This is either blatantly racist or humorously ignorant:

Wassup Nigga

Here’s a translated transcript:

OUR PEOPLE by Shah

Malay #1: Our country feels really peaceful, we have numerous races and beliefs but can still live in harmony…
Even the foreigners would love to stay here now, since work is smooth, life is comfortable, no?…

Malay #2: That’s right…but I’m afraid with so many foreigners arriving, we are the ones who’ll end up being foreigners in our own land…

Foreigner: Yo…yo…wassup nigga…

Jeez, that’s the best you can come out with foreigner stereotypes? Using the N-word?

How did that got in one of the biggest Malaysian paper in the first place? Don’t they have like, editors and stuff?

I don’t really have any problem with the sentiments otherwise. It’s good for Malaysia to accept foreigners, we need the manpower, professional expertise and income. However, I think we sometimes give them too much face, and it’s understandable that Malaysians, especially Malays feel threatened that their country will be overrun by foreigners.

Immigrant workers have already contributed to the increasing crime rates and eyesore, whether you like it or not. The Melaka government had made the controversial decision to build Arab city areas on Pulau Melaka and Klebang.

The way this is going, one day Malaysia will be a country of xenophobes. Oops, it has already started.
