Dating and marrying in madagascar
But why would the French have advanced the status of black males over Asian males?
All they were interested in was advancing their own status.
The following opinions were unanimous: 1) Overall, black African Malagasy are less intelligent than Asian Malagasy.
As one individual put it, “what have blacks invented?
” 2) Overall, black African Malagasy are more likely to be criminals – though crime is not a big problem in Madagascar.
I should add that one person identified an Asian ethnic group as having the worst reputation for being fools and irresponsible: The Betsileo.
Though what I have done is, by no means, a scientific study, it does confirm the notion that interracial dating patterns are biological in origin and not cultural.
But this person also said that, aside from that, the black tribes are known to be less intelligent.
As for marriage patterns, three people clearly stated that, when an Asian Malagasy marries a black Malagasy, the male is always black and the female always Asian.
One person said the opposite – but I’m fairly certain he was confused with the question; my own observations agree with the others.
I’ve seen several black male/Asian female couples and not one the other way around.
I had hoped to interview a bunch of English-speaking Malagasy about their various ethnic groups, stereotypes about them and inter-ethnic mating patterns.
Alas, very few people here speak English so all I have to go on is several conversations I had with individuals.
