why afro/desi people would wish to be white and why that idea has such amount of acceptance is deep rooted in a century of imperialist rule and the consequences of servitude. somewhere deep in our minds we still are slave to the western world and believe in its superiority subconciously.you need to take a look at micheal jackson to realise,how far this inferiority can lead us. the other day there was a pyschatrist trying define animosity between middle east and western world on discovery channel. he traced the impact to the fables, hatred and fear handed down the generations from the bloodsheds during crusades. comparitively the struggles and bloodshed, the feeling of servitude and being less is fresh in our memories since we have been independent state for merely 60yrs. someone us still have relative that have lived in those turbulent times.
I have seen so many desi people have some sort of a superiority complex as if they're better than Mexicans or African Americans.
also many bollywood movies show non-indians as immoral and sex starved people. HELLO? India probably has the biggest population of prostitutes (most forced to work there after their own family member sold them), women are molested in trains etc. and yet Westerners who have cheonsensual sex are "immoral".
citing westerners as immoral is not racism.this more a case of ignorance and culture clash than racism.besides what to do you expect from the citizens of a country that celebrates virgins and sex within marital bonds when it comes in contact with sexually aware and open society. once again historically westerners exploited eastern cultures sometimes even in sexual terms and somewhere that memory exists. there are westerners who have a concubine on every continent simply because they can afford it. as for prostitution....there are many african , european and eastern countries that are way up high on the lists. as for molestation and rapes...unfortunately western countries are no better than india.
How many times in Indian movies do we see some ethnic groups being stereotyped? All the time and yet Indians complain that Indian characters in Hollywood are stereotyped. OH PLEASE..
also, watching Fair and Lovely etc ads are so embarassing. However, we got some desi girls where i come from who make snide remarks at girls with fair skin. I swear one time at a wedding these girls were backchatting about me and my sister and said "i bet they put whitening creme on their face, I am natural and tanned".. so desi girls with fair skin are fake?
kill me!!! but they are no more embarassing than watching the ads of tanning salons and those unnaturally orange tanning creams and bronzers. the simple fact is that we value the rarity more. indians are tanned lot so we value fair skin there, westerners are fair so they thirst to be tanned . add this fact to the superiority that we associate with fairness subconciously due to our history and we are a fairness obsessed society.actually westerner's obsession with tanning too stems from imperialist period, people who went to east or on adventures came back both tanned and rich, somehow subconciously in western world tanned became equivalent of class and riches. hence the current fight for being tanned all the time. btw those snide remarks you mentioned seem to be more jealousy induced than any form of racism or apartheid.
