    Is this racism?

    I'm watching some local newscast and they were talking about the spelling bee contest this evening - the caucasian white woman anchor says "well, all the qualified contestants in the final are either Indian ....or atleast Asians!"....


    sure enough they were all Indians....I think there were a couple of Chinese and atleast one African American......how can she say they're all Indians! is that racist or what!

    If you think that is racist...you would think this is racist

    "pakistanis can't spell" example "looser": means loser on gupshup.
    Now repeat after me...."Jeter is the prophet and Rivera is the savior"

          ^haha

          This spelling bee thing is soooo in these days. In most desi parties, kids talk about who won the spelling bee in there school and then in the district. I suck in spellings, so it is annoying to be around these kids. Thank God I have a few in my family who are in the high school football team! It is always fun to be around them.

            The desi gatherings I been to lately have been all about who is on what chapter of Quran and who knows what surah by heart. I was amazed!

              I don't think anyone can be more racist than a Caucasian white woman...

                    homer, I'll make sure I refer Carl and Bob to you when they come around to do my biography....you really keep track of these things?

                    let me improve your life a bit - take flight, check into Mirage or Bellagio, slip 50 bucks to the guy who is dressed like musharaf. He will get you a visit by a couple of fun loving gals - go down to the tables with them, let the cash flow and you will forget all your spelling blues.

                        Nah Its ok, don't worry so much. Spelling is the only thing that gives them upper hand when it comes to finding clerical jobs, especially in western countries where they donít wanna be like Afghani/Pakistani hard working taxi drivers. They are just lazy indians.

                            r we talking about the same contest which a indian kid anurag won and scopped £14, 000 pounds in + some brittanica goodies? anyhow i don't think that's racism it's more like a cry of misery or jealousy for that women, not having many white kids dominating the proceedings. rather immature and uncalled for.
