How has it happened?sangeetha wrote:Hello friends,
My friend who stays in one of the condos was racially abused by the resident and was asked her to leave the country and his land . She was shocked to here that . Where in, the Government is encouraging the expats to walk in. Can u advise me how to take an action against this.
Couldn't agree more. Try telling somebody of Asian extraction they are wrong about something, try to point out their failings and misunderstandings and even try to help and you are too often regarded as just some arrogant, mean ang moh (or whatever term is used in whichever country). OK flame me if you must, I never said westerners are perfect and indeed they are not but I wish some people in this world would accept a few home truths about themselves.sundaymorningstaple wrote:It usually happens when a local is told off/rebuked/scolded by foreigner for being rude, inconsiderate, socially inept, lacking spatial awareness or just being a plain jerk. They are not used to being called out for their anti-social activities so this aggressiveness is their only retort. They drive much the same way if you haven't noticed. Get used to it. Also, it happens even more if you happen to be an Asian foreigner here as well as they feel you are in direct competition with them for their jobs so they are sensitive and the animosity is lurking always just below the surface. What to do?
i'm not sure what your ethnicity, skin color and nationality is, but i assure you, such "surprising" behavior is not limited to singapore.sangeetha wrote:and in the mean time started saying that this is my land we can do anything here, u are foreigner, i am singaporean, u dont have any right here, just leave the condo and the country.We all were shocked to here that...
Personally, I would drop the matter. Escalating something like this can lead to other undesirable behaviour. Turn the other cheek & hope it goes away by itself.sangeetha wrote: thank u for the concern. Today we have lodged one more written complaint about the condo residents that the neisance they are creating for us and asked to give us reply in one week. Every one are very serious in this issue as to get some respect.
that reaction is related to education and personality not "asian extraction"Plavt wrote:Try telling somebody of Asian extraction they are wrong about something, try to point out their failings and misunderstandings and even try to help and you are too often regarded as just some arrogant, mean ang moh (or whatever term is used in whichever country).
So, the population doesn't mirror exactly what the government says? I am presuming you are Indian - is your friend Indian as well?She was shocked to here that Shocked . Where in, the Government is encouraging the expats to walk in
