Does races influence the criteria in choosing your partner?

Post by Iria Claire on Sat Nov 01, 2008 11:04 pm

I just want to know your opinion. Recently, I saw the Dayaks, Malay, Chinese and other races tend to couple with their own races, Why? Does it because naturaly they tend to interest to their own races ( which have almost have same attitude, or maybe some similarities in their genes). Some people says, if someone marry with other races or from people in other countires, they will have brilliant children ( because of genetic drift?). Really? We are Malaysia, MAH! Different races and different tradition.
Thank you!

There is no significant statistical proves about this. Anyways, I'm having a mixed ethnicity partner. NOTE THAT, there is NO RACE among human.

I don't think that affects the intelligence of the children :D
Rather their upbringing? Maybe what you suggested was based on different ways of raising children, based on race? I have no idea, feedback on this one please?

Race is coined for the sole purpose of discrimination..

Lolx. Make sure you know what is race and ethnicity. Malaysia and US is the only country in this whole freaking world using the word "race" to differentiate peoples, which is very offending. Take anthropology and you'll know why.

Forbes and Mead (in Noon & Blyton, 1997:169) said "the current situation is that the law recognizes an ethnic group as one which
has a long shared history and a cultural tradition of its own, and that this might be identified through characteristics such as: a common geographical origin, a common language, a common literature, a common religion and the characteristics of being a minority in a larger community”.


A certain group of people will come to an understanding as to what racial/ethnic differences are of relevance when it comes to distinguishing themselves from others
. The concept of race has been discredited by sciences although it is still used today in a political sense.

Some people behave as though clearly identifiable groups do exist (e.g. leads to racism). Because of this problem, the concept of ‘race’ has been debunked and to a certain extent, it has been replaced by ‘ethnicity’.

Its ethnicity which we're saying here, not race. Using the word race is incorrect.

True enough, which one do you think has more racism issue though? Malaysia or US?

Back to topic, I'll date anyone regardless of the ethnicity, but if we were to get serious, and religion comes into question, then we'll think about it then. Maybe that's how I was brought up. Now I'm not saying that I'm the most religious person alive, I'm just not ready yet to switch my religion if things do come along our way. Dilemma.

Human did not got isolated from each another groups long enough to "evolve" into some other types of form, then if having doing so you'll only get a new "race". Sides, human is under the species of Homo Sapiens, how could you have a difference race of human, where race is in a bigger scope of category than species?

For me, the ethnic doesn't matter but the more concern is in differences in religion and law in Malaysia. that's a very big thing to tackle.

generally, i am not influence by the races of my partner. i can accept anyone who is eligible and able to communicate.
some how appearance and status is not important rather than a character is the main concern.
