Race based politics exists all around the world

Racism world-wide is manifested in every continent. In Europe, extreme racist groups have gained more and more acceptability in countries like France, Germany, and Austria. In Australia, the Aborigines have lost much of their land and have been the victim of extreme prejudice. Not only has Apartheid -- legalized separation -- been practiced in Australia, it has been a well-publicized condition in South Africa. Many African countries have endured long-term civil wars, some beginning shortly after that nation’s freedom from former colonial countries. In the Middle East, antagonism between the Israelis and the Palestinians continues to exist.

The United Nations passed Resolution 3379 on November 10, 1975, stating that "Zionism is a form of racism and discrimination."

We need to go beyond race-based politics. If you continue to harp and support this racial equation, you will never be able to overcome racial divisions.
-Anwar Ibrahim, Former Deputy Prime Minister

Race based politics is the ugly truth that is happening all around the world. You can try to deny its existence but it is there. It is still rampage even in America.

Every political party in Malaysia is based on the race. So how can you propogate of being free from race based politics? For instance, let us take a look at MCA. It is the acronym for the MALAYSIAN CHINESE ASSOCIATION. What about the MIC? It stands for MALAYSIAN INDIAN CONGRESS.

Gerakan or PARTI GERAKAN RAKYAT MALAYSIA members are mostly Chinese even though it claims to be multi racial. SUPP stands for SARAWAK UNITED PEOPLE'S PARTY. DAP which is the DEMOCRATIC ACTION PARTY claims itself to be a multi racial party, but the people holding the highest posts in DAP are the Chinese.

Lim Kit Siang is the National Chairman of the Democratic Action Party. His son, Lim Guan Eng is the Democratic Action Party 5th Secretary General. If we look at the leadership of DAP for the national level, the party is being dominated by the Chinese and Indian with the exception of 2 Malays out of the total of 31, 24 are Chinese, 2 Singhs and 3 Indians.

DAP lately had been promoting Middle Malaysia. Middle Malaysia is not different at all from the objectives of the ultra kiasu party. Look at the explanation of what Middle Malaysia and the objectives of DAP as what I had put below. Middle Malaysia is just a new name of the objectives of the DAP party and it is the same as the terminology of communism.

Middle Malaysia comprised of people whose state of mind is common – the desire for national unity, justice, progress, religious freedom, quality education, job opportunities, crime free society, healthcare, rule of law, good governance that is transparent, corruption free police force and an independent judiciary. - Quote from the opposition blog

Look at the Vision and Mission of the ultra kiasu party, DAP.

Our Objectives

The vision of the party is to establish a peaceful and prosperous social democracy that can unite its disparate races and diverse religions and cultures based on:

1. a Malaysian Malaysia concept by forging Malaysian race with universal moral values,

2. offering equal access and opportunity;

3. democractic governance and rule of law;

4. creating wealth and distributing wealth equitably; and

5. fighting against corruption.

Compare it to the terminology of communism as defined in Wikipedia.

Communism is a social structure in which classes are abolished and property is commonly controlled, as well as a political philosophy and social movement that advocates and aims to create such a society. "Pure communism" in the Marxian sense refers to a classless, stateless and oppression-free society where decisions on what to produce and what policies to pursue are made democratically, allowing every member of society to participate in the decision-making process in both the political and economic spheres of life.

This quote is taken from "The Thirteen Million Plus Ringgit" Guy Rambles... .
"It seems that the Chinese Chauvinist DAP is changing its tone of ’Malaysian, Malaysia’ to woo the ’silent majority’ for votes, which rest in the hands of the Malay majority. They are now promoting ‘Middle Malaysia’, as a new battle-cry in the hope that the Malays are now felt being championed by the Chinese Chauvinist DAP, which in the over 40 years tried very hard to undermine the needs of the majority."

In conclusion, there is no such thing as begone with the race based politics, when the individual parties in Malaysia are fighting for the rights of their own race.

Say whatever that is on your mind. Heck! This is a free country after all. If the racists Chinese can swear at the Malays as much as they want, we can do that as well.

However, I will not be held responsible to whatever that you have to say. The comment is solely the private opinion of the author.
