Oh and even my Thai teacher at school believes Farang is derogatory.

malczx7r | 30 March 2018 - 14:18:52

The original name was "Farangses" (not sure i spelt that correct) and means French, so now anyone who has white skin they shortened it to "Farang"

DeKaaskopp | 30 March 2018 - 11:43:38

"Farang" is not meant as a derogatory description of white foreigners! Probably being addressed "Master"would please someone more.

Thais are as bigoted against Caucasians and Africans as it gets. That's why my race  is casually mentioned by Thais just about everywhere I go in way of the near constant declaration, "Farang.." (Thais aren't calling other Asian nationalities, "farang," because it means white.
  Xenophobia is a term   with a  completely different meaning than "neo-colonialist"...

Jor12 | 29 March 2018 - 18:03:04

That's the meaning of the word xenophobia and neo-colonialist. Why pick on a race merely based on the colour of ones skin? or make an area off limits because a certain race lives there? So some wish to silence critics, so they can continue to peddle their neo-colonialist xenophobic nonsense unabated? 

Pauly44 | 29 March 2018 - 12:05:53

Geez you shock easily, calling someone from Africa "African" is not racist, here's a tip, you're residing in & forever defending one of the most racist, xenophobic countries on planet earth, ignorance is bliss.

Re:"They not come for a fun holiday like Europeans..,Africans have their own girls ..".Now i understand why some poster here ,showing their dislike of this place regularly ,still stay here after all.No girls for them in their home countries for entertainment!

More racist drivel in the comments section. Shocking! 

Just goes to show the type of low life expats who settle in Phuket.  Move here, marry a bar girl, and spend all day on line pontificating (based upon their experience of hanging around lower Sukhumvit, no less. Jeesh!).

Pauly44 | 28 March 2018 - 17:49:58

I'd say the previous commentator has used the term "neo colonialist" at least a dozen times or more, it's nauseating  coming across your worthless comments, editor please do us all a favour and stop publishing his stupid comments! 

Sir Burr | 28 March 2018 - 17:12:53

"wow...the serial nonsense neo colonialist contributor is also xenophobic". 

Even though it's true? 
Ever been down lower Sukhumvit where you run a gauntlet of African men offering drugs and African women offering sex?
Ever seen how many Africans are in IDC due to overstaying their visas?
Sometimes, there is a valid reason for prejudice.

Jor12 | 28 March 2018 - 16:21:45

wow...the serial nonsense neo colonialist contributor is also xenophobic. 

Kurt | 28 March 2018 - 15:27:48

I is not nice to say, but conclude that African people coming to Thailand, not for a diplomatic or defined business purpose, are in general involved in ivory or drugs crimes.
They simply not come for a fun holiday like European. middle east people, etc.
Africans have their own girls in home countries for fun.
