Race: __________

So we don't have to fill in the "Race:" field in official forms now. Good isn't it? Well it's a step in the right direction, right? Well except for a teensy caveat:

However, it is understood that some forms will continue to have the category in relation to special privileges for Bumiputras.
What this says to me is: "We don't really need to know what your race is, except when we do." And let's not kid ourselves: Most of the time, we can tell from the name. There has been no change in the policies of our great nation. It's business as usual. I can't even honestly describe it as a step in the right direction. More like a glance, and maybe a wink? But I guess that is still good thing. *golfclap*
