Deep down…deeper down…

I find it rather alarming and disturbing that we still have racial issue and tension could be stoked easily among major races in Malaysia. Why can’t we accept each and everyone of us as we are? Why must we hate each other and hurt each other?

I think…such things happened because we couldn’t… or rather,  refuse to learn and understand each other’s religion and culture. And therefore, we could not accept one another as we are when deep down, we’re just the same. We’re human of the same species, with different religious views and cultural practices.

Just look at the video above… one Negro… and one Indian man… singing the same song. One may not understand what the other is singing… but one could try to love it and see that the melody that the other man is singing is as beautiful as the song in his own language.

Here’s some food for your thoughts, folks:

What matters to God is our love for Him and our love for each other. Wealth, power and status count for nothing in the kingdom of God. When we truly love our neighbors, we do our part to make the world a better place, and we find our own fulfillment in life.

Have a happy, productive, and fulfilling Monday, folks. Let not the Monday blues gets to you, for there are many others who would do anything for just another day.

Cleffairy: Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. (Matthew 7:1-5)

    The fires of racism are stoked by those self-serving politicians who are desperate for attention and sympathy votes. Luckily, more and more Msians have come to understand that and are rejecting. We have to thank the political bloggers for highlighting whatever that has been censored by the mainstream media.

      It’s the divide and conquer again. *sigh* I just hope that people won’t fall into the trap… 🙁 Unfortunately… there are many dense people out there! Grr!

    Ever since the Tower of Babel… But it was ok during my younger days. We were all the same – Sarawakians under British colonial rule. Polticians have been exploiting it to garner support and this is the backlash… But it’s the same everywhere… Don’t think it’s any better even in the advanced countries – racism is just at bad…but they are not in the least bothered as the other races are the minorities.

      🙁 I just dun get it… after all these years… we still have racial sentiments. Sigh…if only each and everyone of us could respect one another and learn each other’s cultural values and understand other’s religious practice, I think, we would be able to appreciate each other more.

      Yes… two men… same skin colour, looks alike, but different nationality and cultural practice, can sing the same song in harmony and could smile at each other happily without grudge. If only everyone could be like that!

        Last statement on this : definately- even those who’re of religious beliefs(any religion) sometimes falled into this, believing they’re all perfect…Woe to those who only see tahi mata in other people’s eye!
