The Salim-Meralco decisionmakers hate us Filipinos! That is the only logical conclusion any sane man can draw from these facts [enumerated by Columnist R. Tiglao and repeated in the editorial “Salim-Meralco people hate us Filipinos.”].
But I wish to remind Manila Times readers that Anthoni Salim is not ethnically of the majority Malay-Polynesian people in Indonesia who are like the majority of us Filipinos. I do not mean to say that all Indonesians of Chinese blood like Anthoni Salim are haters of the brown Indonesians and Filipinos.
I only want to remind your readers that Anthoni Salim is the son of the late Lim Sieu Liong, who brought a large part of his fortune to Singapore and Hong Kong and employed Mr. Pangilinan to globalize and modernize the financial side of his businesses.
