lowlight: sorry you had the impression i was addressing you, wasn't.
Asian1: i'd love to deal with it if you'd stop being so aggressive. "deal with it" is, as we all know, akin to "go f**k yourself", which i don't think any of my posts ever suggested you go ahead and do. it is also not the most cerebral of retorts, when one stops to think about it.
additionally, i'm the first one to admit there's racism and discrimination everywhere, including in the west. it's the inability to address this issue with a straight face in asia that's hurting us.
and lastly, your previous post essentially rehashed what i said and threw it back at me. i'm sure you can do better than that.
the fact is, we started this thread coolheadedly with comments about discrimination in HK, comprising people's opinions and experiences. then you came along with a passionate, from-the-hip response that indicates you're feeling guilty/outraged/conscious of some deep sentiment, and consequently, it's you that has failed to deal with feedback to that without resorting to you-started-it tactics.
and posting as you please is a given, that's what this forum is about methinks.
upon re-reading this entire thread, jrose asked about discrminiation IN HONG KONG. why then was it necessary to even refer to discrmination anywhere else? you did not answer the original poster's question. there was no need for anyone to "look in the mirror", certainly in light of the initial query.
and i'm very sorry to hear you have no sympathy for me. with a name like Asian1 in mind, that's very troubling. maybe i should rename myself to something equally ethnocentric and then have no sympathy for you, either.
