Dear The Real Singapore, I am a 50+ years old Singaporean.

People of Chinese descent make up 70% of the population of Singapore. Singapore Chinese, as they are termed, enjoy systemic, racialized and institutional privilege in the country as opposed to the countries' minorities (primarily racialized as Indian and Malay). "Chinese privilege", as Sangeetha Thanapal has named it, functions very similarly to white privilege in the United States and Europe. To use Peggy McClintock's notion of white privilege and the invisible knapsack, Chinese privilege functions like an "invisible package of an invisible package of unearned assets which I can count on cashing in each day, but about which I was ‘meant’ to remain oblivious. [Chinese] privilege is like an invisible weightless backpack of special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, clothes, tools and blank checks."
