MM Lee - "Hard Truths" on Cross Racial Marriages

Okay, netizens are beginning to start commenting on Minister Mentor Lee Kwan Yew's comment on cross racial marriages in this new book - "Hard Truths". Many of these comments were negative.

Hey, c'mon! Such mindset of feeling uncomfortable seeing own sons and daughters marrying someone else of different race is common in Asia among the elderly, including MM Lee himself.

I don't agree with all of the statements made by LKY in his book but for this, I have to agree. That's the hard truth and many just do not wish to accept it, trying to think objectively for just one moment but the real truth is, their subjective mindsets will eventually takeover. We still pretty much live in a world whereby we do really care how others judge us.
