I can't answer the question because I am unable to fathom the alleged illogic in the first place.

I think it's probably best we ditched this topic for good.

I think most people aren't racist, and if they are, they don't tend to show it. Unfortunately it's the isolated unpleasant incidents that stand out which you remember.
I wasn't really upset by those incidents except the first one and that was because I was in a totally jolly mood and it came out of nowhere. If it's only random verbal assault, I feel like I get the frustration that comes from not understanding(or not wanting to understand) a culture radically different from yours. Sometimes when I look at our culture from an alien point of view, I sympathize with how Americans might feel.

For example: At university, all the Indians and Chinese were really aggressive in reserving the tennis courts. They found out that a system was in place and made it top priority to use it to the maximum. This sort of aggressive mindset comes from having been brought up in over-populated countries with limited resources. The American kids were really casual and didn't worry about reservations and such and consequently got kicked out of the courts all the time . I feel like I would completely understand if they wanted to kick us out of their country.

Quote:
This isn't really racist per se, but lots of idiot Singaporeans working in the service industry, such as a sales assistant in Prada, treat white customers a lot better than the local customers. I can't stand how some Singaporeans worship white people as if they are necessarily superior. It's disgusting.
Seems like this is a trait common to all formely colonized nations. Indians were extremely proud of their cultural achievements, philosophy etc. for a long time until the Brits crushed their pride completely. Now we are a mass of confused people. There are many who cannot get over our former glories and the remaining cannot overcome the attitude of subservience to white people.

Interesting. Getta once told me it is a similar situation in Greece. Looks like other than Western Europe, US and maybe Australia, most nations have similar insecurities.
