Non-Malay PM is possible but not multiracial party, says Dr M: Malaysian Insider
I read lots of strange headline and quote in online media and newspaper. Thou, I find this headline is the strangest of all. I don't really understand what our dear father meaning by just simply spitting out a redundant and meaningless word of wisdom for Malaysian to ponder. What does our dear father mean when a non Malay pm is possible but not multiracial party? I believe the thing that holding non Malay to take the top post in Malaysia government power post is the racial party and we need to get it over the racial line to be able to revolve to a new liberal rather than the conservative thinking that colonized our mind for more than 50 years.
"When you talk about a non-Malay PM, you are being racist, because you shouldn't ask the question whether a Malay or non-Malay can be PM. Here everyone can become Prime Minister, but he must be a leader of the majority party,"
When the black American talking about a black president, does this mean they are racist. Why we Malaysian cannot question the government whether a Malay or non Malay can be a PM or not when the chances of being a PM in Malaysia are based on the three racial parties that compromised on a unfair quota system and top post positioning. Who is to decide what is racist or not and what is the clear definition of a racist person? What are we talking about here?
"It doesn't work, every multiracial party is dominated by one race, like Gerakan and DAP. Even PAP in Singapore is not multiracial,"
I am so surprised with the fact twisting from our dear old father quote. It is true that the PAP of Singapore dominated by Chinese but it still respect some other minority race in their head of committee to make sure all people are represented and able to view their own different voices. I don't see any "mata sepet" and "kulit hitam" with a white dot in his or her head in the UMNO website committee page. At least the PAP got some other races as members and in top post even if they not the majority in their party. BN is a classical and ideal example of rule and divide concept to guarantee the power stay only to UMNO top high mile private club membership only. UMNO has evolve and become a cronyism party that hide behind the racial mask that only benefits certain circle of people and become so hard to access even for the Malay themselves.
"I can assure this is very difficult to handle. I have no confidence in Obama, what about Najib. This is too big for Obama and Najib. We need to change the system, to change the system, we need international cooperation,"
Changes is not easy, and nothing with good intention is easy because all the bad stuff glued so tight at something that pretty and beautiful last time. Thanks to our old dear father ignorance and failure to oversee the mess before it permanently become the life and living that eating inside out and slowly killing the nation and people. President-elect Obama not just gave hope to the American, but all the people around the world. He gave us Malaysian the inspiration that nothing is impossible. With a good plan and effort, all hurdle and barrier can be overcome and I hope that he will succeed in his plan not just to change America but the whole world. It might be a too high expectation from a person who just like you and me, but at least he proven to us that change is on progress. Malaysian can change too if we proven ourselves to be worthy as a leader and not just by compromised, quota and race. When everyone outside the nation move one step towards new idealism of change, we Malaysian still struggling to hold to the old ideology that withhold the nation to move along side with other nation.
