Sandip Roy: Bangalore Rage

Indian officials play 'racism dodge ball' in Bangalore.

While we have energetic social media arguments about whether an African American star like Beyoncé showing up in a Coldplay video all hennaed-out as a Bollywood diva, is an act of cultural appropriation or not, some of our fellow citizens are thrashing Africans who live in our midst because in the eyes of a mob, one dark-skinned African is as good as another.

There is something truly rotten about that.
