Say No To Race Based Politics

Some 90% of about 500 respondents believe that the abolition would result in greater social harmony and understanding among the various communities.

About 92% of the respondents agreed that “Malaysians are a colourful example of racial, cultural and religious tolerance, living peacefully in a social mosaic rich in diversity, and we should proactively preserve and treasure our common destiny.”

The poll on “Racial harmony in a balanced society” conducted by Kuching-based malaysiapollster recently.

BN race-based component parties should take some time to digest the results of the poll. They should embrace change or be changed in the next general election.

About 44% felt that racial harmony could best be achieved by getting rid of politicians who play the race card. Politicians such as Khir Toyo should take heed of this sentiment. He can continue to become a 'jaguh kampung' (race hero) in his own party but continue to be rejected by the voters.

SAY NO TO RACISM!

There was never any racial "problem" in this country. This is created by "we all know who" inorder to protect their seats, to help to protect their power so that they can/want to monopolise. Their so called "partners" allowed these idiots to do this to take care of their own interests. These people together with " we all know who they are" to rot in a place we call HELL. God's willing.

Totally agree with you. As a future generation of Malaysia, I don't accept these policies that are detrimental to both Malays and non-Malays. The Malays are drawn into the state of complacency while the non-Malays get brain drained. Result: Disaster for Malaysia

Sarawak (and also Sabah) were the beacons of non-communal politics before UMNO engineered coup de tats through Syed Kechik against Stephen Kalong Ningkan of Sarawak and Donald Stephens of Sabah. This ushered in racial politics of the UMNO type in both states (Sarawak from 1970. Since PBB took over in 1970, Sarawak slipped into racial politics until today the racial divisions here are as bad as in the Semenanjung with Malays and Melanaus in PBB in the position of UMNO and the Dayak and Chinese parties in the position of the MCA, Gerakan and MIC. Same thing for Sabah from 1991 with UMNO's entry there. From the survey, it is high time that racial politics of the UMNO brand be kicked out not only from Sarawak and Sabah, but also the peninsular eventually. Only then can we have a truly integrated Bangsa Malaysia, not UMNO's discrimintory bumis vs non-bumis in Peninsular and Muslim bumis vs non-Muslim bumis in East Malaysia.

308 has shown to us that UMNO was rejected by the RAKYAT. 5 States fell to the opposition. Keadilan, a multi-racial party was the best performer. From 1 parliament seat in 2004 to 31 parliament seats in 2008. An increase of 3,100%.This clearly shows the hegemony of a single race UMNO party cannot survive until the next GE in 2013.
The BANGSA MALAYSIA issue should be our next target.

Not too long ago people in Barisan led by people like Mukriz was saying that the reason for polarization existing in our country is because of the existence of vernacular schools!
It is clear to all now that the reason why there is polarization in the country i because of the existence of race based political parties! The have been forcing people to think of themselves as MAlays, CHinese, Indians, Bidayuhs, Dayaks, Iban etc. The moment we outlaw all these groups and such talk, polirization will die immediately. Lets try this now!

Hi Khoo,

It's amazing to see you are still having hope for BN or UMNO to change.Well I will have to respect your view.

To Anonymous 8.21pm,
I would advise you to look at things not only on the surface but beneath it as well.Like the adage"dont judge a book by the cover".Well I have been saying this to many in my circle for many years,but unfortunately most of them probably did not give it much thought, or some of them have resigned to the fact that,as a non-bumi,they have to accept whatever UMNO tells them and the component parties.
Frustrated,angry and dissapointed with such perception,I saw myself left alone when finally I took that decision which changed my life forever.Yes I decided to leave my beloved country Malaysia.On Feb 2007,just before I left,I told some of my acquaintances,if not 5 years but one day,this nation will disintegrate,never in my wildest thought did I imagine that hardly 9 months later,thousands of Malaysians in the form of Bersih and Hindraf will take to the streets of KL in desperation.Yes I must have been an idiot to leave my beloved country and contribute to a western nation,no?

Just a food for thought.Good luck.

I m very concern that 1 of the 3 jaguh becoming Youth Chief. The body odours are already very smelly, not to mention the stinking shits flowing out from the mouths.

Dear KKP,
If we were to leave race based politics, we need more smart & wise people to lead the way and formulate the blueprints to solve our most serious problems.

Saying that, are any of the polical parties courting you to join them?

sansiro said...

joenathan,

I am a bumi but like you i still decided to leave this country. Why?I think this country offers limited opportunity for average people like me who family doesnt have dato or datin to go with the family name. I bet your situation is much worst than mine but trust me, we are fundamentally the same:

we are talented but this country have the tendency to rewards who knows who, not who knows what.

All Malaysian are racist. Just consider the coming elections, the PRIMARY criteria to decide the candicate is to put the 'correct' RACE before examine their credential. Pakatan rakyat is as racist as BN just they are the less corrupted one. Anybody think is it possible they will field a Chinese or Orang Asli candidate at BT selambau by election, impossible! Pakatan said the candidate MUST be Indian. MIC said they must represent the BN. Both side are as racist as before.

People knows it, the world knows it..those who are oblivous, or pretend to be oblivous to it belong to a racist, self serving party called UMNO.
Apparently there was another gathering organised by BN Youth on Thursday to drum up support for the Royalty..How hypocritical can they get.
Let them die a slow and painful death..well aren't they are going thru it now

dear Khoo,
Only two things come to mind when one thinks of Malaysian politics today . . .
(1)Malaysia is = same like Zimbabwe's Mugabe . It is
ruled by gomen who does not want to let go at all costs, as seen by the dirty plays they are using to regain lost power (in Perak & Selangor).
(2) Malaysia gomen is actually practicing apartheid to a certain extent but doesn't admit it though the whole world knows about it.

After Karpal's incident in parliment, he has to hire bodyguard. I think all of us feel unsafe in this country now as UMNO Youth could attack anyone who they feel challenge in Malay right.

I urged all Malay friends that condemn this incident identify themselves as "Non UMNO Youth" on t shift or small badges in order for the public to feel save.
