I am a 21-year-old Asian Indian living in America. As you all know, the Indian population is increasing in America because of the demand for computer specialists. I read in newspapers that some Americans are attacking Indians in states like New Jersey and Connecticut. What’s the reason? Don’t immigrants have a right to be successful? How long will this feeling of ‘foreigners are taking our jobs’ continue?

I work for a successfully run Indian computer consulting company, and it seems to me that some Indians have the conception that Americans are out to get them and are jealous of them. That is not true. Maybe the Indians you think are targeted in New Jersey are victims of random acts of violence. You don’t know that these crimes were motivated by Americans’ hatred to Indians.

This is a response to the comments made by ‘white male who earned his degree’. So you may have met a few unsavory people of Indian heritage in school, but to generalize the behavior of a few and hold it against an entire group of people is simply ignorant.

I would like to say to the white male who earned his degree that you shouldn’t stereotype all Indians to cheat. Also, are you sure they were cheating or were you jealous because some of them were doing better than you?
