No matter who you are, I'm sure you've watched Hollywood movies with racial themes. Oh, you know... talented and independant black individuals or groups who fights the old order of white power to achieve their american dream.
Some of my favourite movies with racial themes were American History X, The Great Debaters and any inspiring films that features Sidney Poitier.
In the movies we rooted for the black heroes and loathed the condescending white supremacists. (even though many of us still call africans or african americans nigger)
But if we were to make a movie with racial issues in Malaysia, who will be the underdog protagonist and who will resume the role of the despised supreme antagonist? Will the malays be casted as the heroes or the villains?
I'll say neither because even though Malays make up more than half of Malaysians and wield great political power, they are the weaker race economically. The malays are also too nice and accomodating to be the antagonists. I mean, why would you want to say a inspirational but stinging remark directed to the malays to a makcik nasi lemak? She'll just give you less sambal.
But with NGOs like Perkasa who aims to protect the hak ketuanan melayu at all cost, soon the malays will be the clear choice to act as the brown robe wearing, horseback riding, parang wielding KKK (KumpulanKetuananKebangsaan) members.
Remember the Hulu Selangor by-election yesterday? Digest this:
KUALA LUMPUR, April 26 — Malay rights group Perkasa wants the Barisan Nasional (BN) government to review election pledges made in Chinese areas in Hulu Selangor because of the community’s poor support for the coalition.
Its president Datuk Ibrahim Ali (picture) said despite BN’s success in winning the semi-rural seat from PKR, the Chinese voters had largely chosen to back the federal opposition.
“It is necessary for the government to delay any allocation and approval of projects for the Chinese community,” said Ibrahim in a statement responding to the by-election result.
Ibrahim added that the government should also ignore all the demands made by BN members, MCA and Gerakan, as the Chinese of Hulu Selangor had rejected the ruling coalition.
Damn racist bugger.
Eh, I think this is a strong enough excuse to have him jailed by the ISA. He is inciting racially motivated malice. ARREST HIM. But they can't. Why? Perkasa backs BN. With their undying support for UMNO, they will receive special perks.
And with a human manifestation of a warthog leading the pack, I'm afraid the only way to get rid of Perkasa is to feed the leader artery clogging food.
Yes, we're counting on you Datin!
Cook this tonight!
