A tuition centre principal reportedly chased a parent away from the centre with a broom after they expressed that they did not want their primary-school going child to be tutored by an Indian tutor, on the basis of her race.

The matter was revealed on social media by Twitter user @abnorxmal or Sinsemilla who shared that the tutor in question is a colleague of her sister who works at the same centre, which is located in central Singapore. The netizen shared:

“My sister is a full-time tutor and recently a Singaporean Chinese student’s parent complained to the head of the tuition centre that she did not want her child being taught by an Indian.
“The parent was apparently referring to another tutor, a well-qualified Indian lady who taught her child Science and Math.
“According to the tutor, this cunt of a kid took out his/her body spray and started spraying it in the classroom complaining that it was “smelly because of the Indian”.
“My sister is good friends with this fellow Indian tutor and this may sound stupid but she can legitimately assure me that she does not have B.O or anything that would justify this cheebai of a kid’s reaction.”

The parent then approached the centre’s principal – a man in his 30s – only be chased out and told never to return:

“The parent brought this up to the head of the tuition centre, whom is also Chinese, thinking that he would understand and agree. Yknow like it’s some sort of we same same race so ni bang wo, wo bang ni type (“you help me, I help you”) of shit.
“The head of the tuition centre then proceeded to chase this racist Chinese mum and her kid out of the centre with a broom and telling them he never wants to see them step in his tuition centre ever again.”

The netizen ended her story, urging others to come together to combat “systemic racism” in Singapore:
