So w/o Critical Race Theory, would that make someone accosting a mixed-race couple okay? Would the absence of CRT prevent that person from accosting a mixed-race couple? Would absence of CRT mean no racism in Sg? Why is @zaobaosg picking up a US right wing trope about race?
Jadi tanpa Teori Perlumbaan Kritikal, menegur orang yg lain kerana anda tk suka hubungan mereka berdasarkan etnis dapat diterima? Atau tanpa TPK, orang ini tk akan menegur orang yg lain kerana perlumbaan mereka? Atau tanpa TPK, fahaman perkauman akan hilang?
Di mana Zaobao mencari apa yang kelihatan seperti pandangan sayap kanan AS ketika cuba mempertahankan dari kritikan?
Maybe less accusation, more self-reflection, and thinking about how to improve might help. Just maybe.
Mungkin beberapa refleksi diri dan memikirkan tentang bagaimana meningkatkan mungkin dapat membantu. Mungkin saja.
Was this because of critical race theory too, or just regular external influence?
Ini ada kerana Teori Pelumbaan Kritikal juga? Atau hanya pengaruh asing yang biasa?…
Also this. That Critical Race Theory sure works fast.…
Teori Perlumbaan Kritikal, pandemi, dan pengaruh asing pengaruh asing tentu merebak dengan cepat siol!

So does opposing a non-binding UN resolution on an arms embargo on Myanmar help to speed up or slow down the process and make it more or less disappointing?…
"Several ASEAN nations were comfortable with weapons freeze being included in the non-binding resolution, they said, but resistance led by Thailand and Singapore ensured ASEAN requested the clause be removed.”…
/Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam wrote to Liechtenstein, which has drafted the resolution, after a planned vote last week was postponed at the last minute./…

1/ @zaobaosg, Singapore’s Mandarin broadsheet, runs articles & statements pushing moral panic and slipper slope over announcement to possibly let medical workers wear the tudung. One even threatens that may lead to de-criminalization of male homosexuality.
2/ It’s 2021 & Sg and roughly 1/3 Singapore citizen marriages are with non-Singaporeans. It’s time to get used to diversity. So long as someone’s personal life does not affect work and does not harm anyone else, there is no need to keep policing them.…
3/ Some older, Mandarin-speaking Singaporeans once experienced the denial opportunities because of their education. The least @zaobaosg and its contributors can do is to remember that past and think about the importance of non-discrimination.

A key way to address unwanted foreign influence is transparency. Gauge of seriousness in any new law are public asset and income declarations by political appointees and senior public servants and their immediate families, also political parties. 1/…
Can also include head and board members of statutory bodies. Better yet, have key political appointees put assets in blind trusts while in office 2/
Can even have a cooling off period for public officials (political appointees & senior public servants), prohibiting work in sector they oversaw for a period after leaving office for private sector. Can be anywhere from 18-36 months, depending on sensitivity of last job. 3/
