Malaysian Indians have always had it difficult when it comes to looking for a place to stay, as many homeowners tend to discriminate based on race to a point where it’s become a normal thing.

But now, this appears to have bled into the job market as well.

Netizen, Design with VNK, took to their TikTok page to showcase how they tried to apply for a teaching position only to be told that the employer was only looking for Chinese candidates.

In the post, they decided to show their interest in the position by sending a WhatsApp to the person in charge (PIC) of receiving applications, only to be told that they were only looking for Chinese candidates.

“Sorry, we are looking for Chinese teachers,” the PIC shared.

“Yes, Chinese teachers are very capable in every aspect and every subject. And it is so pathetic and racist, when I see your reply. You better add your so-called ‘Chinese teacher only’ (condition) in your insensible job description,” they responded.

Just like how property agents are only doing the bidding of homeowners, the PIC shared that they were only doing as their employer asked.

“Sorry, I didn’t mean to be insulting. I was just advertising for my boss,” the PIC said.

What makes this worse is that the platform where Design with VNK stumbled upon the job opening, labeled them as a ‘strong applicant’ for the position.

This is the second time Design with VNK is posting about this incident as their initial post was taken down by the social media platform.

“I don’t know how many of you are going thought this. I am going through this almost every day! Everywhere, Chinese only. What does this mean?”

“Why are we Malaysians not looking for qualifications and experience? Why are only Indians having this problem everywhere? I know many of you are going to say that all of this is normal, to just move on and look for another job. Are we normalising this? I hope everyone treats everyone equally,” Design with VNK previously shared.


Considering the fact that many award-winning teachers in Malaysia are Malaysian Indians, we genuinely do hope that people learn see beyond the colour of one’s skin and the unjust stereotypes.
