After we now all the factors of being racist..it surely will cause some effects..
So, before I specify every single point into a category,
Let me share with all of you the biggest effect of racism happened in our country a long time ago...
And I know...
Without mention that tragedy, every people already know it....



THE MAY 13TH TRAGEDY

Okay...Let me explain to you...what is the May 13th tragedy actually..
The May 13 Incident is a term for the Sino-Malay sectarian violences in Kuala Lumpur, which began on May 13, 1969. The riots led to a declaration of a state of national emergency and suspension of Parliament by the Malaysian government, while the National Operations Council (NOC or Majlis Gerakan Negara, MAGERAN) was established to temporarily govern the country between 1969 and 1971.

Officially, 196 people were killed between May 13 and July 31 as a result of the riots, although journalists and other observers have stated much higher figures. Other reports at the time suggest over 2,000 were killed by rioters, police and Malaysian Army rangers, mainly in Kuala Lumpur. Many of the dead were quickly buried in unmarked graves in the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital grounds by soldiers of Malaysian Engineers.( Source : Wikipedia )

Huhuu...you see! In less than 3 months, 196 lives were lost...such a huge numbers!
So, to all readers and followers..
If this spirit of racism continues, it is possible this incident will be repeated...
