'New Racist Malaysia?' - Anwar warns of new racist narrative

PKR president Anwar Ibrahim warns that there is a new racist narrative plaguing Malaysia, one that is creeping in not just among the Malays, but also among other ethnic groups. "This is not just about the Malays. Some people believe racist tools are only used by the Malays, but that's not true," he said at a brief conference in Bangi on Thursday. "There are also (racists) among the Indians and Chinese, and their narrative is excessive. "(For example) they think that if its poverty, it is (only) about Indians. Or if it is business, it is (only) about Chinese businesses, the Malays are sidelined." Anwar stressed that narratives about poverty or business opportunities must be inclusive of all races, as it affects all Malaysians.
