The repression and denial of opportunity towards
The Lee Ruling Family, father and son team, have no respect for any laws. Although the Constitution demands equal opportunity to all, they simply ignore it. The island has no race relations laws and the government departments and private companies are free to engage in racial discrimination at will.
20 years ago, the island had just 50% of the population of ethnic Chinese race. Today the island's ethnic Chinese component is about 77% and increasing. 20 years ago the ethnic Malays and Indians formed about 50% of the island population. Today Malays are no more than 13% and Indians a mere 8%, and decreasing.
This huge increase in Chinese numbers is not because they procreate more. In fact it is just the opposite. They have the lowest birth rate in the island and the lowest birth rate in the world, a mere 1% or so. If matters were left alone the ethnic Chinese would disappear from the island first.
Why then, you will ask has their population increased so much. Well, it is because Lee Kuan Yew and his son, who make up the tag team of the Lee Ruling Family, who are themselves of Chinese descent, prefer their own race.
They don't like Malays whom they consider inferior to them and they don't like Indians whom they consider troublemakers. In
Of course there are exceptions, and of course I will give credit to Chee Soon Juan, an ethnic Chinese who stands out from the rest as one man with more testosterone unlike others of his race, and the courage to stand up to the Lee Family at great cost to himself.
Therefore it is not surprising that, even though the Constitution demands equal treatment of the different ethnicities, they have over the last decade made a determined effort to increase the Chinese population in the island at the expense of the other ethnicities.
This they have done and continue to do to this day by bringing in plane loads of Chinese from the Peoples Republic of China to settle in Singapore and give them instant citizenship, which explains why there are now 77% Chinese extraction population in the island and Malays who by the way are the original inhabitants have been reduced to a mere 13% and the Indians to a mere 8%.
Of course what the Lee Ruling Family is doing is downright illegal and a violation of the Constitution which requires equal treatment. But it won't do you any good complaining to the Lees because they simply don't care for the Constitution, for you for anybody else. Why this is so, is because he has the
But wait a minute, is there not the rule of law you may ask. No there isn't in this island. There is the rule of the Lees; that is what it is.
At this rate of massive importation of Chinese immigrants and the Malay and Indian population decreasing fast, very soon there will be only ethnic Chinese in Lee's Singapore interspersed with a few white people who would manage the offshore banks to cater for the money launderers and Indonesian millionaire thieves who have taken up residence there.
We should not forget the Russians, as they are becoming the largest group of millionaires who have become rich on bribes, theft and corruption under Putin who now call Lee’s
Today Malays and Indians are denied jobs because Lee's Chinese employers refuse to employ them. Every job vacancy listed in the island carry the notation "Only Chinese need apply" or "Knowledge of Mandarin required". There was one instance where a an Indian realizing the problem decided to learn Chinese but still did not get the job, the excuse being that the Chinese customers would not appreciate a non Chinese looking person. Of course it was not possible to change the color of his skin from brown to yellow even though plastic surgery to make his nose stub and his eyes squint and smaller like Fu Manchu was possible; but then what good would a brown looking man with squint eyes and a stub nose do, other than a comedy.
Occasionally the government would give some jobs to a few Indians or Malays but usually it is rare and uncommon.
As for the menial jobs, dishwashers, low ranking policemen, drivers and street sweepers, there are ample jobs for Malays and Indians, Lee's plan being to drive home the fact that they are losers in Lee's winning Chinese looking island.
Although these injustices and state sanctioned racial discrimination policies are illegal, complaining about it will do no good there. In
Without recourse to lawful redress for Malays and Indians, it is becoming increasingly common for them to vent their frustration through violence. You can see a disgruntled Malay citizen who has been refused government housing coming out and giving a good beating to the first Chinese looking person he sees. You can see an Indian who has just been fined the maximum of speeding, when Chinese are required to pay only a few dollars, coming out and beating up Chinese looking people.
This sort of racially motivated violence is going to increase and expectedly so. In countries which have laws in place to prevent this sort of injustice, citizens are content to avail themselves to the law which they can rely on and trust. In
