Some have criticised policies saying they make us more race conscious. SAP schools have often been cited in this regard. But we also have Madrasahs, and a huge variety of Chinese, Malay and Indian cultural organisations. "Should all this be done away with on the grounds they are not inclusive of other races, other languages, other cultures, other traditions? Obviously not, for that is not what our commitment to 'one people, regardless of race, language or religion' entails," Mr Wong said.
Our multiracialism preserves, protects and celebrates our diversity. Being Singaporean is a matter of addition, not becoming less.
