I agree with you guys that we shouldn't judge a race on a few bad ones, but I disagree that the Thai was nice enough to accept us. I don't think they were nice, I think that they were obligated to accept us (perhaps that's the reason why they didn't treat us with respect). I'm not trying to pick an argument but You guys sound really naive. I don't believe they truly wanted to accept us. They had some kind of ulterior motive. (Just like when the American helped the philippines gain their independence with a price. Soon they started to take over until the philippines kick the American butt out.) Imagine how it would look like to the rest of the world if the Thai didn't accept us, (they'll look like the bad guys and nobody wants to be the bad guy). They agree to accept us because the USA asked and they wanted to look good and build a good relationship with the US. They also benefited from accepting us, how? There were lots of jobs open in the camp such as teachers, daycare providers, doctors, nurses, & etc. Who paid for them? The UN and countries all over the world. Considering what they did to us and the conditions that they provided for us to live in I don't think they were that nice. We were kinda like prisoner (we werent allow to get out of the camps at all) or the Japanese in intermittent camp. Regardless of what i think and know I am grateful that the Hmong had somewhere to live.
