Both are accused by The Star of being racists.
Wong Chun Wai accuses politicians of being racists.
Now another article featured currently in The Star Online believes that the media and bloggers are “spewing racial slurs” too.

The latest Malaysian First article, which can presently be read in the Star Online, is titled ‘Be a Malaysian First before anything else‘.
It is accompanied by a cutesy photo of multiracial (presumably) Malaysian kids captioned “May our children and our children’s children continue to coexist in love, peace and harmony”.
This Jerusubang Star is never-ending in its evangelical mission to teach us LOVE, PEACE and HARMONY (“to come together as one”).

The Malaysian First article (23 May 2013) in the Star Online goes:
“And it doesn’t help matters when politicians and the media (blogs included) join the fray by spewing racial slurs and blaming other races of lacking in multiracial spirit. Regrettably, matters got a little bit out hand after the 13th General Election recently when the Malaysian Chinese were singled out by certain quarters for being ungrateful. Unsurprisingly, Malaysian Chinese took offense to that.”
The article continues:
“One thing’s for sure: playing up the racial card will never get us anywhere as a nation. If anything, now’s the time for Malaysians — regardless of race, religion and economic background — to come together as one.”
And the article concludes with a piece of advice:
“No doubt, it’s a long road ahead for Malaysia where racial unity is concern. But we need to start somewhere and we need to start now. Let us embrace in our hearts and minds what Canadian writer Margaret Atwood once wrote: “I hope that people will finally come to realize that there is only one ‘race’ — the human race — and that we are all members of it.”
Our Lesson for the Day taught by The Star is which we must all remember that “there is only one ‘race’ — the human race”.

If they behave and be good monkeys, one day they’ll reach the end of their race up the evolutionary ladder and achieve humanhood.
But in the meantime, please take a queue number.
