know how to properly conduct it.

You need to be sent back in time to Asia during WWII and you're being annoying to half the world in Asia who had forefathers suffer/killed under the reign of your so-called superior race.
