Race relations can be tense in ASEAN. They live together harmoniously (usually not killing each other) but separately. Living in Singapore coming from California there are hardly any mixed marriages here versus the US. I'm sure there are lots of factors why, but for some reason I expected a few more considering they have been living amongst each other for so long. The government works hard but they can only do so much to erase the stereotypes and can't erase the fact that Chinese do build vast fortunes in these countries. They also create jobs. It makes me sad to see anyone (coming to or coming from) Indonesia and Malaysia destroying the rainforest and planting palm oil plantations...taking land from native people and animals and destroying biodiversity. Its exploitation of the land rather than helping the locals and I think that may be why some people feel this way today rather than it being an old stereotype.

The vast majority of Filipinos would test zero percent Caucasian in a ancestral DNA test. Last time I checked ancestry from the country of Spain is counted as Caucasian ancestry in a DNA test.

Even African Americans have more Caucasian admixture than Filipinos.

Only around 3 percent of the entire Filipino population of have any Caucasian admixture (Spain). 97 percent of Filipinos are pure Asian.

Most of you people do not belong to the Yellow Oriental race, but you are still technically Asian the same way Indonesians are still technically Asian, even though they share a border with Papua New Guinea.

There are two types of Asians, the Yellow skin Orientals and the Brown skin Asians. The Brown skin Asian countries are hot and humid all year long. While the Yellow skin Oriental countries actually have 4 seasons. That is why it is not uncommon to see snow in Northern China, Korea, and Japan.

I wonder if Northeast Asians on average would not be so light skin if they did not have 4 seasons.

It's mainly cultural differences. It's most commonly Indians and Chinese 'Chindians', as Malays do not as a rule intermarry with non-Muslims.

I know Cambodians or "Khmer" people strongly influenced the Laos, Thai and Southern Vietnamese. Muay Thai was copied from the Cambodians Pradal serey. Thai and Laos food are influenced by Khmer food.Many people think its the other way around. The khmer empire was one of the most powerful and largest empires in Asia. Pretty much all of South East Asia was part of the empire. Thai or Tai people attacked the empire from the west killing the Khmers or assimilating them. On the east side the Vietnamese were doing the same both the Tai and Vietnamese come from what is now present China. The Laos and Thai are both ethnically Tai.

Indonesia has bad relations with Malaysia and East Timor. But with other Southeast Asian countries it's OK.

In some Chinese online forums, northern Chinese call southern Chinese "Malay", and southern Chinese call northern Chinese "Tungus". Both with negative connotations.
However, there is not real hatred toward southeastern Asians. They may not like Indonesians for events in the past.

Wtf. As a Korean who grew up in Seoul I can tell you that we think Chinese are dirty, lawless cheaters. We call Chinese "Jjankye" and "mainland" in Korean is synonym for poor quality and cheap labor. And we are not the only ones who feel this way.
