"I'm proud in tweeting with one of my dialects; I can't honestly see a reason to be ashamed of it. I'd rather be ashamed to dictate another."
-- I would have replied this if I was on his level. But to be honest, I'm not and I will never reach that low.
I won't get that infuriated haven't I seen a tweet exactly above my last reply. We were in the middle of a good conversation -- I and Claudiopoi -- when he suddenly posted a tweet to get to my nerves.
It was racism at its radical. I got a screenshot to prove that it really happened but I'm still thinking if I should post it. Oh well. As my friend said in a DM, "...wag mo nalang pansinin. hindi naman nila ikakaganda ang mga rants nila eh. hehe :)".You know what, tama si friend eh! Haha.
Okay. I just needed that breath of fresh air. Bukas makakalimutan ko rin yun. (Kagabi pa dapat ipupublish to kaya ngayon natatawa na lang ako.)
The thing here is the most pressing concern of judgmentalism in our society. Whether we admit it or not, we still possess biases and there is still the idea of the superior versus the inferior.
Kahit ako, pag may nakikita ako sa daan na (okay, this is just an example, hindi ito general sa aming mga Bisaya) construction worker na magpipilit mag-Tagalog pero evident naman na silang pareho ng kausap niya eh Bisaya, napapaisip ako na bakit hindi na lang sila mag-Tagalog para maipakita ng mas mabilis ang gusto nilang sabihin? May accent pa. Matatawa na lang ako.
Okay. Dahil sa wala na akong trace ng pagbi-Bisaya sa Tagalog ko, hindi ko kinakaya-kaya ang mga taong ito. Pero, kita mo: Kahit ako na nga na kababayan sila, eh may hindi magandang sinasabi sa kanila, ano pa kaya ang ibang tao? Kuha mo?
Isa pang halimbawa. Minsan I try to think na wala na ang apartheid spirit dahil dito nag-ugat ang mga malulupit na uri ng rasismo. Pero kung minsan nga pag nakakakita ako ng maiitim na tao sa TV, may mga negative thoughts agad na pumapasok. Unsolicited. Bigla ko na lang maiisip. Paano pa kaya kung nasa bansang Amerika ako, at hindi kasing lawak ang pananaw ko ng mga bumoto kay pareng Obama? Siguro mas malala pa dun.
Marunong ako ng salitang Aleman, German in English. Nung mga unang araw ko sa PR, pang-international ako 'teh, may nag-message sa akin na Aleman. Sabi niya, magmeet daw kami sa Germany. Susko, ang bata ko pa nun no! Tsaka wala pa akong pera at visa. Sinabi ko yun sa kanya. Sabi niya sa akin, (translated to English) maybe because of your color. Ok gow.
Judgmentalism is equal to colonial mentality. There is no progress in these methods of reckoning, nor is there good. By promoting these destructive criticisms, there is always false competition and passionate dislike together with meddling. If we allot our spare time in these rubbish, we could almost calculate the earnings that we could have owned had we used our time efficiently. Had we made the constructive critiques, it would have encouraged optimistic changes, giving path to advancement. Sufferings would not be alleviated in this condition, dwelling in negativity will escalate it.
To that person: If you got nothing to do, have a hobby. Engage yourself in worthwhile activities which will make your time well spent. Enroll in a gym session. Better yet try studying other languages: Medical surveys say that the more linguistics a person knows, the more it widens the avenues of the neurons which WILL actually make you brighter and smarter! If the mind is ruled with pessimistic ideas, it will show in your appearance, I bet you my billion gold coins in Pet Society. Chillax. Smile. Ok gow.
