One day, my son came home from school and asked me “mummy, is Mr so and so a Chinese? And is Ms so and so an Indian? Are we Malay?” He was in standard one. That was 3 years ago.
I guess I never thought my children about different races because it didn’t matter to me. I never saw people as being Malay, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan, Iban, Caucasian, African (sorry if I’m missing anything out). I saw them as people. I still fail to understand why this is an issue.
