on 'Responsible' Discussions on Race and Religion

I would say that the 'irresponsible' value of discussions on race and religious issues is significantly dependent on the degree to which we have undertaken the responsibility of eradicating discrimination. Upon the creation of victims of discrimination, I dare say that it is highly arrogant of us to dictate the tone their ire ought to take. Of course, violence ought to be strongly discouraged, but this ought to be in tandem with everything being done to eradicate said discrimination. I'm for prevention, not 'cure' after and despite the fact as that’s just another way of getting people accustomed to their relative ethnically-ordered status.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

ed racially harassed by police at Changi Airport

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
