Hari Kondabalu on Indian skin-color bias.

Colorism, obsession with fairness, darkness, all that shit, its our cultural poison. Can a people hate themselves MORE than we Indians do, to literally want to not look the way we do? If you watch our movies, you get a fucking skewed idea of what Indians look like — the truth is, we’re DARK. We are a dark, non-Aryan people. We have racial features that do not cleanly correspond to those of our European counterparts, no matter how many billboards Ashwariya Rai’s face is plastered on. Our hair is wild and coarse and very very thick, and doesn’t do the same kinds of things that white people hair does. 

I know that the vast majority of my desi followers agree with me on this stuff, but I always get one dumbass Indian guy wanting to know what’s wrong with having a “personal preference”.

Decolonize your mind, asshole. You’re not white, and you’ll never be white. And most of us are not high-caste brahmins, and fuck you if you want to be one.
