The writer notes that Indian-Americans (this gets confusing, with Indian-Americans and American Indians) are the wealthiest of all ethnic minorities in the U.S. But it also notes that they are the least likely to marry outside of their group.
I have no problem with that latter fact, but though enclaves of unassimilated immigrants and their descendants are a problem, a greater problem would be the blending of the myriad diversity-bringers. The latter, of course, is what our globalist overlords are pushing.
''The first Indians came to the US between 1904 and 1911 as farmhands. They were then described as caucasians, and could become citizens and marry US-born whites. But that changed. Immigration from India was prohibited in 1917, and a 1923 Supreme Court decision called them non-whites. The gates were thrown up in 1965 with new laws.
Indians started landing in waves, mostly through student and temporary-work visas, accounting for more than half of H1B recipients in 2011 (there have been cuts since). Their successes make the community the most prosperous and educated.''
The historical information on Hindus or Indians in this country is interesting, as most of us don't learn much about their history in our country. I would say most Americans never saw a native of India in their towns or neighborhoods until well into the post-1965 immigrant flood, after which they have slowly become a common sight in many localities, even my small town.
But their material success in this country has come at the expense of our own folk. I know a number of people in IT jobs who were displaced by cheaper labor from India.
Again, this kind of article warms the hearts of the 'colorblind conservatives', the ones who tout Nikki Haley and who have faith that Bobby Jindal is going to be our own (Republican) Mocha Messiah.
There is a persistent faction among supposed ethnopatriots or race-realists who always seize on a chance to cheer for their fave minority, usually Indian immigrants (they work hard, they are highly intelligent, etc. etc.), Chinese, or even Hispanics (''hard-working" and "preferable to blacks," etc.
It never ends. For a while all we ever read from the 'journalists' whose job is to promote 'diversity' is how deserving the Hispanic illegals were. We read endless sob stories about how they are deprived in their own countries, and treated unfairly by us. Now we are reading and seeing more pro-Asian propaganda, more ''model minority'' stories. Maybe the propaganda-masters are shifting into a new campaign.
