Pass it on. Tiga fears that no one will read what it’s like. So with that in mind, I am protecting her blog posts on the Malaysia here. I know Tiga’s more “agnostic/areligious” than flag burning balls to the wall atheist like myself.
I’m so exhausted after a day at the Emergency Department. I’m posted there for my current rotations and it’s been incredibly fun.
I was about to turn in before I saw a post about someone getting annoyed about people expressing political views on facebook. I also realised this person is as dimwitted as most narrow-minded politicians in Malaysia and is one of the closet modern Malays who champion for bumiputra (land-owner) rights in Malaysia. This person who claims to be close to her Chinese and Indian friends is a strong supporter of Malay supremacy. The same supremacy that lets our government use tax payer’s money from ‘second-class citizens’ to pay for her middle-class family’s trips to the UK ever so often.
I am disappointed in these people the most. True racists express their views and are smart enough to not claim to be close to their non-Malay friends. At least there’s no hypocrisy there. However, hypocrisy is worse. Sure, be a racist. Plenty of them out there in the world.
A hypocrite though, is distasteful. It is cowardly and despicable. Because it means you have a stand but know it’s wrong and are afraid to voice it out AND practice what you think in public.
Hate isn’t a good thing to feel. It is tiring and makes me weary. But if I could rid the planet of hypocrites such as you, I would.
Your cowardice disgusts me and your closet bigotry is appalling.
