Race is not biological, but a social construct.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who know for a fact that race is not biological but a social construct, have come out to applaud former presidential candidate Tan Cheng Bock.

This after they said he must be able to qualify for the 2017 presidential election in Singapore reserved for Malays once he changes his race.

One Singaporean, Tng Lang, said: “Race is a fluid concept and not rooted in biology. There is no gene or cluster of genes common to black, white, brown or yellow people. A person considered black in one country or brown in another, might just be beige.”

“How one perceives one’s race can shift with time and location.”

“It can be prescribed, but there is no basis for it to be deterministic.”

Other locals said for society to determine the race of an individual or group of people so that they can be pigeonholed into a given role, is for that society to be stuck in stasis, which goes against the tenets of development.

Another local, Hua Ren, said: “How can society insist on the rigidity of race?”

“This is an outdated, deterministic view of how society operates.”

At press time, Singaporeans can be whatever they want to be unless specifically told not to.

Loophole in Elected Presidency criteria found.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, from all races and religions, are clapping their hands and praising their respective gods.

This after Tan Cheng Bock got adopted by a Malay family, effectively throwing wide open the race to the next Elected Presidency in Singapore.

One Singaporean, Fu Mu Qing, said: “As the next Elected Presidency due this year is reserved for a Malay candidate, this turn of events has thrown up a viable candidate at long last.”

“It is too late for Parliament to pass any laws to patch this loophole now.”

“Looking forward to another President Tan in office.”

However, other Singaporeans are sceptical this move will be considered acceptable by locals by and large.

Another local, Yin Leow, said: “I have my doubts as to whether another President Tan is palatable and Singaporeans of all races can handle it.”

“Because in our minds, the only person who can be our president and prime minister is still Tharman Shanmugaratnam.”

At press time, thousands upon thousands of Chinese families in Singapore are looking into adopting Tharman.

MRT reserved seats for Malays as part of Elected Presidency changes

It is only fair.

Reserved seats in MRT train carriages will soon be set aside for members of the Malay community.

This follows on the heels of news that Singapore has amended its Presidential Elections Act to reserve the next president seat for a Malay candidate.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in the tenets of meritocracy but are unable to speak out when their beliefs are trampled upon, said they are heartened such measures are being taken.

Ma Lai Ren, a Singaporean minority, said: “It is only fair that the MRT reserved seats are set aside for Malays, as this is in line with the changes in the Elected Presidency.”

“If there are no trickle-down effects in wider society stemming from having a Malay president, Singaporeans wouldn’t feel the benefits of having a minority president.”

“They would think this is no different from having a majority, symbolic figurehead president.”

Other locals said there is no point in Singaporeans being overly-critical and analysing the shortcomings of such a change in provisions that allow a Malay candidate a better chance.

Another local, Tng Lang, said: “By the time it has come to this point where the policy is being rolled out publicly and people in Singapore are informed, it is too late.”

“To stop this from even happening in the first place, we need to go back several months in time to halt the proceedings from the corridors of power that are cut off from the ordinary citizenry.”

“Which means there was and is no way of stopping this from happening.”

At press time, reserved seats in public buses must also be reserved for members of the Malay community.

Murali to teach Elected Presidency Malay candidate how to win by having 4 names

Murali, Mur Ali, Mura Lee and Michael Paul.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in relying on strategic decisions to get ahead in life, are urging Murali to teach the Malay candidate for the upcoming Elected Presidency how to win.

This after the PAP MP won the Bukit Batok by-election convincingly in May 2016 against a straight Chinese man.

One Singaporean, Mi Mee, said: “The secret to Murali’s electoral success was that he utilised four names to appeal to the four races in Singapore.”

“To reach the Chinese, he called himself ‘Mura Lee‘. To reach the Malays, he called himself ‘Mur Ali‘. To reach the Others, he called himself ‘Michael Paul‘.”

“To reach his own community, he remained as ‘Murali’.”

Other locals said this bodes well for the upcoming Elected Presidency in Singapore.

Another local, Ma Lai Ren, said: “Being a minority is no barrier to winning the popular vote.”

“Murali’s victory shows that either he is a sorcerer or Singaporeans are not racist.”
