Good Grief.

Lotsa hate coming from Hong Kong and Chinese mainlanders over photos posted over social networking sites and blogs - photos of Filipino students posing with the bus behind them, etc. These kids attended a Buddhist prayer ceremony honoring the victims yesterday, and didn't know any better. They took a photo to remember the moment, but some people thought it would be a great thing to post these photos for all to mock!

Good grief. These photos have stirred more anger. Forums are abuzz with angry citizens calling Filipinos monkeys, maids, etc. :( Sad. But I cannot blame them. I'd be pissed, too.

Maybe we should exercise better discernment when it comes to these things. Best to promote peace in tense situations over provoking more hate. Why do we have to make fun of everything? We should know our place and avoid doing things in bad taste.
