subject The prevailing racial politics

Umno MPs protested in the Parliament because Opposition MP M Kulasegran (DAP Ipoh) accused UMNO of being a racist party.

M Kulasegran was wrong as pointed out by the Deputy speaker . UMNO is actually a racial party just like MCA and MIC. Unfortunately in a racial party, it is innevitable to have some racists in its midst. It is a breeding ground for racism. To be nonracial in politics is good, to be racial is bad, and to be racist is the worst.

The new MCA leadership said they would champion for all Malaysians regardless of race.They would talk about human rights instead of communal rights Their nonracial political approach is commendable but will they open the door of MCA for other races to be multiracial?

Dato Onn Jaafar, the founder of UMNO was truely non-racial. He was definitely not a racist for he wanted UMNO to be non-racial by admitting Chinese and Indians as members. Unfortunately his noble idea of turning UMNO into a multiracial party did not go down well with the Malays. Neither the Chinese and the Indians gave their support at that time. So racial politics with all its negative effects have prevailed until these days.National integration and unity still remain as a dream.
