This is unsustainable…
It's why, for instance, S’poreans routinely joke about the PAPs pre-election apologies & promises as wayang.
As such, negative racial stereotypes are often one-directional. In health, many ills have been made “Indian” or “Malay”.
It also arrives with xenophobic tropes of PRC impurity, diet, and barbarity.
This is a problem since the PAP has presented Chinese-SGs as national paragons, with little pushback.
We see such sentiments across social & state media. But they've been here since the 90s, when PRC migration was encouraged to offset rising minority births.
But S’pore’s (Brown) minorities can see through that—especially when it comes to the hoarding.
They typically yell, “SJWs!”, “out of context!”, “reverse racism!”, “we dont see race!”, “sedition!”, “so sensitive!”, and racist slurs.
Once the virus passes, the regular racial & political program will likely resume.
Histories & memories will also be whitewashed or co-opted…
Reports now show S’porean hoarding in JB, thus proving ourselves (again) the region’s beggar-thy-neighbour.
Without a paradigm shift, little will change. But we can at least keep the receipts for historical integrity, and perhaps, actual social change.
But don't donate near the expiry date!
