I've recently noticed so much whine, moan, groan n sigh coming from non-Malay/Bumiputera about the NEP, Malay-Bumiputera special rights & privileges etc. They cite its so called counter-productivity, worthlessness, shortsightedness yadda yadda yadda.
Question is, if it's so useless, counter-productive, worthless, makes the Malay-Bumiputera uncompetitive, unproductive etc. how come it's the non-Malay/Bumiputera that's whining the most? To me, if all those things r true, then it should be the Malay-Bumiputera who's whining.
Funny. Am I missing something?
Ha ha ha. Gotcha. There IS a hidden agenda, isnt there? You're leading us all Malay-Bumiputera into a trap, arent you?
The trap of throwing away our sword cum shield cum armour. By calling it a "tongkat".
But you misjudged us. We're not that dense, dudes.
PerisaiLangkasuka would probably still be fishing and planting some paddies with his father to make errands to support his dilapidated family living in a hut if the other races were not brought in to Malaysia. He would probably know about the internet or computer from the daily newspaper, that's all.
The British had to bring in the other races not only because the Malays are just plain lazy but they don't have the ability to learn new things. The non malays were running the show.
The British eventually been pressured by the royals when they saw the non Malays even had to fill in the administrative jobs to run the country; thus the Malays were given a secondary job to learn and help the non Malays. (You can see this evidence when you notice the organization chart for all the depts in Malaysia, the list of directors will be either Whites, Chinese or Indians during the 40s, 50s and 60s. Its the same scenario on all the headmasters list of the schools too). The non Malays were running the show.
UMNO was formed; to fight for their race, what they said. Can't be achieved because the Malays still don't have the ability to learn. Dato Onn Jaafar, the founder of UMNO sensed there's no way out so he propose to open up UMNO to all races. He was ousted immediately. The non Malays were running the show.
British left. Revolutionary period. Its now Tunku's turn to feel the pressure. Not only from the royals, but from his own people from every corner. Instead of letting the country doom, he gave most of the businesses to the Chinese. The nation sees development but he too was ousted by UMNO. The non Malays were running the show.
Then comes Abdul Razak, Hussien Onn and Mahathir. The Malays started to think; 'we definitely can't beat the other races on what they are already good at so lets open up plan B. That plan B were bumiputera status, NEP, quota system, privilege, ISA bla bla bla.. they don'twant to learn any more from the other races, instead they want to learn from 'different races'. Shell was called to set up Petronas, Mitshubishi was brought in for Proton, Almost all the mega development projects were given to Japanese or Korean contractors then. UMNO thought this will be the self destruction plan for the non Malays. But it wasn't working because the unity among the Malays divided. Cronyism and nepotism runs high among them. UMNO leaders soon turns out to be greedy.The non Malays were running the show.
Malaysia globalized. The Umno led Barisan Nasional government had started to suck hard to help the Malays. Pak Lah had sensed its going to backfire him and he had indicated that the NEP will be reviewed. But it was too late. Pak Lah was ousted too by his own people. The ever loyal non Malays gave them a lesson in the last election.
Najib arrives. He knows if he is going to follow his predecessors tactics, its doomsday for him. He had been seen in the Chinese Chow Kit, Hindus Batu Caves, officiate Makkal Sakthi (since he knows he can't rely on MIC), loosen up the education quota, releasing the ISA detainess and more. Oh yes, the 1Malaysia campaign.
Who knows what next? Maybe PerisaiLangkasuka should wake up and starts to learn how to work.
