Arabs and Thai Racism

Reader comment on item: Arabian Sex Tourism
in response to reader comment: Arabs "shopping" in Thailand too

Submitted by Kreakos Ibraheem (Lebanon), Sep 1, 2006 at 04:05

As an Arab from Palestine and living in Jordan , I would say that I had the luck to visit Thailand 4 months ago and what I saw there was horrifying, it made me reconsider my attitude towards Zionists since I used to think that they were racists number one in the world but I discovered that Thai people are extremely racists.

Meeting a Christian man from India was so great to me in Bangkok , I was telling him how lucky he is to be considered living in Thailand were he can enjoy freedom of religion away from oppression , yet he told me terrible stories about how his children are suffering from segregation even within the Thai Christian community just because they are Indians, not one Thai child is ready to talk to them.

I know that Thai people suffer from a complex of inferiority when it comes to white skin; every thing there is about how lighter your skin should be, Thailand is an example of human absurdity and what the imperialism west is trying to see.

I am an Arab and I came to Thailand and I didn't look for sex, and I know many Arabs who don't want to come to Thailand because of the insulting sexual scenes in Thailand.

I think you are lying to your self when you try to overlook the fact that Brits and OZ are coming to Thailand to enjoy the cheap women and the cheap beer offered by your nation to them just because they are white skinned.
