Wish we saw stuff like this on Malaysian TV

BBC Radio 4’s Crossing Continents travelled to Malaysia to explore the divide among races and spoke to the new generation of Malaysians pushing for more equality after decades of a system of racial preferences.

This extract features reporter Mukul Devichand speaking to Sue, a Malay Muslim. Religion is important to her and this has influenced her views on race.

The full documentary was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Thursday, 8 January, 2008.

    I believe there are plenty of Malaysians like her. In fact, I believe they are the silent majority.

    She must have studied abroad, exposed to western democratic
    views.I am a bit skeptical about the sincerity of what she said.
    Was she trying to impresss the reporter , knowing that BBC will be showing the video to the world.If she is truly sincere, she is a very small minorities. The world will respect Malaysia when a non-malay can be the PM, CEO of petronas, Proton etc. I will never accept that there are no non-malays who are eligible for such jobs.

    If you are non Malay you cannot even be a lousy General Manager of a state owned company. In the case of Ms Low Siew Moi and her appointment as acting GM of a Selangor GLC her appointment was even opposed by the Selangor PAS state commissioner no less. Even though PAS is based on Islamic principles but its members are far from practising true Islamic principles.
    Most malays in this country are somewhat bigotted.

    “Most malays in this country are somewhat bigotted.”

    Well most Chinese in this country are opportunistic racists.
    And most Indians in this country are toddy-drinking swindlers.
    And most whites are bellicose supremacists
    Most blacks are violent barbarians
    Most Australians carry convict genes
    Most Indonesians are liars and thieves
    Most Singaporeans are kiasu
    Most Thais practise evil black magic

    And we can go on and on and on…

    Question is: when do we stop?
