Malaysian Film Festival – Patriotism vs Racism
Contraversies surrounding the coming Malaysian Film Festival(FFM) bring into question the meaning of ‘patriotism’ and ‘racism’.
For some, its of paramount important for our film producers to share the spirit of nation building, including giving due recognition of our national language, Bahasa Malaysia.
To others, whats so significant about a language..
Others go to the extend of accusing the organisers of promoting ‘racism’.
I really wonder whether our society really understand the meaning of terms like ‘patriotism’ and ‘racism’.
