    Is there a racist word for 'thai' that thais understand?

    just curious. i don't think 'gook' 'chink' 'slope' et al registers with them.

    familiar with 'jek', but interested in something that applies to all thais.

    though if you know words for various subgroups, feel free to share

    Just settle for the occasional "ah hia". Job done.

    I believe the OP is scanning for derogatory racial slangish terms that might be used towards Thais in a manner that is usually befitting the foreigner....

    well i'm afraid i cant help him there, but why would a foreigner want to use a thai word when i've been told there are many such words in english, german, french, spanish, chinese, etc.

    to racially abuse a thai in their own language, should such a word exist, would surely be courting a violent and possible fatal response.

    Calling a Thai "lao" tends to do the trick.

    Didn't somebody get beaten up by a monk on a train a while back for saying something that sounded similar?

    why bother searching for some racist word, when all that is necessary to get a thai to kill you is to slightly scratch their fragile ego syndrome, easily done.

    better half has a habit of asking people who are being persistently stupid, "so when did you leave the jungle" not sure if that counts?

    isn't that calling some one a monitor lizard. I can see how that could piss someone off... particularly if it were a commentary on their morality

    If they call monitor lizards cunts round your neck of the woods then yes.

    fair enough.

    I had baby monitor lizard living in my garage until the cats made it their play thing. seemed to have the grace of a skinhead more than a vagina.

    That would be "tua hia".

    is there a racist word for 'thai' that thais understand?

    "Lao" or "K'men" should get the desired response.

    If it's in response to being called a farang, asking who the monkey is normally shuts them up....

    Ahh, another 6 foot tall bullet proof foreigner who most likely can't speak "2-word-tourist-thai" or even "horse-peak-thai" yet who wants to racially denigrate the indigenous inhabitants of the glorious "Land 'O Thais"..

    Dude, here's some friendly advice; IF you don't possess enough skill in the thai language to dig yourself out of a hole you dug on your own by lipping off to the wrong thai, I'd give a pass on learning to curse in thai for the time being..

    You might curse at a thai who's vexed you, and indeed you may even land a punch or three on him too when he comes after you, BUT what you ain't gonna do is beat down the entire pack 'o thais which will descend on you after that.

    Just sayin'... So take it for what it's worth..

    However, in an effort to be a kinder gentler Tod Daniels and to actually contribute to this mindless thread rather than just bloviate;

    You wanna rile up a thai, it sure ain't by calling 'em Laotian or Cambodian. For some reason Thais HATE as in totally detest Karen Hill Tribe people. In thai that's กะเหรี่ยง pronounced as gà rìang.. That one sure gets their fur up! Good luck..

    Actually, the whole thread is a bit weird. Does any one (race, people, nationality) have a derogatory word for themselves in their own language?

    Trying to think of an example, and can't come up with one. The whole thing about racial slurs is that they are established by one group, in their own language to slag off another group.

    Why would thais have a word in Thai that served to be derogatory towards themselves?

    weird.

    Really. Well I'll be damned. Todd, come on up to Isaan and call one of the locals a lao. Will make a great pic thread.

    Norton; I'll give that a pass and we'll just agree to disagree..

    Conversely, you wanna rile up a Laotian you tell them the Isaan-ites in thailand speak the Lao language.. That gets their dander up in a hurry!

    This particular OP's inquiry wouldn't really be weird for TD, instead predictable.
