Othman Wok, a Singapore Malay horror story
I did some reading on this guy Othman Wok and I can't help but to conclude that he is the typical Malay lackey.
The only real talent that such a Malay posses is on how to excessively kiss asses and slandering others to promote himself.
Here is among the articles written about Othman Wok,
Othman Wok Seperti Anwar Ibrahim Gadai Identiti Bangsa
Veteran blogger and journalist Zainuddin Maidin in a post three years ago described Othman Wok as
ORANG PAP BERSEMBUNYI DI UTUSAN MELAYU
The Malay lackeys are the type of Melayu who reminds me of Malcom X's "house negroes and field negroes" theory.
If Othman Wok is an African American of Malcolm X era, then he would be a house negro.
A house negro loves his white master more than the white master loves himself.
As a reward, a house negro gets to live in the mansion to serve his master, wear better clothes than the field negroes who work on the cotton fields and eat better food too, whatever left eaten by his master.
Othman Wok fares better than that though, he got to be a minister (though the portfolio was not so great), and became board of directors member of several companies after retiring from politics.
I actually know quite a number of Malays like Othman Wok.
They make a living by kissing the ass of their non-Malay bosses and going out of their way to run down other Malays to please their non-Malay masters.
Ini jenis manusia yang orang Melayu kata tak ada maruah dan khianat, atau dalam bahasa kasarnya barua.
