We Should Stop Questioning Their Special Rights
If you are in their shoes, will you treat a minority whose population only make up 18% of the total population fairly? If you wont, then don't blame them for not doing so. It's human nature.
This dude is rather silly~ questioning what's already written clearly and agreed upon by our forefathers.
It has been agreed 53 years ago. We were given the citizenship, and we acknowledged the special rights of the Malays. So Malaysia was born. Full Stop.
So as Malaysian, we already knew that we are full-fledged citizens, and the bumis have special rights in applying loan, scholarship, etc etc. Ruling party or opposition, whoever talks about issue that's already written in the constitution is wrong and should be prosecuted.
That's the rule of the game~
So why is he questioning about
whenever you go to government sector and ask for tender, they'll say you have to be a bumiputra; why chinese students get 12A 13A also cannot get JPA
Well I tell you what, it's already written in the constitution that the bumis shall have special rights and they shall be given the opportunity. And so until then, you shut up, and if you don't understand please go back to primary school and revise your history.
It's sad but true, because it is a form of legalized discrimination.
But the thing is, it has been agreed upon and 53 years had passed so are you going to continue living a pessimistic life knowing that you're living in a country that practises legalized discrimination?
Well I'd like to see that as mutual cooperation, because with that we are given the right to vote and voice out our opinion. Though not all of them reaches those who really matters.
Even if you don't agree to that, it's already too late because the decision was made by our forefathers Tun H.S.Lee and frens.
Politicians should never say things like why should everything be given to them?
Let's look at this issue from Malays' point of view.
Let's face it, they are not as aggressive as Chinese when it comes to arguing. We Chinese won't give up something easily, especially when we're provoked. If you're working in the banking industry, or as a lawyer, or even as a waiter, I'm sure you would agree that Malay customers are generally easier to serve than Chinese customers. Islam teaches the Malays to be moderate, and they adhere to the teachings of the Quran. They rarely make sarcastic remarks, probably because of their 500-year old civilization. Our Chinese civilization is ten times longer, and we've had more wars and tough times, and the never-say-no trait has been passed down to us.
If there is nothing to stop us from taking control over the land, the Malays would one day be displaced from Malaysia. The fact that they need the protection from the constitution shows that they acknowledge our capability to thrive even in difficult situation. Our ancestors came from China and now we're a force to be reckoned with. Datuk Lee Chong Wei is the only non-Chinese(citizenship) player that can alter the Chinese dominance in badminton. Datuk Nicole Ann David, the current world number 1 in women's squash, is a Chindian.
I agree with the constitution to grant special rights to the Malays, but I ain't happy with some benighted faggots asking us to get back to China. And at the same time I'm baffled why university students and especially politicians, who are supposed to understand more about our history, keep on revolving around the special rights issue.
We are the minority, so act like one. We should be grateful that we are not treated like those in Italy and United States. We have holidays for Wesak Day, Chinese New Year, etc etc, should we not be grateful? Though there are not many of us who obtain the JPA, but at least there are some who did. 70% quota for Malays, 30% for Chinese and Indian. It's fair to me, because we only make up 18% of the population of this country.
The opposition would probably argue that we get holidays because of their complaints, but it's not true. If you look at the constitution we do have right as Chinese to celebrate our cultural new year, it's already guaranteed in the constitution.
Some people once said Malaysia is the most racist of countries in the world. I'm sure he hasn't read a lot because had he been reading the news he would know how Asians kids are stuffed into lockers in schools and bullied in the U.S.
Racial discrimination is a crime in U.S, but the whites are calling blacks by the N word and Asian American by the C word openly. Asian kids are being bullied and left out. But the reverse is happening in Malaysia. We may not be comfortable with another race but we don't hear people calling us by certain derogatory words openly. And at least racial bullying in school is rare. Very rare.
In Italy Asians are discriminated openly, and in British Isles Asians are only famous for martial arts.
There was this case; a fren of mine who got to study in England. Her housemates were all Britons. They didn't allow her to use to toilet in the house, so she has to wait until she arrived at the school and used the school toilet instead.
Another friend ventured to New York and updated on his Facebook "racially discriminated as an Asian", while his friend commented "Still better than Sydney/Melbourne."
We as university students should not be fooled by the nonsense politicians say. Their appeal will only exacerbate money politics, and at the same time we are complaining about money politics in Malaysia, oblivious to the fact that it's us that had kept it alive.
Yes I agree that our government has its weaknesses, every government does. And we are complaining all the time; delay in this and that, waiting for this and that, protocol this and that. But whenever we are caught by the polis what comes to our mind? Whenever we are tired of waiting, what comes to our mind?
We're the one keeping it alive when we should have fixed it.
You complain about delay? Wait til you go Italy. Their front desk attitude is utterly horrendous. When I was there, they were unbelievably slow, to the extend I couldn't believe it's Italy.
Some factions of idiots call us "pendatang", then it's our right to complain because they doesn't acknowledge what's written in the Constitution. But if we question about their rights, then it's us that's supposed to end up in jail.
We should never vote for a politician who incites racial hatred.
Help us in other way. Not racial issue please. Some complaints are sensible; eg delay in building/fixing some problem, safety issue, etc etc. As for the scholarship problem, while we Chinese complaint, there are also Malays who got good results that didn't get to have scholarship. When you think about yourself, think about them.
We always highlight our predicament, who highlight theirs?
