<div><p>Last March, the Thai Immigration Police visited Henry&rsquo;s apartment six times. Henry is a Nigerian MBA student, with a valid student visa. &ldquo;They accosted me on my way to campus&rdquo;, he said. &ldquo;They went through my phone a couple of times during the harassment. They came into my room and searched through my wardrobes and desk drawers. They took photos of me and my room number&rdquo;. According to Henry, his room was &ldquo;ransacked&rdquo;. Henry&rsquo;s crime? He says it is simply being a black African. &ldquo;To me, this is nothing less than racism and harassment.&rdquo;</p></div><div>&nbsp;</div>
