Filipino kid in Canada punished for eating etiquette

i came across teacher sol's post last week, regarding a young Filipino student in Canada who was punished by his school lunch monitor and his principal for not eating properly (phrase mine). by "not eating properly", it refers to our Filipino table etiquette of using spoon and fork when eating.

it's really disturbing, to think that this is happening in a school, in a country that's supposed to be 1st world and home to various race and culture.

inasmuch as we are outraged by the racism, i hope that from our end, we do not also discriminate other people. after all, discrimination goes beyond race.
