I see it on blind and start to feel others feel the same but hide it in work place.

Just curious,why? To me they are nice people.

    I dislike anyone with no culture. Mostly village people. Especially ones that got money now but still maintain their village ways. Like how chinese people spit gum in the urinals but wear Gucci.

      They have culture — spitting gum in urinals is a reflection of their culture. Be more specific; their culture is worse than ours, as far as gum goes.

      You'll love this.

      Last night I went to the dollar store to get a gift bag for a present. The guy in front of me was trying to return a couple of items to the cashier.

      Seems that's not the cashier's job and she can't help him.

      He held up there line for 5 minutes arguing about returning like $3 worth of crap. Then marched right out and jumped into his Mercedes and drove off. 😅

      @GHskann sure, you’re right. But also Gucci is not their culture. You can’t pick and choose. If you come here to work in tech so you should adopt the culture, fully. You can’t come here and keep spitting everywhere.

      I am benefitting from a lot of things that this country has to offer, but Cmon, culture is not one of them.

      For that I save all the tc I make to travel around the world.

    Closet racism that's rationalized with pseudo reasons. I've seen every single "infraction" Indians are accused of being committed in equal quantity by other nationalities and natives
    Edit: and tons of people who don't exhibit said infractions. But that somehow escapes notice. MAGA losers going to racist. They don't need a reason.

      There is no h1b in India. In fact, in many countries you simply cant get a corporate job unless you were transferred. Because immigrants and their parents haven't paid any taxes!

      Any team full of just Indians... Who parade around like morons, not even practicing English. A team of just Indians is a huge problem — not so much for the rest of us, but especially for themselves!

      Chinese and Koreans also do this, but Indians are more common (at least up in Seattle).

      Libtards: I’m talking about culture here. Indian culture, Chinese culture, etc. Yes, race is correlated, but not causal and so should be factored out of discussion.

    There is always that one Indian guy who did x that colors everyone’s judgement. Some people have had experiences with creepy Indian guys while dating, some have had experiences with a biased Indian boss who only promoted Indians or who micromanaged and basically they project the faults of that one guy on the rest of the people they know

    As an Indian American who's been working in LA, I've kind of avoided Silicon Valley to avoid the stereotype. Would love to hear how other Indian American's are treated up there.

    Also how are Indian Americans treated by Indians who are above them? Personally I don't know much about our culture outside of some holidays, don't speak any Indian languages, although I can understand a little bit here and there. I grew up in a pretty caucasian republican county, so I consider myself a light skinned Oreo lol. Brown on the outside, white on the inside. I'm definitely ranting a bit, I've never felt comfortable around other Indian people outside of those I've met in our little community.

      My experience are that American Indians are treated like white people. The other Indians figure out quickly that you’re not from Mumbai or insert familiar Indian City, you don’t like cricket and have an open western mind. That means your out and they try to avoid you.

      To Indians, indian Americans are what they dont want their children to become. Most Indians come to US thinking they can benefit from US wages, but that only works if they take savings in dollars and retire back in India. ......but when their kids are grown and married in US, they are torn and realize they are Americans now.....and they dont want thwir kids and grandchildren's career earnings cut short by the same system of immigranting scab labor.

      I have lived in the US as a teenager for almost 3 years and then came back here for grad school about 3 years ago. If I have seen anything then it's that Indian-Americans mostly hate Indians from India to the core, especially Indian men.

      Indian-Americans are mostly nice to Indian women, but holy shit are they vitriolic towards Indian males. I have seen tons of Indian-American women immediately unmatch Indian males on apps they moment they learn they are Indian from India and not Indian-American.

      The ABCD, FOB divide is true and big. I saw glimpses of it as a teenager and knew that I will stay the fuck away from ABCD's when I return back.

      Indians in managerial positions treat Indian-Americans fine cause well you're Indian(in a way).

      Indian women gets accepted by males of all due to mostly physical attraction. If your a hot women, most guys will be attracted white or Indian.

      Indian guys and other immigrants get judged by women in America by their status , power. H1B indentured servitude is no power my friend which most people assume.

    I have observed this with Indian engineers than with non-Indian - over exaggeration of the work they did and impact, and quick to call something done when in fact that something is barely working or still broken. They tend to take easiest path to show they've done something rather than fully thinking out what's needed. This tends to create lots of extra work for everyone else.

    It of course starts with existing racism (conscious or not), and then they have an odd negative experience with an Indian. And boom the confirmation bias kicks in, and all Indians are like that.

      People want balance. They dont want to be forced to eat only indian food, celebrate indian holidays, feel alienated, undercut in wages, sold out by own politicians, told that they are racists and that being white sis is not ok, etc. When they've paid taxes and went through the system all their lives.

      Do you want to live in little India?

    At an indian store, I saw Indian guy argue with Indian store owner for 10min over $1 in late fees of bollywood bootleg video....thats how cheap, entitled, egotistic they are.....explains a lot of harassments in silicon valley.

      I attribute that to 3rd world up bringing. Indians translate $1 into however many lakhs and the buying power of it in years ago back in India and tginks of all of the opportunity costs. Thats why they fight and get aggressive over little things which makes them generally unpleasant. No problems with immigrants with more progressivr mindset or their children....so certainly not in the dna but a behavior that can be fixed but unwilling.

      What you are admitting though is that it is true.

      Now this is not limited to Indians but certainly does include them.

      Talk to any Indian has been here for 20+ years and they are not proud of the recent entrants...

      I'm not admitting anything. It's your story you said it happened. Do you want me to deny that it happened? What kind of shit logic is that?

      Why do the 20 year ABCDs have to be proud of the new entrants? Are they in some way an approving party? Whose approval is some how significanct?

      Even if it does, why does it bother you that he negotiated for a dollar?

      See... All of this is you making what should be insignificant into a mountains because the dirty Indian is doing it.

      Your logic follows from your contempt not the other way around. I'd encourage you to have a honest introspection on this.

      Initially I felt bad for the store cashier, but then he felt that it hurt his pride and had other customers wait in the line while he settled his score with a douchebag customer. Wasted 10 min in line because of this.

      Also what makes you think that im not indian?

      And yes, he argued for a dollar, he needed it, you don't know his circumstances. That dollar may truly be a lot of money. He may not be a resident. He may be a visitor or a labor who exchanged his rupees for that dollar. You have no business judging until you know everything.

      His mother was probably proud that he made every attempt to save money to provide for his children, family, to build a better future. What he did is not unethical or illegal.

      I would teach my children to be frugal and save money in any which way they can if they feel the need to pinch pennies.

    Their tribal mentality has no place in western society.

    And also tools used as scabs.
