But let’s be clear: A broad admiration for certain facets of Chinese culture ought not conceal the fact that bad racial attitudes there may be at least as pervasive as they are in Malaysia.
There are those who would have us assess individuals not as being human types, but as being examples of what we’re told to genetically expect from a given ethnic group.
That is an impulse that all of us—across skin tones, ethnic cultures and political systems—must continually expose and fight.
This is a another way of telling that chinese schools do not want malay and indian teachers.How to practise in teaching unity in the minds of the youngs?
The Chinese are generally natural born racists. I wonder would the millions of Chinese in Australia, America, Canada, Britain would dare to ask the same in terms of education in those so called beacons of democracy or any other nations around the World where they reside. Bare in mind the Chinese are in almost all the countries in the World. Why don’t this so called Big Dongers(dong Zong) think?
It is only in Malaysia that the Chinese tend to behave overly arrogant. with Dong Zong demand, how could the demand get into the nerve and patience of the Malay?
if the Malay teacher can speak mandarin, he is most welcome to the chinese school or he is just there to teach Malay subject, there is nothing wrong.why to need a
Dong Zong didsay Malay teachers could not teach in chinese schools, they said those teachers who could not speak mandarin should not be in chinese schools, chinese schools do not welcome those chinese who could not speak mandarin not in chinese schools be so racalist is the problem here?
please do not twist it into a racial issue, looking at Dong Zong , one can know is very racist I dont understand why there are people voted down on Plato’s comment. What he commented is very true If looking at the demand of Dong Zong. I mean why must be one race in chineese school..i just cant comprehend.
This kind of chineese make the malays vote in PERKASA..so whats next..race riot ?
India is always a mystery, a country which is so huge that practices from Kashmir to Kanyakumari are as different from each other as Scotland is from Greece or Russia. Each state is like a different country with diverse languages, cuisines, clothes, customs, climate. Punjabis are closer in terms of their food and language to Pakistanis than to Tamils.
All these differences made people fairly suspicious of those who were not like them. And ‘people like us’ closed ranks and bonded. These closed communities are naturally full of prejudices towards the other, the outsider. Every state considers itself superior. This phenomenon is global, like Polish, Italian jokes in America. Or English, Irish, Welsh, Scottish jokes in the UK. We stereotype each other mercilessly and there are jokes galore about food, clothes and accents (how residents of each state speak English, actually!).
There’s a huge North-South divide too. Yet, in pre-colonial times, India was a haven for persecuted people. We gave refuge to Jewish people, Parsis from Persia, Armenians and later Chinese who ran away from the Revolution, and Tibetans who fled the Chinese. These people kept their distinct, separate identities but they prospered and loved India.
There’s another side to us though. As migration takes place, across state borders within India, a kind of xenophobia begins. In Mumbai in the 1960s, Maharashtrians were incited by Enoch Powell- like politicians to drive out south Indians, Madrasis, they called them, (somewhat similar to calling people Pakis in the UK), who were stealing their jobs, claimed the rabble rousers.
Sounds familiar? Recently, the same paranoid party called for North Indians to be thrown out. Many poor, migrant Biharis were beaten up, attacked and threatened as they went about their daily grind, often working for a pittance. In Bangalore there are rumblings of resentment over north Indian techies who have flooded the city with their loud, noisy, in-your-face manners. South Indians are relatively quiet, stand in queues and can’t understand the chaos of a northern railway station, a bit like Sicilians versus North Italians.
In the 1970s, when I used to visit Rome often, I found Italians warm and friendly. In the last decade that has changed. The racism towards Africans shocked me. I also discovered hordes of Bangladeshi flower sellers being rudely shooed away by Italians waiting for the traffic lights to turn green. I wondered how could things change so quickly, from warm, friendly to hostile ‘they’re swamping us with their alien culture.’
In Bangalore a bunch of Nigerians were picked up for drug peddling. The hostility is because of this perhaps. But there’s no getting away from Indian racism. In the heart of Mumbai, there’s a Nigerian ghetto. Ghettos are born because a minority feels it can find safety in numbers. The environment outside the ghetto is not warm or welcoming to Africans by and large. Students from North East India are mostly dubbed ‘chinky’. People ask them if they are Japanese, Chinese or Korean. There is total ignorance in most parts of India about the culture, indeed about anything North Eastern.
Men all over India drool over porn at their home computers and in internet cafes around the country. So it could be dangerous for a white, blonde woman to walk alone at night, too many men have been fantasizing about her. They stereotype white women as easy.
Indians rarely perceive beauty in black or far-eastern women. In fact, most Indians look for pale-skinned brides for their sons. Bridal ads ask for ‘fair skinned’ girls. So skin colour is important and you can’t be beautiful if you are not fair. Prospective bride seekers swarm into the girl’s house to ‘see the bride’. They have no compunction about saying, in front of the bride and her family, ‘she’s too black, we don’t want black grandchildren.’ Sensitivity, tact or even basic good manners are not common among average Indian families. They’d be genuinely astonished if you called them gross or uncouth.
