SAP Schools and "Discrimination"

Two wrongs don't make a right, but they can be less wrong than one wrong.

For example, many people condemn SAP schools in Singapore as discrimination against the non-Chinese (i.e. "minorities").

Yet, the Special Assistance Plan arose from the Singaporean government's smashing of the Chinese school system.

With this proper understanding of historical context, one can see that SAP schools are just a token sop offered to the Chinese community to make them slightly less pissed off, and that far from being a sign of strength or privilege, SAP schools are paradoxically a symbol of defeat, weakness or marginalisation.
