Singaporeans from all walks of life, who come from various races such as Chinese, Malay, Indian and Others, are upset they have not been proportionately represented in state-endorsed public service advertisements.

This after locals spotted ads in MRT stations that serve to remind Singaporeans of the need to be alert to the risk of some hidden threat, which features four men who are clearly not Malay, Indian or Eurasian.

This has caused Singaporeans to feel that minorities have been yellowwashed again.

One local, Bu Gong Ping, said: “This does not bode well for racial harmony and equality”

“Worse, even when the Chinese act obscured, they are still so obviously, prominently Chinese.”

At press time, the advertisements island-wide are being touched up to include all the races, showing everyone in traditional garb acting shady as a way to respect all ethnic groups.

Men’s organisation, AMARE (Association of Men for Action and Reaction), is also lodging a complaint with the authorities saying women also have to be represented in the ads as well, so the ratio of women to men is 1:1.

This after locals spotted ads in MRT stations that serve to remind Singaporeans of the need to be alert to the risk of some hidden threat, which features four men who are clearly not Malay, Indian or Eurasian.

This has caused Singaporeans to feel that minorities have been whitewashed again.

“Worse, even when the Chinese act obscured, they are still so obviously, prominently Chinese.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life from various ethnic backgrounds are upset they have not been proportionately represented in state-endorsed public service advertisements.

This after locals spotted ads in MRT stations that serve to remind Singaporeans of the need to be alert to the risk of some threat, which features four men who are clearly not Malay, Indian or Eurasian.

This has caused Singaporeans to feel that minorities have been whitewashed again.

One local, Soh Bai Yers, said: “Singapore always like to showcase all the different races, right? How come now so racist, only showcase one race?”

“Worse, even when the Chinese act obscured, they are still so obviously, prominently Chinese.”

At press time, the authorities said they are working on touching up the advertisements island-wide to include all the races, showing everyone in traditional garb acting shady as a way to respect all ethnic groups.

Feminist organisation AWARE is also lodging a complaint with the authorities saying women also want to be represented in the ads as well, so the ratio of women to men is 1:1.
