yeah, no wonder neither the African Americans (13%) nor Hispanic Americans (17%) have any voice politically in the USA. Nobody cares about them, or even talk about them.

And there were also many Chinese who immigrated centuries ago into Malaysia and married into the local population. They were called Peranakan and had a unique blended culture and lifestyle that has all but faded away.

That's pretty much the case for Malaysia as well.

Well China is improving its standard of living in leaps and bounds. Malaysia is an average country in terms of wealth. My impression when we are there is of a peaceful, pleasant country. It is certainly that way when visiting as a tourist.

China’s improved by leaps and bounds, but with a country that large there’ll be a massive amount of local variation in how developed it is in different parts of the country. For still a massive swath of people, emigrating to Malaysia would probably still entail a boost in quality of life which is probably why that still continues to happen.

It doesn’t seem like the dual system has gone too badly so far, though I hope the religious aspect eventually erodes.

Yeah, under The MM2H (malaysia my second home) program, Chinese from China are the #1 for moving to Malaysia under that program.

They are calling it the Third Wave of Chinese emigrants to Malaysia.

Mainland China has also been responding by creating laws about moving movie to places like Johor Bahru...too much Chinese money is leaving China to buy up properties, investments, on and on among the Chinese of the Mainland.

I'd include a few links, but there are 1000s of links, I wouldn't even know where to choose....but if someone was interested in it, they could do some google searching.

One of the sources was wondering how Malaysia might respond if the ratio of non-Malay became too high from it.

I am under the impression that Malaysia is extremely unsafe and extremely corrupt.

I've never felt either when I've been there. I've been there maybe 6-7 times.

I wrote that on my phone while walking. Let me clean it up:

Under The MM2H (Malaysia my second home) program, Chinese from China are the #1 foreign group moving to Malaysia under that program.

They are calling it the Third Wave of Chinese emigrants to Malaysia.

Mainland China has also been responding by creating laws about Mainlanders moving to Malaysia. Too much Chinese money is leaving China to buy up properties and make investments in Malaysia.

Malaysia is not unsafe, but is corrupt. It is unsafe and corrupt compared to Singapore (and also Taiwan!) but it is better in those aspects compared to other countries in SE Asia.
