  • i find that minister mentor's encouragement of more chinese immigrants have caused more havoc in the country. Lots of them are coming over, but how are they benefitting us? When i observe them, most of them are just wasting our country's resources. Even though some of them are talented, do anyone think they will stay when singapore is in trouble. So what if they have gotten PRs and serve the nation. It is still the same. The knowledge they have learnt here will be used in their own country. Do anyone thinks they will imply those knowledge and contribute back to singapore? In my opinion, day dream.

    Singapore looks after each foreign workers' welfare. Ministry of Manpower will hand out tough penalties to people who mistreat workers. Employers who employ foreign workers, have to follow strict rules and criterias.

    Chinese do not view malays and indians as likely perpetrator of crimes. It's down to each individual's perspective and views.

    Chinese don't critise minorities, Afterall we are living in a muti-racial country. We are taught to understand and accept one another.

    Comparison of wealth between different races should be looked from another point of view. There lots of factors that determine the amount each individual earn. Earnings are quite average between the middle class.

    Singapore have quite of a good mix of different races in politics. Interest in politics are down to each individual.

    Singaporeans do have good understanding and acceptanecs between one another regardless race or religion. Therefore i doubt the exact figures and explanation for it.

  • As shown in previous slide, majority Han and Han only employ their own race.Banning of the 2000 year old Uyghur languageThe September 11 terrorist attacks provided a perfect opportunity for China to step up pressure on Uyghurs and the Uyghur national identity. Notes:Chinese efforts in this regard include branding every incidence of civil unrest or discontent with the terrorism label; increased religious persecution; harsh political suppression; sharp ethnic discrimination in employment, education and social participation; banning the more than 2000 year old Uyghur language from schools and forcefully imposing Chinese education starting from the kindergarten level; implementing the same Chinese law differently for Uyghurs; forcing Uyghur families to send their children to mainland China for employment arrangements while bringing millions of Han Chinese to the Uyghur region to fill employment vacancies; and generally coercing Uyghurs to become like the Chinese by sacrificing their unique identity.
