China and India have a huge problem with racism toward black people
Wait til they discover Latin America

Just minutes before his birthday, Masonda Ketanda Olivier was beaten to death. The Congolese national was confronted by a mob of men late at night last Friday in New Delhi and killed. Police said the incident was a dispute over the hiring of an autorickshaw; Olivier's friend, an Ivorian national, said it was a clear hate crime, with racial epithets repeatedly invoked.

This week, irate African diplomats in the Indian capital pointed to Olivier's murder as evidence of wider discrimination and bigotry against black people who visit and live in India. Olivier, who reports indicate was about to turn 24, was teaching French.

While India is home to a dizzyingly diverse, multiethnic and multilingual society, prejudice abounds.
The author sounds mildly surprised.

It's always funny when white progressivists discover that their pet minorities don't tend to play nice with each other. In particular, it'll be very interesting to see their reactions to mestizo-on-black racism.

Which - if Los Angeles' ethnic cleansing campaigns are any indication - will be a much bigger issue for the latter than microaggressions. Or someone poking their hair without permission. It would make Indian and Chinese efforts look downright tame by comparison.

If genuine white racists had any brains, they'd be advocating for lax immigration standards in Mississippi and Louisiana.
"Those in the crossing must in the end know what is mistaken by all urging for intelligibility: that every thinking of being, all philosophy, can never be confirmed by 'facts,' ie, by beings."

You are a sadist.
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations.
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection,
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.
