Forget RACE, we are all bloody RED

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:00 PM

If Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians, Ibans, Kadazans and what-other-races you may have in Malaysia take a knife and cut ourselves, what would our similarity be?

Yes, we would all be suicidal – that is one. But the fact is, the first similarity is all of us will be bleeding RED blood – not blue, not green, not yellow, not black, not white.

And should we all die after we bleed our RED blood out, we would all die. When we die – whether we are Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians, Ibans, Kadazans and what-other-races you may have in Malaysia – would we all not decompose in the same way and end up as part of the earth fossils? Or would some of us turn into diamonds, rubies, iron, tin or plain stones?

And if we Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians, Ibans, Kadazans and what-other-races you may have in Malaysia all get into a plane and it crashes into the deepest ocean, would we all not die? Or would race save us and be our float?

And when we all die, after that plane crash, would our souls then enter heaven or hell (if you believe in heaven and hell) based on what race you are?

So, as grim and as macabre the top paragraphs state, why do we even have this obsession for race? Why are we put into boxes – segregated by labels which some forefathers of millions of years ago had given us? Why are we not being pushed into cages of political parties obsessed with race – when race does not make our blood better than one another, when race does not define who we are inside?

In Malaysia, race has too long been used to divide us, to group us, to segregate us – to stop our children from paying together, to stop different humans from starting families, to stop some from getting more than the others, to stop us from being humans with humanity. The race-card has been used to continue to abuse, to get some more priviliges, to gain power over the others, to suppress and to corner some into hidden corners.

Enough is enough, says many. Enough is enough, more and more people say everyday. From the kampungs to the cities, from the slums to the stately homes, from the labourers to the CEOs, from those in the streets to those standing on top of the skyscrapers.

Yet, we have RACE being pushed at us, poking us like some tiny piercing pins, every time we are told to identify ourselves.

From the time we are conceived in the womb of our mothers, we are already given the label of what RACE we are, never mind all of us come out screaming, crying, with the same type of umbilical cord, in the same colour of gooey, red bloody mess.

You are Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians, Ibans, Kadazans and what-other-races you may have in Malaysia – we are told even before we can protest.

And for the rest of our life, this race thing is nailed onto our heads as we claim to be Malaysians. Those who protest are pushed aside by using the RACE-card too.

They are Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians, Ibans, Kadazans and what-other-races you may have in Malaysia – we are told again.

Political parties which govern Malaysia are based on race – and if there are parties which allow humans, they are known as a majority-this-race party.

PKR is a majority-Malay party, Gerakan is a majority-Chinese party. Even a party which claim to be ‘new’ and have fallen out of the main race-based party, are race-based.

And as power blinds and enriches materially, the powers that be ensures that the RACE-card is never never abolished. Even the opposition plays it and shoves it into our face – saying that we are all Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians, Ibans, Kadazans and what-other-races you may have in Malaysia.

When are we ever going to be able to climb out of our RACE boxes and get into that box of ‘HUMANS with HUMANITY’?

  1. When RACISM rears its ugly head, no one race benefits despite all the rhetoric from those corrupt leaders about the benefits of one race over the others. In reality, these corrupt leaders are the ones who become millionaires and billionaires by employing their DIVIDE and RACE politics which will eventually destroy the country.
