One time a friend of mine reprimanded me for making fun of a person’s skin colour. That person in question was the Vice President Jejomar Binay. For her, my joke was of bad taste, and it’s politically incorrect to mock somebody because of his skin.
True. It is politically incorrect. I really want to be a responsible citizen, and a reasonable blogger. But what the heck, this is Binay.
If I say, “Binay is a good person. He’s corrupt-free”. That is lying. It’s not how I feel and think about him and I will lose all credibility as a blogger and as a human being.
If I say “Binay is corrupt to the bones.”, for me that's truth, but for onion-skinned crocodiles in the legislature that is called cybercrime, according to Republic Act 10175. I have no intentions of breaking any law.
So what am I supposed to think? What am I supposed to say? What am I supposed to do?
Our laws and ethics do not leave me any other choice but to choose the greater good. Honesty is the best policy.
I’m going back to my being politically incorrect. Nancy, you’re next.
