Ethnic Politics

Where has nationalism gone? What happened to national identity and patriotism? When will we ever grow up as a nation and learn to see and think outside the box. To say that the prominence and eligibility of the country's top posts be determined along ethnicity alone in the name of power-balancing scares the living daylight out of me.

Come on, let's face up with reality. Any suggestions in supportive of such notion is an absolute deterrent to national unity at the political level, let alone the grassroots level. Its time we bring common sense back into our vocabularies.

Big respect.
