et par l'action publique constante, notamment par les logements sociaux, les espaces en commun, les mesures anti discrimination, campagne publicitaire etc

To prevent our social media feeds and those of our friends from becoming echo chambers, we need to consciously look out for people with opinions different from our own to converse with them, and share articles or commentaries from a range of perspectives. We need to also be aware of accounts that spread fake news or cause hate, by those who seek to destabilise our society. Calling out the inaccuracies in these posts and having conversations with those who share them, helps protect the unity we enjoy as a society.

In 2011, curry became the hot topic among Singaporeans. The “curry incident” was sparked off when a Chinese family complained about the strong smell of curry coming from their Indian neighbour’s home.

With the help of the Community Mediation Centre (CMC), both families voluntarily eventually agreed to compromise: the Indian family would cook curry only when their Chinese neighbours were out of the house, and the Chinese neighbours would try their curry. The incident led to positive ground-up campaigns and reactions in support of the Indian family, such as the “Cook and Share a Pot of Curry” campaign. In contrast, negative actions such as uploading a video stereotyping mainland Chinese immigrants and mocking them simply leads to more unhappiness and does not help overcome misunderstandings nor resolve conflict.

But there have also been incidents involving race that can be resolved amiably. One such case involved local online influencer Sheena Phua, who came under fire in 2019 after she made an Instagram post that called two men wearing turbans “huge obstructions” to her view at the Singapore Grand Prix. Her comment was seen as mocking the Sikhs.

However, the Sikh community’s reaction was gracious. They invited her on an informal tour around Central Sikh Temple, where she got to learn about the culture. Besides issuing apologies, she also released photos of the tour and thanked the Sikh community for its kindness.

 

Quelles leçons tirés pour le libéralisme de cette expérience multiculturelle ?

J'aurais du le mettre tout de suite : 80% des singapouriens sont dans des logements sociaux où la mixité ethnique est de mise, alors que dans un système privé on peut penser que les gens se regrouperaient par communauté 🤔

J'ai à peu près autant confiance en ces témoignages gnangnan qu'en l'histoire des exploits de Stakanov.

 

Trop habitué à ce qui se passe en Europe ou au USA :D

L’organisation peut parfois être meilleure que l’ordre spontané. Même s’il faudrait quand même voir ce qui est gagné et ce qui est perdu.
