This is how Sangita always sees her parents. She also offered these two very important comments:
“my dude ahmed ali akbar has this really adorable tumblr project highlighting awesome desi dads who clearly exude much radder vibes than the archetypal pejorative stodgy/dweebish uncle stereotype. find your parents’ coolest vintage photos and submit!”
“not to get all political about it or whatever but a lot of immigrant kids grow up hella internalizing that racist shame about their parents’ cultural idiosyncrasies as really weird, embarrassing and generally uncool. it’s so important to make deliberations to reverse that sort of thing”
Sangita’s right though. This is totally political. Love yr dads yall.
