Amer, I think you are right in pointing out that even though he claims solidarity, AC is still careful to stand apart, otherwise, why would he emphasize his hinduness, enlightened though he may think it is, and start his article with “Hindu Indian”?
The white Christian murderers are morons who can’t tell the difference and it really doesn’t matter to them, we are all the same. But we have to stand alongside any victim even if we can’t be mistaken for them.
Tripathi is just as ignorant and out to save his own skin. He reminds me of the “lower tax” Trump wallah’s in the bay area. When I would point out his comments about “Brown people”, the response would be “but he doesn’t mean _us_ brown people yaar!”
