Are Chinese newspapers racist, too?
COMMENT When questioned at a press conference about Utusan Malaysia ’s highly strident front-page piece: ‘ Apa lagi Cina mahu? ’ (What else do the Chinese want?), newly-minted Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak retorted, “Ya lah, you blame Utusan , how about the Chinese papers?” and left in a huff. So do Chinese newspapers also resort to racism? I don’t think so. The facts speak for themselves.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
