Racism...seriously?

No matter how progressive we are technologically, whether we like to admit it or not, we're all racists. This may be shocking to believe, but all our racist feelings emerge from our own minds, and prejudices bequeathed from our elders.

Why are we racist? We have certain opinions, experiences, observations and family members which causes the growth of such feelings. The best example would be Chetan Bhagat's 2 states. That book was a narration of his life story, but unquestionably, there were elements of racism against South Indians, people who live in his own country. The other similar example is Chennai express. Both book and movie jeer at South Indians for not being like North Indians. Sad.

Sorry for not being loud, boisterous and shameless like you North Indians. Oops. I'm racist. Sue me.

The next time you go to a foreign country and someone makes racist comments about you, don't shut up. Retort with vigour, but if you face it in your own country, then all I can say is, even your middle finger won't do the trick.

I don't have a solution to this problem, but I would like to ask Rohit Shetty who is a South Indian, how he can be racist against himself, after watching Chennai express, I wondered if any other South Indian thought that.

So far, nobody has bothered to attack him, or sue either Bhagat or Shetty, just because they are on top of their game. The world is not going to change anytime soon.
