Racist anti-indian article , Time magazine..

" For a while, we assumed all Indians were geniuses. Then, in the 1980s, the doctors and engineers brought over their merchant cousins, and we were no longer so sure about the genius thing. In the 1990s, the not-as-brilliant merchants brought their even-less-bright cousins, and we started to understand why India is so damn poor .." Joel Stein, Time magazine, July 05, 2010.

The passage which has enraged the Indian American community in US. 

Is it not a fact ?? Why should anybody object to such bare statements of truth .. we have seen incidents where people have been taking their immediate relatives, far relatives and so on in the name of immigration, especially around New Jersey area .. Geniuses, semi-geniuses and non-geniuses ..

Looking at the other side of the coin, does John Stein forget the fact that once upon a  time he too, or his forefathers, were immigrants like anybody else on American soil ? The irony is that the original owners of the land have been killed, sidelined, cheated and pushed to the outskirts by the immigrants to exploit the land and its resources for centuries .. And they call July 4 as the day of independence from the British !!
