The Briton and his victim, who is the racist?

When news of the Briton being bashed by his victim for racist slurs, I read some comments that the Briton is not racist because he married a local girl. Is that good enough a factor to clear him of the racist tag? Maybe indeed he is not a racist. Maybe he did not even know that he is a racist. Maybe racism is just part of him and is unrecognisable.

The fact is that this young Briton carried with him hundreds of years of European history and racism. These have probably be in his blood, in his history lessons in schools. How else would a young Briton told a Chink, anyway, to all westerns, Sinkies look no different than another Chinaman, the racist joke of being laundryman and asking him to go back to his laundry shop in China?

This racist discrimination of Chinaman and condemning them into lowly trade like cooks and laundry men, was enshrined in the American Constitution in the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Other than tagging the native Red Indians as savages and good for the slaughter, and the enslavement of African human beast of burden, the Exclusion Act is the third most hideous crime against humanity committed by the Americans. Thank God Sinkie Chinks are not Chinaman and can laugh at this Act or simply ignored it as nothing to do with us. I take exceptions to this kind of denial.

Back to the Sinkie Chink that was taunted by the Briton. A commentator posted that the Briton was not racist because of his Chinese wife and it was his victim that played the racist card. So insulting him with the laundry tag on his expensive designer shirt was not racist. Calling him a laundry man was also not racist. Telling him to go back to his laundry shop in China was not racist. Now where did this Briton hide this part of Chinaman/laundryman in his memory for instant recall, to be used against Chinaman?

What did the victim did that was racist? For beating up the Briton for passing all the friendly and innocent laundry man remarks? Maybe the Sinkie Chink could not appreciate Brit humour, or got no sense of humour. Since the end of colonialism, not many former subjects of the Empire would want to appreciate deprecating racist humour from their colonial masters anymore.

How could someone called a Sinkie Chink racist when he spoke and dressed and behaved like a westerner and enjoying every bit of it in a western establishment, a pub. And if you read him carefully, he even called himself Alexander Lincoln despite his parents giving him a Chinese name. Or maybe the Alexander Lincoln was given to him by his parents too. Would this fact be enough to say that Alexander Lincoln is not racist, or at least his parents too were not racist as his name speaks of their aspiration to be more like angmoh?

In my view, if the Briton, Richard Jonathan Mills, would to invite him to his table, Alexander Lincoln could be so grateful for such an act that he would probably buy the Briton a drink to drink to that. The Brit was too full of himself and to me, deserved to be beaten by the Sinkie Chink for not knowing that his racist slur was no longer acceptable even to Sinkie Chinks who would not associate themselves with the term China man. It was double insult really. Sinkie Chinks despised China man and would not want to have anything to do with them. They might even agree and approve the Chinese Exclusion Act as something necessary and the right thing to do.

chinese S'porean women just love 'ang mo'/western men - the chinese s'porean women can then "raise" their social status in the eyes of other chinese s'poreans. if not, how do you think the SPG name came about ?

No one is immune from being offended, or personally verbally slurred.

Wake up. Grow the fuck up. Just because someone called you a few nasty names doesn't make what they say "true" about you.

If you don't take responsibility for the emotions you yourself create, then you are likely to be the one who will ultimately suffer the most, and you will deserve your own self sabotage.

What Elenor Roosevelt said is true:
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

You can argue until you are blue the the Ang Mo is a racist. So what? He is not breaking any laws. He has every right to be where he is and to express his feelings with brutal humour. If you are the unfortunate target, you ought to man up and deal with it like a mature adult.

Or you can do something stupid and reactionary, and let the police and courts decide the consequence for your dangerous lack of emotional intelligence, social skills and self control.

Got maturity?

This is a true story.

An African tourist was sitting in a bar in Sydney nursing his drink when in walked a white Aussie.
He sat beside the African at the bar and said, "What are you doing here, you black bastard?"
The African being a seasoned traveller, replied "I'm waiting for your wife. I have a date with her."
The Aussie said, "My wife is always late. Let me buy you a drink."

Stop being an anal prick, redbean. Get a life, mate.

Sinkies have lost it. When foreigners think that Sinkies are fair game for racist slurs, as punching bags, in Sinkie land, what do you think?

The Brit didn't say those things. That's the point. There's no denying that those comments are racist, but he did not mention them. The assault was unprovoked and there were witnesses who testified to the police that no racist taunts were used.

In pleading guilty, Chew was able to level these allegations without needing to verify them.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Readers of the main media would come out with phrases of laundry tag and go back to his China laundry shop. Unless these are all fabrications. The media did not give that impression and reported them.

The less we say about the mainstream media, the better. Agenda-pushing and irrespnsible reporting the point of sensationalising real issues involving real people is nothing new here. The Chinese owning laundry is an American sterotype, not an English one.

If the Brit despised chinks as he evidently did with his racist remarks, then why did he marry a chink woman? Wasn't he in effect spitting at himself?

I think you've answered your own question about what really must have happened...doesn't add up does it?

You are right IF the Brit did actually make the alleged racist remarks. The operative word is IF.
So, the logical thing for Chew was to have put this question to him. If he persisted with his remarks, then Chew would have been in a strong position to say that what the Brit said was senseless except that it was tantamount to swallowing his own spit, right?

Some years back my family were on holiday in South Africa with about twenty other Singaporean Chinese. One night we attended a South African cultural dance. The Singaporean Chinese were invited by the native dancers to take part in the dance which some of us did as a matter of courtesy. At this juncture a number of white men at another table were heard to pass some slurs and disparaging remarks on the Singapore Chinese. My son who was with us was very angry about their uncivilise manners. He went over to their table and asked them if they knew what is guano? Surprisingly they said they did not know what is guano. Then my son told them that guano is bird shit and that was what they were and advised them to be more civilised and have manners.

They even dared to complain the matter to the manager of the hotel who after some investigation told them off that they started the trouble and shouldn't be complaining about the slur cast by the Singaporean tourists. Incidentally the manager was a local well educated native South African . He was appreciative of the Singaporean Chinese tourists sportmanship and friendly reprocity in taking part in the cultural dance.

The native African hotel manager couldn't be bothered to show any deference to these haughty uncultured white men. This is something many Asians especially the Western or English educated Chinese Singaporeans need to learn and know what is dignity and self respect.

Not every Chinese Sporean has the opportunity and courage to get married to the angmoh.You dun know what is true love.

One should not be jealous if one cannot find a angmo partner.I am one who feel proud to see local getting married to one.So long as one do not despise his own countrymen and remember their root after getting married,we should wish them well.

What's the point of marrying someone of the same race but call ourselves Dony Jeorge Lee and being so sensitive to remark about being call chink or laundry man.One must grow up and learn to control our temper.
I do not rule out the possibility of getting an angmo to help me to produce babies.Remember ,not everyone has a chance.Please dun be jealous lah.

Just a head's up and a reminder to your ethno-centric delusions:

There is NO SUCH THING as "race"

OK/ Got it? Apparently not. The illusion of "race" is one of the most powerful delusions of the human mind. It is so powerful that it has been a basis for bigotry and the making of legislation, the promotion of religious-based hatred (Jews vs Arabs for e.g.) and all sorts of insecurities.

People, please...go with the science, the objectivity, the empirical evidence.

There is only ONE RACE: THE HUAN RACE, and we all came from AFRICA

So what if this hooligan Brit poompy is married to a SPG? It does not mean anything at all. He is still a hooligan and a racist ares-hole Brit.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Matilah and his academic friends will believe that there is only one human race. Just enjoy your toddy trip. Who else believes in this?

Might as well say we are all apes or monkeys as the difference in chromosome count is less than a handful.

Anonymous said...

Matilah defines himself according to science. But, he is not a creation of science.

Matilah_Singapura said...

redben, it is clear that most people don't "believe" that race is an illusion. That's obvious.

Objectivity? Ppppffft. Most people, including you dear redbean would know "objectivity" if it took a shit on your shoes. You'd still believe your delusions, and make decisions based on those "Type 1 Errors".

Good luck to you ;-)

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Who is talking about objectivity? It is about reality. It is also about a belief. And this belief is no delusion or illusion.

Matilah_Singapura said...

You fail to distinguish between "Belief" and "Knowing". When you KNOW something, it i backed up by EVIDENCE. When you BELIEVE something, the role of evidence is optional.

e.g. I KNOW I can tie my shoes. (easily proven)

Many people BELIEVE humankind is divided in races. (no evidence, evidence optional)

Consider taking some remedial classes in thinking ;-)

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Your kind of argument is good for academics who are paid to do just that. Okay human being is defined as one with 23 pairs of chromosomes. So all the various races have 23 pairs, they are all human race. Can't argue with that.

Everything that lives and breathes is a living thing. Animals, insects, birds, fish, humans are all living things. Correct. Perfect.

You can't see any difference between a mongoloid, caucasian, polynesian, afrikans, they all look the same to you? Got evidence?

The mongoloids were from Africa? Caucasians from Africa? Oh they have done projections and historical studies. By now some Nigerians, Ghanians, Egyptians etc in African should have looked like Chinese or German because of evolution through time.

Maybe not because the weather and food and conditions were not make them evolved to mongoloids or caucasians.

Why can't the various human race emerge from different corners of the earth? Ask the chicken or ask the egg?

Matilah_Singapura said...

redbean talking fucking cock with his lame-ass arguments, grasping at straws:

> You can't see any difference between a mongoloid, caucasian, polynesian, afrikans, they all look the same to you? <

Dumbass. Stop 5 people on the street at random. Unless 2 of them are identical twins ALL FIVE will LOOK DIFFERENT -- even those with the same skin colour, hair colour, physical/ facial features.

>> Why can't the various human race emerge from different corners of the earth?

There is no reason why, but the FACT is it didn't happen that way. We (our species) originated from AFRICA.

Go back and learn some fucking science lah before shooting your error-prone mouth off!

Don't worry I read all the historical arguments and justifications about the migration of the human specie from Africa to Asia and Europe. How conclusive are they?

If all the tribes migrated from Africa, it must be such that all the different tribes except the Afrikaan tribes remain. Why are there no traces of the existence of mongoloids and caucasians in Africa? How did the Africans migrated to far off little islands in the Pacifics? They were there before the great white gods could master shipbuildings to sail to these islands. Oh, the whole continent were joined together as one, and when it broke up, the human specie already spreaded world wide, including the Americas.

The fact is that there are plenty of gaps and guesstimations.

Genetically I do not believe the mongoloids and caucasians evolved from Afrikaans. This is another theory that evolution could not prove like chicken evolved from fish, or humans also from fish.

Ah, coming back to the theory of God created them from the beginning like the chicken and the ducks. I am amazed that you think your views are so conclusive.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Don't just read lah. Go the museum see and if you can feel the bones, look at the fossils. Go talk with anthropologists and biologists, visit their universities.

Science is not a passive enterprise. If you are really serious, get as best direct experience you can. Otherwise you are just another armchair wannabe watching "Discovery Channel" or "BBC Horizons" (which are excellent, anyway).

Sure, there are "gaps" in the theory. But there are also many lines of POSITIVE EVIDENCE. All science, goes with the POSITIVE evidence.

Scientific "gaps" (unknowns) are numerous. Take simple example:

Why does an object (or light -- a photon) travel in a straight line if it is undisturbed by a force? (No one knows)

The fact is that forward motion in a straight line (unless disturbed) is a fact of nature. But no one can explain WHY. It just IS.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Have you looked in a mirror? Of course you have. Everyone has.

How come in a mirror, the image is reversed left and right, but not up and down?

(Note; A lot of smart scientists, even physicists get the wrong answer on this one)

Don't think just because you read science, you know what it is and assume you have the mental tools to argue against the science.

Chances are, you don't.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

You should compare exact science like photons, strings, particles etc from evolutionary science.

I bet you that 2m years down, the Afrikaans and mongoloids that have migrated to Europe today would still look like they are now, with minor changes, but would not look like the caucasians.

The temperate zone of Asian countries are no different from the temperate zones of Europe or America. But the human species did not look the same or evolve to look similar in features.

This is proof that they may have the same number of chromosome but not from the same origin.

Matilah_Singapura said...

The existence of strings has not been proven.

Don't mix up apples and durians. You'll end up confusing yourself more.

Don't make predictions 2 m years in the future. There is no way to prove what you predict anyway.

Climate ad temperatures vary all over the place. So what?

> This is proof that they may have the same number of chromosome but not from the same origin. <

You had better go back and read Darwin again. You don't understand what "natural selection" means.

When there is science, there will be fiction and imagination.
If evolution exists, man(kind) needs no plane to fly nor car to drive. Man must have wanted to fly by himself a 100 million years ago.
