    Truly is there racialism in the USA? Never. There have been cases where an African-American shouted at a light skinned Indian that he or she is from KKK! In reality some cases of so called racism are due to sick people thus can be referred to as racism, though no society is perfect.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The Punjabis being rather dark-skinned and color conscious often have trouble as they want to be light-skinned. Priyanka Chopra does have an inferiority complexlt;br/gt; and little education.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I have seen the pretty Nadars of TN who are pretty dark in top positions in the USA. This hype is being created by the foreign infiltrated Indian media. Recently a Punjabi women (pretty dark) was referred to as Lebanese by a Jewish gentleman. This is not racialism but just a comment.

      I would mention that USA is devoid of fracialism in general Sometimes the slant-e and and pignosed Chinaman are targetted as the Chinaman looks totally different. Why blame the Americans?

        PC gives a very common experience at all airports as an example of racism in the US. The biggest perpetrators of this experience are the airlines operating from china and Hong Kong and Korea. Their mostly Asian staff are deferential when your skin is white or you are dressed very extravagantly. In fact I find that white and Hispanic staff are least discriminatory. Often I have been told 'this is business cl line, economy line is over there by staff of East Asian and some middle eastern airlines when traveling business. They are also more accommodative of white travelers at their lounges. It does not bother me as they are stereo typing business cl travelers. Sooner or later, the 3rd world person will be part of this stereo type.

          Priyanka and SRK - Why is it that when you are successful in the USA, it's because it is a place where true talent shines.lt;br/gt;Then, you face some lame incident of dis-enlement at the airport and suddenly it is "racism against all Indians"
