    That's a lovely post you wrote but it does not change the fact that black people and other people with darker skin get treated badly in countries like India where light skin seems to set the standards of beauty. Giving us a history lesson does not change the fact that this mentality (light skin makes you more beautiful and means you get better treatment) is very strong among these people and it is not changing nearly as fast as most of us want it to.
    obviously there will be existence of racist ppl there, there is everywhere, you can go out of your house today in uk and bump into one.. and racism exists in africa too of course it does, for example a friend of mine who is chinese has been made fun of due to his race by black people in nigeria where he has worked for a chinese company.
    you are trying to to assume you know attitude of all indians, when indians attitude various massivley based onn their individual cultures and even micro-ethnicitiy. north indians are much fairer than you, but some south indians will actually be darker than you - they are both indians - there is 1.2 billion of us fyi/ actually the darker south indians i maintain are generally far more intelligent than the northern pale ones
    india has a few hundred of millions of kids that cant afford to go to school and have to go get a job from 6 years old - this does not set everyone up to be the world -wise tolerant person that will not be shocked whne they meet an african for the first time in their life - that is the reality of life.

    by this logic, Indians see white people as superior to themselves? Or does the whole light > dark only go to a certain level of darkness? If so where is the line drawn?
    Hmm, I'm not sure about that actually, I would say yes though. They prefer having a lighter skin tone similar to North Indians.

    Other than the examplary Nordic nations I think all other counties are struggling to deal with racism. Be it uk or India or even Zimbabwe.



    Are you used to users quoting you to say you have serious problems with life? I don't really do this, but I feel some of your posts are downright narcissistical
    No but if I was racist, I'd say that. I just think their way of thinking is messed up.

    depends who you ask - india is 1.2 billion plus people, thats more than all the white people in the world id bet. the darker south indians i know beleive themselves superior to their northern indian neighbours - i would agre with them at least they are smarter.
    then you have some that regard white ( european ) people as greedy and cutthroat, you can say this is a racist opinion, others see white people as successful and open minded. you cant make a statement like ' indians think this' we are all massively different

    Brown people are the most sick minded people out there, period.

    It's not rocket science

    Still shook by that comment? Can't handle what people say you probably shouldn't be on fourms. I'm up for a debate but your little condescending comments are pointless.

    As an Indian, I can say that I'm not surprised. India is a racist country, and Indians (specifically the older generation) tend to be so backwards. It makes me sick

    It all boils down to this:
    Dark skin = bad
    Light skin = good

    Then you're neither good or bad, just okay. Tbf this is only based on anecdotal evidence, but we all know India has a huge problem when it comes to colourism.

    Hello sir

    Firstly you cannot force wisdom I need to be guided to your post which I wasnt. Secondly please do not skin bleach because this cause harsh reaction in face and body and especially any sensitive area. You need to be confidently cocoa and you will see white woman will love you like kate love me to my inside soul. They will not like blistering skin and especially your ding dong. If you are getting maltreating from colleagues I suggest you join Malhotra Mystics where we all are nicely brown or you can use coconut milk which is nice to lick off for white woman after you soak skin in for 20 hours.

    Thank you.

    Aww it's fine, I'm optimistic for the world's younger generation. Hopefully as we all become more familiar with each other the world will move forward. And yes, I completely forgot agree
    As am I! I truly do believe slowly we are waving good bye to all this segregation....slowly! The younger generation is looking hopeful in my opinion. As an British-Indian girl, I've heard these racist remarks towards black people growing up but in my early teens I began to debate them with family members, my own parents etc. Now at 18, I find racism disgusting (along with other forms of discrimination).

    Indians are very intolerant people, they discriminate against themselves (cast system, colourism etc)! It's sad. I experienced a disgusting speech from my cousin in last summer when I went to Canada (she is born and raised in India, moved to canada 5-6 years ago) telling me how I should not marry a black man, how its "disgusting" it would be, and how black boys are "uneducated" (lol coming from her... I don't mean to offend, but she is beautician, so she didn't even go into any kind of higher education herself), I told her in England we have Black Lawyers, doctors, scientists etc so I don't know what you're seeing, also I'll marry whoever I want and it's not "disgusting", how is it disgusting? Idiot. -_- She is 26, I worry for her.

    She is also a homophobic and very transphobic, so intolerant in general.

    Her attitudes were gross, I couldn't wait to get back to England where I didn't have to surround myself with such grossness.

    I was born in Europe and I think it's normal to be homophobic and transphobic, you can't force your views on others.As for your cousin , she sound like a really nice girl I worry more for you.
