“I’m not Racist – It’s Just a Cultural Thing” …
Watch this video reel first that I have put together with English Subtitles -
Does Media Influence Culture, or is Media just a Reflection of Culture?
Many expats in Thailand don’t really watch Thai TV. When they do, while the visuals are often shocking, when you get the innuendo and the subtleties that only the language can provide, it is even more shocking … or maybe not.
I have put this reel together of four commercials to give the English speaking world a taste of what’s ‘par for the course’ when it comes to racial PC in Thailand.
I look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions. If you would like to contact me, you can drop me an email via my website – http://jcademy.com
