"So Singaporean" EXACTLY.

But so many want to become Singaporeans, so perplexing isn't it??

For me, I m proudly Singaporean and won't forsake or give up on my motherland for the sake of PINK IC.

You should be proud of where you are from don't be a 'Quitter' people will respect you more.


vadais are yummy, you should try it sometime too and please you are getting to this point where you are starting to sound foolish.

Derogatory,insulting? you should view some of the anti-Singaporeans sentiments of the web.But we don't go whinging and crying to their Gov.like babies.We too thick skinned lah.

i.e Singaporeans barred form entering Batam for "Talking Singlish too loud".

Expulsion from Malaysia was on the 9th of August 1965, which is 49 years ago. Before that you were not Singaporeans but Malays living in the south of Malaysia.

Why would you want to go to Batam if Singapore is so wonderful?

I just could not help but laugh at what Blade had written below. But I am in total agreement with him. Have to thank LKY and the his ministers of yesteryears for what he's done for Singapore. Not the Brits.

This is the stuff you guys are fed?

What was it before then ? a Banana plantation?

:shock:

Oh, don't get your knickers all knotted up we love the Ukraine and Pinoy [Spanish half ancestry type] girls at Girly bars.More should come! ha ha..

"However, I wonder what it is that Blade thinks the original Singaporeans, a combination of Malay and Chinese, actually built. Not Marina Bay, methinks, nor the houses of parliament"

We built the SINGAPORE BRAND.It's not something physical like the grotesque MBS or Gardens by the Bay..GET IT?

I'm currently reading the Facebook page and comments from TRE on this very topic. The level of hate is quite mind blowing and something I'm truly not used to seeing expressed so openly in public!

People appear to be very comfortable making such outrageous remarks about others and the mob mentality is frightening. :shock: :shock:

Someone on my Facebook timeline had allegedly found her profile, and I researched more about her. Turns out, she might be the person behind the racist blog. I reported her to racistreport.org:

Let's all not kid ourselves that Singapore should remain neutral. If anything there's more racism in the US and Europe than there is here in Singapore. It's good that there's even an outlet for the public to make a complain about racists and the remarks they make. I bet there's not even such an agency / body / outlet in the US / Europe where racists can be reported. If anything it's very blatantly obvious with all these right-wing parties in Europe and racist policies that they have with regards to immigrants arriving into their country.

You're kidding!

This is the most racist place I've lived. Japan was pretty much that way too, but here it's really in your face.

I mean come on. They have race quotas in housing blocks. One's race is on your IC card. They have national racial quotas/targets. And so on. There is so much casual reference to ang mos, 'foreign workers', Banglas, Pinays, Cinas, Foreign Talent, Foreign Trash. It is just about every day. I have never known this in any other country.

You know that in the EU/US workplace if you so much as make reference to someone's race, you are inviting getting sacked. And yet, you say US/Europe is racist! lol!!

@yogaloungeforever: JR8 is right, you know. The US/Europe do not institutionalize racism. Having racist citizens (and ultra right wing politicians), on the other hand, is a different story.

The only place more racist that I could think of is UAE.

I remembered back to the days during the milk-rounds at university and they would give you an application form to fill up. There was a section that was considered most of the time a compulsory section to be completed and contained amongst other entries, the ethnicity of the applicant and if the person was of asian or african origin and if asian or african ethnicity which asian or african ethnicity was this person (chinese, japanese, korean, jamaican, afro-caribean, etc) was this applicant, was the person a mixed and of which mixed ethnicity was this applicant and to select or list out accordingly. For reason not known to me the caucasian ethnicity is almost never asked for a further listing of the applicant's ethnicity (like germanic, anglo-saxon, etc).

As for the race quotas mentioned below it would help to understand from history of Malaya as to why this has always been in place.

Yes, Singapore is a socially stratified nation.But to understand why you really have to know the history of the communal race riots of the 50 & 60s. If you have no reference point then you should just sit down and shut up.

DO you know why we don't allow RACIAL ENCLAVES in any housing estate?
No? go find out then I will explain more.

Quote:"Singapore is the most racist place" ? well that depends alot on what you yourself are? North Indian? you go in this box,AMDK? you go in this box..Pinoy? go in the box..etc.

But,but everyone is guilty of the same thing right?
