I usually don't generalize, but in this case I do question Bengalis. I had 21 Bengalis in my class, they always spoke in their own language right in front of you and put on airs, trying to show off how "cultured" they were. I found it very rude and disrespectful, when you are talking in a group and all of a sudden a Bong joins and they start speaking in their own lingo, its very unsophisticated and rude. Most of the 21 people did that. They also constantly bitched about my city and spoke about how great theirs was, and I was like well go back then why are you here.
In addition, two of my teachers were Bengalis. One of them constantly spoke about how cultured and well-educated Bengalis are, and spent most of the classes praising their culture and was very partial to all Bengalis. This was my first experience with Bengalis, needless to say it was very bad. So yeah I didn't find DD's ganging up and bullying surprising.
A lot of Bangladeshis also speak Bengali, and my experience with them has been quite good.
