i notice, people these days...just becoming more and more blind when it comes to respect other people. people these days don't know how to respect other people festive celebration, they don't know how to respect other religions, they don't know how to respect other people feelings, they don't know how to respect other races, they don't know how to respect other countries, they don't know how to respect other ethnic, they don't know how to respect animals, they don't know how to respect arts, they don't know how to respect many other things.
fine, we all have our own opinions about something, but note this in your head, not everyone has the same opinion as you are, so the least you could do is try to respect. don't just expect people to respect you, you have to do the same regardless of their age or status.
i've seen comments in facebook where a group of friends commenting on my friend's status and totally insult malay publicly. and i've seen some other group of people in facebook make fun of deepavali. this is all very stupid. a wise man once said; don't write anything online that you can't defend in court. don't these people realize by now that people can get arrested or sued for what they wrote on facebook? do they want to be arrested to actually learn it? if you hate a specific race so much, fine, go talk about it with your friends but don't take it publicly, if you're that stupid not to know how to see the good and bad things in a race or religion then at least try to respect it so you don't look even more like a total ass hole.
