Personally, the disparity among the rich and the poor is greater since Independence. We have long been told that the Government is treating everyone equally, regardless of ethnic groups, with special attention to Bumiputera, so called "Ketuanan Melayu".
However, if what is claimed by the Government is true, Malaysia should be far better than it is now.
The truth is:
we are still being fooled of "May 13" incident by the Government to fear us from asking for our rights;
We are stilled being fooled that the Malay, or Bumiputera is still far away from other ethnic groups like Chinese and Indian, whom thus need further assistance in the form of New Economic Policy, or alike, in order to maintain Malay domination.
And what we see, feel, heard, are different from the propaganda from the Government, controlled media, and even to the extend to suppress indifferent voices.
It is true that a big portion of Malay is still struggling for their daily needs, where have all the wealth and resources gone?
We witnessed the unheard crying, what are we going to do to next? Where is our "Wakil Rakyat" or the Representative of People? What are you going to do next?
Do we want to be like them one day?
