Are there Blacks working and living in Cambodia (Phnom Penh)


Hello all,

Kind of a touchy subject but here goes. I am an American Black man, self employed as a lawyer. Things are very tough in this economy and I personally need a fresh start, so I am very interested in looking into living in Cambodia. I know many wonderful Cambodian people here in the States. I'm reading a lot about how Cambodians are less welcoming to darker-skinned people, how schools are less likely to employ Blacks and how even lodging or a visa extension can be a problem. Can anyone shed light on any of this? I have read that Africans have been given a hard time but I wonder if this is across the board for people of color.
