    » I am trying to understand why Westerners living and married to Thai nationals are denied permanent residency status once they are legally married in the kingdom. In the west a Thai national receives residency once they are officially married to a western citizen. Procedures are followed and intensive...

    • 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
