Of bigots and criminal DNA in culture



Just ponder...when we hear or read about maid abuse (especially of Indonesian maids), kidnapping for huge ransoms, organised contraband smuggling, gang rivalries, smuggling and distribution of opium, hard drugs or designer pills , illegal betting , gambling , prostitution and 'ibu ayam' (pimping), pirated DVDs ,brutal slayings, hired gunmen, do we think of the Malays (whether as individuals or otherwise) ?

Add to the list the latest busting of a family involved in the despicable act of 'manufacturing' babies for sale in Banting, Selangor...

There are many types of corruption but the ones linked to brutality and violence are not normally associated with the Malay society . At worst, Malays resort to bomohs to seek revenge, something no one can be very certain if that is an effective way of acting out vengeance.

Henceforth, the blinkered racial bigots whose eyes are ONLY set on the Malays for any wrongdoings under the sun ought to be more objective. It is a fact that Chinatowns anywhere in the world are associated with the criminal, organised underworld.

What has the Chinese of this country done to get away from that image? Can we not shake off such dark cultural associations? No, we cant...it is very difficult when the majority still directly or indirectly condones such things, either by being apathetic or plain disregard.

Why can't we look inwards at our own society and community and start building a new and positive cultural image...crime is never part of any cultural makeup. It is merely a crude exploitation of a society's weaknesses, which the elders and wise omit to address.

Just imagine, with such thick criminal traits within certain spectrum of society, what will happen if they gain political power?

The ramifications can be intelligently predicted.

What you said is so true. But why it was not highlighted in the blogsphere?

We can trace back every piece of crime to this race. No doubt they are good in business, but many of the businesses are illegal or somehow bypassing the law.

The scenario is not only happening in our country. It has also happened in country like Australia and New Zealand. Ever wonder why the Aussie are said to be racist coz they hate asian. It is not asian as a whole, but the asian chinese. This is one of the cause as their provincial turns upside down as a result of the coming of this race.

I am not saying that the chinese do not have the right to compete or stay in whatever country, but they should not keep on blaming others or demand the unnecessary when their race has also brought multitude of problem to many provincial society, particularly in the form of organized crime.

Non-triad Chinese

Dear Non-Triad Chinese,

Yes,true indeed its not that all Chinese are to be blamed just like the Malays or Indians...

The chinese do have the right to compete or stay in whatever country, but they should not keep on blaming others or demand the unnecessary when their race has also brought multitude of problem to many provincial society, particularly in the form of organized crime.

It is a fact even in the early days of pre-British Malaya in Perak, Sgor...and even to this day in its many facets.
