As in the Oxford dictionary - Races made up of or relating to people of many races while ethnic -relating to a population subgroup (within a larger or dominant national or cultural group

As in Malaysia population - made of mainly Malay, Chinese and Indian races which differ in ethnic cultural and religious differences.

Therefore, I stand politically corrected, right?

Meanwhile there are similar protests by Malaysians all over the world - From US to UK, Australia to New Zealand, Hong Kong and Taiwan. For some of the uploads found in youtube - Overseas Bersih and for what "Bersih" is all about - http://www.usj.com.my/bulletin/uploa...verseas-Bersih

Meanwhile, this was in Times Square, New York
