    Years have gone and the world different societies still haven't changed. White racism towards darker skin societies exists even today. When india was ruled by british colonies, indian people were dominated by whites. History says that m.k.gandhi a lawyer was working as stretcher handler in boer wars. So when m.k.gandhi returned to india sporting a circular stop-watch. The time must have been similar as are seen today. And at that time there might had been olympics and various sports events in white countries. And indian athletes were not allowed to participate in white sports. Only a soccer and hockey participation in 1900 by indian teams. So was the freedom struggle by india for gaining rights in white sports? Was m.k.gandhi a sportsman? In movies is the white crystalline salt lakes were infact creatine consumed by modern sportsmen? Was india back in 1900s a major producer of creatine? In modern day only england and south africa give support to darker skin societies even in sports. Comparing old times there seems only few things have changed...technological broadcast and just cars!

    I'm afraid I don't quite understand what you're trying to get at.


    "I almost went to bed
    without remembering
    the four white violets
    I put in the button-hole
    of your green sweater

    and how i kissed you then
    and you kissed me
    shy as though I'd
    never been your lover "

    When during the indian freedom struggle the slogans they posted on placards saying- 'simon go back!'. Was simon a viceroy/chancelor who played as a batsman for england in england Vs india princely test cricket matches held in india? So the indian freedom fighters might had been sports lovers cricket fans!

    Varna, Caste, and Other DivisionsAlthough many other nations are characterized by social inequality, perhaps nowhere else in the world has inequality been so elaborately constructed as in the Indian institution of caste. Caste has long existed in India, but in the modern period it has been severely criticized by both Indian and foreign observers. Although some educated Indians tell non-Indians that caste has been abolished or that "no one pays attention to caste anymore," such statements do not reflect reality.

    Absolutely there is. Don't you agree?

    Yes I do agree. I have ( as a white person ) experienced racism first hand, but guess what, I got over it.
