Racism towards Africans living in India

It’s difficult to raise issues against racism in the West, especially when those in your homeland can be even worse offenders. Many Africans are treated like second class citizens in India, with open and violent forms of racism.

Never do European immigrants get treated like this in India, so why do Africans? India has a deep rooted issue of a caste system, while also treating fellow dark skinned Indian as inferior. Just open up any Indian beauty magazine and you will see for yourself that every woman would be passed as a European.

It doesn’t help that the government state that the recent attacks are not racially motivated (when they clearly are). The real issue is a lack of education towards other cultures around the world. But I guess you can’t expect much when Indians have so much complexity towards other Indians.
