Re-reading my post I am not particularly proud of my choice of words. My apologies.

What I meant to say and failed to get through was this:

When referring to a caucasian what politically correct term should they use if not farang?
They way I see they use the term farang is the same way I would use the word asian or thai for that matter.
Obviously I wouldn`t adress a person asian, that would be an insult as every person is an individual same goes with farang IMO.

If one doesn`t know the name of a particular asian person, I find it perfectly accepteble to refer to person in a conversation as asian, or if I know his/her origin, I would refer to the person in question as thai/chinese whatever, why would the word farang be any different and less acceptable?

cheers

How about the "American", "European", or "Australian"?  It refers to where they are from (e.g. the "Thai") as opposed to their race.

I have no problem with Farang as applied to strangers. After all, how is a Thai to know where a foreigner is from? What is irritating is when Thais do know who you are, where you are from and maybe even your name - but still refer to you as the Farang.

I believe this all depends on your longevity here and general connections and relationships. Personally, most everyone close to me {a great number} don't look upon as 'The Farang'. I'm just me. Even though the oldest hand can still be considered 'one of them'.
All things appear and disappear because of the concurence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.....
