I reblogged your post *and* added a bunch of extra commentary, but another thing that bugs me: when people think of places like India as one solid bloc of cultural/ethnic cohesiveness. We’re not. The cultures and peoples of, say, Northeast India are very, VERY different from those in the Deep South. Not all Indians speak the same language or eat the same food or look the same. And we’re definitely not Middle Eastern (something else I’ve also heard).
