I just cannot understand why the Chinese DAP supporters scream and shout about corruption. They say the Malay, UMNO government is so corrupt and Malaysia needs to be saved. They say the Malay, UMNO government is a kleptocracy. They praise the Chinese, Singapore government and say unless the Chinese take over the government Malaysia is doomed.
The news reports above are examples of what you read daily in the Malaysian news. And the impression you get from reading these types of news every day is that Malays are downright corrupt. But what many seem to overlook is that while the Malays may be the recipient, the givers are most times Chinese.
It takes two hands to clap. The Chinese give and the Malays receive. So, Malays might be corrupt, but does this make the Chinese any less corrupt?
If the Chinese are so concerned about corruption and wish to remove the Malay, UMNO government because it is so corrupt, then stop giving bribes. Why scream about corruption and say the Malay, UMNO government is so corrupt but at the same time most corruption cases involve Chinese as the givers.
LIM KIT SIANG NOW TOLERATES CORRUPTION SINCE IT HELPS DAP STAY IN POWER
What are the biggest corruption cases in Malaysian history and who are behind them?
Abdullah Ang, George Tan, Tan Koo Swan, Brian Chang, Eric Chia, Ling Liong Sik, Patrick Lim, Jho Low, Ting Pek Khiing, Vincent Tan, Francis Yeoh, etc., are all Chinese. And this is just the tip of the iceberg, the 10% that you see, not the 90% that is hidden below the surface.
So, enough lah with this Malays are corrupt mantra. Maybe there are one or two cases of Malays bribing Chinese, such as in the Penang undersea tunnel case. But then there are also cases of Chinese bribing Chinese, such as in the Lim Guang Eng bungalow with no swimming pool case.
Corruption is not about race. Corruption is about greed. And while we do have greedy Malays who, as Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said, want free money the easy way, there are many more greedy Chinese who would rather bribe their way to becoming rich.
And if you want to play the race card so can we. China also has a bad record when it comes to corruption. So, show me one Malay in China has been arrested and charged for corruption.
