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.  

Its a blanket statement should i have named a tribe. My point was more they were warring among themselves pretty brutal before the whites came. Some tribes destroyed others. Yes everyone raped and killed. Sorry was not my intention to make them out any worse then others. Point was there were no whites before but quite  few tribes went extinct because of other tribes.

Let's pretend the question is real.

 

Is it really racist to think twice who you want in your apartment and building?

I live in a building with people from all over the world (at least pre Covid times). And most of the time all is fine.

We always had a restaurant in the ground floor, mostly Thai food. 

A few years ago the Thai restaurant was closed. And then a black guy rented the place. And then it became an unofficial disco. Many (only) black people in a relative small room, loud music, open till late. There is a public toilet in the building maybe 30m away. Sometimes in the early morning there was toilet paper on the floor between the toilet and our new disco.

I think it took a couple of month to get rid of the new disco. I guess latest since then lots of people in the building would think twice if they would rent any place to a black guy.

Now is that racist? Or realistic? Or maybe just cautious? 

 

And yes, I know there are some nice black people out there. I know some of them and I wouldn't mind if they were my neighbors.

 

In the 14 years I've lived here there have been a number of white farangs arrested for child pornography and pedophilia. What if Thailand decided to ban all western farangs. "Now is that racist? Or realistic? Or maybe just cautious?" And yes I know there are good White people there. I wouldn't even mind having some of them for neighbors.

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. 

 

I know a few agents back home who do not rent properties out to Indians/Pakistani's, although that is clear grounds for discrimination, which doesn't exist here, but the agents reasons were you literally need to repaint and replace the carpet at the end of the tenancy because you can't get rid of the curry smell.

 

Cruel world we live in, painting and carpet replacement are a tax deductions as is any vacancy time.

In the west, even mentioning that you don 't want to rent to a certain ethnicity or race could land you in hot water, the ways things are at the moment, you might even get arrested. In Thailand, the vast majority of the black guys I have met are doing something dodgy. I wouldn't want to rent my condo to a convicted pedophile, does that me me a paedo-ist? I wouldn't rent to someone that been in prison, so maybe that makes be a criminal-ist. Like wise I wouldn't want to rent to someone who, from my experiences, is likely to be doing something that's not quite kosher. Sometimes you have to ignore people who accuse you of being racist and protect your property and interests by using common sense.

This is a non sequitur. You are conflating not wanting to rent out a condo to a black man with not wanting to rent out a condo to a criminal. Pretty disgusting and I don't even want to comment on your other claim.

 

I would gladly rent my house out to a black man in the UK. But in Thailand I would not.
