Racial Identity

Not open for further replies.


Dear Friends,

This is another controversial subject matter. But it's worth a look just the same, because it involves understanding the Indian's racial identity.

Throughout history, travellers to India have described Indians as dark-skinned. Whether it's Tsang describing the east of India, or Marco Polo down south, Indians have been consistently described as dark. Even Kashmiris are described as dark-skinned, when travellers wrote on Shaivism.

But in modern India, we see skin color becoming lighter as we go way up north.

So we have on the one hand,

* Northies who are fair
* North which has been a prey to one foreign invasion too many.

It isn't that hard to put two and two together. Indians, especially in the north, have been slaves for centuries upon centuries. And we all know what happens to a captured race. Even today in the so-called enlightened age, we see 'modern, enlightened' Americans violating women in Iraq and other occupied territories. God knows what must've happened in the dark ages. Suffice it to say Indian women were subjected to such brutal violations by foreign invaders. Hence the lighter skin color of the Northies.


Does it follow that Indians couldn't possibly have a racial identity, on account of this bastardization? I am using this term for lack of a better one, so please don't be offended. Considering these historical facts and the current scenario where Indians look different in each location, does it mean we're a bastardized race, as the westerners allege?:flame:Is this why Indians perform poorly in every field? Are the race theories true, after all?

Though controversial and perhaps politically incorrect, it's time to get it out of the closet and have a 'rethink' on this matter.
