Well, I'll be damned!


Appalled.
Thats what I am now.

For some reason, I not only find this blog repulsive but also sad, in a sense that our country has to put up with a shit-load of racists like this.

Not that I'm a confirmed Rajini fan or a Dravidian-fanatic (except when its Rahul Dravid we're talking about), but its the constant battering of the so called 'Dravidian' race
(the dogmatic way of referring to the southies) like they belong to a completely different lineage.

What in heaven's name are these guys trying to do...that too in a public forum???
Friggin Racists!

in a word... yuck!

Mark IV said...

god! please.... this would have been stupidly racist back in 273 BC. its damn 2007 now! with inter marriage, jumpin about for food and fun, globalization, western influence.....

aryan my foot! you couldn't identify aryans and dravidians now... rajastan and UP have just as many 'blacker' skins as chennai or hyderabad or bangalore have 'fairer' ones... and trust me- unless one has some pigment problem we are all just 'Afro-Americans' of 'Asiatic' origin (whatever that means) in the wild wild west

err...sorry, but whose side u on again?

Mark IV said...

as usual... no side... i think the guy who wrote the news is an idiot... not because i think he said something racist, but because he assumes a race (fallacious 1) and assumes its superiority (fallacious 2).

and a half score idiots have to fight back because they assume they belong to the race he poked (fallacious 3)

thats like saying everyone without a mole in their left palm are idiots cos bush does not have a mole in his left palm n he is undoubtedly an idiot!!!!

you know i didn't read that blog... maybe it's racist...and if it is damn him....

my point is, as far as i know, we are from a different lineage... that is, the north indians as you know are aryans.. the race of people who migrated from europe and iran..and dravidians are a distinct race known to be from india and who were driven to south due to the aryans....that's why they are now present predominantly in southern india and sri lanka...anyway...

bharani said...

just another point...was not talking about the difference to bring out the difference in race..."race" is an ugly term...has a negative connotation...i was trying to point out the difference in "ethnicity"....yes, dravidians are ethnically different from aryans...

maythini said...

We have enough cultural divides in our country..I could list all of them and they're causing us enough problems already. Lets just not keep reminding ourselves of the divide. Thats my plea to insanity.
Or wait...do I really care?

oh my God - this wasn't any good blog at all.. each person has his view points, after all, but if things had a tint of humour, it's always acceptable; this one, i'd term it as purely sarcastic - a very dry one, that just tends to widens the already existng schisms in India..
