Racist sabotaging the nation’s unity

Recently, Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng had called for local talents working abroad to return to support the development of our nation.

And yet, there is a disgusting call by some people to deny job opportunities to a Malaysian Chinese who is very capable and experienced in her field, tested with her track record proven just because of her racial background.

Why can’t these racist uncivilized people realize that when the country prospers so do its citizens, including those racist themselves. Let’s take a look of some hardcore poor residing in Selangor for the past decades. Why are these people remain poor and illiterate?

All these years during the Barisan Nasional’s reign in the state, did those Umno appointed PKNS general managers (all were Malays) help alleviate the conditions of these poor people?

We cannot deny that race issues and racist policies still plague the nation. Until these racist issues can be put to stop and act as One Malaysian, more and more of our talents will leave the country and even a lot are considering leaving now.

These damages was in fact caused by the Barisan Nasional and Umno governance which yet again uses its racial card and neo-Nazi style of politicking for their own political mileage. Even with our vast resources and economic opportunities, today we are lack behind Singapore. Who knows Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos may overtake us one day! It can happen, because Barisan Nasional and Umno are continuing their “ketuanan” onto others.
