Racism in india???
What is racism and is it prevalent in
We can say racism is a system that discriminates people based on their so called ‘race’. Some say that dominant groups in the society are racist, coz it is that group which has the influence and means to oppress others.

Its high time south is taken seriously.

This is deep rooted and will take a long to get out of the society. This is a poison that we have lived with for more than 1000 years. We have just started to uproot it.
P.S. Not all the people are like the way I mentioned.
