Majority vs. Individuality

It is either that we are quite outdated or the news on the wire now is hot about molestations that happened in crowded areas. In fact, it is quite rampant that it does not only involve Singapore or foreign workers. Believe it or not, it happens everywhere in the world.

But this is not the point of this post.

This post wants to talk about how majority could overcome individuality then begin to group a certain category as the bad seed. However this post is not to say that molestations is A okay. It is merely to show that one major category had the finger pointed at, because frequent cases of happening derived from their countrymen or brothers.

In the recently hot news, foreign workers, or specifically 'dark coloured' people are put on the cross and shall be ready to be burn at stake. But is it fair to pin point on all 'dark coloured' people? You can't deny it but to see the burning hatred on all comments are towards them.

And when a couple of other individuals have the same experience involving the same group of people, the hatred avalanched down and could possibly create a bigger problem.

This is almost like to compare how China hated Japan for the Nanking rape. How our senior citizens hated Japanese for what they did during the World War II. How Islam hated Jews for what they did thousand years ago. The Indonesian Chinese-Local riot. How some who still have not recovered from May 1969 riot in Malaysia.

As a result of all these hatred and lack of toleration, individual who happens to be related to any of these incident, directly or indirectly, are affected because people don't target individuality now. Instead they hit on the majority.

Sad but true.

How TRUE !! Like the generalisation of Malays are lazy, Chinese are crooks, Indians are drunkards and Bengalis are sodomiser.

What about the ethnics i.e. Orang Asli? Ohh, they are insignificant!!

Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday on 15th January. Are we paying a tribute?
