It seems nowadays more and more Malays boys are hooking up with Chinese girls. Is there anything wrong with that in my opinion, well no.
Hey it’s their choice and it’s their life. But is there a cause for concern long term wise, when a growing number of our Melayu boys would rather date outside their race? Well yeah
In fact half the Malays boys whom I’m friends would only date Chinese girls. Here’s what I mostly observed about these boys who share a common trait.
Well educated, highly independent person, their family background; inter-racial marriages are common among their family and they’re from, middle to high income families.
Well I mentioned there’s a cause for concern as we have more inter-racial marriages, our very own Melayu culture might be diluted and lost along the way as each generation passes on with such inter-racial marriages.
The Japanese themselves, rich in culture, truly oppose such inter-racial marriages. That’s why their culture stood the test of time over thousands of years and will do so for many more years. They even have the term to categorize such person who married their own, Gaijin, which literally means ‘outside person’.
Yes it’s true the Malays is still a young race; marginalized at times but we still have our culture. Who here have never visited the Malay Heritage Centre? Well you should, it has plenty of historical records of our rich Malay history
I recalled watching Sepet once. I remembered a scene where the main girl character mentioned it’s about upgrading of status when these guys starts to date outside of their race. I began to wonder the rationale behind this statement
I mean what goes through these boys minds.
Probably the boys sub-consciously unknowingly thinking that by dating a Chinese girls, where the majority chinese runs the country, they might think, it might be the answer to their problems in terms of not wanting to be marginalized, excluded or improve their social status vs. economic status. Like I said, upgrading of status
Well for me I do know what goes through mine. For me, I don’t really mind dating someone who is not a Malay, but I don’t really exclude it to just one race.
To me dating is dating, simple as that. No racial bullshit issue in the mix. It’s more about self-understanding and identification.
Am I a racist then if I don’t give my blessing to my children let’s say in the future, to not date outside their race?
Hmmm well that’s another issue … it’s so complicated these days eh
