      Mau orang berkulit hitam, orang cina, ataupun yang lain. Kita mestinya tetep respect sama mereka.

      Trevor ga lancar bahasa Indonesia dodol, makanya mereka pake bahasa Cina biar lebih lancar ngobrolnya. Lagian itu itungannya udah masuk bahasa etnis, kaya bahasa Batak, Jawa, Ambon dll. Jadi ngapain juga lu gak seneng berlebihan. Pas Trevor ke India dan ada etnis Cina di India yang ngomong pake bahasa Cina aja netizen India mana ada yang ngomel-ngomel.
