Apparently Malay supremacy is not about Malays being superior at all. It's about Malays not being coolies. According to our esteemed PM:
The definition of ketuanan Melayu (Malay supremacy) is not about the Malays being in a position to dominate, rule over and force their power upon other races, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. He said Malay supremacy meant that the Malays, as the indigenous people in Malaysia, needed to strengthen themselves to ensure they were successful and developed.Okaaaaaayyyyyyy... since I'm sure the Malays don't wish the Chinese and Indians to be coolies either, then I'm equally sure that nobody would mind if the Chinese and Indian communities also adopt similarly wholesome and constructive concepts. Right?!
“If they are not successful and developed, then they are not tuan (masters), therefore they will be coolies. I am sure we do not want to become coolies who do not play any role in development because we are weak and not able.
“So when we talk about that (Malay supremacy), we mean we must be successful in many fields. It is never about ruling over others, or forcing our power upon them,” he told reporters after chairing the Umno supreme council meeting last night. - The Star
Sean-the-man hereby proposes that in addition to Ketuanan Melayu, Malaysians also wholeheartedly embrace Kekuasaan Cina and Keagungan India... yes?
