White, Yellow, Brown, Black, Red People

We are all humans, and our skin colours and/or tones differ from one another, but this does not give people with white skin the permission to be superior to those who are of a different coloured skin. And that is exactly what I’m going to rant about today. I am an Asian, and I have yellow brownish skin. I am proud to be of Asian descent and nothing can change that fact. I can bleach my skin and hair, but I’m still Asian. Something happened this afternoon when I was out for lunch and it pissed me off so bad. This is the second time it has happened to me, and I feel so angry that such people exist. I do not intend to offend anyone with this post, but I just need to pour my thoughts into this entry and get it out of my system.

Allow me to recap what exactly happened. I work in the Central Business District (CBD) area where most people work in investment firms and banks etc. I was out for lunch and yes, it can get pretty crowded during the lunch hour. However, while I was walking to the traffic junction to cross the road, I met this Western “angmoh” fella. He’s probably in his late forties or early fifties, a little on the plump side and balding. Apparently, I must either be too short for him to take notice of me or I was too fat for him to give way. And yes, he saw me as we were walking towards each other. To be honest, I felt really insulted and actually cursed him under my breath. He didn’t give way nor did he budge. He literally walked straight into me without a word of apology. Yes, before you guys start to push the blame on me, I tried to move away to let him pass but no, he just had to continue walking straight into me. Seriously?! What makes him think that he can get away with this shit attitude? Foreign talent? What foreign talent? More like foreign trash! Just because he has white skin, he thinks it allows him to just walk and bump into people without apologising? Why should I make way for him and still get hit? Because I’m an Asian? Oh please. Enough of this crap where Asians are less superior to Westerners. What has our society become?! Gosh, I’m appalled with the stinky attitude of such horrid westerners. I’m not saying all westerners are like that. But for those who think that they are high and mighty with noses permanently stuck high in the air, I think you better do a reality check on yourselves. I’m not gonna give way just because you have white skin. I will give way when I see that you’re making the effort to avoid crashing into me i.e. moving away in the other direction. You have been blessed with a pair of beautiful blue/green/purple/orange/yellow/red/turquoise eyes. Please use them to your advantage. Please don’t make us Asians hate you for life (although some of us already do). Having white skin does not make you any superior than anyone else of a different skin tone.

I do apologise if I’ve offended anyone. No intentions of doing so. Just needed to release my inner anger towards that old hag. If I ever meet you again, I will surely give you the death stare.

Another incident occurred while I was out at Esplanade. I crossed the path of three westerners, and we were walking perpendicular to each other. And since there was quite a fair bit of distance between us, I saw nothing wrong and crossed their path. Only to realise after crossing, that they were pointing their middle fingers and shouting vulgarities and showing signs that they wanted to hit me. Like hellooooo? There was at least 4-5 metres between us when I crossed your path. You need not behave as if you own the road. It’s public space. I can walk however I want to. You do not dictate how I walk. There’s more than enough space for you to walk, and FYI you do not need to resort to pointing your middle finger at me. This goes to show how immature and self-centred you guys are. Bunch of egoistic idiots.

Some people ought to die seriously. Anyway, thanks for letting me rant. Feeling much better now. Once again, apologies to those who are offended by my post. I don’t mean to hold a grudge against westerners (I don’t!) but you guys gotta realise that it’s not about skin colour that sets the standard of superiority. We are all equal. We are all humans after all. Just don’t discriminate and judge people based on the skin colour. And don’t ever think that you deserve better just because you are white.

Many thanks!

    Hello. I found you through 201.

    Why the apology? People behave badly, you say how. If that offends someone, it’s their problem.

    I was carrying a heavy case- large, part filled with books- and felt I had got out of a woman’s way enough, so let it crash into her leg. She was extremely angry. Then again my friend feeling light-headed and unsteady walked into someone, unintentionally.

      Hi Clare. Thanks for your comment. Well, I just wanted people to know that it wasn’t my intentions to offend anyone with my words because I know that at the end of the day, people are bound to get offended no matter what. Just to cover my butt, you know? (:

    I know people can be like that, but even so it’s hard to believe anyone could be such a jerk.

      Hi Ellen, there are nasty people in this world. To be honest, and I hate to admit this but even I myself dislike the way people of the same race and ethnicity as me do crazy stuff. Like, in China, they hold a festival where people actually kill dogs for their meat! I’m Chinese (Singaporean Chinese) and I feel disgusted with that strange culture.
