The New Breed Of Malays

I get the impression that Nazri is trying to fan the flames while maintaining the facade of "championing the rights of Malays".

I honestly don't think Nazri gives two sh!ts about whether his fellow Malays become successful or not. He's more concerned about whether his pockets are lined through this corrupted policy.

Actually, it really appears like he's taunting them. Check out how he keeps repeating the words "rights" and "merit" like he doesn't believe that they could be accorded that merit without the special rights.

“We (Umno) have to really sit down and think. It looks like the educated Malays do not care about Malay rights anymore,” he said when contacted.

“The Malay doctors, lawyers, engineers feel they have made it on their own merit.

“It looks like the NEP is not something that can be used to persuade the Malays to support the Barisan Nasional.

“The Malays are saying ‘you can’t scare us by talking about us losing our rights, because we are here on our own merit’.”

Nazri said it looked like some Malays felt that the NEP was unfair, and questioned why special rights should be given to the Malays.

He described the new confidence among the Malays as good for the Malay psyche.

Like you've ever bothered about the Malay psyche, Nazri. You've always needed them to be stupid, subservient and unable to think for themselves.

Otherwise, they'd never have voted for you or your racist party.

Unfortunately for you, a lot of them have wised up. A lot of them DO deserve the credit, but no one accords them with it, because it is assumed that their success was due to an artificial boost in the form of "special rights".

They're sick of not being taken seriously; instead being disrespected by the others in Malaysia. Going abroad doesn't help much.

During my undergraduate studies in Malaysia, I took 4 semesters of German, planning to further my studies with a postgraduate degree in Germany. My German lecturer was very enthusiastic about my plans.

He suggested I get a scholarship after enrolling into a German university. He was confident that I'd get it. "Just remember to tell them that you're NOT MALAY, and have not been molly-cuddled with any of that special-rights rubbish," he advised.

So apparently, even the Europeans are aware of this nasty little scourge called the NEP. I thought it was only Thierry Rommel.

The poor Malays.

They can't get any respect here, and they can't get it abroad.

The only way out that I can see is to start anew, abolish the NEP and earn the respect based on merit alone.

But I have faith in some of my Malay friends. I'm sure they can overcome this. And I know that if they make the first step to stand on their own, the rest of us will start respecting them.

Still singing the same old song. This tune has since been reclassified under the blues.
