Satu (Meaning: One in Malay)
It’s unfair. The way we non Bumipputera’s (Bumipputera: term is used to refer to a member of the majority malay race.) are treated. I do not want to be treated this way, I am angry, indignant and above all, disheartened. Though our country is considered not a “third world” country anymore; the govt. Still thinks like one. They have no intention of changing the status of people who have been born here; like myself, to be that of Bumiputeras. Just because of my race. It has always been about the race and evidently it Will always be about our races.
But I want it to change. I do not want to sit back and accept things the way they are. I CANNOT and I WILL not. So, like Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the Change.”
Here is where I am stuck.
I am of the opinion that:
Our government does not love our country.
Our people are messed up. Some welcome change; others, not at all. Some don’t even care. I have friends(not friends anymore) who have personally told me to shut up or not talk about religious rights in front of them (I tak kisah, *rolls his eyes*) because its irrelevant. – HELLO, if your rights were taken away, you’d be angry and ranting too.
Our economy is spiralling towards nothingness. Our pringgit value keeps dropping.
Our education is a laughing stock. We reverted back to teaching science and mathematics in malay, from teaching it in english!!
Our politicians love money when they should love the people. The 1MDB scandal.
yes, saya anak Mamlaysia.
‘Bersatu kita maju’ meaning, ‘Together we develop(advance/move forward)’ But pray, tell me, where is the bersatu? where is the 1+1+1=3? All i see it the 1+0+0=3.
We have a political slogan which goes, “1 Mamlaysia” but really they only acknowledge us other races when it’s to their advantage – hence, the 1+0+0=3 cause 3 is advantageous but having each race is not.
(Some details have been changed as, as Democratic as we claim to be- I might get arrested for these short paragraphs of personal opinion and free speech. But, if you recognise the veiled names, good on you)
Selamat berpuasa to all my Muslim friends! Hwaiting!!
