I shot a video about this, there are people writing me about the video series that would like to know how it would be to come to Thailand to live as an African American.
If you’re white skinned you’ll not have any major problem. If you’re black-skinned, then what? I try to clear it up in the video – according to my own point of view. If you have a different opinion, leave it in the comments.
Basically the answer is – yes, there is prejudice and discrimination among all people in every country. Thailand is no different, but all in all – it shouldn’t be a major consideration if you have other than pasty white skin.
If you have been discriminated against in Thailand – leave your story in the comments. Do not name specific people, places, or organizations – I’ll have to edit them out.
