We desis visit to foreign countries for higher studies, earning livelihood, and most of us settle there with our family/partners. However, it doesn’t come as easy as it sounds. There are many incidents where Indians have been subjected to racism in the West. Even global icon Priyanka Chopra was called ‘brownie’, ‘curry’, and things like ‘go back on the elephant you came on’ when she was studying in the US.

And such racist attacks still continues in the West. We have a proof. A shocking video of four Indians being attacked by an American woman in Texas has sent shock waves on the internet.

The video posted by @davenewworld_2 reads, “the incident occurred in Dallas, Texas after my mom and her three friends went to dinner.” The viral clip shows the American passing racist remarks against Indian women and even smacking them at times. “You curry-assed persons are ruining this nation,” she says. When the Indians ask her about why did she walk up to them uninvited, the woman, identified as Esmeralda Upton, can be seen screaming at them saying, “Because I hate you f**king Indians, that’s why.”
