so there’s someone from my country claiming that he’s “half korean” and “half indian”, but previously, he claimed that he was “half british and half malay”. and its getting on my nerves, because you don’t change your “nationality” based on what is currently “popular” or whatsoever. Claiming you’re “half-korean” and using certain phrases you picked up from watching shows is being a koreaboo. there’s a clear line between appreciating a culture, and appropriating one.
@Diva i think its sort of how islam is seen i guess in malaysia? like elsewhere people who practice islam are constant victims to islamophobia and made the target but in malaysia there are issues abt how islam threatens the minorities ie. the chinese and indians and it feels v. contradictory, being worried abt muslims yet at the same time being 'oppressed' by it. i hope i've explained things a bit clearer, thanks.
