cool thanks, from what Ive heard, Khmer is only taught at local temples and speaking Khmer in public is not allowed, is that true?
LoL you did not read my post, did you not?
They even have the Channel/Program in Khmer language funded by the govt. I do not see any problem for them speaking Khmer.
From what I heard from some Khmer Krom students, they go to school for free. In School reserved for Khmer, they have been taught to read and write Khmer . It seems the Khmer Krom have more privileges than Kinh and Hoa ethnics, those made majority contribution to Vietnam society.
The Vietnamese culture in general are the most friendly and less racist than other culture such as American, because it was in the past they were Chinese minority ethnic so they kind of understanding. I do not think in America, there are Khmer Channel/Program funding by govt and or the Khmer language has been taught in schools.
I personally think Khmer kids in America and Thailand are less Khmer culture than KK, Khmer Krom in general able to read and write Khmer better.
I live in Soc Trang ok. we have a special highschools for Khmers. we called them "truong dan toc noi tru". the Khmer students get money every month from gov to support their study when attending these highschools. when sitting the university exam, the Khmer students get extra 5 bonus marks which can make a very different. when attending uni, they study for free, live free in dormitory, get pay for every month. what else do you want????http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJsdcCyS2ig...feature=related
Also from my observation, the people who in charge of Khmer Krom community are the Khmer Krom themselves. There's little involvement of the Kinh ethnic.
Many of them worship CPV than I do ( matter of fact, I am not fan of CPV).http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhEDHT6x_TQ...feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBraOZu9TPQ...feature=related
