ethnics relations - students & parents its your call

Ethnics relations, most ordinary folks would think it’s a fairy tale book of some sort so they were told. Or maybe someone own interpretation of events that happened. But of course the ppl in power has little say to it, as it doesn’t affect them in any which way.

So who would you say it will effect the most, you, me or the students at the universities. I’m quite sure all this has been thought through already by the leading gamen. There would be some noise expected from certain quarters but it will not be loud enough to create a ripple.

So the gamen went ahead with this plan of theirs to lie to our children. Not to us, we wont be learning this, our children will. Soon enough, one day, out of the blue, when you are discussing historical events with your children, and so happen the may 13 incident pop out, your kid would say it was the Dap, you say no, it was the Gerakan, your child said shit no, I learnt that in University. What would happen then ? 5 million of our kids seems to know of an historical past that happen which has been altered and taught to them. its like there was vhs all the while and beta never existed.

That is how big this Ethnics relations course and god knows what other course will create one fine day.

I doubt the opposition can do any thing about it, nor does the dozens of letters against it in the malaysiakini or the pps. Unless the ball-less one (PM) do some thing.

Who can actually change this course of events ?

i think the students and the parents themselves should be the sole ppl to dispute the myth of this book. The students of course need to know from their own research of course, that the Ethnics relations course seems a little lop sided. And should question the lecturers of the accuracy of the subject being taught. And should stamp a protest if needed to make them realized of their grave mistake in implementing the course.

And if the students think they are not bold enough to stand up against the University, then they should inform this to their parents and the parents would need to put their foot down firmly on what these universities are educating their children with. Horseshit information.

Students & parents of students, I think its your call.

* well i could be wrong and they recalled back all the books published and the course cancelled, which i hope so of course.

** yoda made an interesting comment though.

A few thousand years ago, given the relatively 'uncivilised' world, we would not and should not expect that any historian or any record meant to be of historical purposes, to be accurately and thruthfully passed on to the next generation(s).

Fast forward to the present, it would seem like we are still not civilised enough to do the correct thing.

There are few crimes more serious than distorting history. Now no matter what happens, please remember the most heinous crime the BN govt has done thus far, The distortion of our history.

The PM has given an order for the book to be retracted:

Now, let's see if those modern history (what an oxymoron) makers dare to challenge his order or not, as the PM is no longer respected even.
