I have been wondering how shocked people would be nowadays if a young Australian woman fell in love with a young Chinese man. Not at all shocked, I would imagine. Am I right?
Sure, I know that many people are criticising us for being racist.....but this story of a young woman in the 1950s being warned off having a romance with an Asian man demonstrates that, all those years ago, we were much more intolerant of other races. Is that what it shows? (If anything).
Would this lady have remained unmarried if her shipboard meeting was in another era? I wonder.
