"Racist countries are those with intended policy by majority to suppress minority and this is what UMNO has always been an expert in this label. December 28, 2011 9:46 AM"
I started this new posting with a quote above, made by one of the many anonymous people commenting in my blog. In this trying times, comments in cyberspace are most likely made by the "enemies of the state" so to speak.
There are no racist countries in the world, but the majority of the countries in the world do practice ethnocentrism in favour of the majority when running or controlling a country.
Last year I was in Uruguay. I found out the Spanish came to conquer the land and to do that effectively and successfully they had to decimate the entire population of the aboriginal or native people of the land.
Today in this country, you cannot find a single native person not in the city, nor, for that matter, in the entire country. Asked any government official there about this, and they will feel the shame and their interaction with you on the subject will be filled with guilt. But it is too late!
Even in a great country like the USA, if we are open minded and smart enough to accept it, many of the government policies are based on the feelings of the majority of the White Anglo Saxon Protestants (WASP) so their values still dominate that great country.
Well, yes, USA may have a black president now, but being a black president in the turbulent sea of WASPy values, even Obama has admitted being a black president in a white dominated country is a tremendous chore.
Our opposition here, DAP mainly, uses Singapore as a good example of how minority Malays are being treated well. Well, we also feed our captive pets when we feel like it, every two days or three?
Australia mistreats its aboriginal people, but our opposition parties hardly ever condemn this country which once boasted its openly White Policy only on immigration. Well guess what, I was told the open White Policy is now not "practised" anymore.
Do you see minority non-Malays being persecuted in this majority Malay-Muslim society and government? Well if you do, have your head checked, or have an open mind and check the demographic make-up of Kuala Lumpur and all the major towns in Malaysia, and guess what they are all owned and inhabited by the mainly "persecuted and supressed" Chinese population.
So I am not sure how some one can ever surmise that Malaysian majority Malays are suppressing minority Chinese of Indians and others.
So in the end Malaysia, like any other one-race dominated system, can only have policies that are deemed to be seen made only for the majority-centric society, when others are also being looked after.
Unlike when Kuomintang, under Chiang Kai Shek, fled to nearby island of Formosa (now Taiwan) after being kicked out by Communist Mao Tse Tong, Chiang Kai Shek ordered the decimation of the original inhabitants.
The horror of ethnic cleansing inflicted by the Kuomintang on the original inhabitants of this island has long been suppressed. Today these original people of Taiwan, who have a similar linguistic grouping to the Malay group, read here, now live in the mountains and only perform for tourism.
Meanwhile, in this country while we welcomed other races to share our land, they are now bold enough to ask for the rights to also become paramount rulers and the prime minister.
They are also bold enough to want to change the constitution of the country to suit them, the minority! Guess what, I call these people a bunch of Kiasu Ingrate!
