But there's simple issue which will effect unity still there. We must acknowledge this unity must start from the beginning of schooldays or from young generations.
I'm going to talk about Sek Jenis Kebangsaan. Many might not agreed on what i said but it is the fact that all must think deeply with an open heath.
The schools make us apart in a way & we tend to be not mixed with each other. Imagine that we tends to be separated in the beginning. I must say that the current school system is a good reason the rift between races is so big as now.
Even worst nowdays, where 90% of non-malays tends to send their kids to this kind school. So think about it when will your kids blend with others. If this simple thing cannot start from the beginning, when can we start then?
I'm not sure how old are you or where do u learn during your old days. But for me i venture having friends with different races in those days. Those friends still stick up till now. This is among simple unity which will breed up till we grow.
To think about it ? when do we tend to have mixed friends. It is either from university or at work. Why can't we start from the beginning. Which is from school days. Not that i'm against the Sek Jenis Kebangsaan thing but this actually will segregate the community.
I suggested we implement a single streamlined school system but give everyone the option to learn Chinese and/or Tamil regardless of race. We need to more or less help to close our gaps between races. Strengthen our brotherhood & at least make us less prejudice between each other. What's the point having bangsa malaysia if still we prioritise motherland tongue rather that interest of malaysia.
By separating our kids wont help in the long run. We can start with our children. Children cannot distinguish between races (just like the Petronas advertisement). . Kids will become awkward when confronting other kids.
Ask yourself ? How in the oldays u were raise. Maybe bloggers within my age are lucky to have mixed culture due to this Sek KEbangsaan is not that famous in oldays. But nowdays, its become a trend especially in Suburbs.
