We have a multi racial staff of 1000 people working on this project in north eastern Thailand and racism is simply not tolerated. However a bit of unintended racism creeps in occasionally. Example: We have a lovely Nigerian HSE advisor called ... well, lets call him James. As I say a really nice bloke, very knowledgeable about his job and very helpful and not at all like some of the HSE Nazis that still crop up. He is as black as a top hat. The Thai's here are very polite and respectful. They refer to everyone by their first name but always also preface the name with the honorific Thai word for Mr. The word is Khun. And so it is that James gets called "Khun James" about a hundred times a day. Any other examples of unintended racism, sexism or whathaveyou out there in the wild?
