Yes, Indians are racist, in fact, greater than Australians too. Bloody double standards everywhere in our society.

Deep down, we all are, as ico said so.

Its a strange thing to boldly say that "I'm racist", isnt that something to be ashamed off? No wait, racism implies acting like the Ku Klux Klan right? Shouting your fact across the roof? :|

We both have similar ideas. However, the fetish of Indian men for white skin is well-known.

^Caste arrogance is the root cause of racism in India.

Caste arrogance is just because some are poor and some are rich....so money is the rooooot cause.

Are Indians racist? No. A lot of Indians may be xenophobic, but the prevalence is no more than it is in other parts of the world. Bring up a SINGLE country in the world where you think there is no racism. We are just more open about it, since there aren't 938493 laws in India to keep our sentiments bottled up.

For those who think Fair and Lovely concept represents racism, it doesn't. Fair and dark skin in India represent skin tones, not races. And contrary to the way it is portrayed in TV commercials, women rarely ever get rejected for a job on the basis of their skin colour alone.

As for matrimonial ads, the demand for lighter complexion is just a fetish. It is not racism, any more than my desire for slender women with beautiful face and good legs.

What about Bal Thackrey's initiative for non marathis to quit maharashtra??
What about Andhra Pradesh's policy not to allot medical seats for non telugu people??
The SC ST and OBC reservations are also a type of racism only

problem is people are racist ,but they won't agree nor they will say we aren't .

I will say dividing the society in the name of upliftment i.e SC,ST,dalit this or that is itself is a kind of rasicism .If that was less ,now politicans wants to add caste in censushmm

anyway ,its just too much to write and my fingers aren't in a state to write anymore .:(

edit : just found this topic is about colour racism .thread title is misleading .we should talk racism as a whole .

Racist or casteist or religious or whatever, we do discriminate among ourselves and foreigners too. A visit to rediff forums [comments below all news(?!) articles] will definitely put any pround Indian to shame.

I smell contradiction.

Indians are a bit racist towards the foreigners they don't know until they get introduced and become the best of friends. But the main point is that Indians are racist towards other Indians (each other). Be it from different state or the same state.

Everyones a racist. We Indians are but atleast not how it is in other countries. Trust me we are way better off than other countries but still are a very racist group.
Luckily we have so many different races here that its not really that much of a problem. Seriously when have you last read in the news that a certain someone sued someone else for being called "black" or refused a job due to other criteria (stupid ones)

That reminds me of Air India trying to fire older air hostesses. Unfair. But it sucks travellin g in our national airlines for the same reason.

As for the embarrassment abt the fair and lovely jokes. Its a universal fact that everyone makes fun of people from other cultures. Do the same. Dont shut up and blush like a bride.
