Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: Two Nigerian men identified as NMEGBU IOSEPH, 28-year-old and MICHAEL DANIEL, 43-year-old, were arrested for attacking each other on November 05, 2018, on street 392, Sangkat Beung Keng Kong1, Khan Chamkamorn, Phnom Penh.

Before the incident, the two Nigerians were arguing with each other in a restaurant. Then, when they went outside on the street, they had a punch-up and the police were called.

The police took the two men to Beung Kenkong police post for case preparation before sending them to the Immigration Department.

The title of the topic changed, why?
For me there is nothing racist. It's not about the color, it's about the face. Are they black : yes, do they have scary face : yes.

Scary face 😨

Not scary face 😄

Just curious please don’t get angry with my question. Is the title of this thread somewhat racist?
If it's racist to describe a black person as scary then all Spice Girls fans are racist because the black one is named Scary Spice.

Even with the change in title it still doesn’t sound right. You see, Nigeria is having a hard time these days with all those bad news coming from that country, with a title like this doesn’t really put Nigeria in a good light.

Perhaps the title should be simply “Two person arrested for fighting” cos if mention “Two men . . . “ sounds sexists to me you see.
