PETALING JAYA: Culture activist Eddin Khoo has given equal blame to politicians and the general Malaysian public for the persistence of racial politics in the country.
Speaking to FMT, he said Malaysian political discourse could not move away from considerations of race because Malaysians had defined themselves along racial lines.
“We have already decided that we want to maintain our identity rather than come together,” he said. “So we institutionalise our political parties along racial lines.”
Khoo appeared unimpressed by claims coming from such parties as DAP and PKR that they are multiracial.
