Barisan Nasional is racist! UMNO, MCA, MIC are all racist bigots!!!
I guess that what is normally heard for the past few years. In a way, those kind of statement are due to the member of Barisan Nasional coalition are majority and largely made of race based party. The three main – UMNO to take care of the Malays and Bumiputera; MCA taking care of chinese matters and MIC on indian matters. Is it racist if one to concern of his/her own race?
Before we go any further..what is the definition of racist in the first place? Racist, according to thefreedictionary.com is defined as a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others.
If someone is concern about his/her own race development and achievement, does it made him/her a racist? I don’t think so, unless the concern or remarks he/she made belittled other race. For example the word “nigger” if it is said to certain people, you will get beaten as nigger is an offensive slang.
So, are most of us in Malaysian really understand the use of the word “racist”? Do most of us use it in a right condition? I let you to think, and perhaps you can share your thoughts here (with the exact wordings, so that I can understand where do you come from).
OK, back to the topic.
Barisan Nasional is a coalition based on few race based party which one of their main objective is to take care the welfare of their own race, without jeopardising the unity of the nation. In another point of view is, each of the party member also has a task to look after their race/ethnic’s concern and development. It is organised in a such a way, and focused. I guess, that’s the Barisan Nasional way of doing things and it is their system.
How about Pakatan Rakyat? What are they made of?
We have DAP, who claimed they are not racist based party, a party for all Malaysians. Recent development and the news they throw in the limelight shows that they are getting members from Malay (in which, I don’t understand the need if really they are not dominantly controlled by a single race). The news they shout out to show they are not racist as one accused them of. But hey, the malays/bumiputeras who joined them are merely members and not leader rank type. If they are, they should be also in the leadership hierarchy. Oh well, we’ll see how they are going about this, especially when the date of GE13 is announced.
We also have Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), who also claimed they are a party for all Malaysians. Hmm.. okay, another party claimed for all Malaysians. So, two parties for all Malaysians in a single coalition? Hmm.. what are their differences? Can you tell me?
Another giant and important party in Pakatan Rakyat – PAS, which a party known their purpose is for Islam. Since Islam is not limited by a single race, technically, they are also a party for all Malaysians… but can a non-muslim be part of the party? If yes, what happened to all the accusations to UMNO saying working with kafir makes them a kafir too? Can someone explain?
In an overview, Barisan Nasional is made of race based parties, working towards to the unity of all. As for Pakatan Rakyat, they are made of parties for all (with one additional clause – Islamic based), working for all, but each of them having different intrepretations and directions.
Maybe I am wrong how Pakatan Rakyat is made of and how they work… can someone tell me? I am very much confused!!!
Question on the street: How long the Pakatan Rakyat agree to disagree can last? If they are to rule Malaysia, they need to agree on the foundation. If not, it will chaotic once broken.
