Does anyone think the word "Foreigner" should be banned from this forum? I saw some threads called "Hello Foreigners" etc over the last few days. Just who do we speak to if we wish do something like that?  


Westerner should probably be scrapped ... parts of India are to the West of China

What is needed is better education ... perhaps?

1) England is not the UK
2) England is not America
3) White people come from many places
4) Ditto for other colours
5) Chinese is a nationality - Singaporeans like to be called Singaporean, etc ...
g) etc ...

Yes, but I didn't want to overdo the sarcasm

Scotland is not England
Wales is not England
etc ...

actually "lao wai" sounds more adorable and kind than a cold "foreigner"...or can we call them...those sensitive lao wais who are easily get hurt like
"some-human-beings-the-same-as-us-but-from-somewhere-I-do-not-yet-know"
..to avoid potential racism?
