I remember there was one time that I took a taxi to go to Pavillion. And on my way, a lorry tried to come out from a junction without stopping, or even looking first. Ikut undang-undang jalan raya pun, memang pemandu lori tu salah… (Markah exam undang-undang jalan raya I boleh tahan tinggi jugak okkay, hehehe)
But what scared me more was the taxi driver’s response over that situation. He was totally really really angry with the lorry driver. I mean really really angry. He showed the lorry driver his fist and a rude sign saying something like “Watch out you bastard” (lol). I mean, yea, If I’m the taxi driver, I would get angry too. But I personally think he’s just being wayyy overreacted.
The lorry driver happens to be an Indian driver. So after a few seconds, he started babbling about how useless Indian is, how the Indian, Chinese and other races are our biggest enemy and everything. He also babbled about how the race integration in our country looks so harmony from the outside, but it’s totally the opposite in his view. Well, of course it is when you think and want it to be! DUH! lol. I beg to differ!
In my opinion, this all depends on you, yourself. Because you are what you think. If you think other races are bad, don’t treat you right, disrespect you… bla bla bla, then that’s the way it’s going to be. That’s what’s going to happen to you. You can’t expect others to respect you when you have no respect on others as well. Treat people the way you want to be treated. And that is what the society is lacking!
And the other reason peace is hard to find is because people keep looking, searching and focusing on our differences instead of enjoying our common and similarities. Differences should be something you can learn and understand, not to be reason to hate each other. In my experience, I find it very interesting to befriend with people from other races or countries, because I get to open my heart and mind to much more new things :)
Why God created us with so many races? It is so that we can get to know each other, learn each others’ respective cultures and learn to respect each other <3 No matter who we are, each one of us has our own specialty and weakness… so basically, we’re all the same ;)
Laundry is the only thing that should be separated by color.
p/s: Being racist is so outdated.
