Following the practice of the predominantly ethnic Chinese race, the original inhabitants of the island, the Malays, because of the lack of freedom, the rule of law and employment opportunities have themselves reduced their family sizes which in the past were much bigger.
Their population, just like that of the Chinese is also shrinking but at a slower rate, but the difference in their case is this; Lee has no intention whatsoever of bringing in any Malays from outside. This would mean of course that the Malay population would continue shrinking and eventually disappear.
As for the Indians, they are in the same boat as the Malays. Lee has no plans for them, except that he hopes they would like the Malays, sooner than later disappear for his island entirely.
The ethnic Chinese population on the other hand would at least hold steady, if not continue growing with the daily plane loads of peasants he brings in from
In fact, to get a place in
Lee Kuan Yew racist policies are very clear. He wants a Chinese Singapore, not a multi racial
And his plan to keep the Malays and Indians at the bottom of the social and economic ladder is very clear. Already today you find almost everyone in the lowest ranks of the police force Malay.
Why because they usually have the least education among the other citizens, thereby making them perfect individuals who would blindly obey orders, just the sort of mindless people you need to go around arresting any political opponent, Lee orders to put away.
Anyone who thinks the Malays and Indians have themselves to blame for being at the bottom of Lee Kuan Yew's rung has completely missed the point. Their low economic and social status is precisely because Lee wants them there. And this is very easily accomplished in his one part police state.
Every teacher in any school is ordered to deliberately give low grades to any Malay or Indian child as opposed to an ethnic Chinese. The result of this of course is that Malays and Indians continue to fail their exams in school while the ethnic Chinese are given the best grades regardless of their performances. The weakness of the Malays and Indian children in
As a result, you have this huge numbers, vastly disproportionate to their size, of Malay and Indian children who drop out from school. And this is exactly what Lee needs. You need mindless dummies who will take any orders from the top to run around like dogs to do Lee's dirty work beating up his political opponents, and locking them away. Anyone with some brains would not be so willing for this of work, which is why the under educated and unskilled Malays and Indians neatly fill Lee's plans.
On rare occasions you find one among many Malay students who do well in school and even more uncommonly would get a scholarship. Don’t be fooled here. That was no ordinary Malay. He is very probably the son of a PAP (Lee's party) member and trusted supporter which makes this boy a safe bet for the Lees. Also he could periodically defend himself against the charge that he is racially discriminating against them, by pointing to this one Malay boy who has done well.
Today you see the Malays doing every single menial work in the island you can imagine. They are low ranking minimum wage policemen, motorcycle messengers, office tea boys, road sweepers and errand boys. The average Indian is a security guard, and does similar work that these Malays do.
The Lee Ruling Family has no plans to advance the status of the Malays and Indians who are a fast shrinking and soon disappearing minority in Lee's ethnic Chinese island one party police city state. As far as Lee is concerned, the Malays and Indians can either take it or leave it. He is not bothered either way.
