Indian Cinema : Being desi in Trumpland

Being desi in Trumpland

Jins Thomas, originally from Kerala, works in Philadelphia and voted for Trump. He is a manager with an American multinational that has contracted a lot of its IT work to an Indian company. “I see a lot of Americans losing their jobs. I feel it is not fair,” he says, adding, “My brother-in-law was laid off when his job went to an H-1B guest worker.” But he agrees that the travel ban is extreme and unfair.

Support for stricter immigration laws comes not entirely from white Americans — many among early Indian-origin immigrants who are now U.S. citizens strongly support it. They fear for their jobs but are also suspicious that unregulated immigration might dilute what they think is their own hard-won integration, rights, and status.

" Her 68-year-old father was selected for an additional screening at the Washington Dulles airport recently, a first for the U.S. citizen who has been living here since 1983. “I don’t want to speculate or make assumptions. But when you have all this other stuff around, you suddenly feel it may not be random anymore,” says Mythili. Her friend, also an American citizen of Indian origin, was standing in a queue at her regular grocery store in Cleveland, Ohio, when someone suddenly yelled out, ‘You are a foreigner; why don’t you go back to your country.’ “She was completely taken aback,” says Mythili."

These things will only go up in future. Forget Vikade, not even you are absolutely safe, Ratso.

‘You are a foreigner; why don’t you go back to your country.’

Forget Vikade, not even you are absolutely safe, Ratso.

Ah, but then, unlike this unfortunate woman, I have the perfect comeback: "I'll go back only after you crawl back to the s*h*i*t*hole country your ancestors came from, filthy trash scum!"

Having lived in America for a long time, I've realized that you earn respect only if you can give back in the same coin as you receive. This is not some fool's paradise of a Gandhian world, let me assure you.

the funny thing is these idiots say that even to Mexicans in Texas. I mean, Texas was part of Mexico, and then one day they drew a line while the people stayed where they were. These Mexicans were in Texas long before the Americans came, and they are being told to go home.

Re: Being desi in Trumpland

It is like doubling down on stupidity. The whole world is ashamed of America at the moment but right wing lunatics like ratso believe that America is doing something great.

Re: Being desi in Trumpland

It sickens my mind to see that brown ppl voted for trump... I feel ashamed / disappointed as a brown man... Wtf were these ppl thinking??? ( or smoking??)!!!

Re: Being desi in Trumpland

Well, there are probably brown people disappointed that an idiot like you expects all browns to vote the same way and have the same opinions.
