It’s ironic how he condemns racism then for the last 10 minutes makes racist comments about Asian people. Grow up

Big Thanks to Dr. Leong (M.D.) for the timely reminder. Next, we need to remind all the polticians that Malaysia is a Secular country. As many of our politicians thinks Malaysia is an Islamic state. Therefore stop confusing the confused Malaysians.

Bias may be international and not just perceived to be limited to racism or just be in one country.
Bias has many forms which can include RACE-RELIGION [includng its many versions]-GENDER [male/female/transgender]-NATIONALITY [local/foreign]-LOCALITY [urban/rural]-EDUCATION [highly or low qualified/illitrate-STATUS IN SOCIETY [leader/follower]-WEALTH [rich and poor]- PROFESSIONS [elite/others]-
SKIN COLOR [fair/dark]-POLITICAL AFFLIATION [rulers/oppositions/APPOINTEES]-AFFLIATIONS [clubs/professions]-EMPLOYTMENT POSITIONS [government service/private sectors/semi/judiciary/enforcement/etc]
In some countries some cases of biaseness can lead to violence.

ALL MUST LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT AND ADJUST TO REALITY

Be safe Bless all
