Do you know that in the UK, the Race Relations Act covers discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, nationality, ethnic and national origin in the fields of employment, the provision of goods and services, education and public functions?
Both direct and indirect discrimination are an offence. Those affected by discrimination can seek redress through employment tribunals and the courts.
Everyone's favorite *roll eye* how-stupid-do-you-think-the-rakyat-are minister is one of the two ministers in charge of gathering information and data to draft the Race Relations Act for our country.
The Act would touch on race relations through the economic, education and distribution systems, and includes provisions on punitive action while using the Federal Constitution as the guideline, he said.
What do you think?
Do you think we'd get a UK style Race Relations Act which covers discrimination?
Knowing Syed Hamid, knowing UMNO, knowing the racists and supremacists, Lulu thinks not.
Lulu shudders at the thought of all those new things they would define which we are not allowed to persoalkan.
Lulu hopes that these are one of those acts which will require a 2/3 majority vote and if it has even a whiff of racism and/or supreme-ism at all, the MPs on both sides of the dewan will vote by conscience.
Race Relations Act?
This one we must follow carefully.
