    I was doing research on the Siddhi/Siddi community in India and Pakistan and came across this video. Its amazing how the influence of white supremacy plays a role even in a land of melinated people. Obviously India forgot how the Siddis got there in the first place.

    Thats correct. Whites are the ones that made up the races and racism. Worse than that they claimed to be the best. Before that people practiced nationalism or tribalism

    You do realize that Hindus killed and brutalized many many many Muslims. In India castes and family bloodlines determine status and child labor is prevalent. You should probably use a different country as an example.

    Not sure what your comment has to do with my OP? I used India for a reason. It points out how Africans were recruited and given positions of high esteem but in the after math of white supremacy they are now considered bottom of the barrel. Their society originally worshiped Black gods and preferred darker skin at least during the time Marco Polo visited the area.

    Race was a concept created in Europe. That is where racism began.

    Brother Shashi Tharoor has some insights on this matter.



    Mind you he is speaking to the English about their racism at Oxford. This is a bold man.

    Much respect.
