If you grew up in Singapore, you probably know at least one person of this racial makeup, with interracial marriages becoming increasingly common over the years. A born and bred Singaporean kid — standard 90s PAP kindergarten uniform included.
In today's edition of "People who need to learn how to mind their own business," a Chinese man in Singapore verbally abused and harassed a Singaporean man of Indian origin. The Indian-origin man named Dave Parkash was out with his girlfriend who is half-Chinese and half-Thai when the Chinese man approached them.
The unnamed Chinese man confronted the couple and told them that they must be dating people only from their own race. The man, extremely rude and shameless in his tone, went as far as saying that Indian men prey on Chinese girls. He even accused Parkash of doing the same. The Chinese man then questioned the girl if her parents would be proud of her for dating an Indian man.
Parkash posted the 9-minute-long video of the confrontation shot by his girlfriend with the caption, " My name is Dave Parkash. I am a Singaporean.
Today I feel embarrassed, humiliated and hurt by how I was treated by another fellow Singaporean. He added, "My girlfriend and I was confronted by a man who told us that we should only be dating people of our own race.
He called himself a racist and even blamed us for being racist just because my gf and I are from different races. He humiliated us in public by shaming both her and I like as though we did something wrong. He continued, "I come from a mixed-race background and so is my gf.
We both are mixed-race but we are proud to be Singaporeans. I feel we shouldn't be publicly shamed just because of our skin colour. Love is love.
Read and win!
Love has no race love has no religion. You and I should be able to love whoever we wanna love.
Let's not become like this man in the video. He ended it by writing, "To this man who may end up watching this, I hope you learn to stop being a racist and let us all live in harmony. He also said that the video is yet to be verified, however, if it is the way it looks, it is a horrible thing to have taken place.
And some try to explain away, each time something like this happens," he said. Shanmugam added, "I used to believe that Singapore was moving in the right direction on racial tolerance and harmony.
