‘I hate stupid AngMo in our country’

January 19, 2013

Yesterday I found this post and made me really pissed. It proofs that the racial discrimination against other races in Singapore is not something new since the last general elections but has been always there. On 19 June 2008, an local posted this message on a popular forum in Singapore, sgforums.com

I have enough! Enough of those nitwits, good-for-nothing, arrogant S*O*Bitches that our government import in droves…

These idiots come here thinking they own the country and that Singapore/Asian are rural fools that should do their every bidding. Numbskulls, retard, nincompoops!!

Why do we have so many of them in Singapore??

Yesterday, I was turning into an alley when this dickhead started waving angrily at me.. apparently, he was walking his toddler and he thinks I’m turning too wide that I might hit his child. I was in my lane and that bonehead should have stayed on the pavement!

Today, this dimwit was driving against the traffic and he f***king unbelievably wanted me to backup so he can move forward.

Why?Why? Everyday I come across so call FTs who isn’t worth a quarter of what they’re paid; taking up jobs that Singaporean should have no problem doing (infact, many of these idiots depend on Singaporean subordinates to given them advice!)

WTF has our government done to our country?!?!!

Let me make first one thing very clear… ”our country” ???? Is he or she serious? Most of the Singaporeans are descendants of Chinese who fled to Singapore after World War 2 and the independence of Singapore in 1965. And I will not be surprised if above’s poster one of his or her parents or grandparents are immigrants from Malaysia or China. We all know that a lot of the Singaporeans, especially above 25 years of age, are first or second generation immigrants!!

Anyone who can not accept that Singapore get more colorful with mixed races, should take immediately the first airplane out of Singapore and return to the country of his or hers forefathers. They also came one day as immigrants to this country to find a better life or a new future. Same as the current wave of immigrants but now they are suddenly considered as trash! Think many Singaporeans forefathers will turn in their graves around if they know that their descendants are discriminating immigrants and thus indirect against their own forefathers!

This poster comment is racial based and very dangerous. He or she wants  the white people out of Singapore and keep this tiny island reserved only for his or hers race. You know how we call that? RACIAL CLEANSING!!! But if all the white people have to leave this country, let we then also move our wealth out of this country and our companies. Let see or this tiny island still can survive without us… I don’t think so!!! Let we then also kick all the Singaporeans in the UK, Australia and Canada back to Singapore (and the rest of the world!), because then the knife have to cut on both sides. You don’t want us, then we don’t want you too in our countries!!!

Ang Moh

January 17, 2013

When you live in Singapore as an European, you will get one of these days called by the locals ‘Ang Moh‘. Ang moh is a racial epithet describing White people. It literally means “red-haired” and originates from Hokkien (Min Nan). Other similar terms include ang mo kow (red-haired monkeys), ang mo gui (red-haired devil), ang mo lang (red-haired people). The usage is similar as in the Cantonese term gweilo, which means ‘devil person‘.

I am strongly against the use of that epithet. It is disgraceful, derogatory and disrespectful to call someone based on his or her race. That is pure racism! That I am a white person will not say that I like to be called a White. Call for example an African-American the famous n-word or simply ‘black’ and you have immediately a fist in your face. Likewise with aboriginals being called black or Asians in Australia called ‘Yellow People’. Why we as the European race, have to accept that we are called on daily base ‘red hair devils‘ by the Chinese population in this country?  We also don’t call the local Chinese people ‘ching-dong’, ‘rice-dick’, ‘zipper-head’, ‘Gook’, ‘Chinky’, ‘flat-faces’ or ‘yellow-slanted-eyes’.

So although it is socially acceptable to call Caucasians ‘ang moh’ here in Singapore – it would be nice if everybody thought of the double standard.. especially the fact that they use it on television and radio! Imagine using the term ‘yellows’ or ‘blacks’ on television or radio in the USA, Australia or Europe – you have immediately an uproar!!!

Racism, also called racialism,  any action, practice, or belief that reflects the racial worldview—the ideology that humans are divided into separate and exclusive biological entities called “races,” that there is a causal link between inherited physical traits and traits of personality, intellect, morality, and other cultural behavioral features, and that some races are innately superior to others [1].

Calling any European person ‘Ang Moh’ is based on racism according above statement. Especially when you know that Ang Moh is coming from Ang Moh Gui, which means ‘red hair devil‘. In that context means red hair not because some Europeans have red hair but because devils have red hair!

[M]any of my Singaporean friends felt the term ‘ang moh’ was definitely racist. Said one, with surprising finality: ‘The original term was “ang moh gui” which means “red hair devil” in Hokkien. That’s definitely racist.’ However, the ‘gui’ bit has long been dropped from the term, defanging it considerably. … Both ‘ang moh gui’ and ‘gwailo’ – Cantonese for ‘devil person’ – originated from the initial Chinese suspicion of foreigners way back in those days when the country saw itself as the Middle Kingdom.”; – Ong Soh Chin, Straits Times Life! Section (30 October 2004)

“Stop calling me ang moh As an ‘ang moh’ who has lived here for over six years, I hope more people will realise just how offensive the term is.” – Sean Ashley, Straits Times Life! Section (5 November 2004)

The term also appears, for instance, in Singaporean newspapers such as The Straits Times. Why is a English volunteer in the sample below called for red hair devil in the newspapers and not simply Caucasian? They do it with the other races and why not with the Caucasians? This proofs to me that the state controlled Straits Times has double standards regarding races!

Michael D. Sargent (21 October 2007), “Lessons for this gweilo and ang moh”The Straits Times;

Jamie Ee Wen Wei (11 November 2007), “Meet Bukit Panjang’s ‘ang moh leader’: Englishman is one of 900 permanent residents who volunteer at grassroots groups, and the number could rise with more foreigners becoming PRs”, The Straits Times.

The term ‘ang moh’ is already a classification by race first, and individual identity of the person later. Therefore it can be seen always as a racial statement against the Caucasians.

The Singaporean Government should immediately forbidto use any longer the term ‘Ang Moh’ and teach to use the proper word. If you are as government serious about racial harmony, you don’t accept that any racial group in Singapore gets discriminated.
