Breaking news: There is no racism in Singapore -- -- In other news, war is peace, freedom is slavery, &c. @illyrica

I refer to this article about the use of the term "Bangla" http://theonlinecitizen.com/2012/03/tnp-accused-of-racism/ I agree with the Editor of The New Paper that they use this term as a shorter form for Bangladeshi, which is too long for a newspaper headline and it was not intended to be derogatory. It is important that we treat all people with respect, so that there is no misunderstanding about superiority and derogation. I have read in the blogs that Singaporeans are referred to as Sinkies, just like Hongkongers are referred to as Honkies. If this is intended to be a shorter form, it is all right. But the intent should be for convenience, rather than to be insulting to other people.
