Making audible what is unspoken

The leaders up north have a weird knack for rousing racial sentiments.
Previously they will say that the local malays (in singapore) are treated unfairly.
Recently one of them mentioned that chinese in malaysia are just immigrants and should not be given equal rights. I am not sure if he was speaking about the china chinese influx.
Mum was saying that maybe more malaysian chinese will migrate to singapore.
Doubt so.
There is this issue about foreign workers in our midst recently. Converting a school into a hostel. I would think that the bottom line is not about the big issue. It's the nitty gritty details that people cannot live with.
