There is this snobbery here, in this little island, that the bananas are more civilized than the mainland Chinese. And the bananas are born that way. Also, the mainland Chinese would always be uncivilized, unchanging and be like that and inferior to the bananas.
Many bananas are born in the last few decades and did not know that their forefathers were mainland Chinese, came from
. They probably believed
their forefathers were Europeans, came from China Europe, very civilized. They did
not know that when the Europeans came out of Europe, they were mostly
pirates, buccaneers, robbers and savages, out to loot and colonise and kill the
natives of whichever land they landed, and calling the natives savages. This is
akin to the human race calling sharks, whales and man eater animals as wild
animals deserved to be killed. Instead they were the wild beasts, the savages
that were killing these animals in the millions as food on the table, some for
fun, they called it game fishing or hunting.
Even as recent as in the 1950s and 60s, the parents and grandparents of these bananas were just as dirty, rude and uncouth as what they accused the mainland Chinese of today. They spit and shit everywhere and have very ill manners. They could not remember. Their parents and fore parents were either too shameful to tell them or dead and gone. To cut the story short, if they could become more ‘civilised’, cleaner, more hygienic, less rude and crude, why can’t the mainland Chinese? No, the mainland Chinese are different. Their parents are Chinese. The parents of the bananas are not Chinese. Not Chinese, then what? Ang moh or chap cheng?
What ever the bananas can become, the Chinese too can become and be better. They are better in many fields than the Chinese in this piece of rock. They are world Number One or Number Two in many things, not just being the best airline or best port. Is
still Number One in these
