|The Federal Constitution|
But there is no mention of Malay supremacy in the Malaysian Federal Constitution. Rather, Article 153 of the Federal Constitution does grant the Malays a special position in the reservation of quotas in respect of services, permits, etc like scholarship quotas.
The ketuanan Melayu battle-cry is not really nice. It reminds one of the Aryan supremacy of Hitler.
Nowadays, is there such a thing as a pure race? A recent study by Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) has shown that nowadays there is no such a thing as a pure Malay race.
The three year study involving 50,000 volunteers and 5 sub-ethnic Malay groups reveals that their genetic make-up comprises some 28% of Proto-Malay (orang asli Melayu), Semang and Indian DNA, at least 20% Malay DNA and surprise (?!) 52 % Chinese DNA!
"The finding corresponds with a theory that these Malays originated from Austronesia in Yunnan, China," professor Zilfalil Alwi of USM said, "with the first wave of migration from Austronesia in 25,000 BC and the second one in 1,500 BC"
"Modern Malays are an admixture of races," he added, "Nowadays, you can't tell the difference whether someone is Chinese or Malay by appearance alone."
I believe that nowadays there is no such a thing as a pure race, not even the Chinese race.
