One in two Indian-Americans say they face bias, even as many import their own prejudices into US
WASHINGTON: They are the second-largest immigrant group in the United States and wildly successful academically, professionally, and financially. But that does not inure the 4 million-strong Indian-American community from discrimination and prejudice in the US even as many of them channel their re gious and caste identities into America.
A new 2020 Indian American Attitudes Survey released on Wednesday reveals that one in two Indian Americans report being discriminated ag inst in the past year (during the Trump term), with prejudice based on skin color identified as the most common form of bias.
Somewhat surprisingly, the report adds, Indian Americans born in the US are much more likely to report being victims of discrimination than counterparts born outside.
The survey, conducted jointly by Johns Hopkins University, University of Pennsylvania and Carnegie Endowment, with polling group YouGov, unspools data that suggests discrimination based on skin color is the most common form of bias, with 30 percent of respondents report feeling discriminated ag inst due to the color of their skin.
An equal percentage of respondents—18 per cent apiece—report that they have been discriminated ag inst due to their gender or re gion.
Indians are the biggest racists in the world . They discriminate on the basis of color , caste , re gion , language , income ....but the moment they go to foreign countries they want perfect equality which they are unwilling to consider in their own country .
In the USA, the gun culture makes it all more lethal. You need to be a victim to understand it. No society is perfect what is wrong with demanding equality?
Count your blessings, you are in America. India is living hell under uneducated PM.
Indians are the richest community in US. Richer than whites. But they are a bunch of ungrateful people. The same people who cry bias in US will go to India and mistreat their maids, labor class people and lower caster people, throw around their accent and cm superiority just by virtue of being NRI. Such hypocrites.
If you leave our beloved country , that is going to happen. Modi ji is making india #1 in the world ahead of us europe china and rest of the world on paper and by revised indian method of calculation. Adani went ahead of jack ma in just 6 years. Magic of our modi ji.
Haha first need to get counted in the top 100. Modi has no magic wand , it is take effort of every Indian.
It Happens Here in India As well !! 50% Govt Jobs to Lower Casts !! More And More encroachments expected Near Future? Rests on Contacts Or Cor ions ?? So No Justice Left for poor Middle classes??
Discrimination is everywhere in this world. Even in India some people discriminate with all sorts of denominations and it is unfortunate but real.
Add to it, south Indians talking to north Indians in US in Hindi! Enemies of common enemy become friends.
I faced more bias in India and then in UK. USA has been excellent in acceptance except for 1or 2 instances. I once had a Jain guy telling me that they are Aryans and superior to me, South Indian.
If you migrate to new country, you are suppose to adapt some of the living habits and cutoms of the country. For example you should be careful shouting in mother tongue wth your friends while sitting in Bar and get booze.
We indian face discrimination from our fellow Indians, so please don't compn about American for discrimination. We deserve that.
Nothig surprising and perhaps nothing wrong . We Indians in India have strong bias for all the people who don't follow our re gion or our language or our food habits and so on . Let us learn to show same respect and feeling for people who don't follow our re gion or language or food habits and so on .
Want to be treated fairly on a foreign land whereas treats fellow citizens with great disdain in their own country how ironic.
in the whole world I would say we Indians are biggest discriminators based on skin color , caste and relegion . I am sure every individual faced it inside India.
and 100% of Biharis face prejudice in Mumbai and the list goes on! Wake up guys- USA is literally the BEST country on the face of this earth- it has people from all 200 countries in the world
without biharis,mumbai wont work.
Its not just US.. within India itself indians face bias when they travel to other states..
Beard Fungus Feku
all Indians face bias in their own country..... it's a big deal.....
Indians are top hypocrites and racists of the world. When they are in India they show total bias towards other Indians from other states etc but they want special treatment in US for them.
Well, as soon as you step out your country, you will be never treated as same as you were in your home country. You only realizes this over a period of time! Home is always a home.
Come back to India
