Why our dear ministers never come out and speak out against racism when the Hwa Chong lady went out on a racism rampage? Selective? Despicable act that mustn't go unbothered. Attacking a middle aged woman is an act of cowardice. Try that on me and I would break your legs and send it to your parents. Funny because we all know there’s discrimination against certain races in government and political settings. It starts from the core.
'It goes against everything that our multiracial society stands for, and the mutual respect and racial harmony that we hold so dear.' Yeahhhhh..........but also: 'Older generation of S'poreans not ready for non-Chinese PM' 🤡 No place for racism in Singapore. This incident must be dealt with severely with no compromise.
