Recently there had been a furor in Singapore over a post made by a foreign undergraduate from China describing Singaporeans as dogs. The problem started when Mr. Sun Xu, an undergraduate from China who is studying in Singapore on a Singapore scholarship, accidentally bumped into some senior Singapore citizens, and ended up being the subject of angry stares and muted mutterings.
Feeling peeved, he then went on China's microblog "Weibo" and posted that, "there are more dogs than humans in Singapore.” Singaporeans were up in arms over the matter especially since Mr. Sun is here on a Singapore scholarship paid for by Singapore taxpayers.
I don’t see why Singaporeans are so upset of the post. So this idiot is venting over bumping into senior citizens and is calling Singaporeans bad names over the incident. Is it that much of a surprise?
I have seen and heard of many Singaporeans complaining about foreigners and calling foreigners bad names. Is it that much of a surprise they are doing the same thing to Singaporeans? To me, the feeling between Singaporeans and Chinese foreigners is one of mutual dislike so I’m not shocked by the post at all.
The problem for Mr. Sun was that he did his venting on a public forum for all to see. However he is hardly the only foreigner in Singapore who feels this way about Singaporeans. The only thing is that most of them are smart enough to do their complaining privately, usually with words that are much worse than anything Mr. Sun posted.
So get a grip people. That post is nothing.
