My Indian coworkers discriminate against... each other?
White euro dude. I am the only non-Indian on my team. I have heard the horror stories about empire building and such and was prepared for the worst. This is not the case at all on my team and it’s good work.
However, I have noticed that my Indian coworkers are fiercely racist (?) against their fellow Indians. There are three distinct groups that have formed, and they don’t talk to each other unless they have to. I admittely can’t figure out how they have organized into these groups. One all have darker skin and seem to speak a slightly different language but that’s all I can tell, it could be random and can’t differentiate the other two. Won’t eat with each other. Talk down about others not in their group. They leave me alone in this completely and all treat me professionally. The manager accepts this. What the f?
