    • Yasoboy commented : [color=#FF0000:23l060dr][color=#FF80BF] by Aussie John on Mon Jul 12, 2010 1:07 pm [quote="Aussie John":23l060dr]Yasoboy. Early last century there were many Chinese immigrants who resided in the kingdom but were refused full citizenship. The king at the time gave them the opportunity to gain full citzenship and they had to change their surname, Many of these immigrants grew to become much of the Thai elite today. Yes indigenous Thai have some Chinese blood historically but their cultural background was Thai. The indigenous elite and that of the sino/Thai inter married. I do not wont to get into another racial argument about who controls who. But just because some one changes their surname does not mean they reliquish their former culture . [/quote:23l060dr][/color:23l060dr][/color] In early last century at least the Thai had the right to refuse the Chinese full citizenship. The Chinese Thai did not bring their army from China and ask the Thai people to accept them as citizen. Like you’ve mentioned, the Chinese Thais citizenship [u:23l060dr][b:23l060dr]was given[/b:23l060dr][/u:23l060dr] by the King. And Chinese Thais are willing to change their names and surnames to compromise. Unlike in US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, some Africa counties and all the South America counties. When few centuries ago, White landed in these countries with their armies with guns and steels, colonized them and claimed that their lands. The indigenous people don’t even have the right to refuse the White. Many centuries ago, the Chinese are the most advance and stronger in the region, but they have never tried to colonize anyone. They only trades with in South East Asia countries and eventually settled down in these countries. In this world nowadays, people are all the same regardless where you are from, your race, background and religion. We are so mobile and move around and migrate. The strongest, smartest, willing to change and work hard will make it to the top and all the above that I have mentioned is history. So please stop mentioning Chinese Thai in Thailand of what they have achieved. We Thais know better than you. If you want to mention again, then you should look at your own backyard of what you White have done to those countries that I’ve mentioned above. Many Thanks for reading. Yasoboy

    • Aussie John commented : Yasoboy I take it you are Chinese/Thai so I can understand your outpouring of support and refusal to look into the nature of disporas throuhout Asia. You lack the historical knowledge to understand the cultural strength of Chinese disporas in South East Asia. Contemporary colonialism has seen many Aisan disporas let freely into host nations only to disrupt the economic and social balance of the host. e.g. Malaysia, Indonesia and the Solomons. I call passive colonialisation but you will probably dispute this. Do some research on contemporary social structures within South East Asia. Its part of my own social research which I have spent years looking at. I agree the Chinese Thai have given the Thai nation economic strength through their industrious hard work and initiative. Yes very similar to the colonising white man but the laws are different . The Thai nation has colonised many parts of the country in both the North East and the south where much of the kingdoms present problems are coming from. Why is this.? I am trying to understand the nature of laws that have been created to dissuade certain people from imigrating to the kingdom. At present the laws are quite inhibitive and its not about old style colonialism that would not be tolerated in todays global economy. Most western countries accept spouses from foreign countries they are accepted and encouraged through support to intergrate. My wife is not Chinese Thai, nor is she or ever has been a prostitute as insinuated by previous posters. She has a job and works hard here in Oz as do many Thais. Yet she still cops discrimination from Bangkok Thais. Why is this.? Australia is a free nation with close economic links with Thailand. We have a huge Thai community that has been more than willing to immigrate here. If we were so oppressive as you keep telling me why do they continue to come in their thousands.? Our laws are fairer for those with foreign spouses they dont treat them as criminals. Thais have been indoctrinated into believing outsiders want to take over. With a complex culture such as Thailand this is totally impossible. Thailand is strategically positioned and is backed militarily by the USA another evil coloniser. If you are an intelligent Thai you would be able to see the reconcillation problems in your own country. There is true disparity not only between the social classes but also the diverse cultural regions. The feudal system never trully left, it just has been modified to suit those who economically control the kingdom. There are over forty million rural Thai who due to their social class and cultural background are denied opportunity due the deliberate lack of economic and educational investment in their regions. They must seperate from their families in much the same way as Chinese rural people do and go to work in the economically centeralised capital cities which are controlled by elite families who are mostly from a elite Chinese/Thai backgrounds. This is a social reality. Social groups from diffewrent cultural backgrounds although being all Thai are definitely not equal. Yes I can hear you coming at me again about my own countries past but you fail to understand our laws now. Australia is a modern nation I should not be held responsible for my fore fathers actions I try to move forward in a fair and humane way. Chai mai. We do not deny Thai with Australians spouses the right to feel secure. When they have PR they are given almost the same treatment as Australian citizens. That the Thai government has tougher immigration laws in my eyes is not about colonialisation that you keep harping on about. It goes deeper than that and if you were to look outside of the shallow, unquestioning education most Thais receive you would understand that all Thais are not free and equal. You are being decieved but as most Thais have been instructed and usually retort Farangs are stupid and could never understand the contadictory nature of Thai culture. I put it to you most Thais wouldn't understand it either as what appears at the face is not what is hidden on the inside. My wife and I are happy here in Oz. Thailand is the one that misses out, as the world is a global community where people who are inter related in most cases are given the opportunity to move freely and not deliberately shut out if they dont have enough CASH to bypass archaic laws that are made for the few. Yet again this is a topic on Thai marriage laws. So many Thai journalists in this paper have written about the injustices of the government and Thai elite and the laws that they create for the masses but do not abide by themselves. Why do these intelligent Thais who write get the opportunity to express their views on injustices yet foreigners are treated as stupid with no right to comment on things that directly affect them and their REAL Thai families. As I used to write many years ago. Long live the POOR as they are the true owners of Thailand for without them all Thais would not be able to survive. So treat them with respect and allow their foreign partners to trully support them as they allowed to in many western nations.
