She doesn't want to rent it out to black men


Recommended Posts

Baiting post by OP.

 

just screen potential renters properly, who cares about their color when they can afford it and have good reputation and payment history?

I think the OP is being provocative with the post. 

 

Here's a situation that my Thai wife had when we rented our Bangkok condo out on TripAdvisor (FlipKey) in the early 2010s before AirBnB became a thing. After a year or so of rentals - typically 5 days to 2 weeks duration - she implemented an unwritten rental policy for vetting before allowing a booking. We had previously rented to people from all over the world including; Indonesians, Americans, Malaysians, Australians, British, Singaporeans, Continental Europeans, Hong Kongers, Guyanans and even Thais. We'd hosted singles, couples, families straights, and gays as far as we know. It was out of all these groups that the Thai wife was adamant of: NO THAIS and NO SINGLE MALES! Those were the only people we ever had a problem with. All others were lovely. Why no Thais? Invariably it was for a Farang/Thai couple coming back to vist family and almost always, her whole family - on one occasion 8 people - would arrive from upcountry for a stay in our condo suitable for 4 persons. Single males? Well that was due to them bringing back ladies everynight and partying - on one occasion the girls left in the early morning stealing the guest's laptops, phones, wallets, passports etc. That caused an issue for us. Stopped renting out some years ago now due to the hassles.

Out of curiosity: How do you check the status of these people? If a guy rents it and he tells you he rents it together with his wife do you check that? And is it illegal if he would lie?

I read in other news that people rent villas and tell they have a big family reunion. And then in reality they have a wild party. Is that a crime?

Just for the record: I don't intend to rent anything.

Yes the very obvious interpretation is to take it at face value that he found his wife's question absurd and thought it would be funny to share the absurdity on TVF... your interpretation requires a much greater level of assumption.

Not buying it for a millisecond.

A dog whistle to the racists !!!! 

 

 

... If someone is paying then why not ?

 

When renting out a condo get a reference from a previous landlord and follow up with a call. There’s no reason not to rent out to anyone with a decent reference. 

dog whistle? lol - you would have to be dumb blind deaf and stupid not to think it's racist...

More like their ability to pay and keep it clean. I rather have a black muslim then a white guy who trashes the place. Does not really matter much who rents my stuff. But need someone trustworthy for both paying and not trashing the place.

 

Seen plenty of white guys trash places and plenty of people on here like to stick it to the landlord over the smallest complaints. So maybe rather not have one of those idiots who think that every small problem needs to end with them sticking it to the landlord.

 

So its not about religion or country of origin you got bad apples everywhere. The pics you sometimes see of how trashed stuff gets puts me off from renting out my house. I might get 7000-8000 but just not worth the stress. 

a lot of these generalizing racist sentiments written on here come mainly from one country..

Very, very disappointed in you Pravda.

 

Raising this question implies racial discrimination may sometimes be warranted.

 

You might want to reflect on the possibility that someday in the not so distant future people may start asking themselves the same question about white people. Think about it. Many white people don't seem to like anybody who doesn't look like them, be they be Chinese, Black, Hispanic, Indian, Arab, African, etc., etc. Who wants to be around people like that? Trust me, many people are starting to ask themselves questions like this.

 

Perhaps being on the receiving end of housing, job, social discrimination is the only way some people will learn how hurtful and painful it can be.

 

these intelligence gaps are present among many white people, could be a genetic flaw. White people have been the minority forever with  history  documenting they only have succeeded by robbery and genocide. Payback will be a b**** lol

Native American indians were pretty bad also long before the white people came. They were killing and raping too.

this is a ridiculous blanket statement......then might as well say white people came and killed and raped.  and then just say everyone killed and raped.

 

tons and tons and tons of peaceful native american indians.....do some research.

I think it's interesting how many people (here) pretend they treat everybody equal - or at least they don't make an issue out of the skin color.

Are we really all so open minded?

Lets say anybody of us would look for a new condominium somewhere in Bangkok. In one place are mostly white "Westerners". And in a very similar building there are many people with a dark skin color. Now where would we chose to live? And lets say the condominium in the building with the "white" people would be 20% more expensive; how many of us would be willing to pay 20% more not to live in that building with all those dark people?

 

It's easy to write we are not racist and it's easy to pretend that just the idea that someone would not rent to a black guy is absurd. But let's look at reality. Are we all in real life as equal minded as we pretend to be?

 

Personally I don't think I am a racist. But deep down I have preferences what I like and what I don't like. Maybe for good reason, maybe just the way I grew up with all those white people around me. I am pretty sure many of us are not really as open minded as we pretend to be.

Your right but it also is about are they of the same socio economic background. Are the white guys sexpats who party all the time and the black muslims with call to prayer. Then it would be hard choice. 

 

If both are really the same i might choose white i might feel more at home there as background would be more similar. But for renting out a property I really would care far more about ability to pay and keep things clean. I don't have to live with the person im renting too. Just get money and hope the place isnt trashed. 

 

I am now constantly surrounded by people from Singapore almost no white friends. I can't say i feel any difference. Maybe some cultural stuff. I am said to talk to much. They hate disrupting or changing the subject. For me its easy if someone talks about something i dont want to listen to i tell them say. They are too polite to brush me off. But I have always selected those i hang out with based on interest and background not skin color. 

 

But like you i grew up among white people so i might feel more of a connecting if all other things are the same.
