Still in Kuantan. Today I got this message to tell.
Do not ever try to defend anything Malay these days. It's very unfashionable to do so.
Worst, you will end up being accused of being a racist. Well, I kena already liao.
If you are an elderly woman, and you speak about Malays being discriminated, you will most likely be labelled as a racist grandmother.
Really, that's what a chief minister said. You can read about it here
But it's okay to defend things such as Chinese schools or Chinese heritage buildings or other Chinese these and that.
"Why the local council only tore down the Malay stalls and not the Chinese restaurants?" : That's racist.
"Why the government only give money to Malay (actually national) schools and not to Chinese (actually private) schools?" : That's not racist.
Why is that so?
Because the Malays are the majority who bully the Chinese all the time. That's what they will tell you.
Really, if you don't believe that, just go around and find out how badly bullied are the Chinese in this country.
They are the worst off among the ethnic groups of Malaysia. Really, they are so oppressed, okay.
That's why they have every right to shout racist at their Malay oppressors.
Of course they can't shout "Melayu racist!", that would make them racists too. So, they instead shout "Umno racist!"
That's what Lim Guan Eng did when he called that State opposition leader, who is an elderly Malay woman a racist grandmother.
Yes, now you know how to get away with throwing around the Melayu Rasis label without being accused back of being a racist.
This tactic had worked well, in fact even some Malays are beginning to believe it.
A friend who is now a hardcore Pas supporter completely believes this logic of calling her fellow Malays as racists whenever they talk about defending their rights as Malays.
Anyone who tried to reason with her on the need to preserve the Malays' interests would get this from her,
RACIST! RACIST! RACIST!
Really, she wrote that on her Facebook wall to postings by friends on Malay issues.
Well, the irony was that, being educated at ITM, now UiTM, I believe she would not get to have her tertiary education if not for her being a Malay. After all, she only got second grade for her SPM.
