Malaysians are generally very careful and selective when the topic of conversation involves more than one race. We always try our best to be respectful and not offend our fellow multicultured Malaysians.

“How many Malays can actually afford it?” said Hamidah.

As an Umno Wanita delegate, you’d think she is just carrying out her duty to fight for the rights of Malays but many netizens have criticized her for her approach and choice of words.

Well, I don’t know about you but my only reaction is…
