Worst case of ignorance?

35
Posted 16th Mar
does anyone else think this was a case of ignorance?
I boarded a bus this morning and at the same time as a Asian woman.
there was a young couple sitting near the front of the bus when they seen the Asian woman got on the bus they covered their faces with their jackets and hoods. soon as she got off they uncovered their faces. the thing I find ironic is I work in hospital come across sick people all the time and I was sitting closer to them. they probably had more chance of catching something from me than the lady. is it just me that thinks it's wrong to be stereotyping

Should have given her a hug.

Oh wait, we're not supposed to do that anymore.

If I'm being honest ... I probably would have said something... I have done a few times before....most of the time they won't say anything back and they will think twice before they do it again but there was one time I didn't and I really regretted it.

It's kind of a different thing but I saw this lady full frontal slap her two year old in the face because she couldn't get down the stairs fast enough to get her train and usually I say stuff to people and this lady was tiny but I thought...what am I gonna do? But I really regretted it... if this lady does that out in broad day light at Wimbledon train station.. god knows what she does at home and I should have called someone or tried to stop her gettibg on the train

I hate people like that... unfotunately those idiots mate with other idiots and birth rude idiot babies and thus the cycle continues.. I really do believe in karma though or something like that... if you act like a jerk you will get it back.

OP, you asked, "...is it just me that thinks it's wrong to be stereotyping."

Answer: 100%.

Why?

Numerically, you did not do a fair sampling. Namely, you did not follow this couple to observe further instances of xenophobia. However, you could very well be right.

As well as the part of humanity showing their true colours judging people by the amount toilet rolls and virtually nothing else.

Namely,

A buy insane amount of toilet rolls <==== true colours of A
B judges A insanely by the insane amount of toilet rolls <=======whence the true colours of B which is equal to A's behaviour - insane amounts

Yes you did, you said, "Humanity has already shown it's true colours through the purchasing of insane amounts of toilet paper."


You have shown your true colours, your singular personal response to others' (humanity) personal singular response - insane amount of toilet paper. You both share the same principle - a singularity for humanity. The likeness of behaviour is: they are for toilet paper, and your are for the buyer of the toilet paper.

Final evidence: the topic of this thread is about a couple's behaviour towards a passenger. But, you chose to go off topic and referred back to toilet paper.

Idiots, world is full of them..

But who am I judge, my wife told me to buy essentials just in case things go bad, I came back with bottles of whisky and wine and yes of course gin and tonic for her.
I could see the love in her eyes when she saw the bags, they were red like heart red and that day she let me have my fav meal of bread and butter and on top she also let me watch my fav show and stay in living room all night

If true, this is 100%? xenophobia, a category of ignorance? Using maths, it is indeterminable as to which race, is more risky, as distinguishable by looks, it is also indistinguishable by job risks, age , and so on.

Thanks for your understanding. I am off to get ready to analyse the government's science data on herd immunity modelling data later on, when they are released for scrutiny.

Don't go on social media. Thousands upon thousands of racist remarks towards oriental people due to covid19. The classic ones seem to be blaming it all on them eating dogs and cats. Clueless and uneducated.

Clueless and uneducated indeed, everyone knows its because they eat bat's and snakes (my attempt at wit and not unconscious bias)

There is just one observation of this couple. Therefore, it is 100% wrong whatever the statement is. With one observation it is impossible to do any trending.

Especially, the "pill lucks" who call me names without even one single observation! They do damage real bad.
Pocket racists the fools of society
You failed to describe the young couple, probably from Middle east or further afield, who knows with only a selected story like this?
