MIXED-BLOOD S’POREAN TOLD TO GO BACK TO PHILIPPINES BY RACIST CHINESE MAN @ CHANGI AIRPORT

So you repeat yourself, loud and nasty for everyone to hear. “No hugging here. Can you see? This is Singapore. Go hug outside (the rails).” The women are shocked. The child is shocked. I am shocked. Joy sufficiently wiped from their faces, they exit past the rails but the mood for indiscriminate hugging has vanished. “This is Singapore. You Filipinos, go back to the Philippines. This is Singapore.” I stand stunned. My heart feels sick for this family that such ugliness is the first thing that greets them.

SPH-OWNED HWZ FORUM DOING LITTLE TO CURTAIL RACIST OFFENSIVE REMARKS AGAINST S’POREAN MALAY MUSLIMS

I am very upset that Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) is not doing much to curtail the constant racist and offensive comments made by some of the members of Hardwarezone, a site that they own. From my observation, several members of that site like to make fun of Malays and Muslims. Even a thread that initially had nothing to do with Malays or Muslims will end up having someone turning it into one which will ultimately result in another person contributing an offensive remark.
