|Baba Huang asks Malaysian Chinese "Allow me to love all of you, alright?"|
So His Excellency sees himself as the "minder" of Chinese education in Malaysia. But China's commitment to Chinese education in the Malay Peninsula goes a long way back - to 1922 - and maybe even earlier. That ambition had cast a long shadow over Malaysia's past, present and future

If only, oh if only the Malays - the Malaikwai (Malay devil) - could find protection and succour in the arms of "an economic superpower" like our fellow Chinese citizens. If only we had the formula to enable us to put our bums on two stools.

For as long as this septuagenarian can remember, three words were never to be used to describe Indians in Singapore and Malaysia. They are Keling and Pariah and P*****. Such utterances would - in my mother's eyes - deserve a red hot chili rubbed hard against the lips.
From the Internet: pariah is a social outcast, a member of a low caste in South India.
"1610s, from Portuguese paria or directly from Tamil paraiyar, plural of paraiyan "drummer" (at festivals, the hereditary duty of members of the largest of the lower castes of southern India), from parai "large festival drum." Especially numerous at Madras, where its members supplied most of the domestics in European service" [OED]. Applied by Hindus and Europeans to any members of low Hindu castes and even to outcastes.
Last year Tun M declared my bangsa as "shameless". In 2015 he called my "tanah tumpah darah ku" a pariah state.
Malaysian Chinese can take refuge in Baba Huang's Middle Kingdom. Indians can return to the Indian sub-continent.
Malays can only putih tulang and putih mata.
Nana, nana. Lekas pulang.
Aci takut tinggal sa orang
Belakang rumah ada jembalang.
Mata sepit, hidung-nya belang.
