  • Hi, Joyce
    I’m glad to answer your question. Of course, we should encouraging innovation in nowadays. why we should remain the traditional industry, because it is a large job suppiler and provide a lot of opportunities to the people who needed. To this case, I also would like to tell you that the defination of traditional industry is very wide, such the constrcution work, farm work and some manufacturing. I think it’s still enential for our life in the coming furture.

  • To darylgoh23 ,
    Time is different , the answer may be different. If u mean in 1990s, the population of whites is smaller than Blacks, the discrimination to Whites may happen, because of the long time history about Blacks and Whites, i think it's highly possible. But if u mean it happen in 21th century. I think it may not happen, although Blacks are treated not well or badly before, but it already passed, people always look forward, live forward, no one want to grab the past, and live in sad and hatred life. right?

  • Hi Lee Choon Ghee, for the question you post, my answer will be yes, but the rules and guidance cannot be impose immediately to the situation now, as like in Singapore, the rules and guidance wasn't implemented overnight, but through a slow process since the days when Singapore became independent or maybe earlier. Hope I have answered your question.

  • Hi Thanks for enlightening us about the LA riots
    i have a question. For slide 28, why do we need to remain the traditional industry?
    isn't the government encouraging 'innovation and enterprise' of late?

  • Racial profiling is the consideration of race early on in criminal investigations. If a member of a race is considered more likely to be involved in criminal behavior due to his race, he may be more often suspected of committing crimes, even when no evidence exists to justify this supposition. One of the most common cases of racial profiling is “driving while black” or DWB in America.Blacks are much more likely to be stopped and searchedPolice are more likely to use force against a black (2.7 %) or Hispanic (2.4 %) driver than a white (0.8 %) driver
