    Default HKers rated as among world's racist people?

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/...rticle1736042/

    Interesting how India is also rated up the top for not wanting people of a different religion and people who speaks a different language as neighbours. Can this graph be right?
    Enlighten me...

    because they are not interested, they cannot find it on the globe/map. a lot of people dunno where is Singapore, they thought we are in China or Japan...

    we are too small to be significant, we are not center of interest.

    Singapore cannot be on this list because we 'market' ourselves as multi racial, multi religious right?

    Don't care what SOME of our locals think. It's our countries direction. hehe. So we should be one of the top in tolerance.

    Is this survey done by the Swedish?

    Either they are the nicest people on planet Earth or they 真是太不挑了'..

    Notice if you put your screen resolution to 1800x1270 that Singapore is on the list to the far.... right

    Wonder how accurate this survey is...at a glance...asians are on the right, while western are on the left.... while my personal experience seems to indicate otherwise...

    Something seems to be wrong with the data. Maybe the survey sample was too small. Jordanians are either top or second in every single category, making them the world's most intolerant people by a huge margin.

    My country, Canada, is listed as 2nd on the list. The newspaper that did this survey (Globe and Mail) is Canada's national newspaper.... coincidence? Hmmm....

    I lived in Hong Kong for 3 years before coming to Singapore. I never felt that I was discriminated there and felt very comfortable with the locals. I made a lot of friends and enjoyed my stay very much. I am surprised that Hong Kong faired so poorly on this survey.

    There are many Hong Kong people living in Canada, especially in Vancouver and Toronto. In fact, so many have immigrated, that Chinese has become the 3rd most spoken language in the country (after English and French). The Hong Kongers who have come to Canada seem to have integrated very well and have contributed a lot to the country.

    As much as I liked Hong Kong, I have to admit, that I prefer Singapore as a place to live. People here are more laid back than Hong Kongers and English is widely spoken. My only problem is the unbearable heat but that cannot be helped. Singapore has to be the safest place I've ever lived anywhere on earth. Singaporeans have a great thing going here and all citizens should be proud of the accomplishments they've made. Even though the entire country could easily fit within the borders of the City of Toronto, it has the wealth and prestige of a much larger nation.

    I am not sure HKers are racists, but I am certain they are among the most materialistic people in the world.

    Are you Caucasian? It's an open secret that most Hong Kong-ers don't like dark-skinned foreigners i.e. Indians etc.
