White guys are the black guys in Thailand

Remember those white girls back home who would only date black guys. It used to annoy the hell out of me because I had absolutely no chance with these chicks at all. Typically they were blonde petite and fairly good looking but they had a taste for the Black stuff. No matter how much game I had it didn’t matter these girls only wanted Black guys and there was no amount of alcohol that could change their mind.

When I was 18 living in western Sydney I had a really good mate 28 who was Maori (Indigenous New Zealand) and he was very dark in complexion. One day this girl 13 was walking down the street where we hung out. She would have been the complete opposite as white as they come. Even that young she came straight over to us when we shouted out and this chick went straight up to my mate and put it on him didn’t even once look at me. Anyway they hooked up and within a few years had a couple of kids, when my mate got pinched on a trumped up driving charge I went over to see her and I asked her why she even went with my mate in the first place and she simply told me that she used to live on the farm and it was her first day in the suburbs and that he was the first black guy she had ever met. She loved black guys and that’s what she was only attracted to, simple. They are still together.

Turn the page over and head to Thailand and it’s the White guys that are now the Black guys of Thailand. There are girls in Thailand that will only date foreigners, typically western looking guys English, American and Australians that have white skin. In fact most Thai people in general look for these qualities if you havn’t figured out yet Thai people are pretty racists which is probably why you don’t see many black folks in Thailand.

As a white guy in Thailand talk to any Thai girl for more than 10 minutes and she’ll put her arm parallel to yours comparing the skin colours. This shit really annoys the hell out of me especially in Chiang Mai when most of the girls have whiter skin than I do. Yet they are so fascinated about the colour of your skin it still amazes me to this day. I think for many of us here in Thailand we don’t care if they are dark tanned or pale Chinese white if they look good they look good no matter their complexion.

But honestly if your a white guy in Thailand they make you feel like a rock star. Head to Pattaya for instance and walk down Soi 8 for a taste of exactly how good they can make you feel. But don’t you just hate walking down near the bars and the girls are screaming out at you “Hey Sexy Man” making you smile ear to ear like your the hottest guy on the planet only to get dragged into the bar sit down order a beer then all of a sudden your left alone and the girls scatter and start all over again screaming at the next guy….

    100% agree with your view on this mate , they treat white guys like Rock stars , being an Asian i have experienced it .

    • Jon December 8, 2011 at 1:32 pm #

      @barcadiboy: I agree with you too bro. For me, since Im also an Asian living here in Isaan its pretty cool because I can blend into the Thai crowd and not stand out and get stared at by the Thai people around like the white guys.

  2. Chemalyn Zambrano December 8, 2011 at 11:58 am #

    I agree! This I observe making most white guys like megalomania! As an asian woman, I hate watching how white guys are taking advantage as to how Thai women treated them like they are gods…sadly, for me, some of them are simply the frogs (feeling prince)

    • Rita Graça November 11, 2013 at 12:12 am #

      And are you as upset the way some white girls treat blacks? Especially because us whites are a minority in the world and alll this mixing is starting to look close to genocide..

    I’ve had this thought on occasion before. I know exactly what you mean. I remember those kind of girls who were only into black guys and had often chuckled to myself as I have seen how we white guys are a kind of black guy in Thailand. The downside to this is that they still call us niggers (farang) which seems to me to be completely impolite. But hey, maybe I’m too damn sensitive.

      I am a westiner going to school to learn thai, I have a sweet teacher who happens to be a history student as well (how often do u find a Thai who knows history.. YES, not often, thay dont care..)

      Anyways, she says the word FARANG comes from when they first saw a white man, and he happend to be from France… so as we all look the same.. that is what we are..
      u gotta love how simple it all is…

      • charlieboz February 15, 2012 at 1:18 am #

        I heard that one as well (farance was how it was pronounced) but then there are a lot of other sources that say it originally came from the Chinese and that the word pre-dates the French and other westerners in Thailand

    Nothing to do with the colour of your skin. White western guys equal money that’s what the women are chasing

    • Sensible_queen December 12, 2011 at 5:33 am #

      Right! because asian women knew you’ve got the bucks…without your money, white farang are nothing but uncircumcised pigs with bad manners and bad breath…haha

    • Eric December 13, 2011 at 9:11 am #

      Yes and no…

      My GF loves femail farangs and their white skin…

      • Chris December 13, 2011 at 9:18 am #

        so does mine! Honestly I think 70% of Thai girls would be ok being the mia noi if mia luang was a white chick.

        • Eric December 13, 2011 at 9:42 am #

          My scandi bar owning friend says that most thai girls are inherent lesbians..

          there u go Chris, another topic for u, he he

        • Dylan December 24, 2011 at 1:28 am #

          Haha, totally agree, my gf would love to get a young hot russiona in bed with her, but she’s not at all interested in other Thai girls.

          I’m starting to agree that they all have the lesbian in them, it just needs bringing out!

  5. HappyinBKK December 15, 2011 at 2:21 am #

    Agreement here also. I was a former inner-city school teacher in Oakland so I’m pretty-well versed in adapting the “Big-dicked, home-boy” persona. It serves me well in that there are a significant percentage ot Thai babes that are attracted to that!

  6. Eric December 24, 2011 at 11:30 pm #

    But I just don’t quite get it that they don’t really get into other hot Thai chicks… sure I understand that they don’t want the local friends circle to know but.. even when away they dont seem to want to… I want it damn it! lol…

    Thailand has 41 ethics, and the ruling ethic is Tai Shan who naturally has white skin, and originally lived north in the south China. Shan or Siam. All Thai kings are shan or siam and have white skin. Siam conquerred the southeast asia from Khmer Empire which has been reduced to small size as today Kampucha, and Siam conquerred Malay Pinisula in the South (phuket) from Malaysia. Southeast Asia aborigines have dark skin, and were forced under rule by Tai Shan or Siam to be thai nationality. The dark skin in the south or Phuket is in fact malay ethic or malaysia, and the dark skin in the northeast Isaan are in fact dark skin southeast asian aborigine, not thai ethic. Worthy of note all prostitutes or bar girls are dark skin issan or malay ethics, while Thai or siam kings are white skin like northern tai shan.

    • Eric November 14, 2013 at 12:56 am #

      @ Tu, thanks very interesting, thanks for that…

  8. Rita Graça November 11, 2013 at 12:14 am #

    Also, if you call the thai girls racist, because they like whites, why dont you call white girls racist b ecause they like blacks???

  9. bob November 14, 2013 at 10:45 pm #

    LOL all studies show that generally low income white women are the ones who go after black guys.

    • HappyInBKK November 16, 2013 at 5:30 am #

      Bob, That fits because (except for a few exceptions,) the only Thai women
      that will have anything to do with “farangs” are the golddiggers and skanks.
      Hence, they’re looking for the financial-security that most Thai males can’t/won’t
      provide. (Of course there are exceptions but I learned long ago not to disregard
      the 90% of truth for the 10% of “exceptions.”) :)

    Thai women, and many women in asian countries in general, like white men because they’re physically attracted to them. I’m sorry if this hurts your feelings or perhaps removes your comfort blankets.

    Im a dark skinned female from Singapore, married to a white Australian. Am in Phuket right now and
    I’m a bit shocked right now at the amount of white males with a Thai lady. Also, it seems as though I am being judged everywhere I go here, as I am seen as a Thai, which is a bit unfortunate as I can’t enjoy the country as much. Can’t put my head around the situation, but oh well we’re all adults and should be able to do as we please without being judged.
