    Those people are of INDIAN descent? You had to tell me that.

    One of the first things I learned when I was in the Philippines for the summer was that the shade of your skin determines your social status in ALL societies.

    But it is only in America where that leads to racism. How’s that?

      Indeed.

      Worse still, over there in India, they have a huge caste system of social stratification, which cannot be changed or altered, it’s worse than socioeconomic class, which one can change.

      And even worse still, there are the outcasts or untouchables, Dalits, who are considered below the lowest caste. Though they’re less in danger of coronavirus as nobody is allowed to have physical contact with them at all.

        Every country has its “caste system”.

        Before I replied to you “3 responses to “Payback for the Raj, I suppose”” was displayed but I only saw my comment and your reply. I’m wondering where the 3rd response is. The WordPress comment system leaves a bit to be desired. I would have preferred to just “like” your reply and move on but that isn’t an option in the browser version of WordPress but I can do that in the app.

        The pingback counts as a response.
