red hair literally. refers to caucasians.

the original term is 'ang moh gui', meaning a caucasian devil. 'ang moh gui' is used by ppl in 'nanyang' decades ago. most probably referring to colonial masters, who were mostly britons.

now, the 'gui'is dropped and juz means caucasian. no hatred involved.
me: "that ang moh is shuai (chinese word for handsome. To me, it also includes being hot)"
my friend: "well, most ang mohs are.."

ang mohs, are you all happy?

A racist term used by Singaporeans, towards white person. The vast majority of its usage is in a derogatory sense. It is the equivalent of a white person calling a Chinese person a "chink", except saying chink in any Western country will get you in trouble. If a Singaporean calls you Ang Moh they will most likely get away with it, but if you call a Chinese looking person a "chink" in a Western country, then you will most likely be brought to court.

It is an incredibly stupid double standard, that is dismissed very easily by Singaporeans who say "it's just what we call Caucasians". It is absolutely a racist term, pure and simple.
Singaporean man: "Look at that fucking Ang Moh, thinking he's the shit, coming to our country, taking all our girls and jobs"
