Will Chinese Australians take the moral high ground, again? : Comments

By Chek Ling, published 10/10/2023

Now in 2023, the Chinese are 5% of the population. We are said to have flipped a few seats from the unlovable Morrison government in the 2022 Federal Elections.

When there is talk of an ethnic group influencing voting just because of their ethnicity, you know the country is on the decline. It also suggests that Chinese Australians, in this case, all think alike; just as some people think that aboriginal Australians all think alike.

Vietnamese Australians might be more than a little miffed about "Chinese and Vietnamese votes", too.

Chinese "organisations" might go for Yes. But what about Chinese individuals? As Warren Mundine said of the corporations, bishops, sporting organisations etc, 'we have spoken to the customers and employees, the church-goers, and the sports fans'; they donít blindly follow-the-leader.

And, here we go with the disdain and abuse again - Chek Ling asks, "Are too many latter-day Chinese Aussies still afflicted with the middleman mentality?".

Chek Ling should stick to engineering; cast his own vote, and realise that other people will vote for what they think is right, irrespective of their ethnicity or their "status" in Australia.

The author is using race as an argument in support of the referendum, confirming the understanding by most Australians that the Voice is a racist initiative that will divide Australia while bringing no benefits to those Aboriginal people who need to have the gap closed.

'other people will vote for what they think is right, irrespective of their ethnicity or their "status" in Australia.'

And to them what is 'right' is how they interpret their personal experience in having been marginalized.

Bernie,

Yes. It's all about race. Albanese, the activists and Yes voters should be ashamed of themselves.
