Great article at TodayOnline.com recommended to me by Kynne. Thanks! Although not written by a TodayOnline staffer, it was nonetheless published because it is a cool-headed and factual retort to XX’s recent tirade against “foreign workers” (or more specifically Bangladeshis, before she edited her own posts) and her justification for her racism.
That a tertiary-educated 22-year-old (supposedly with an IQ in the top 2 per cent of the population) would be capable of such xenophobic views does not scare me. What does chill me is that she thinks her views are comparable to how corporations select their staff and how banks apply demographic segmentation for marketing reasons.
One ironic point in the article also states that:
… according to 2004 statistics on the Singapore Police Force website, is the increase in molest cases reported in nightspots, the very places which Miss Cheng says are “safe” because foreign workers are generally excluded from them (economically, at least).
