The Layers Of Racism In India

As the Cricket World Cup began last month, I saw some posts on social media that had what can only be described as racially discriminatory content. One made a jibe about the West Indies-Zimbabwe match, asking viewers to increase the brightness of their TV sets. Another poked fun at the English-language skills of a certain Pakistani cricketer. Around the same time, incidents of violence against Indians occurred in the USA, raising a hue and cry in India over racism in America.
