Spreading the Message of Interracial Friendship and Unity

Kita Kawan Mah (Hey, We're Buddies) was born in the aftermath of Malaysia's 13th General Elections, where racial tension was at an all time high. It was a period where hate-filled posts on social media sites, calling for the spilling of blood, was spreading like wildfire. And many Malaysians feared the reoccurrence of the 1969 racial riots of May 13.

We responded by creating a multi-racial community that would promote interracial friendship on-ground and online in the hopes of changing the conversation from racism and hate to friendship and hope.

We started by crafting messages of interracial friendship and unity on placards and hit the streets with them. We then took pictures and posted them on Kita Kawan Mah's Facebook page where we received thousands and thousands of likes, positive comments and shares.
