possible racism at school

Post Posted: Sat Jan 04, 2014 4:07 am

Morning all. I am an English guy living in Barbados and am thinking of moving to Chiang Mai in a years time. My 10 year old daughter is half Kenyan, half Ethiopian - my wife and I adopted her from an orphanage when we were living in Kenya.

I have read many things online regarding the Asian preference for lighter skin. Has anyone heard of, or experienced, racism at international schools in Thailand toward "black" children or seen any racist behaviour on the streets of Thailand toward these children? I have spoken to a few local Thais in Bangkok and they seem to think there would be no problem for my daughter at an expat school in Thailand, but I would like to canvas opinion before we consider moving.

Thanks very much for any information.
