Younger generation disapproves race-based policies

PETALING JAYA: Most young Malaysians are against race-based policies and favour merits-based dealings, a survey commissioned by the Centre for Better Tomorrow (Cenbet) revealed.

The survey was carried out last year and covered 1,056 Malaysians, aged between 18 and 25 years, in the peninsula of diverse backgrounds.

About 88% of those surveyed favoured merits-based dealings over race, Cenbet co-president Gan Ping Sieu told a press conference here today to reveal the findings of the year-long survey on racism.

He said the survey results would be used to form a statistical model known as the Cenbet Racism Index (CRI) to show the general outlook or attitude of the people.

“Whether it comes to voting for someone who’s of a different race, buying properties or socialising with their friends, those in the 18-35 years of age bracket tend to be more colour blind,” he added.

Gan pointed out that ethnic Malays were split equally when it came to wanting pro-Malay policies, with 42% saying “no” and the same number of respondents saying “yes”.

“The finding contradict suggestions that most Malays are afraid to compete and rely heavily on government aid.

“This shows that they don’t necessarily want race-based policies. They are actually divided,” he added.

Gan also said it is time that the government develops and incorporates a ‘National Unity Index’ in formulating key public policies and administrative measures.

The data released was the second part of a survey on racism commissioned by Cenbet.

The first part, which covered a broader spectrum of Malaysians of all ages which showed that more than half of those surveyed admitted to being either selectively or openly racist, was released on March 17.

星期四,3/11/2016 对已故主人相思未了,猫咪苦苦2守在主人坟前长达一年。 据英国《每日邮报》10月31日报道,印尼中爪哇省(Central Java),一只悲伤的小猫因过度想念过世的主人,竟然在主人坟前守了1年之久。 有时候,甚至还可以听到猫咪躺在墓地前哀号的声音。 纵然有好心的路人经常为小猫提供食物和饮水,但它仍然不愿离开墓地,每天晚上在地上打滚,然后睡在那里。 28岁的普雷伊诺(Keli Keningau Prayitno)曾尝试收养它,但它总是回到墓地,守在蓝色墓碑前。 普雷伊诺说:“我以为它是流浪猫,想要帮它。但每次它都会重新回到墓地。” 普雷伊诺说,经过调查之后,他才知道猫咪的前主人是一位老妇人,1年前去世。 他表示曾经跟踪过小猫,发现它有时回到曾生活过的地方,已故主人的孩子在喂它,吃饱后,这只小猫会重新回到墓地。 普雷伊诺称看到这些画面让人感到十分忧伤,也显示出小猫与主人的关系多么亲密。   图文来自:网路
