Benny Wenda’s Racism

Indonesia is known throughout the world as an ethnic melting pot. This is something we should take pride in, not be embarrassed or angered about. Despite our history of segregation and racial and religious intolerance during the New Order era, we are the most diverse country on the planet. I don’t think it is any accident that after 1998 reform we are also the most successful country on the planet either.

People like Benny Wenda and Richard Samuelson want to divide our great country into ethnic groups with special rights and privileges. If we are to move forward as a nation, towards a greater good, we need to leave these fools in the dust bins of history.

There is, unfortunately, a select group who will continue to promote racial intolerance and hatred in West Papua such as Free West Papua Campaign (FWPC) in UK. By dividing Melanesian and Indonesian, Benny Wenda makes a high tension among people who live in West Papua. There are about 300 ethnic groups in West Papua, more than 2 millions Melanesian formed by 250 tribes and 1 millions  mixed Papuan and other ethnic groups, and 1 millions people migrate from about 50 different ethnic groups live harmoniously in  the peaceful land of Papua.

This is however another thing that makes Indonesia great, the freedom to be a “jackass” if you want to be. Please be careful with the intention of Benny Wenda’s racism

    Benny Wenda, a convicted murderer should never be released. Murdering a person is one of the worst crime that can be committed. It undermines the value of life and the punishment for this should be of comparable caliber. Should the minimum punishment be life in prison, or should the person have a chance to be released.
