really,whatever we post on this page and whatever we write on this web log is whatever we seek to convey to someone reading or looking at this site....but by what means can action be taken upon words that are up on a text block which can be removed and then replaced?
seriously, all the hoo hah about the web logs on racial discrimination and the A*star issue by a student half way around the globe is something thats spookily true, that weblogs are being noticed and that there is no more freedom of expression...if there were, why are there lawsuits threatening ppl who defame others when sticks and stones will break our bones and names will never hurt us?words, written to express thoughts and suggestions should be taken with a pinch of salt, should it not?especially if its on a blog, after all where is the right to freedom of thought and expression if we were not allowed to speak our minds?
but even so i think there are really boundaries, one of which that has been crossed is that of the racial discrimination in singapore...its probably true to say that everyone of us has told a racial joke or something like that before...but its sad to noe that we discriminate color even though the blood that runs in our veins is the same hue of maroon....we're 99.9% genetically similar, and yet there is no tolerance for each other in some people's eyes....i had a fren tell me that in my sec schl her classmate yelled at an indian schlmate to leave the class after the indian schlmate stepped in....her reason:" i hate indians"...i so wished i was there to slap her in her face and demand she apologise...its disgusting when we see each other in different lights just because they are culturally different or they have a different skin color....cos we're all the same....we're homo sapiens, humans the same species living on the same planet and breathing the same air....everyone is the same, just give them the chance to show it to you and take everything with an open mind and i'm sure you'll realise that the people around you, although different in skin color, speaks the same language as you, breathes the same air as you, has 99.9% similar genetic makeup as you...and is of course...if you are human...human too....
