race or religion, dude?

Snippet from The Star.

OUR teacher was briefing us on how to fill the SPM registration form correctly. When she came to the part on religion, she said: “Put 1 for Islam and for all other religions, put 2”.

A group of students said aloud: “Racist! Racist!” The teacher’s face turned red at the statement. “How many times have I told you never to say that word! That word never existed.” Her firm statement silenced the class.

This incident shows that racism is still active, undermining the integration that we had built since Independence Day. When our Prime Minister launched a series of programmes targeted at Malaysians’ unity, it also shows...

Speechless, reading it in national paper. wtf.
