I'm trying VERY hard to feel upset. Or hurt. Or dissed.
But no matter how hard I attempt to conjure up any emotion along those lines, I fail miserably. :)
Maybe if it had been one of the Ivy League colleges (you know - Yale, Harvard or Princeton) in the USA or Oxbridge in the UK pracising some neighbourhood-friendly racism, perhaps I may feel a little down.
But it's UiTM!!! UiTM, for the love of God!! So UiTM slams MB’s proposal to open its doors to non-bumiputra students. Do I look like I care??
I think UiTM doesn't get it. I don't think they understand how poorly the rest of us think of them. Among strangers within the engineering fraternity, there are times when we mention our alma mater while making small talk.
Usually, the UiTM graduate is spotted long before he identifies himself. No speak English. No think many. Dunno.
In fact, the creep of an MB, Khalid Ibrahim, was asking for UiTM to open 10% of its intake to the other races to raise the level of integration, competitiveness and the quality of graduates.
I find this offensive. The MB obviously doesn't care that with a mere 10% representation of non-Malays, it is more likely that the standard of the non-Malay will drop rather than the standard of Malays will rise.
Frankly, I would never consider sending any child of mine to that university, should it ever open its doors to non-Malays. I don't know which non-Malay would be so desperate to enter into that university, unless his results were so poor.
Even then, the standard of education in UiTM is so bad (judging from the majority of its graduates), that passing up on a higher education would be a better option entirely. Why go through 3 years of classes only to be unemployable later?
Save yourselves the cash. Save yourselves the grief.
To hell with UITM - MAVERIQUE
