Effective communication is vital in inter-ethnic interaction. Through communication, social interaction between ethnicities can reduce social distance. Social distance can create a sense of alienation based on racial differences involving different groups of people. In this case, social interaction at the local community level is a platform to find out whether social interaction in the community produces meaningful communication, the influence of prejudice and the existence of inter-ethnic social distance in the apartment occupants of the apartment type studied. This study analyzes patterns of social interaction in communication involving different ethnicities in Section 2, Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur. This study used a survey and observation methods to analyze communication patterns in inter-ethnic interactions. A total of 300 respondents were selected by stratified sampling based on ethnic composition in the study area. This study used the social distance theory to assess and interpret the pattern of social interaction in inter-ethnic communication that occurs in apartment-type resident communities. The results of the analysis showed that there is a clear pattern in social interactions involving communication between different ethnicities. Inter-ethnic communication has a significant relationship with the existence of shared interests among the population. The existing of shared interests by community members will build a better platform of integration within the multi-ethnic community. © 2020, Penerbit Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
