In the United States of America the blacks succeeded in getting their voting rights pursuant to the Voting Rights Act 1965, ie., eight years after Malaysia’s independence when we got our first right to vote. But within 44 years USA has had a quantum leap by having it’s first black and ‘muslim’ President and Chief Executive of the USA in the person of Barack Husein Obama duly elected by the civil society, 90% of whom are white caucasian Americans.
Going by PKR’s Anwar Ibrahim’s standards there can never even be a single Indian MP or State Assemblyman as their sole criteria is Malay only candidates, as we see in Teluk Kemang, Lunas, Ijok and Hulu Selangor.
Similarly under the 53 year old UMNO regime rule, UMNO would not even give about the lowest level chief administrative job, ie., a post masters job to an Indian.
Today we get to hear about Indian postmasters only in the back obituary pages of the newspapers (see The Star 14/4/2010 at page N54).
