I think the majority of Malaysians are racially cohesive and want to live with each other in harmony. Our problem is the government of the day is using race to stir up racial issues for political expediency. Hopefully the rural folks will see the light finally and throw their support behind Pakatan for a new government in the next GE.

Unfortunately the rural folks are still unknowingly being fed nightly BN propaganda by TV3 8pm news bulletin. Now you know why PPSMI is abolished, so that they could not understand alternative media that is not in BM.

DAP in Johor had an open air screening of Yasmin Ahmad’s Talentime for the Merdeka celebration in JB, free for all. this is the right spirit of togetherness for all races. Somehow BN missed the point.

BN has failed us in perpaduan rakyat.
Tania Putera is dividing us.
