Singapore model of multi racial society not perfect
Many countries today are multi racial in composition, from the US in the west to the Philippines in the east, from China in the north to Australia in the South. The racial mix differs from country to country with some with the majority veering towards near absolute but not many are about evenly split. The latter is likely to see unending bickering for power, like a two party system.
There are absolute majority countries with the majority taking advantage of the minorities and discriminating against them in a whole range of social, economic and political matters. There are also instances of a minority discriminating against the majority when they own the gun, like in South Africa during days of apartheid and in the Middle East.
In general, it is always the majority taking advantage of the minorities and forcing their wills on them. Singapore has an absolute Chinese majority and it is one of the exception where discrimination against the minorities is the least and often have to bend backwards to accommodate the interests of the minorities. The minorities are still unhappy for some of the discrimination they are experiencing, though not life threatening or overt oppression. It is still far from being ideal, far from being good, but still one of the best in the world as far as ethnic relations and living together as a country of many races. There are still pockets of hardcore individuals that would be very racial in their thinking and behavior, but not as a group behavior.
Would Singapore be better off with a more even distribution in its racial composition? Or would it be better if there is an absolute Malay majority in power, or an absolute Indian majority in power? Theoretically every group will think it will be better if their racial group is in power and they would or could be more generous, merciful and magnanimous to the minorities. Would that be the natural outcome? What do you think?
