Brown Cookie takes the cake:
Shilpa Shetty wins Big Brother
|by Ishita Russell|
It took one person's comments to unite Indians the world over. Jade Goody's remarks just came as a rude reminder of the racism prevalent in the society. There was a huge uproar, votes poured in, diplomats got involved. Final result: Shilpa Shetty emerged as the winner of a 100, 000 Pounds. All India's rejoiced at their victory and went back into their slumber of ignorance.
It is astounding that a TV show could actually be responsible for almost causing a diplomatic accident or even undermining international trade talks.
A prime example of the "white saab's" dominance. Indian's are willing to forgive a foreigner for racism but not one of their own, when a Dalit enters a so called high caste temple.
When our western counterparts are more welcomed into our shops than we are, the problem does not lie within the UK or US.
We are blind victims of racism, who refuse to realize that only if we get over our complexes and know that the brown skin can be superior to the fair, can we rise above shedding tears over on man; or in this case one woman's comments.
