    • Profiler commented : [quote="Chaiyo Thailand":3ol02gm7]You must understand how long it took US to be what they are today. Everyone knows, more or less, about American history, civil war and racialism. Thailand is many decades behind US in terms of democracy and we're at the starting point (I hope) of the transition era. Protests and violence (some) are bound to take place during this period of division. They will always be some fools who think violence is the best solution to the problem. It happens everywhere. Obama is not totally black and you know that. I'll only believe racialism does not exist in US if a Black person with Black father and mother becomes the President of the US. Believe me, if Obama had to face a White man, same age as him and more or less as intelligent and sincere as him, the white man will win.[/quote:3ol02gm7] Notice, I said "and Europe" , now Europe had similar problems too, but manage to get out of it since you put respect to the government, because they know one slip up and they're out the next term. That's the scare tactics one can use, not bashing someone down because he doesn't believe in the same ideas. The racism will always exist nomatter in the world, but take denmark and sweden as an example. Now denmark despite it's severe economic and immigrant problems resolved this without use of violence, maybe not to anyone satisfactory (certainly not mine) but they resolved it without using military or any other use of force and remember it was there the Moha. cartoon originated. Sweden as well has its problems with immigrants, some of them actually thai as well... (So so much for thais respect the laws abroad) and there were clashes between groups , between groups and police. At most the cops used watercannon and peppersprays, and the matter was dealt with. If the government is firm and to the point , matters will be resolved, but in Thailand no one has the respect for authorities and law. Now I don't blame mainly the local but mostly the authorities like police and military but they are part of this country too, and they have no intention of upholding the law whatsoever so the normal locals see that it's no point to follow the law since the authorities don't. Thats why it is what it is here... Nothing bothers the locals until they hear money... justice, human rights, upholding the law, are just concepts the thais put on the bookshelf... I certainly don't like some farangs that comes to Thailand, because I've seen in many places like Koh Samui, Phuket and Bangkok why they are really here, but that doesn't mean that all farangs that comes to live here are like this. Quite common misconception with thais. I've been in US and I've seen segregation like I've seen in Europe too, but when I was in LA, I saw black people hanging around with latino and white far*ts , I didn't see actually any kind of racism but of course it exists, but in Thailand it exists almost everywhere, you can't simply avoid it. Bangkok night clubs denies black people entree, white people always have to pay more no matter what. In south all of the sudden a dish which costed 30 baht on the menu suddenly cost 50 baht with no explanation, it is pretty obvious that either people have no idea how farang world works that not all born with silver spoons in their mouth, or they are obvious to the fact and simply ignorant. There is no denial that racism exists everywhere in the world, hidden or otherwise but in Thailand it's clearly visible.

    • Anonymous commented : Yes, I know of the money tree. There are many growing in Pattaya and in the farang areas of Bangkok. Some are even found in Phuket. But those trees are harvested only once per season (the tourist season). Once harvested and the leaves are gone, the tree will usually never sprout forth money again. To get a new crop, a new tree must grow. Seeds of the money tree are not indigenous to Thailand. The seeds come from such far away places as the UK, America, Sweden, and Germany. Some even come from Russia, but they seed from Russia is usually of poor quality and gives forth little money. Seeds from Pakistan or India are even worse. Usually the seeds come into Thailand by air with November, December and January the prime times for the seeds to enter. The seeds grow and give off money very rapidly with two weeks being the normal period. Some however will begin to give off money within a few days. For you farangs who are looking for seeds of the money tree, forget it. The tree will never be found. However, Thai people, particularly young attractive women have a genetic quality where they can smell the tree very clearly. They can usually smell it from quite some distance and are quite adept at harvesting. For the relatives of Thai women, finding the money tree is much more difficult but it can be found. However it is better to let the woman search for the tree. She has better luck.
