Enclaves and self segregation are reasons for the presence of other cultures in one nation. Stomp those and generally the minority assimilates into the majority overtime forming a monolithic culture.

If there is no government ban on aboriginal culture (like there was in the past) would the reverse also not happen as well? from what I heard chinese singaporeans consider themself singaporeans first, then chinese second, even though they are the majority. and isn't Singaporean cuisine diverse and contain elements derived from several ethnic groups even with the housing quota thing?

Not sure what your first question is about nor do I know of Singapore's creation so I wouldn't be able to answer it.

Not sure I don't have the data to claim either nor or on that one I do know that there is a will to preserve the Chinese identity amongst the younger generation. The prevalence of Mandarin speaking at home has increased. Also I see people reference food as its the only aspect of culture where as its actually a very small part of culture.

In the first question I made a reference to how the Canadian government had banned Aboriginal/Native American culture, but the question itself was about the possibility of the majority adopting elements of the minority as well

just because they are born multicultural, it's sort of taboo still in Japan that if you're not born or look full Japanese you're not Japanese, but feel free to pay taxes and be a citizen, doesn't mean you're accepted. so, they might want to give up on that taboo theory. and if they stop allowing the marriage of objects (pillows, video game characters, robots), there might be a better chance of having more official Asian looking than adding in other cultures. not to sound racist, but if you want to keep your race pure you have to kick out the idiots.

Absolutely disgusting. I would never think of describing my grandparents culture in such a manner.


I thought the same thing. Their speech is dripping with denigration and they don't even see how hypocritical they are. If you described Chinese culture as fortune cookie and chop-socky movie culture they'd meet you with the most blazing condemnation. But America or other Western nations(white-ish ones, anyway)? Nope. They don't even flinch. The bigotry just falls right out.

Well, fortune cookies and chop-suey are part of American culture moreso than China; tell a French person they have french fry culture and see how that goes. But for someone so concerned with oikophobes, you're awful quick to take offense to distinctly American foods. But hey, if you just want to avoid the fact that the US is not anything resembling a monoculture, by all means avoid addressing it with outrage over nothing.
