Point[edit]

What is the point of this page? Thai immigrants in US are relatively SMALL number compared to other nationals. If you want to talk about In-Chan, then creat a page about them. There is no Thai official record about Mr. He Thien whom the author claimed to be the first student to immigrate from Thailand. The number of Thai immigrants to US that the author provided does not have any reference. If you want to put this page on, you have to do more in-depth with reliable FACTS, not something you guess. And again, what is the point of talking about Thai immigrants in US which are relatively VERY SMALL number compared to other nationals. -dhanakorn, June 22, 2005

Rename/refashion[edit]

I suggest, following a suggestion made by SimonP on the VfD, that this be moved and refashioned as a Thai American article. Any objection/comment?--Pharos 4 July 2005 02:33 (UTC)

Classism - Not All Thai-Americans are White-Collar[edit]

Although Los Angeles has the largest population of Thai immigrants, other cities around the U.S. have 750 average when researching the U.S. Census 2000 figures.

What I know in the mother country (on Thai soil) is that if one drove a Mercedes-Benz and/or Volvo, the individual is considered wealthy and/or the equivalent of a celebrity. However in the U.S. and Canada, this is not the case.

There is also a blue-collar segment of the Thai-American population which exists, especially for those earning less than $120,000/yr where not all are in the cliched occupations e.g. law/medicine/computer technology. In real life, those not part of the "Thai Elite" (prominent restaurenteur, doctor, attorney) in the white collar world (which includes the yuppiefied Asian American mainstream) are considered social pariahs to which the working class Thai-Americans are excluded from the community.

FYI, the nomination process is now over, and the voting period has began. Due to lack of nominations the slot for Laotian female representative is vacant, and will need further discussion sometime after voting has been concluded. The voting period will last until 4 December 2009. --RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 20:12, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Thai hypocrisy[edit]

It should be noted that Thailand does not reciprocate America's generosity to Americans on its soil. Racism and xenophobia prevail in the Thai-American relationship with Thailand offering no more than a high maximum of 100 Americans attaining citizenship in one year. Most of that number are made up of Thais born in the US. 203.131.210.82 (talk) 01:23, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Thais protesting government in 2014 represents hypocrisy[edit]

As is well known, America is a nation that rejects oppression by royalty. The nation was founded on this. With so many Thais supporting the pro-monarchy group in Thailand wearing "I love the King" t-shirts in Los Angeles and other places during the past months, it is clear that many Thai-Americans have shown that they do not believe in American values. Supporting foreign groups and governments which willingly take away rights including the right of free speech for the sake of royalty is not an American value. This is posted here for the record.203.131.210.82 (talk) 01:31, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
