SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE TARUN VIJAY'S BEST FRIENDS

Are Indians racist? The question itself is absurd, as anyone who has dealt with people from India realizes. Utar Pradeshis, Gujaratis, Punjabis, and other northerners happily call anyone two shades darker than themselves all kinds of things when that person isn't in the room, slander the Chinese and other East-Asians, excoriate Arabs, and when they let their guard down have choice terms for European types.

But are they racist?

We'll let former BJP Member of Parliament Tarun Vijay answer that.


"If we were racist, why would we have the south? Why do we live with them? We have blacks all around us."


So there you have it. Indians aren't racist.
Except, perhaps, for those Southerners.
The "other" in his statement.
They might be.


Tarun Vijay: "If we were racist, then WHY would we have all the entire south which is completely ... you know ... Tamil, Kerala, Karnataka, and Andhra ... Why do we live with them?!? We have blacks, black people all around us. You're denying your own nation, you're denying your ancestry, that's very bad. I think we can be as good ... or as bad ... as any other human community."


Major Gowen: "I took her to see India! At The Oval! -- The strange thing was, throughout the morning she kept referring to the Indians as niggers. "No, no, no!", I said, "niggers are the West Indians, these people are wogs!"."


Mr. Tarun Vijay is very fond of his "pigmenty" fellow Indians.
For whom he hasn't a racist bone in his body.
They are truly splendid people.
Good at cricket.

    Life got busy. Still reading but hardly posting or commenting.

    What is "Sounds Ashkenormative"?

    "Sounds Ashkenormative But Okay" is a Facebook group which used to be mostly peripherals, Sfardim, Bukharans, Persian Jews, Mitzrahi Jews, Teimanis ... and it used to have a sense of humour. Now it's mostly angry and rather ignorant people with a chip on their collective shoulder.

    They whine a lot nowadays.
