I have a notion, of a way to probably, maybe, lessen racial discrimination.
By removing the 'race' column from all types of forms. By doing that, they can't tell who and who is and what race they are, right? A Malay anak datuk won't get a scholarship because they don't know that he or she is a Malay, an academically eligible Chinese can get into matriculation, an underprivileged Indian can get government scholarships and a Kadazan/Iban would have to work as hard as the other races to pay off his or her house loan. More equality to it, don't you think so?
Today, my wish has come true: the Cabinet has decided to drop it from official forms.
For one moment there, I'm beginning to believe that our government has realised that playing the racial card is not the way to go and by actually walking their 1Malaysia talk, they can regain the rakyats trust.
Till they decided that "some forms will continue to have the category in relation to special privileges for Bumiputras".
What will be the difference, then? That there will be no discrimination between the Chinese and Indians?
And yes, I acknowledge that the Bumiputras have special privileges to aid them in achieving a better life quality.
But what if they are already born filthy rich and of high status? Do they still get these privileges?
Aren't doctors suppose to treat the sick, and only the sick?
Alas, it had only been a wishful thinking.
