Can you imagine if I taught my kids, in USA to point and say "blackie! blackie! blackie!" every time they see a black person? How do you think that would go down? So Thai kids are taught never to ask things or question authority, but harassing white people is OK.

    If you ever wake up in Asia and think, "I don't want to be gawked at today," it may be time to reconsider your previous decisions.

    I usually ignore it but sometimes point at them and say, "Thai, Thai" mimicking their dumb ass voice they have on.

    Or point and just say "farang, farang" back at them the same way. Even though it doesn't make sense I feel kids understand that shit

    It happened to me about five weeks ago when two boys, about five years old, yelled at me in Big C. They were clearly being brought up to be complete idiots and I felt like smacking them across the chops ! I just replied, "Thai,Thai,Thai". Ignorant, horrid little bastards !

    I'm usually the same.

    A few previous times I've asked them in Thai where the farang is, that I don't see him, while looking around.

    That kinda stumps them.

    There was a time when I picked up a little boy by his ankles and held him over a large pot muttering words along the lines of farangs eat Thai children for breakfast...He pissed himself, presumably because he was laughing so much. His sister still teases him about it to this day, but they have never dared call me a farang since.

    I wouldn't recommend doing this, however, unless you know their mother very well indeed...

    Nowadays, I put on a Mr Bean face and get a good laugh out of them....

    Was looking for something else and came across this.

    Damm, the question has been asked so many times across the different Thai Forums.

    My 1/2 Farang kids from a few years ago contemplating the inevitable question ...

    Perspective is everything ... it's the difference between going through an ordeal or going through an adventure..
