new year's eve, foreign workers, and spray cans

was at orchard cineleisure to watch the suns [aka boredphucks] homecoming performance. more on that performance perhaps later, but i was very shocked at the "spraying" scenes that i saw. many people armed with foam sprays were "attacking" passerbys, mostly at females passerbys. what made it worse, was that it seems some were doing it as a group. worst of all, it seemed to be groups of local men vs groups of male foreigners. these foreigners were mostly indian or bangladeshi. to me, the incidents took on a racial undertone. trolled through the 3 local newspapers online [st, today, and new paper], but did not see any article on this issue, so i thought i should do my part...

finally, a news report. but no mention of the racial tension.
