Using Ichiro as a Crux for Social Commentary

Whilst browsing Twitter last week, I came upon a post from a Mariners fan known as @ichimeterlady. In said post, she included a note written by former Mariners player, Ichiro Suzuki. It can be seen below (click to blow that shizz up, yo.)

Compare this note – written by a Japanese man, remember – to the opinions opined by random American citizens as brought forward by the terrific Twitter account @yourinamerica.

Conclusions?

Ichiro: The Best.

Everyone: Still the Worst.
