Racism against Filipinos in Singapore, part 1

At a Singaporean website (Temasek Times/Review) last year the next picture was posted with the next headline:

PHOTO: Is this Singapore’s Orchard Road or Manila’s Makati City?

Immediately you could read the insults in the comments. Comments such as ‘look what your maid is doing‘ or ‘FT’s imported just for men!‘. And of course, the posters are CHINESE-SINGAPOREAN!!!

What the fuck! I can also take a picture of a few Chinese girls and asking myself or we in CHINA or in SINGAPORE!!! Go to circular road or chinatown and you hundreds of them! And a lot of them are wearing shorter skirts and more naked dressed than these 8 girls. Maybe are these girls all professionals who are just dressed up and enjoying themselves at Orchard Road. That is the Filipino culture and that’s what they love to do. I can’t see on the picture or they are hookers or maids, maybe is one of them a lawyer, doctor or a pilot. Don’t judge about people who you don’t know!

News for this poster, you already did! You forefathers came from China to Southeast-Asia and most of their descendants still living by their traditions, culture and standards. The rest of Southeast Asia has simply just to accept it. Many many aunties and uncles, and even young people, are unable to speak proper English or any other local language. Southeast Asia is from origin a Malayan culture and NOT the Chinese culture!!!

To publish that photo with a headline like that and these comments is RACISM!!! Purposely published trying to stir up resentment against foreigners! 

These girls are residents of Singapore and also have the right to be treated on a respectful way as we all demand. Chinese-Singaporeans are allowed to be themselves in this country, so why not the Pinoy? I found it very sad that the Singaporean government have not take serious action against this form of discrimination. We, the 37% foreigners in this country have also RIGHTS to have a peaceful life in this country and to be respected despite our race or skin color!!!

This is again a typical case where one immigrant judges about the other immigrant. The first immigrant think he or she is allow to do so because they came with millions to this country, put their culture on us and discriminate now everyone else. Don’t demand from other immigrants something what you don’t do by yourself. Get so sick of it!

We, the citizens of Singapore,pledge ourselves as one united people,regardless of race, language or religion,to build a democratic society based on justice and equality so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and progress for our nation.

Let’s all respect that pledge and respect each other on who they are and not because they are different then you…
