Is it racist?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Is it racist?

Post by Artful Dodger » Tue May 01, 2018 3:10 pm

I have been thinking of writing on my sandwich board sign outside my place in P.P... "All nationalities welcome... as long as your first language is not Chinese".

You will be broke soon with that attitude considering you the current/future economic climate in KoW.

If you're actually looking for a straight response - yes, it's racist because it's exclusionary based on ethnicity. No, it's not hate speech. Is it covered by your freedom of expression and the fact that people are not entitled to your goods/services - yes. Will you get more blowback than it's worth - probably.

Edit: In your position I'd be more inclined to write on the bottom of the board, in Chinese only, "Be respectful of staff and other customers or you'll be told to leave."

Yes.

Which country is Cambodia's biggest trade partner/investor?

Or you could just fly a drone in Takhmao, that would be quicker.

Yes. It is.
But I imagine that you can refuse to serve people if you want to.
