Pilak is a Racist word

Pilak word originated from suluk word. It does bring the meaning of money. But in Malaysia, this has different derogatory meaning. It bring the meaning of criminal, drug addict, rapist, killer and other degrading meaning within our imaginary spectrum.

So in short, it is a racist word where bring one new word that is Pilipino phobia. In which it meaning, the fear, dislike and hatred of Pilipino that mostly tausug origin. No matter it tausug or not, if they're legally or illegally from Philippine, they're with in the dirty race as called as the P word.

After watching video and reading material from the internet about genocide and holocaust, i can see that these entire things happen because of hatred and fear and also dislike of certain race. Hitler suspected by scholar a Jew descendent is technically not a Jewish. As i remembered a Jewish friend of mine told me that Jewish descendent is inherit from the mother side. So, it is okay for Hitler to kill millions of Jews because he not really a Jews in the eyes of the Jewish people.

To make the matter worst, he took this sentiment to make himself up to the power. All he wants is not nationalism or sovereign of the race but a reason for him to raise power. So he smart enough to play with the people sentiment. That is anti-Semitism. He just pure coward opportunist. He was not doing it for the German people. He brings the German people to its darkest moment in history.

So what it is about this anti-P page? The thing that i saw is the sentiment that played by few some people that tell lies that not even exist. They misinform delusion between the fact and lies and drew their own conclusion to satisfy their hate and fear over one race. And the bad thing was many believe them. Their bigotry mentally shut them from the truth even with the fact presented.

At the moment, there are no dangers of them to do something today. But who knows that when this young people become older they might be holding some power in government and military. We just need one of them to get on top of the government to dictate their fear and hatred and we will get ourselves a version of genocide depends who is the winning side.

It is hard to stop with what they're doing at the moment, but the only thing we can do is to tell the truth. Correct their lies and make sure others will not influenced by their hate and fear. With hate and fear we tend to anything to survive. Even if we have to kill our neighbor or certain kind of race. It is a brainwash in masses.

Like a nuclear power station in fukushima, i want to make sure that our community will not fall down to a point beyond return. If the containment was compromised and all the radioactive exposed, the mess will be lethal. We need to wait for many generation before all this radioactive disappear and diluted to the environment. Some of them will not doing that in a very long time.

YOU ARE WRONG! LOL. Pilak simply means the illegal immigrants that is populating the city. Due to they are too many illegal immigrants in Sabah and mostly is from the Philipines, the locals assume that they are illegal immigrants or have been residing here with fake identification card. You are thinking that the pilak also meant the commited crimes such as drugs use, rapist or murder because most of these crime are mostly done by this circle of people maybe because of poor state of livin or lack of academic or religion educations. But that is just something that the locals are aware of when they think of the illegal immigrants. But it doesnt necessary means they r criminal. It just means they r illegal immigrants!Simple!

The name Philae derive from the Greek pronunciation of the ancient Egyptian "Pilak" which is itself thought to have been Nubian in original meaning for the Island of the time of RA. For your information go to
In this days it is very difficult to believe because it is not your word. The Greek called this Island Philae, but we called it Pilak because it is our Island and located in Southern Egypt. It is were the Kushite King Arkamani built his temple. Please, do not translate this word if you do not know what does it mean.

This is an old blog entry but I can't help it but to share my opinion. I don't know what others views on "Pilak", but here's mine and others who share the same notion; I am a local sabahan, "Pilak" is not a racist word. "Pilak" is not even a race, we use it to refer the immigrant from Philippine usually the illegal one. It does not mean they are killers, robbers, rapist or anything, but just illegal immigrant from Philippine. But due to many crimes cases involving illegal immigrants, many come to believe that these people are dangerous. I am cautious but I am one of those who believe that each individual is different. I have friends from Philippine, we were once colleagues and we get along well. They are good people and I never use the term "Pilak" on them. I will introduce them as, 'They are my friend from Philippine'. Due to government negligence about this illegal immigrants problem in Sabah, their numbers loom greatly in just a few years and now probably more than the locals which raise awareness among locals and at the same time heighten their fear of being eradicated from their own land. You cannot really blame them thinking that way, when negativism rose and without proper enlightening, some people will always have those thoughts.

Not all the Filipinos are bad people. Some of them are much better than the locals. And not all of them are illegal immigrants. Some are here legally and there're looking for jobs due to them facing hardship in their country. It's just a matter of "one rotten apple spoils the whole barrel".
