When such incidents happen, a lot of people are quick to jump out and say it's not about race, just the individual. I think, of course there is some "racial" elements that contributed to the tension, as evidenced by the use of "babi".

(this is starting to turn into my own rants)
Also, whenever there are some racial "issues", sometimes people are quick to say "we're already independent for more than 50 years, why is there still racial issues", but you know, wanting everybody to live peacefully regardless of race doesn't mean this is reality.

Sometimes when we put all the blame to individuals we forget to assess the social structure/system that allows/encourage/precipitated in such "isolated" racial incidents.

It's fine to talk about race if everybody tries to be respectful and cool I suppose.

------------
Edit:
Oh, and I don't hate Malays. (LOL)

Hmm okay, I guess this is an opportunity to be perfectly frank. I don't think the other races necessarily hate Malays out of pure racism but there is a certain degree of resentment towards the Malay race in general because we are on the losing end of affirmative, pro-Bumiputera policies (which are arguably unfair).

The whole issue of entitlement vs meritocracy makes it difficult to not feel some bitterness, especially when engaging with sections of the community whose fortunes are disproportionately well-endowed by virtue of birth right. I daresay I represent much of the educated community when I say this- we certainly dislike the circumstances surrounding Malaysia's racial dynamics but we definitely do not dislike Malays as a race. Case in point- I have nothing but absolute respect for Malays who have achieved their success based on merits.

It was a rempit kurang ajar at KFC. That incident could have well happened in a pasar malam at a DVD stall manned by an ah beng.

As indicated, resentment among the non-malays exists. Those who choose not to live under this system and who are able to leave, would just quit Msia.

It's a complex issue and to change this, we would need a group of leaders who are strong enough to see through the reforms.

At the end of the day, everyone regardless of ethnicity sinks if the Malaysian boat sinks. Which implies the system has to function in such a way that it gives all Msians a reason to be proud of Msia. A reason that would drive all Msians to fight for Msia. Unfortunately, the current system alienates many non-malays. The political concept of ketuanan melayu is fundamentally incompatible for the realisation of a modern and developed Msia. So unless the ruling political class changes its political philosophy, Msia is only going to decline. I personally have no faith in the current administration and if they are returned to putrajaya this year.....it's really going to be au revoir et bonne chance, mon cher pays......

It's a sad thing that a gem in the world would end up in such disappointing state.

I don't think so. Of course every race has its own culture and tradition but we have our individuality. Maybe there is racism or discrimination but we should not generalize our judgment. One may be bad but the other one is good. Look objectively. Thanks a lot.

Are you sure?
What makes you say this?

And if what you say is true then what is the reason that Malaysia is a racist country today?

If you were part of the political elite, what suggestions would you make to alleviate any racism in Malaysia?

In my opinion, the Malaysians are generally kind and peace leaving people. They dun really care about race. However, the politicians luv 2 use race and religion as their political weapon.

That being said, thr is 1 point in d constitution tat enables a certain race to have a upper hand compared 2 d other races. However, this action is justified as the British discriminated these races n caused them 2 b d poorest among all the races. This special right enables to undo wat d British did. However, this special right has been exploited by certain parties enabling only a few ppl of this race to b rich while the others continue 2 suffer.
