Does that indicate racism or honesty?

I know from having lived in Canada that they're sh1t scared to be seen as racist. That doesn't mean many of them aren't racists and I heard some racist views expressed.

It's because Iranian & Indian women are some of the most beautiful women in the world.

Their husbands might be worried that they'd like a bit of strange!

The level of racism in a country can be affected by many factors such as education, exposure to other races, geography etc. It's quite a simplistic piece of research.

I live in a detached house because I don't like anyone living next door to me irrespective of their race.

They might report the screaming......

I'm not surprised by the Indians, they come to the West and expose their very snobby mentality. The thing is, they have nothing to be snobby about, given that their country is a dump.

The indians have internal migration problems, its not clear if they might mean people from other ethnic groups within India.

To your point on snobbery a lot of indians think they invented everything already, they had nuclear weapons developed some of them think as there are stories of mass destruction in their old scriptures for instance. Indians do I notice stick together in their work environments, when they are in a multiethnic workplace.

Really? I know plenty of Indians and they are pretty nice and tolerant people. The more fundamentalist Hindus might be bit more racist than usual but I've never met one (or at least one who identified as being fundamentalist).

I do kind of agree with your comment about the country being a dump, how many multinationals have treated it like one? Bhopal springs to mind.

Ireland wasn't polled, and if those six counties show up blue, then that result is a big, big lie.

And so is Pakistan's response a lie. At least the French and Indians are honest.
Brazil looks like a multiracial success story, I would like to hear a Brazilians take on this though - I would say there is a lot more to that story.

From Indians that I have met and from what I have heard they come across as being up their own arse. I'm talking about the educated Indians, you know the ones who benefit from the caste system in that country.

And do you think Australia is correctly represented?

Which way are those footsteps going?

I find the history of the Indian subcontinent very interesting. As you probably already know, their belief systems share quite a good deal in common with the pre-Christian spirituality of Europe, due to the common origin of the Indo Europeans/ Indo Aryans.

Also, they dealt with an Islamic onslaught and managed to drive out the Muslim invaders with a ferocity equal to that of the reconquista on the iberian peninsula, although they werent completely successful, as we see today with Pakistan.
