On 23 September 2012 our charismatic exPM quoted, "Tetapi mereka (Bumiputeras) belum sampai ke tahap bersaing dengan kaum lain terutama dalam bidang perniagaan dan perusahaan." at this link Suara Hati Dr. Mahathir . This is why there was that 30% Bumi quota in the first place. But now it's gone. This art work attempts to remind us all of that sentiment. The 3 Hulks represent Bumis - strong in population but only 30% equity target? The 70% is driven by non-Bumis where their small population did not stop them from advancing forward in economy - Just like the 7 Spidermen who are small but cunning and far better equiped (... than the Hulks)
