They have legitimate grouses and Samy and MIC have failed them, I am sorry!
We have a helper for the last five years and her name is Nalitha and she is a Tamil from Teluk Anson, and if I say she is like a family to us, I may sound like a condescending liberal prick to a lot of you racist bastards, but no she is more than a family to us she is a permanent member of our exclusive family club, membership by marriage or invitation only!
I asked her did she go to the Hindraf rally and she answered yes! I was shocked she could have been arrested or hurt! She was there with her daughter and husband. When I asked why did she do it, and she said her people have no jobs when foreigners are taking over the country.
She said, in direct translation to Bahasa Malaysia : "How come Bangladeshi, Myanmarese, Vietnamese and Indonesian can have a better paying jobs than us Malaysian. Now you get on a bus you see these people no more Malaysians. May daughter was teased by a Myanmarese on the bus the other day, how can they do this and yet they come to this country and not respect us?"
You see Nalitha, is not the most literate person I have ever known but she is by far not stupid like the rest of those who rallied and protested the other day. She is a person that our family will die for not because she is our helper. but she is also our soul mate. And not much that can be said about the MIC or Samy Vellu who did not foresee the displacement of Indians from their "green dimension" or hundreds of thousands of rubber estate in the country that have been shaved and converted to either housing estates, industrial areas or being converted to palm oil estates.
I was told, and I believe my friend who said this, that the majority or most of those who rallied and protested were BN supporters, and they were venting out their anger over empty promises made by their community leaders.
The displacement of hundred of thousands Indians from rubber estates around the country should have been anticipated and contingency plans should have been made to ensure these sector of society be looked after, and we and did not and Samy did not, and MIC is to be blamed for not looking after its community!
If they had been looked after. such "exploitative racially motivated" rally would not have occurred!
