i'm fed-up with all these outburst. fed-up with all these "what about my kind?" fed up, fed up, fed up.
and they go on to say
However, their hopes to set up the council seem being hindered by a certain state assemblyperson.Lulu thinks the "insider" got it wrong on both counts.
An insider said the assemblyperson had been dragging his feet on the proposal due to fear of losing his prominence and influence in the state government.
“The assemblyperson obviously did not realise that politically the council, if set up, would strengthen his position and influence in the government and party,” said the insider.
He thinks the assemblyperson is not doing anything in fear of losing his prominence and influence.
it obviously does not occur to this insider that the assemblyman [who is probably of the same race as him] does not see race division as a solution to their woes.
and to do it to strengthen his position and influence in the government and party?
that is called main politik, isnt it, and doing things because it is popular and not because it benefits the rakyat.
yippee for that assemblyman! you have lulu's respect.
to these indian dap members who are demanding special rights and preferential treatment, lulu says, maybe you misunderstood the principles of bangsa malaysia which dap holds to, and maybe what you are looking for can be found in mic.
if you're poor, then you're poor. a hungry indian tummy is no different from a hungry chinese tummy or a malay hungry tummy.
if the roof leaks over your head, you will get wet regardless whether you are an indian, chinese or malay.
this new government want to, and they will, look after your tummy and your roof, regardless what your race is.
the old days of umno taking care of the malays, mca the chinese and mic the indians are gone-gone-gone in penang.
when will we ever break free from these shackles of racist thinking?
when will we trust a fellow malaysian to solve our problems, regardless of race?
maybe Lulu in her own way is narrow minded in expecting people to change overnight. after 50 years of umno->malay, mca->chinese, mic->indian, its a bit difficult for people to see differently.
i guess, each of us, in our spheres, need to show the people we meet and come in contact with everyday that we're all the same. we care for one another. we are all anak bangsa malaysia.
