Actually come to think of it, I was the one who was being a big racist. The Chinese girl whom I assumed was Chinese, how can I just make an assumption that she is a Chinese? By just looking at her fair skin and small slit eyes, how can I possibly make the assumption that she is Chinese? By making that assumption, I am actually generalizing that all Chinese have fair skin and slit eyes.

Same for that girl who was trying to sell me the Haj package. She was the one being fair, she asked everyone for the package, irrespective of whether that person is a Chinese, Malay or Indian, which is the right thing to do. Again I am over generalizing, some Chinese can also be Muslims. Who am I to judge that only Malays can be Muslims?

I stand corrected.
