We, Malaysians deserve equal rights to EDUCATION.

Take a bow, mate.
First and foremost, let me just say that I'm about voice out what's on my mind on a very sensitive issue to some. But I can't continue to keep this thoughts in my head just because a small amount of people are going to disagree with me on this.

Second, I understand that Article 153 of the Constitution of Malaysia protects the Bumiputra rights. Including the rights of tertiary education enrollment and scholarships.

What I would like to voice out is that every Malaysian deserves equal right and chance when it comes to education. Why should anyone be a victim of unequal rights to education just because you are happened to be born as a non-bumiputra which no one was ever given the choice to choose what they would like to be born as.

Let's turn the table around. IMAGINE, I say IMAGINE. Imagine the Chinese's rights to education is protected instead of Bumiputra. Say, I were to score 3As in SPM while my fellow brothers and sisters from another race scores 8As, 9As but I get offers to university instead of them. Would I feel proud? Yes, that moment when I get my offer I would be jumping of joy. But when I find out that people around me that achieved better results than me did not receive offers from universities, I would feel ashamed.

Ashamed not because they are smarter than me. Ashamed because I will start to question my qualifications. Aren't my brothers and sisters from other races are Malaysians too? If they are Malaysians too, why are they not given the chance to go to university? Is it because I'm born as a Chinese and I'm more superior than my other friends?

I say let education be equal. Whether you are a Malay, Chinese, Indian, or others, let us have a healthy competition when it comes to education and may the best individual wins regardless of race.

I have no intent to champion for the Chinese race in this matter, because to me, when it comes to education, race should not matter at all. Individual is what matters most. You deserve what you get because of your effort, not because of your skin.

I have nothing to gain from posting this up. Nobody paid me to write this. Instead I will get people hating on me for this. And I'm risking quite a lot just to write this because this is a extremely sensitive topic but I want you guys to think about it. Because we are the generation in line to lead this country.

Agree or disagree? You can leave a comment, but stay away from racism. Let this be an open discussion. If your argument is going to be "if you don't agree with bla bla bla, you can move to other country", don't bother wasting my time.

I'm a Malaysian first, Chinese second. I will proudly admit that for the rest of my life.

15 Problems Faced As A Student.

1. Teachers who generalize every student. They would expect every student to complete their homework, to do their notes, to score well in exams etc. But no, every student is different in terms of abilities and capabilities. You don't have to complete your notes to be a good student.

2. Nobody gives a shit about your results 12 months after.

3. Memorise a damn book without understanding a shit yet ends up with an A.

4. Textbooks are shit.

5. Teachers who gossip more than 'Gossip Girl'.

6. Scores A for English but with broken English.

7. Fails a subject and people think you're stupid.

8. Gets an A but actually a stupid person.

9. Pendidikan Moral is a pointless compulsory subject for SPM which will never ever help you in life because who the hell even needs to memorise 36 values and it's definition.

10. I hate art, and teacher expects me to do my art homework. No.

11. Pendidikan Sivik dan Kenegeraaan? The fuck.

12. Extra co-curricular activities because you sleep in the afternoon too much.

13. School constantly find ways to milk our money.

14. 'Sila jaga nama baik sekolah'. K, you're drunk.

15. Bahasa Melayu subject which has too many short stories for no apparent reason.

These are just my opinion, you can agree or disagree at the comment section. Or if you have any other problem which you would like to add, comment too!
