Perplexed by rudeness

I AM concerned about a number of incidents regarding Filipinos; incidents of Filipinos being refused entry to a club in Wan Chai, banned from using certain lifts and stopped from boarding shuttle buses.

Why do these things happen and also why do some Hong Kong people not want to see Filipino maids dress up during their day off and going out? Most maids wear a uniform on the six days a week they work and Sunday is their only day off. They just want to dress up properly and in a presentable way, but still, they are looked at rudely and are at the receiving end of unpleasant remarks and criticism.

What have we done in this society, that we are being discriminated against in every way and deprived of our own personal rights? Why can't people just be nice to us. After all we are not a burden to Hong Kong but are actually an asset.
