Essay: National Unity at Integration
The Khmer Rouge and the Ku Klux Klan or better known as the KKK are the few of the many groups or clans that enjoy torturing, abusing or even annihilating people who are not of their own kind. Even sometimes these days, racial issues and conflicts often occur in our own country which we call our home. What is worse is that these problems do not only happen within adults but even among the students. The numbers of group fights that involve racism between pupils are gradually increasing in school day by day. It seems like people do not seem to care anymore for each other’s well-being. What happened to the message that was delivered by the late Michael Jackson, fondly known as the King of Pop in the song ‘Black or White’ or the song that was sung by the Black Eyed Peas in ‘Where Is The Love?’. These are the songs that tried and failed to convey a message to the people who are carrying out these immoral and beastly acts. Fortunately, there are still ways to integrate the spirit of unity in our nation. National unity can be integrated through the practice of equal rights. When this act is carried out, the majority and minority races will receive equal treatment in any form of help that is being given out. Supposedly that this practice fails to be carried out, unsatisfaction, anger and hurt that is felt by the marginalized groups or races will cause racial issues to surface and disrupt the country’s development. Should this action of treating people the way that they deserve to be, a feeling of euphoria will definitely be instilled in the hearts and minds of the multiracial citizens in Malaysia. National unity in Malaysia is definitely important as a country cannot progress without the co-operation of the people in the country. On the other hand, the government should impose heavier punishments on those people who are executing their unruly acts which are connected to hate and racism. Punishments like putting the wrongdoer into a prison cell with people of the race he dislikes or jail him for trying to disrupt the peace in the country. It is essential for this action to be carried out because once these punishments are being executed; people who are attempting to carry out their future plans will think twice before they do it. The moment these acts of nonsense cease, peace will once again be in our beloved homeland. Another way to integrate national unity in our country is by having politically stable country. The political groups in our country recently are being very competitive to form the government instead of having the people’s welfare at heart. Political parties in our land should be more concerned about the citizens’ trials and tribulations that they are facing every day. By doing that, not only the political party will contribute hugely to the integration of national unity, but it will also gain the trust of the citizens to elect the particular party to represent them as a nation. The particular party should also put their heart and soul into this as national unity is the backbone to our country’s stability and integrity. Last but not least, national unity can be achieved when parents and guardians play their parts as role models and not turn a blind eye towards this epidemic that is plaguing most countries. Fathers, mothers and even people who greatly influence children should never criticize people of other races in front of their children. According to a study made by child experts, children usually follow the characteristics and attitude of their parents or guardians. This is the main reason why parents and guardians should always be an example to their children so that when their children grow up, they will no longer have the mentality that their ethnicity is always above the other races when it comes to studies, sports or personal abilities. It is not a doubt that national unity is very important in our country. It is the one and only thing that keeps all of us bound together,...
