ANG MOH: SINGAPOREANS DON’T SPEAK PROPER ENGLISH

English as a first language is just propaganda - a legacy from Singapore's dead dictator's regime. No one in Singapore speaks English properly, nor are they able to think in English properly, because English is the first language of not one of Singapore's three main ethnic groups. The Chinese speak Chinese as their first language (or a dialect of same), the Malays Malay and the Indians Tamil. English is the first language of not one of these groups.

RACIST CAROUSELL FEMALE SELLER INSULTS MALAYS

A fellow Carousell user enquired about the item by asking some questions via the Chat function, and made a $300 bid (albeit ridiculously low) .

M’SIAN MINISTER URGE MALAYS TO BOYCOTT CHINESE BUSINESSES

A minister's call for traders to lower the price of goods in line with the drop in oil prices took a racial tone when he called on Malays to boycott Chinese businesses, singling out the Old Town White Coffee franchise because of its alleged DAP links.

INDIAN S’POREAN TOLD SHE MUST SPEAK CHINESE OR NO JOB INTERVIEW AT LLAOLLAO

Sorry” and she was about to walk away. So I said “So….I cant apply?” and she just shook her head and walked away.

SHUT UP WHEN A MINORITY IS TALKING ABOUT RACE

Despite Chinese privilege in Singapore being very real, there is little or no recognition of this concept within the national public sphere and discussions of race. Attempts by minorities such as Thanapal to name this privilege often receive hostile attack from Singapore Chinese, who employ defensive mechanisms similar to deniers of white privilege--to name privilege is divisive, to name privilege is not a solution, to name privilege is rude, to name privilege is racist. In a stroke of unfunny irony, what happens then is that minorities who call out Chinese racism are then termed racist by their aggressors.
