Tonight, we unpack Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's controversial remarks on the cultural assimilation of non-Malays in the country. First, we look at the claims he made about the Malaysian Chinese community, and how racial dynamics have shaped our politics. Then, we discuss cultural assimilation in the region, and whether it really ought to be an aspiration for the Malaysian society.
