Melayu bodoh.It's funny how we only react actively to that one simple statement when there's actually a lot of other things that actually humiliate our own race; Malays do drugs/smoke weed/rape young girls and etc. I will not be surprised if one day our race will die just like that. Because there's too many little things that we didn't put our attention on. And it's hard for many of us to accept criticism that came from our race itself. We choose to label them as 'lupa bangsa sendiri' or 'kutuk bangsa sendiri' when we could actually learn to improve ourselves for the matter of our race.
Stop pointing fingers at others for the cutback of our race and start pointing at the mirror and sees where the finger is pointing to. It's pointing to ourselves. And we need to start blaming ourselves for not trying to improve our race quality. I'm not judging my own race. I've traveled some other countries and I haven't met any race that treat strangers nicely like we Malaysians do. But it sicken me knowing that our race can't find the logic in 'respect yourself and others will respect you'.
Honestly, from where I am writing now, I feel ashamed with Chinese and Indians that grew up among us. Because to me it seems like they're moving ahead slowly while we are stuck in the phase where we think that our race is solid enough to stay in this country. Yes, our prime minister is a Malay. But that's not the reason to be comfortable from where we are now. That's not the reason to be too confident about the advantage the we, Malays have.
You cannot blame the ministers for this matter. You cannot blame the other people in your race for not trying to improve all this. Look at you. What did you do for the sake of your own race? Sitting behind the computer screen and complain? Making multiples of accounts and say bad stuff anonymously?
I'm just trying to share my thoughts. And I know that this matter can be so sensitive to some people but I'm willing to take the risk. Because this matter sicken me. And if any of you wish to object my arguments, please do it in the most polite way you can think of because if you don't, you just agree with me saying that Malays will only be so serious when other people talk bad about their race.
