Tomorrow will be Merdeka, yet is there real independence in Malaysia from the issues that made it so difficult to get her independence in the first place? I don’t think so.

Racism is one of the biggest problems we face today along with religion. Until we learnt to talk about it and to be at ease with each other about it we will be faced with it for a long time. However, I realise that it is a difficult task because most are still immature when it comes to this topic. They come not to understand, but to prove that their race is superior (don’t we all?) Until we can change that attitude, talking about race and religion will always be a dangerous thing.
