LOL LOL ...oops sorry...i totally misunderstood the topic. i wudnt say indians r shy towards blacks...or tht indians r rascist towards black ppl bt i think tht they wud rather keep a distance among themselves n black ppl...bcos i think they r a bad influence...since (i no this this is stereotypical) sum have a really bad attitude.

i dnt agree. i dnt think tht its justifiable 2 say tht an entire race...in this case indians...r racist. u cant put the attitute of a small minority against those of different cultures...on the rest of the indian population. 2 a certain degree...sum indians do still have animosity against muslims n in sum cases they dnt agree with their children gettin in2 a relationship with muslims...bt it is lyk tht with black n white ppl also.

however on the other hand...i feel indians r the least rascist ppl in the world...bcos ther r many indians living in all parts of the world n wheras they accept and adapt themselves 2 the western way n know about their culture n religious beliefs...the vast majority of the western population dnt. n i feel tht they r mre rascist. they dnt evn wna no about other cultures or respect their beliefs n js make comments lyk get out of our country n go bck 2 ur own country...thts nt very civilised. btw...this is js an xample...im not sayin every1 is lyk tht...Embarrassed ...bt i do think westerners r more self-absorbed.


Tia we are talking of Indians amongst the blacks. Thats what racist means. Hindu-muslim is NOT a race !!!!!!!!!

How many Indians have you seen very chummy with the African Brits in UK or the African-Americans in U.S  ? They are shy of the "black" colour.

yes i no tht...i did briefly mention muslims...bt if u read what i sed...i was tlkin bout white n black ppl over-rall...Embarrassed

Yes, it is true to an extent. We have derogatory names for every community. In North, anyone with Oriental looks is Chinky, anyone from South is a Madrasi, anyone with dark complexion is Kalu, every Rickshaw-puller/Mazdoor/Daily wage earner is a Bihari and is a 3rd class person, we are taught since childhood that Banias are cunning people. Everyone loves to make fun of everyone else. Don't how it is in South and other parts of Country. Our movies also share the blame, they still portray people in a streotyped fashion. Pata nahin yeh sab kaise khatm hoga? Ouch


Deepak racism is against other races.Embarrassed What you mentioned is true and does make us "bigot".

But we often confuse the term "racism" ! Its only meant for different races-  Africans, Caucasions, Chinese origin, Hispanic and our race -India, Pakistan, Bagladesh makes us of the same race.Embarrassed

That's true,but honestly speaking,in india,there are just pockets blacks,caucacians etc...Here,sublta racism exists,and that's  in the form of discrimination based on colour

Actualy if we think about it,the roots of racism is actually the difference in skin tone,and difference in looks....and isnt that the criteria based on which we indians discriminate fellow indians...In fact,what we practice is wore than racismDead

See this is a funny defensive mechanism. If others are racists , its fine for us to be racists!!!

Here we are analysing our own behaviour. Its like before we go accusing others of something lets first answer do we do the same thing as them ???? If yes !!! Then we shouldn't expect any better treatment from others towards us !!! Before pointing fingers lets see do these fingers point at us too.

If you can safely say No, then you have every right to call another racist !!

Thanks Aparna for allowing the thread. Embarrassed

Yes I too have seen Indians passing derogatory comments to students from African sub continent. Indians neither befriend them nor do they respect them Cry. Actually Indians exhibit their worst behaviour towards black people Dead .

We do not spare white people either & call them firangi & terming all white women as "loose". And perceiving them as means to fulfill gratification.

But wld like to add here that some of the African students do get subsumed into the drug trade. Further the white women esp from erstwhile USSR practice flesh trade in the metros.The rising tourist influx to Goa has its share of pedophiles and many people suspect everyone to be that. People start suspecting all & label them as criminals & use pejoratives for themOuch.

I am not justifying this act. It still is deplorable but apart from the orthodox Indian mindset Dead of fair is beautiful there are actions which boost it.

Very well said Aparna. Clap
We need introspect ourselves before feeling offended at what others inflict upon us.

May be if I see more and more of the Desi-Back marraiges, I will subconciencely start taking those in a stride too.


Interesting point abhijit. I would not refer that to racist mentality for all people. There might be some who would take it taht way, but if you look at black community..general impression we have is they don't go to school, they are not educated, which lead to poor family value and all the things taht we indians give very high importance to. So rather than a color it is more like we don't prefer some habits and lifestyle. I don't mean to say all white are educated, but if you compare we see blacks just strolling around, doing nothing, etc.
