in brief, why ed is not bothered with the ‘singapore’ presidential elections



comment, as posted on ‘sgpolitics : A Tan Jee Say presidency would benefit singapore’

ed:

Another chinaman.  No thank you.  What next? "Singapore is not ready for a non-Chinese president"?  All that this does is to further reinforce the self-absorption amongst the 'we are majority what!'  Before we say 'race shouldn't matter', we have to have a truly mutlicultural state.  If the latter is not true, the former just reinforces the notion, 'other races and cultures don't matter.  Not surprisingly, you don't realise that either.

postscript: by 'chinaman', i refer not to the chinese, but to those who do not deem anything besides as relevant. Hence, i paint them with one brush because they use nothing but calligraphic ones to appreciate reality.

Before we say 'race shouldn't matter', we have to have a truly mutlicultural state. If the latter is not true, the former just reinforces the notion, 'other races and cultures don't matter.  And in that, a 'Tan Jee Say' or any of the above presidency, benefits only those who've learnt to appreciate advantage as the right of the majority.
