Okay, so was the video racist? Ergh, Yes and No. I have no idea why a lot of people think it's extemely racist. It didn't slur the malay race (or any other race for that matter) and Namewee's insults were directed to Siti Inshah so if anyone should be angry, it's that racist principal.
But I understand why malays are so angry with Namewee. Here is a person who is openly expressing his thoughts about his view on the dynamism of race relations in our country. He pointed out that the chinese were the ones that made Malaysia rich, which is true if you opt to study the correlation between race and income tax in Malaysia.
True as it may, specifying the chinese race as the main cause of Malaysia's economic prosperity is by itself a racist remark.
We worked together to make this country great therefore we shouldn't attribute a certain race to the success of Malaysia. When Lee Chong Wei was announced the world's no.1 badminton player, did the fact that he's chinese made a difference? No!
When Nicole David reigned as squash's no.1 player, did the fact that she's chindian made any difference to the way the whole country celebrated her victory? No!
When Vince Chong and Jaclyn Victor won Akademi Fantasia and Malaysian Idol (respectively), did the fact that they were chinese and indian made any difference to the viewers' votes? No! If anything at all, more than 70% votes were casted by malay viewers and they still chose a non-malay. Why? Because malays are and were never racist.
But the chinese communities in Malaysia continued with their racist sentiments in their media, business and politics. This is why stupid groups like Perkasa sprung up from oblivion. This is why the malay people let this Ass Monkey by the name of Ibrahim Ali run their errands or reaction.
So if the chinese think that Malaysia is getting more and more intolerant towards chinese people, they should really do some soul searching.
What language do you usually speak?
What school did you sent your children too?
Have you ever invited malays or indians to your parties or weddings?
This ChinaTown mentality has to go if the chinese wants a harmonious relationship with other races in Malaysia. Open the gates to ChinaTown and let everyone in. Let them in. Share your prosperity with the malays and indians. Teach them, nurture them. If you keep on living in that enclosed gold dragon gates of yours, people would either want to break through the gates or make the people living inside it move out to Canada, US or Australia by making them feel alienated in their own land.
