Okay...BN did not get 2/3rds. Good Luck on sharing power , guys. Parliament should be better now as there are more women so less likely to think with the "other" head hahahaahah
Honestly- am worried - hope there will not be any May 13th 1969 incident- unless waiting for May 13th 2009??
Read in international website, a comment about nonbumis feeling like outsiders or guests rather than citizens..
I guess that must be what "minority" ethnicities everywhere must feel , not just in Malaysia . In our neighbouring state recently, I so felt that I was a minority. I could not even find the kiblat in my 7 star hotel!!! (Ok that's Intercontinental ok) . I only saw Malays in stalls and dressed as students or makcik- where were the power suits oi?? In the UK there were racial riots and they only just started to get Indians etc in the government, We have had power sharing for 50 years ok.The USA is just considering having a black President.
What are they talking about - guests and outsiders indeed. No "guests" or "outsiders" get treated this well anywhere in the world, I believe. Benefits such as education, health, economy are shared by all, tak ke? Whatever privileges given to each race has been negotiated - see the "Social Contract". Do Malays gripe about not getting ever to handle Ministry of say, Works? Bargains have been made- promises also made and kept! Now will the Social Contract be amended?
Now that 5 states have gone to the opposition and Penang to a one race party- I am anxious that there will not be any discriminations by the ruling party. For all the rhetoric- show us that you do not favour your own race to others. Let me tell you that in any environment where one race outnumbers the other, it is HUMAN NATURE that that race favours its "own". There are discriminations done to Bumis too, I have heard. It happens ok. We cannot avoid it, just live with it lah. Take these incidents as isolated evidence of bigotry and try not to let it mar your otherwise good life.
To the foreign correspondents- Do you have any other idea on how to run a govt on such a tight rope - ethnic tension my foot- of course lah ada bodoh@! Show us in your country how "non natives" are treated- even though they are given citizenship? Say, inthe UK? Or, in the USA? And somemore can comment on "ethnic tension". PUHLEEEZ. Kan? Kan?
My point being, I think we live in a good country and I think every race has been given a slice of the pie. OF course things can only improve but to say that any race has been marginalised when there has been so much prosperity- is like so not fair.
Sigh....where is Malaysia going. How are we ever going to resolve this. The discontent is the loudest tu yang masalah nye. If I were Malaysia I'd take everyperson who makes that "guests" comment and shake them by the shoulder and tell them to just get it together and stop focusing on the negativity.
