This woman's behaviour is impossibly horrendous. I could not believe she just hurled words of Racism onto people like that. Her words not only involved hurting the other party but also insulting the party's country. I feel that such behaviour should not be tolerated in any country and I think that it is upright justice that she is paying for it.

Honestly, I was shocked when I saw this video. No one deserves to be told off like that!! If I was there, I could not care less and stood up for my morals; for what I think is right. What she said was simply awful. I am grateful to the person who took this video, because I am pretty sure that without this video, no action would be taken, and this act of racism would not have been known to the world. I think that this lady should pay others more respect and have more patience and try not to disgrace herself next time in public.

I am really disgusted at this lady's behavior, who gave her the right to insult chinese people like that.She even quarreled and mock her boyfriend saying that he can't even have a regular girlfriend.

In Singapore’s Shadows

ItIt was a single death that sparked the riot. Then the riot sparked a spouting of racist hatred that belies Singapore’s very orderly image – just as the country’s leaders were urging their multicultural populace to live in peace and harmony.

Singapore is known for being a multiracial society that practices harmonious living within citizens, but all this sugarcoats the underlying face that racism is prevalent in singapore. Many singaporeans do not like the increase of number of foreigners entering singapore. Many keep it within themselves and deal with it but there are people who voice their opinions out by giving out dirty looks, and voicing out bad remarks. Although this may seem like nothing, it could have sparked many riots for example the ones mentioned in the article.

I feel that Singapore has always been viewed as multi-racial country. Peel off the sugar-coated layers and you see that still some notes of racism can be found. I feel that this situation is a wake up call to many of us. To watch what we say and do in our lives. Racism is not to be taken lightly in a multi-racial country like this. The government has been definitely doing many things to improve the racial condition of Singapore after this situation so I feel that we should all play apart in this and watch over our actions.
