Nowadays, racism never end in today's world. Even during Rasulullah SAW epoch, there were many tribe of Arabic who were fight to defend their own tribe. Consequently, a lot of unsinful soul were killed.
There was a time in Europe where a war was happened between the white people and the black people. This history that can be a guide for the new generation had been adapted to a movie titled ' The Freedom Writer '. Although the movie a bit different, but still the theme is same , about racism.
In Malaysia today, there are a lot of racism problems. Whether it is between Chinese-Indian, Malay-Chinese,or Malay-Indian.. but nowadays the hot topic now is between Malaysian and Indonesian.
In this case, I feel kind a guilty to support between those races. I am Malaysian, was born in Malaysia, grown up in Malaysia and learn everything in Malaysia, so no doubt I really love Malaysia, my own country, plus, who aren't ? But both my parents originally are from Indonesia, just because there stayed here for long time, they don't look like Indonesian, even my dad have get the title of Malaysia's citizen since I was a kid. And my mum will get soon too..
So, what's bothering me now ? I'm not bothered about that, I just dissappointed with both society behaviour in showing off that they are better.
And I really really dissappointed hearing the latest new yesterday happened at my flat. Yesterday, a big wedding were held under my flat. As usual , it been 2 days the residents of this flat cooperate for the wedding. While the women having their tea-time, there was a Malay lady gave to those women the ginger drink. Then came a young lady who is Indonesian said, " Ye, minumlah.. air halia elok untuk buang angin ( yes, drink it, this ginger drink is good for our body ) ".. As she said that, came an old Malay lady who suffered a lot of disease, said " Kau jangan, Kau tu sedar diri kau sikit, Kau tu cuma menumpang saja, sedar diri kau tu Indon ! ( You should behave yourself, you just an immigrant, just so you know that you from Indon ! ) ".. The young Indonesian lady who seems shocked just replied ' Betul la apa yang saya kata, halia elok untuk badan .. apa masalah dia ?( what ? I said the right thing, rite ? ginger's good for our body ? what's her problem ? ) " .. And that night the residents have kept working but the old Malay lady kept saying " Sedarlah diri sikit, Kau tu Indon, Cuma menumpang ! ( just behave yourself, you're Indon, just a lodger ! ) " .. Her words were not just hurted the young Indonesian lady but almost all the residents who cooperate there because all of them are from Indonesia and if they aren't , their wife or their parents ( like mine ) are from Indonesia. But they just ignored her cynic word and kept on working. In my flat here, there are many Indonesia but they have stayed here for a long time.. It's not that there don't have any Malaysian at my flat, YES, here have a lot of Malaysian too, but the Malaysian resident here aren't interest if it involve social work, they even don't hob-nob with their own neighbour, and the one who held this wedding isn't Indonesian,he was Malaysian, but who helped a lot ? Most of them are Indonesian ! They don't get paid though..
It's not I want to make them proud, I'm not at any side, but to be frank, when I went to Indonesia, visiting my village, the resident there were friendly compared to Malaysian eventhough they knew I'm Malaysian. They don't differentiate me. This is not my own judgement, even my dad's passengers ( my dad is a driver taxi ) who came from Japan, India and Europe told him the same thing. Bluntly, I feel hurt with my own friend who will hate Indonesian without any sensible reasons.. she hate everything from there, their music, history, food, clothe and culture, but she can be friend with me, kind a weird isn't it ? recently, this topic kind a sensitive to me, even in my family.. just put yourself in my place, you'll be in the middle, you cant be in both side.. sometimes my family don't care bout my feeling, keep proud of Indonesia, and condemn Malaysia.. can tell me how my feeling was ?
In my point of view, both Malaysian and Indonesian are same, none are more honour or better in locality, it's how we act towards each other and what we did for the doomsday.. it's just maybe a lil differ if compare the lang and the culture.. But as long as we're in the same religion, ISLAM, we are relative among muslim..
