which I think is a good read for those who want to understand how Malays and Bumiputera experience racial discrimination in this country.
Yes, it's not just the Chinese who can claim of being discriminated because of their skin color.
Sometimes, I find it weird that the liberal urbanite Malays can't see such things.
Just consider this, of all those smart and savvy Malay journalists in MCA-owned but pro-DAP, The Star newspaper, none of them had ever managed to be an editor with real decision making authority.
And there you have all those liberal urbanite Malays given the space to write in The Star about how we are all Malaysians and being a Malay is not that important anymore or even a racist thing to do.
Yes, this is the same newspaper that gave prominence to MCA's CC member Datuk Ti Liang Ker's "gentle reminder" on Monday for Umno to mind their language in the party's coming general assembly.
Okay, go and ask the so-called Malays such as Anas Zubedy who is a great fan of The Star what does he know about "jati diri Melayu".
Ask him whether being a Malaysian first means he supports single stream schools for Malaysian students instead of the current multiple school systems. Tell him to write and put it on record at The Star.
Yes, let's see whether it get published by all those powerful Chinese and Indian editors in The Star.
It will be interesting to know what people like Marina Mahathir, Azmi Sharom and Anas Zubedy think of the Chinese vernacular schools.
Anyway, the Umno general assembly is drawing near.
I believe it's a make or break for the party.
If it fails at the assembly to convince the Malays that it is helping them instead of just helping themselves, then I believe the party is doomed.
If Umno choose to be as liberal as Anas Zubedy, then I believe the party is doomed.
If the more educated Umno people still choose to read The Star over anything else, then I believe the party is doomed.
Sometimes I wish Malays still look, talk and behave like this,
