racism rant

Just because you meet 9 Asians who don't speak English well,

doesn't mean the 10th one you meet is illiterate as well!

doesn't mean you have to start talking to all Asians in broken English when you first meet them. It desn't matter if you think doing this bridges the gap, or makes you a 'speech sympathiser', it is insulting nonetheless!

doesn't mean most Asians are stupid!

doesn't mean those Asians can't write in English well!

I'm sick of this place.

It doesn`t mean that those other 9 Asians , because can`t speak English, are illiterate.


Read you, Rono

I mean, it seems so childish to 'get back' at them, especially since I am not a child anymore, and it seems like I'd stoop down to their level. Yet I want to so badly! Though I know I'd fail at it.

I sympathize in a weird way foray. my dad does this, he thinks he is being nice and helping the people out, and he's definitely not a stupid person either (actually he's a wonderful person). I've yelled at him many times about it but he just doesnt get it; i think its embarrassing. just let it go, you are a lot better than that anyway

Uh, what I think Rono was getting at was that you used the word "illiterate" incorrectly.

It was used loosely, not incorrectly, for crying out loud, is this necessary?
