Malays Are Generally Discriminated In Multinationals In Malaysia

My cousin told me that his contract is being terminated by his company. In his team, he is the only Malay and he is the only one that is recording any sort of sales. The other member of his team are non malays and so far this year they have not recorded any sales at all. But they are not singled out to be terminated. It's the Malay sales person that has actually made his quota that is being let go.


My cousin works for a Multinational and his superior that is letting him go is, of course, non malay. It seems all multinationals in Malaysia fills up their management positions with non Malays. And his crime, is that he is born a Malay.

Malays are not seen as fit despite being able to deliver or perform with empirical evidence. But to me, it's much more than that.

Almost all multinationals in Malaysia have their regional headquarters in Singapore. And, in Singapore discrimination on Malays is an official policy.

I mean despite being 30% of the Singaporean population, Malay representation in the Singaporean Cabinet, senior civil service, senior ranking army officers, senior corporate executives are pathetic. Singaporean government has made it a point to ensure Malays are never allowed to climb the Singaporean corporate or government ladders.

So, having their regional headquarters in Singapore, these various multinationals have adopted Lee Kuan Yew's anti-Malay policies down to the last letter. They ensured that their management positions in Malaysia are Malay free just like in Singapore.

Lee Kuan Yew is Anti Malay and British Stooge

History has shown that Lee Kuan Yew's utter contempt to the Social Contract has led him to push for the Malaysian Malaysia policy thus provoking the anger of the Malay population.

Moreover, the Lee Kuan Yew policy has resulted in two race riots in Singapore in 1964. Lee Kuan Yew is well aware of the arrangement and agreement made between the two races before Merdeka yet he chose to disrespect the agreement and push for his racists policies.

Discrimination of Malays is Lee Kuan Yew's Mission in Life

He masks it as "meritocracy" but in truth if Lee Hsien Loong is not his son, he wouldn't have a chance in hell of becoming Singapore's Prime Minister. So, all the talk about meritocracy is a blatant lie and used as an excuse to keep the Malays from important positions in Singapore be it in public or private sector.

Meritocracy is a code word for "discrimination of Malays". That's the God's honest truth.

Not All Chinese are Racists

Right after the end of World War 2, the Malays were subjected to a torturous time called the "Bintang Tiga Incident". Recent historical data has shown that the incident were the handiwork of the Koumintang Chinese in Malaya.

During the Japanese Occupation of Malaya, the Chinese resistance to the Japanese were undertaken by both the Communists and the Koumintang. Unfortunately to the Malays, they cannot tell the difference between the Koumintang and the Communists factions.

The Koumintang was instrumental in stopping the Malays from emulating the resistance against the Dutch in Indonesia. In which, the Indonesians managed to drive out the Dutch by using weapons left behind by the Japanese.

The Koumintang managed to keep the Malays at bay and prevented the Malays in Malaya from openly fighting the British. As a reward, many economic opportunities were given to the Koumintang leaders.

The Communists on the other hand wanted to drive the British out of Malaya and started to attack British interests across Malaya. For that the British declared state of Emergency and used Malays to fight the Communists.

These Koumintang then put down their weapons and registered a political party called the M.C.A. They concentrated their efforts mostly on capitalizing the new economic opportunities from the British.

I believe Lee Kuan Yew is comes from the Koumintang factions seeing how he is such a subservient servant to the British colonialist agenda, much like Chiang Kai Shek.

Racial Segregation Is A British Legacy to Protect British Interest

To make long story short, UMNO, MCA and MIC are all created by the British. When all political parties are banned (especially those formed by true independence fighters like PKMM and Hizbul Muslimin) these parties are allowed to be formed and thrived.

This is because, if one looked at the plan made by the real independence fighters, they wanted to consider Malaysian Chinese and Indians as Malays. One need only to look at one of Putra-AMCJA manifesto to see that that is the real plan.

The British on the other hand wanted Malaya to remain divided among racial lines while enriching the Koumintang Chinese in Malaysia. This is to ensure Malaya/Malaysia remain weak and underdevelop. I strongly believe that one of their main stooge is Lee Kuan Yew seeing that Tunku had to let go of Singapore at the behest of the British.

Furthermore, more than once, Tun Ismail wanted to arrest Lee Kuan Yew under ISA but always prevented thanks to intervention by the British.

So, with the creation of Perikatan and all the racial parties, the country continues to be divided along racial lines.

And after Independence, both MCA and Lee Kuan Yew openly disrespect the social contract and broke their promise to the Malays in exchange for the Chinese's citizenship.

The Malays also adopted the racial mentality thinking that they too will suffer the discrimination currently being enjoyed by their Malay counterparts in Singapore.

These fear tactics are British handiwork and policies in order to protect British interest in Malaya/Malaysia.

During 13th May incident, it is dicovered that 80% of the equity in Malaysia was owned by the BRitish, while the Chinese only controlled 20%. But the bulk of the effect of the 13th May riots were beared by the Chinese in Malaya/Malaysia even though most of the victims are as poor as the Malays themselves.

If i were a Chinese I would sue the British government for the 13th May incident. I will also sue Lee Kuan Yew for being a British stooge.

As Long As Singapore Discriminate Against Malays, We Will Continue to Remain Divided

Singapore will continue to push all these Multinationals to continue adopting Singapore's anti Malay policies. Which means, all Multinationals in Malaysia will continue discriminating Malays on regular basis.

My own experience working in a MNC in Malaysia shows that I had to report to an imbecile Program manager who knows next to nothing about Project Management. But he is made a Program Manager because he is of the right skin color. The project was failing and I was employed to save the face of an imbecile who was appointed to the position because of his skin color.

And my cousin, will be out of a job this coming February simply because he is of not the right skin color. And in spite of him being the only one in his team that has actually delivered.

As long as Singapore is not destroyed, no Malays in their right mind will support meritocracy. To Malays like me, meritocracy means Malays being discriminated on systemic basis.

Actually, how do you know your cousin telling the truth?

I have a same case like yours, but only to find out my cousin lying thru its teeth that he performed well. I knew his manager and his HR, to know that he always come in late for work, go back early, no dedication etc etc.

In a lot of cases, terminating someone needs collective agreement from everyone (includes the big boss outside the country) and review all feedback. I am sure that a multinational hire and fire people fairly.

Don't jump to conclusion too early. As a Malay brother, sometimes I really feel that some of us really took advantage of praying time, friday's prayer, family issues and pregnancy period to steal some time of work for ourselves. If I had to fire someone this year, it will be those same race brothers as mine that took advantage of the company time. During work, I don't see colours, I see performance, and those you put company first over themselves will be at higher priority to be retained.

Company/Customers pays you to work. If he's got the sales, he should have got the customers' support as well. Usually as a boss, we like the feedback of the customers towards our sales personnel before we decide to fire him.

Just my 2 cents, especially in a MNC, there's only place for performers but not for those who thinks he performs.

First note there is a Col Ishak in the armed forces in Singapore. The first link is to show you his photo that he is now an Indian muslim like Mahathir calling himself a Malay. Secondly he is the commander of 6th division. This implies he has an armoured brigade as well as an artillery regiment under his control beyond thousands of men who will be mostly chinese.

Excuse me but aren't the Malays 30% of the population and all u can quote me is just one example?

Do you actually have any idea what discrimination really mean?

Anonymous said...

Col Ishak by estab rank should soon probabily from july after the SAF day become a Brigadier General. During one of the earlier national days when the Malays not being in the armed forces being hotly brought up by Malaysia and Indonesia to hide their economic failures, a Malay Major was promoted to LTC for the event (all army rank takes 6 mths to confirm). He was a logistics officer. However during the parade, when the rifles were raised to give salute to the PM I think he forgot to give the order to lower the rifles. This was not shown on TV and the soldiers who pratice the drill for 6 months quietly brought their rifles down. He blamed the stress of limelight. However he was brought down back to the major rank.

I think the singapore government bares fault as logistic officers normally do not face such pressures, however he still went through the faces of being a commisioned officer.

He was rumored to be related to the MALAY speaker of Singapore parliment Abdullah Tamugi.

Malays are 13.6% of the population. They have hovered around this number for some time. Unlike Malaysia where the Malay population has increased substantially in relation to the chinese and indian population. Their livelihood is supported by raping sabah and sarawak oil and other riches.

How many Indians and Chinese are in the Malaysian government service or hold so many top positions. I told you this once before and i will tell you this again try to solve malaysian problem first. You are going to be run by a Bugis very soon. Look at the Malays in Batam. Its Singapore who led their development. Till then the Javanese could not be bothered. You do not have the balls to talk about them because they will wack you left right centre.

I mean what about the bugis rulers of malaysia and the mingabaku of negri sembilan. Do you think rendang is a malay dish.

I am a senior VP in a MNC, a Malay, and a lot of others MNC has Malay on top also. This is just factually wrong. How many MNC do you know? I do not know, just because you saw a few, then you said a lot. If a Chinese came and said, all GLC headed by Malays, you get the same idiot feeling. When can Malaysia stop having people that talk like you? Wake up! If you are competent you are up there! If you are not, you are not going to! That's MNC. And that's why I am in a MNC not GLC. If I am a boss in GLC, everyone thinks I am politically link. Darn, can't we have someone to think broadly and not so narrowly like you!! Please do not poison your children with this mindset. The world is not about our race. The world is about who performs. Who cares about the race in MNC? We want to do a profitable business. People like you will be the first to fire!

I am not going to read this blog anymore. Some of my brothers are just that shallow. Never seen the world. Malaysia MNC is just the same as any other MNCs. Why don't you ask why MNC like to be in Penang island so much!? Because there's talent, and not because of race!

Tell me what is the % of Malays in all the MNC's management in Malaysia?

I willing to bet it's not even close to 5%.

it's a systemic discrimination of the highest order.

And the source of the discrimination policies is Singapore.

Remeber its an Indian Datuk Krishnan who discovered P. Ramlee and it was done in Singapore. Will you allow chinese or tamil to be your national language, sing in that language the national anthem which sadly most non malays today do not understand. Will you give priveleges in education funding example like children of well to do Malays low or no school fees when other kids have to work hard for it.

I mean wake up, its Malaysia which needs to clean its act first. When Goh chock tong rebutted Malaysian leaders by showing singapore malays were more affluent then their malaysian counterparts, the leaders were dumbfounded.

It was then hoped that the Malays realised that in the name of race their so called leaders were looting the country. This was woth croonies from their race and also with the Indian and chinese bussinessmen. Hence in all the poor were still suffering.

How much has PAS done to improve the standard of living of the Malays in kelantan. How many of the kelantan malays fair well in the state. However instead they need to go to KL. I mean why is a village named champa of cambodia there.

Most malays (99%) in singapore are also immigrants. The ruling family is bugis. However the johor, pahang, negri sembilan states are supposed to be under singapore. This is because singapore still pays $200000 a year to the royal family. However their temmenggong whose son beats up people if he likes is the Sultan of Johor. Likewise the the Benadhara or Mentri besar is Pahang Sultan.

Give Singapore back the lands which were conficated thanks to the British. Opps you cannot. Neither will the fact be that not for the British there will be no such thing as Malaya or malays. it would be just varied fedual states fighting with each other.

Yet at the same time you have enlighten rulers like the Agong now and the Perak Sultan. However what were they doing during the japanese occupation. Were they chasing their new masters. Well to bad they were so used to being a slave, white or yellow it did not matter as long as their slaves were there.

As much as i have an unshakable respect for Tengku, why are non royalties even a bugis royalty like Tun razak allowed to lead UMNO. Why is it till Mahathir, all were of royal blood. I mean as much as i despise him, i sympathise with him as he had to content with being a nobody. Thats why he nipped the sulatns in their buds.

Anonymous said...

Lee kwan Yew's mother is peranakan. It implies he has malays blood. Using Mahatirs's qualifications thats good enough to be a acting Malay. hence Lee kwan yew should have done so and fooled the country.

The 1969 riots was nothing more than the Bugis wayang kulit that has plauged Malay politics for centures. Add to the mix the malabaari (malaylee) who were muslim traders in malacca and you get 1969. I mean for how many centuries are the Malays going to get fooled by this. Anwar might not be the best Malay but at least he is a Malay. Even Badawi is more like tengku abdul rehamn. Yes he screwed up things. However look at the shawdow play of Mahathir repaying his master tun razak and replacing his bugis son. Luckily no 1969 repeat this time.

Wake up before its to late.

Malays in Singapore are better off. Malays are not dicriminated in MNCs. Often they look for the security og government jobs. Some Singapore departments, hospitals etc have 50% Malays. Have you seen the police force and the civil defence. Some malays grandfather, fathers have served continously.

Please have a look at the photos and tell me who many chinese and indians you can see. One can mistake the civil defence to be run by malays.

In delivery services (courier mail), malays dominate and they discriminate against not malay riders. These are the lower end indian and cinese who do not get the jobs unless their kawan is one of the riders.

The MNC i work for had a office in KL. They had to have a bumi partner. At one point in the 80s when cost in singapore was going up, they were about to close the singapore office. However when the Malay bumi partner wanted more money fr doing nothing, hence they closed the KL office instead. Hence your own bumi killing the MNCs. Today they have a jakarat office are are thinking of closing the singapore office in the long run for that.

In singapore they are free to staff talent from overseas but not Malaysia, thats why many MNCs come to singapore.

I do not know what happens in Singapore but in Malaysia MNCs prefer the Chinese over the Malays for one simple reason. A Malay no matter how good he looks on paper is the product of a system which is skewed heavily in his favour. In other words his credentials may not stand up to the test in the real world. Now, I am not saying there are no Malays who are really worth what you see in their papers. However, when you have the Malays clinging on for dear life to a system which favours them over other races what do you want these MNCs to think. MNCs are in Malaysia for one and one thing only. That thing is profit. They do not care who you are so long as you can make them profitable. The moment the profit motive disappears they are gone just like Nikko in Penang and Western Digital in Sarawak. The Malays should ask themselves if they can really take on the world without the NEP and so on. Thus far the Malays have only shown they are scared shitless of the real world. The MNCs can smell this fear. What have the Malays done so far to get rid of this smell?

Tulang Besi, you are a stupid fool who is totally ignorant of commercial realities. In this case, you are emotionally bias because your cousin is complaining of being 'victimized'.

CEO and GMs see the bigger picture and sometimes drop seemingly profitable products and staff for to maintain profit for the whole. Your cousin could be a part of such a strategy. If there is any unfairness, there is always a recourse to the industrial courts.

Having top management experience in MNC, I am fully aware that the last thing any management would do it is to be get rid of someone who can contribute PROFITABLY and effectively to the bottom line.
The contrary to the above may have happened, but such a CEO or GM will not survive for long in any MNC.

99.9% of MNCs invest in foreign countries for the main purpose of generating profits to their parent companies whiltst in compliance with local laws and managing constraints. They are not charitable organizations.

Humans are generally ethnocentric, but for MNCs, but profits and efficiency will always override any racial discrimination.

The real facts is; the hardworking staff in the MNCs are the victims of discrimination. The staff contribute their blood, sweat and tears while some bloody leg shaker leech just suck off 30% of the profits doing nothing! If not for the 30% leak, the staff could have been entitled to higher bonus. This is a personal experience.

In truth, it's the British stooge in the form of UMNO, MCA and MIC that's to be blamed. They were installed to ensure that the country's wealth remains in the hands of the British.

After all, UMNO MCA and MIC are all creations of the British. So what is there to be surprise of. They are just doing what their masters wants them to do.

That's your problem, you're overseas. You don't have the faintest idea what's going on here.

The MNC's wants profits from all their enterprise. So, they see that Singapore is the best model for this region for maximum profits.

They emulate all of Singapore's programs including discrimination of Malays.

Simple as that.

MIC then and now have never really been important. The british had a divide and rule policy. When will you all chin peng and the rest of the CPM who scarificed themselves for their motherland to come back. Will it expose that tun razak was working with the japanese. His memory pictorial shows him doing so. In that memeory that say the malay rulers were helping the anti japanese movement secretly. The so called help and movement must be secretive as nothing came out of it.

I mean maathir was selling goreng pisang. No one is taking the blame away from UMNO or MCA but in UMNO the bugis and malabar connection went on to use the situation for their advantage to destroy the country. Yes people were misled, will PAS and PKR with DAP correct it.

I give you a simple solution, chance all the race identites to malay then you are okay. An MNC is a foreign organisation. Some will not even one a local to head it. An example is the japanese organisations.


Tell me this einstein,is the fact that Malays are 56% of the population but makes up less than 5% of MNC's management a coincidence?

Anyone with a fully functional brain will tell u that something is amiss and has to be resolved.

Tulang Besi,
Leaving your lesson in History aside, you seem to have an in-built hatred for anything Singapore and
hence your emotionally charged article.
Quite frankly, your cousin's disposition would not have stirred up many comments, but your accusation that MNC's do not employ Malays does.
If you look at the employment ratio in the government services and the GLCs, you will notice that more than 90% of the positions are held by Malays with some lowly jobs given to the few (un)lucky Indians and Chinese. In fact, I have worked for a GLC and I know how it is to feel demoralized because of the colour of one's skin, and I fully sympathize with you. When the GLC under which I worked changed hands sometime back, most of the non-malays were asked to accept the VSS. So stop whining about your cousin and of the few opportunities you have in MNCs.

Tulang Besi,
I see you now has got the true picture. That why I said that malays in Malaysia must unite. With malay vote divide into 3, we are going to be further discriminated. Look at the unemployment of malay graduates compared to the non-malays. When malays parties like PAS and PKR started to question the NEP, Malay rights etc, the respect to the malay communities goes down the drain. Prior to that, these MNC would felt uneasy if they have all chinese but now, what the heck....

So does that justify the blatant discrimination of Malays in MNC's?

The GLC is a tool of UMNO to keep their electorate happy. That is why they kept the GLC's predominantly MAlay

Besides, if it wouldn't for the GLC's where will the Malays work? The MNC and the Private sector discriminates the Malays to the max.

I am against discrimination as Islam teaches the value of meritocracy.

But Singapore is anything but a meritocrasy. It's a sham. That's what it is.

Tulang besi i am the guy from the earlier long posts. The guy who posted this look PKR and PAS are trying to clean what a rotten UMNO which is moving towards the bankrupt country.

If you see your friends taking ganja and some other malays come by, would you tell lets not complain to the police as it would make malays look like ganja addicts. No else all the malays will become ganja addicts. Today the NEP and the so called privileges are the ganja and you are like an addict saying please do not take it away from me. Malays need the cold turkey and need to feel the pain. The government must help soften the pain. However no pain, no gain.

If you really think you are bumiputra, should you not tell yourself you will be better and work harder. I mean do you continusly want the malay community to be having the handicap sticker stuck to them.

As tulang besi says if malays are discriminated, then they should go start and build their own MNC. Thats want many people have did. Toyota, Honda are now beating their american rival hands down. Do the japanese cry that oh my country is destroyed, i cannot wake up. No they have showed they are the real bumiputra.

Learn to integrate the chinese and Indians. This should be vice versa. I woek in an american MNC. Most locals do not succed to high positions after 30 years because they do not understand their culture. you need to adapt. How can an Iranian be the boss of OXY or Occidential or a tamil be the boss of pepsi.

Amuraria, why work for them. How many with all the government help will start their own company. Mohamed mustaffa in Singapore started as a small shop selling elctronics good cheaply. At that time orchard road in Singapore is where most tourist came. Today he owns almost a street and its so hard to walk in his shop. They also run 24hrs and there are busses that cater to transit passengers to go to mustaffa and come back.

Today its more popular then orchard road. Orchard road which was dominated by chinese, japanese and european shopping centres have lost out.

You forget that it was the government that set up the GLCs not UMNO and with government funds not UMNO funds.

Have you considered the possibility that the best of the Malays were being employed by the GLCs and hence only the second best are available for the MNCs?

Quite frankly I think that most Malays have come out of their shells and are quite independent. Many have performed well in their respective rolls and have been well rewarded. Why do a few go around with a chip on their shoulders finding faults with the Corporations. Isn't it a challenge for you to try harder instead of expecting everything on a silver plate.

Good or bad, right or wrong, true or untrue, this story just reflects the symptom of a deep sickness in Malaysia -- the tendency to view people as 'other' than yourself.

It manifests in racism, religious exclusivity, class distinctions, etc.

Does it has to be always proportional? You are assuming everything will fall under normal distribution. There could be special causes to it.

Since you are talking about MNCs, let’s focus on MNCs. I have met many GMs, Plant Managers or CEOs from MNC. Apart from related paper qualification, they also worked in oversea for years which gave them a wider global prospective. In short, they earned their places where they are now.

Let’s look locally, for the few MNCs I have worked in, the Malay are generally lack on paper qualification which usually required by MNCs for promotion. On top of this, most of them do not speak proper English (let alone writing a decent proposal or report). In addition, most of them lack of communication skill and self-driven attitude. Most importantly, they can’t endure pressure. Some told me personally about this and eventually, they turned down the promotion opportunity.

Certainly, there are good Malay employees in MNCs but there are too few.




Yup, the Malays tend to populate the lower ranking, difficult jobs departments that many Singaporeans do not want to work there anyways.

Have you gave a long hard thought why this happened instead of saying this is an act of discrimination imposed on the Malay?


My families in Singapore had to settle for crappy jobs despite being qualified. Plus, they will remain doing crappy jobs until the day they retire knowing that promotion will never happen on the count of their skin.

In a real world, qualified or not, will be judged by others(not ourselves).

All i know there are more senior Chinese and Indians civil servants as compared to senior civil servants in Singapore.

Conveniently, you don’t talked figures or statistics.

Anonymous said...

The author is just in his own world. We and everyone else should move on, work harder to climb the corporate ladders instead of whining being discriminated.

If someone can label themselves as qualified (without others reckoning), it is a bit useless to continue arguing with this kind of person isn't it?

Darn, why do I even write this comment?!

Vinson said...

I usually find your posts entertaining and this is no different.

This time however, I disagree with your view although I believe that you fully believe in what you right and so does the majority of Malays.

This is where the problem lies.

I don't know if that majority of upper level mgmt in MNCs are non-Muslims, as I used to work for an MNC and they had alot of great Malay upper level managers, I will just take your word for it at this time.

Why do I disagree with you is based on simple irrefutable fact, a universal rule that cannot be denied:

MNCs need to make money!

Therefore, your cousin's incident is probably fabricated (in that he is the only one who made sales), or that this is an exception to the rule (that an MNC would actually fire a person who performed in this economy based on his skin color).

I can understand your feelings about this, as non-Malays feel the same way about Government jobs in the government and GLCs.

The difference in Government jobs though is that, let's be honest, 99% of the post, whether top or lower level, invariably goes to Malays, REGARDLESS of their performance.

The need to perform or to produce results in less of a question than the need to bodek or to read gossips about Siti Nurhaliza's love life.

The reason there are less Malays in MNC than Chinese or Indians speaks volume about the Malays work ethics. This is not a racial thing, this is the years of education at a local university, or the years of being spoon fed by a government policy that spoils the Malays rotten. We all know how a spoilt child acts : Always thinking they are right, and always demanding without looking at their own behaviour.

Please know that all the professionals in MNCs in Malaysia are not narrow minded bigots who have an agenda against a particular race. Malays, Chinese and Indians in MNC mgmt positions are usually bright ppl, regardless of their race and they know what they are doing. They are answerable to the shareholders, or to their superiors in HQ, and if your cousin is telling the truth, then his boss will have a hard time.

Therefore, I suggest you know the situation more properly before blasting off.

Further to this, comparing Malaysia to Singapore is utterly silly because you are indirectly hinting that Singapore is doing something right (discrimination against Malays) since they are obviously a much richer and developed and successful country than us despite having little natural resources.

I suspect your cousin must've been in a Singaporean company like F&N, am I right? If his behaviour is good, and his performance is good, trust me, no manager who is smart enough will let him go, they will keep him.

In the meantime, it is good to bring such thoughts in the open as I assure you, whatever you are thinking about the non-Malays, the non-Malays are thinking the same thing about the Malays. In the end, sape untung?

God only knows.

Your view is not fair in this post.

Anonymous said...

I do believe TB is writing based on his very own perception. It may not be accurate though.

My guess is its the fault of the middle managers in the case of his cousin. Yes the management will want to ensure the company is profitable above all else, but there is no stopping the middle managers to cook up his/her report to make him look good even to the detriment of his subordinates. A case of taking the credit is very normal in a large organisation.

I worked in a large GLC/MNC (yes, our own MNC) before, although the very top management is predominat malays, there are a number of subsidiaries headed by non malays. I personally observed the non malay managers 'suppressing' the performing malay subordinates. But theres also cases of malay managers who seem to have the habit of taking credit unfairly.

Its not just the case of malays being discriminated against in multinationals, this is a racial thing, and its not a chinese against malays and vice versa. Ive seen government departments where the boss is indian, the indians are prevalent in his department.

Iv been to job interviews where I did very well in the very technical tests yet the job was given to the not so 'quatified' chinese candidate. But Ive come to accept the fact that perhaps the boss is more comfortable working with that candidate rather than me. Its not just technical superiority that determines the outcome of the job interview. Even though its the largest microprocessor company in the world Im talking about.

See what did I tell u. Whenever someone talks about race discrimination, it's always negated with the excuse of meritocracy.

TEll me, when my cousin is removed from the MNC while being the onle one able to record any sales, is he not supposed to be rewarded merit-wise, instead of being sacked?

This is a real life discrimination example I am quoting. And it's blatant discrimination.

I never raised the issue of race supremacy at all in my article.

All the time, whenever Malays are discriminated the excuse of meritocracy is cited in order to shut up those doing the exposing.

In fact there are more Indian MNC CEO than Malays in Malaysia.

THat alone is a strong acid test of MNC's fair treatment of Malays in Malaysia.

When was the last time you saw a Malay Carrefour store manager?

I am confused. Should meritocracy be cited to stem all effort to expose Malay discrimination in MAlaysia?

What has meritocracy got to do with Malay discrimination? I cited 2 real life examples where meritocracy is thrown out the window against Malay.

It's a systemic phenomenon and there is clear evidence of Malay discrimination by MNC's.

All of you cannot convince me otherwise because i and my cousin has first hand experience of this nonsense.

Tulang Besi,

I was at a dinner in Manila last year and I was asked this interesting question by an owner of a Filipino fertiliser company. He asked me why all the top regional heads of multinational fertilizer companies in Asia were Malaysians?

I had a simple answer for him...it is because Malaysians are highly educated, multi-lingual, adaptable and manage easily in multi-cultural work environment.

For sure, your cousin has been disciminated against not because the colour of the skin, but whats inside......I don't mean to put your cousin down, but if he was that good and brought in the sales and had the customers in his fingertips, he could easily have taken the customers to another MNC or GLC etc...If he was such a hot shot, the headhunters would have been waiting to offer him a better package elsewhere...sometimes, people do not understand, why only Chinese need to apply for jobs?? Simple the job requires interaction with Chinese customers and if you do not speak Chinese how can you do the job...

ElectricityMahal said...

I agree with Tulang Besi that Malays are discriminated against in MNCs. There is an overriding unfair perception that Malays are lazy and corrupt, which is not true of course. Be it Malay, Chinese or Indian -- there are always those who are honest and work hard, and those who are lazy and corrupt. I think this unfair perception has come about due to UMNO's racist politics and policies over the past 30 years. The best way to overcome this false perception of Malays is to abolish NEP and practice meritocracy at all levels, starting from school level.

I think Singapore government is even more authoritarian and there is very little freedom of speech there. In a strange kind of way, we could say that Singapore government and its policies are the reverse of Malaysian government and its policies. The main difference is that there is no NEP in Singapore and therefore less corruption.

You have to give the Singapore government credit for running a tight ship there. The leadership is obviously stronger and more stable. Malaysia needs some competent and able leaders to step up to the plate now.

UMNO is not the answer. It's not willing to change its politics of hate, racism and corruption. Malaysians already sent a clear message on March 8, 2008, but UMNO leaders are either deaf or just refusing to listen. The writing is very much on the wall for UMNO.

How do you explain the previous 3 malays who suffers the same fate as my cousin. And their sin: delivering their quota on time.

What's my cousin's sin? he had the numbers and he's the only one singled out to be removed?

Headhunters? Where have u been? The economy is slowing down to a halt. Even the headhunters are worried about their own jobs.

WaveSailor said...

TB

You have to start with the Malays being the most corrupt, lazy, uneducated, abusive and stupid race in Malaysia. OR at least that's how 'they' see us.

We have to dismiss the fact that SOME of our people are extremely successful or at least doing as good as other non-Malays.

These are of course partially no-less than stereotyping especially when we have all of our Malay top leaders setting a bad image to the general public. Numbers & figures would be useless against stereotyping.

But then again, I believe an issue like this will bring more attention when brought forward by some non-Malay, who has sympathy to the Malays being discriminated in the MNCs.

Otherwise people would simply judge you as being a whiner.

Anonymous said...

TB,

Too bad for your cousin and his friends...that is the reality of life...perceptions, prejudices cannot be changed overnight. The fact is NEP has done a great disservice to the Malays. Let me tell you another story. I have a foreign businessman friend who was keen to look for a JV partner in Malaysia last year. You know what? His embassy told him to look only for Malaysian Chinese partners because they were serious business people and could be counted on to deliver.

Educated Malays like yourselves should put pressure on the government to eliminate NEP and other non-meritocratic practices. How could anyone treat you equally if your community is "perceived" to be surviving on handouts and bailouts from the government?

Believe me, once Malaysia practices meritocracy, we will be a great nation.....you have seen it happening...so many of our small and medium industries are world leaders in their own fields but guess what, almost all of them are owned by non-Malays? Why?

You know the answer....

BTW, headhunters are still out there...yes in diminishing numbers..in fact, I dare say there is shortage of competent managers in many industries...

ElectricityMahal said...

I forgot to add, while I was working at Astro sometime back, my immediate boss was a Malay. He was one of the best bosses I ever had -- hardworking, innovative and understanding. Some of my programmer colleagues at Astro were Malay and they were some of the smartest and most-fun bunch of programmers I have every worked with in Malaysia. In fact, I still miss them sometimes.

I have a Malay friend who runs his own open-source IT company in Selangor that is doing really well and he is truly an expert at what he does.

Also, look at Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, he is an excellent example of a Malay who made good through his own brains and hard work. Unfortunately, for every 1 Datuk Zaid Ibrahim there are 10 Ahmad Ismail cronies who depend on handouts and bailouts from UMNO.

To me, it has never been about race in Malaysia, there are good apples and bad apples in every community. If you think about it, what is "race" really? Thousands of years ago, all our ancestors came from a single location based in Africa. So why are we so hung up on race in Malaysia?

I've always believed that Malaysians are not racists, we are not born racists -- it's the politicians who have created this mess at the expense of the rakyat.

If Malaysia wants to progress and its people live in peace and harmony, all the races must be combined into a single Bangsa Malaysia. No more Malay, Indian, Chinese, etc. -- just One Bangsa Malaysia.

ElectricityMahal said...

One last example... when Malaysian government said they were going to send a Malaysian into space, all my friends said straight away that a Malay would be chosen after the astronaut trials. Why this perception? Was it a fair perception?

Ingat dulu kalau dalam surat khabar...syarikat swasta akan letak syarat "Proficient In Mandarin"...berlangsung bertahun-tahun ...lepas Najib suruh buang syarat itu barulah kurang diletakkna dalam iklan.

Saya bekerja di sebuah syarikat penerbitan buku akademik di selangor. Syarikat ini boleh dikatakan sebagai syarikat yang senior dalam bidang ini. Sudah puluhan tahun beroperasi. Walaupun majoritinya pekerja Melayu tetapi tuan punya dan pasukan pengurusan diketuai bukan Melayu. Memang ada diskriminasi baik dari segi jumlah gaji mahupun kenaikan pangkat atau kenaikan gaji tahunan.

Bukan setakat itu, penggunaan bahasa kebangsaan pun dipinggirkan oleh pihak pengurusan. Buktinya segala surat, dokumen menggunakan bahasa Inggeris. Maka tidak hairanlah jika bahasa kebangsaan di negara ini hanya fasih dituturkan oleh orang Melayu dan pendatang asing sahaja! Bahasa kebangsaan bagi kaum lain selain bahasa ibunda mereka ialah bahasa Inggeris.

It proves the blacks majority cant run the farms, the whites can do it! Even if 1% of the population, what they did works!!!

Same with Malaysian MNCs, they just look for the most profitable entities, MNCs are beholden to their bosses in US and Europe, do you seriously think they have time to play all these games about discrimnations and quotas ????

"Malays Are Generally Discriminated In Multinationals In Malaysia"

Generally discriminations do happen and it will happens everywhere.

But to say that global MNCs discriminate solely based on race factor is purely stupid and lack critical thinking.
Managers in MNCs must apply global management principles to survive, not racist thoughts. For a start, read up Michael Porter's, Competitive Strategy, and Thomas Friedman's 'The World is Flat.."

Note Deng Xiaoping,

I'm not saying that Malays in Malaysia don't face any problems getting jobs here as do the Chinese and Indians, but lets deal with the real issues of why and not just spout hyperbole.
You can talk all you want about Singapore etc. but you live in Malaysia why not talk about the problems faced here by the people of Malaysia and what can be done to solve the problems here instead of indulging in hyperbole and racially misguided missives.

more important question is that, when you are in mgmt or going to be, will you have a payback time to fire the non-malays?

if you want fairness, be fair to others too and your comment as well.

i worked in Citi and a local bank. i saw malays in senior mgmt eg; citi, hsbc, stanchart but i don't see non-malays senior mgmt in BIMB, Bank Pertanian and many more GLCs.

are we going to sulk and cry over the whole thing? of course not, just move on and climb the ladder and prove yourself.

dear tulang besi,
you have forgotten about corporate culture in your observation.Profit deliverence by a staff in MNC is not the only consideration.Only Malays who can socialise like the non Malays will move up the ladder meaning you must drink liquor,partying and go for night life.MNCs cannot tolerate people who loves religion especially the Islamic one and time has to be set aside for prayers during office hours.They expect you to go for prayers only on Sundays because they have declared that as universal public holidays.The rest of working days belong to the MNCs because they pay you and own you.Am I being cynical, yes!Try to be goody goody and religious and don't drink and enjoy like they do,you will be segregated.Know what I mean???????????

this blog is very stupid and is a waste of my time. Tulang, you are a very bitter person with no success in Singapore. thats why you create hatred by running this blog against singapore. I suggest that you and your family head back to Malaysia where you can become first class citizen (malay) and you will not have similiar problems. Why are you still staying in spore when you are constantly unhappy. In singapore, race is not an issue but more about performance and brain. I think you might have performance but not brain. We need brain to outwit in this competitive spore market. Peace be with you.

Your cousin could have been a loser and instead of examining his weaknesses he decided well it's convenient to say it was a racist move because it saves his ego from being hurt.

Please open your eyes (and brain). Whatever Malays in Singapore achieve, it is through their own effort OK. They don't need help from the system just because of their race. They don't have to get benefits through a discriminatory system which discriminates other races. They can be proud of what they have achieved even though there are still many social challenges. As compared to Malays in Malaysia who had handouts, quotas in schools etc....where is the pride? Even with bumiputera policies they are not progressing much to catch up with the Chinese. Instead they now have an entitlement mentality and are not motivated to compete, and have a siege mentality.

So please use your brain. Also do not be such a loser as to blame every failure on race. Examine yourself, your own failure, weaknesses and BUCK UP. Stop whining, it is because of Malays with attitudes like yours that some problems remain tough to solve.

Gosh, u really belong to the stone age. I pitty you brother...at least get your facts right, like 30% Malay???? And work on your evidence, like LKK has the power to decide MNC's policy???? LLK's only mission is to discriminate Malays, you mean he has nothing better/ bigger to think about??? I hope God have mercy on you and steer you to the right path. Don't end up mental ok...just work hard and learn more about the world and see the bigger picture bro...peace be with you.
