Have you experienced this in the US? Asking Indians.

I'm Indian and these strange incidents happened in less than 3 years. In grad school, my first female friend and a date was a girl from China, seeing us together, a stranger White American classmate asked: "are you two together"? "How long do you guys know each other"? (The first time a stranger asked such question, we didn't bother!)

At my job, I have a teammate from China, one weekend we're out for lunch while waiting for the table and talking, a random white American dude in front of us turns around and abruptly asks "are you two together"? (that was weird!)

The third time, I was in TSA line at the airport, an Asian girl standing next to me lost her driver's license and I was helping her to find her license in the line, and once again some white American douche spits the same question "are you two together"? And no other question. (That was so fcuking annoying as if the dude can't digest the reality of Indian talking to an Asian). That girl didn't hear him and was more stressed about finding her license. And I ignored answering him!

And very recently, I was in the plane, next to an old Asian girl (of course 20 years younger looking than any non-Asian women) and we were talking about the Airlines food menu for purchase, and then some psychopath white American dude right behind our seat, abruptly asks, are you two together? I felt like spitting on his face. WTF is wrong with white American dudes?

    After the first two times, story is BS

    Cause it is weird to think the follow up if you answer “yes” or “no”

    What is the follow up usually?
    Also white people dont care if you are with an Asian girl. Asians and Indians do.

    This is a sad trolling attempt

    “and we were talking about the airlines food menu for purchase, and then some psychopath white american right behind our seat, abruptly asks, are you two together? “

    Such pure steaming pile of bullshit

    Ps: yes yes India is in Asia.

    This post is too real. As a white American man I feel strongly obligated to ask any Indian man/Asian woman if they’re together. It’s like an innate urge that totally consumes me. I must be mentally sick. Should I see a therapist?

      I don’t think you need a therapist but I won’t ask a strange couple ever if they together I just go with assumption he may have bigger bank balance or a bigger dick 😂😂😂😂😂😂

      I am also a white American man and I am so relieved to learn that I am not the only one struggling with the innate urge to ask questions whenever I see an Indian man with an East Asian woman.

      Just yesterday, I saw one such couple and could not help myself. I almost yelled “Are you two together?” and before I knew it, I also blurted out “ What car do you drive?!”

      So embarrassing.

      We should have a 'Culture' category in Blind.

      To clear up some ambiguities like this one - how do you (Americans) differentiate an Asian from an East Asian? And why would you, hooli.xyz, like other Americans, apparently want to ask questions just because you see two such people together? Why would you care?

      Ha..ha, nice, because, I've generally found Americans to be non-interfering & v civil in public spaces (which is more than can be said, ahem, for many Indians/ desis). Not generalizing, but holds true for ME. Laying out this caveat so I don't get the 'stereotyping' talk.

    Are you two together doesn’t mean that you guys are dating. Just that are you accompanying him/her.

    Not sure how was asking this innocent question racist?

    • VMware mjuuhghccv
      But why would someone randomly and abruptly ask that question. Most people don’t speak to strangers unless the situation warrants. I will find it weird too if someone asked me this question out of nowhere. If someone asked it in plane because they were looking to swap seats, well then it makes sense.

    There are good and bad white american dudes...but majority of them have a penchant for east asian women...

    There are good and bad brown dudes...but a majority of them will likely not prefer east asian women over Indian/White women..

    There are white/brown/black assholes everywhere...sample size 4 does not mean all white/brown/black men are assholes...

    First of all this story reeks BS. 2nd of all a real racist/white supremacist would only care if you were dating a white girl. 3rd of all the chances of having 4 different white supremacists start a conversation with you on exactly the same topic is 0. Weak troll attempt. The bar for a good troll is a lot higher.

    Non Americans are white too

    An Indian is technically an Asian

    If you end up making a female/male uncomfortable by any noticeable way, a logical ice breaker could be are you guys together

    I am unsure if American white dudes have a problem with Indians in general

    What's wrong with asking the question "are you two together?" Those people just wanted to know if you and your friend know each other. It's a simple question and you are taking it out of context. You automatically assume people who ask that question had bad intention. If you want to spit at someone, spit at yourself.

    You are pathetic and insecure. You are prejudice against American white dudes. You are the racist in this whole BS story.

      While I think OP’s post is BS, it is none of a stranger’s business to know if two people are together.

    Dude I am Indian and dated women of all races . No one asked me that question . Twice I got compliment that we two look great together . So either you a troll or Russian spy trying to fuel the divide.

    It’s a common question that Americans ask when any two
    People are together. Has nothing to do with race. Same would have been asked if you were with a Caucasian girl, another Indian girl, or even another guy. It’s just small talk,don’t worry about it. Kind of like when some Asians ask me how old I am, that’s not especially polite in US but perfectly ok in Thailand

    This dude was harassing Asian women and got politely called out. If it was in Europe, you'd probably get a beating instead of a question. Good try though 😂
