By default, anyone who is racist is a shitbag but it takes a special kind of shitbag to do what Mindy Kaling's brother, Vijay Chokal-Ingam did. You see, he's against Affirmative Action because he believes it is a disadvantage to Asian and white people (LMAO). He did a social experiment where he shaved his head, trimmed his "long Indian eyelashes" as he described it, and applied to medical school as a black man.
Yes, you read that right.
He pretended to be black so he could get into medical school.
The school of his choice was St. Louis University School of Medicine. He went by the name JoJo and while there, he joined the Organization of Black Students.
He is in the process of writing a book about his experiment called "Almost Black" and on his shitty website he claims "Almost Black will be a compelling book the changes social perceptions of race relations, affirmative action, and competitive university admissions."
I mean...where do I begin with this? Is this even legal? Couldn't he be sued or arrested for pretending to be someone he's not? Also, how many times do we need to remind anti-Affirmative Actions advocates that the majority of schools in this fucking nation are white and a hefty amount of students are Asian (including Indians)? If Affirmative Action was racist against white people, that wouldn't be the case. And how the fuck does he know that he was accepted for "being black"? The list of reasons why this experiment is fucked up can go on forever.
Let's be real. He's not mad about Affirmative Action. He's mad at the thought of a black man getting into medical school over an Indian man. I get the feeling that Mindy and Vijay grew up in a household where they were taught that they were inherently superior to black people. Think about it. How many black people does Mindy Kaling have on her show compared to white men? It's no secret that Mindy loves white men and probably thinks they're better than other races because she grew up wanting to be white.
I was fine living in a world where I didn't know her brother existed until five or ten minutes ago. My faith in humanity shrinks once again.
