India's north-easterners complain of racism

People from northeast India often face discrimination because of their ethnic links to Myanmar and China. Recently, a 19-year-old student from the region was murdered in the capital New Delhi because of his race. Al Jazeera’s Faiz Jamil reports from Bengaluru.

    My friend’s brother call me “chinese didi” and I just let them. Because whats the point of explaining. We cant keep fighting to be accepted by those ignorant mainland people.
    So I just let them call me that.
    Even though I originate from Manipur.
    Racism is everywhere and no matter what we do ,they will never accept us as their own.

    • convado deltaro19 says:

      I am a guy from Assam (Kalita caste), I have Aryan features with extremely fair skin. I had to face racism in South India coz I looked like a North Indian. I faced racism in arunachal and Nagaland coz I looked like a mainland Indian. Never faced racism in the US and Canada coz I am good looking and I have a natural American accent. I feel more at home in Mumbai than in guwahati coz I look so different than a stereotypical North Eastern.

    • OG DOGG says:

      @convado deltaro19 same bro

  • Beverlee Ogues says:

    So sad to the northeasteners,, the truth is your beautiful than them,, they are a DISGRACE of India,,they don’t know hw to respect tsk tsk tsk!

  • qolspony says:

    Fear of competition from China might have something to do with racism.

  • qolspony says:

    These same North Easterners would have some problems in China as their skin tend to be darker. What it looks like is they share some of their ancestry with the much darker indians.

  • Bishwarup Borah says:

    Racism is every where.. Even in the northeast… It’s created by lack of opportunity when some one from different place then yours threts to take up mojarity of the jobs and business..

  • I Have Watched all youtube Videos says:

  • Johnny Smith says:

  • Anonymous Naga says:

    Northeast were never conquered by indian we became apart of india after british rule by force not by choice.

  • The Great Gatsby says:

    I am from NE India, guwahati Assam. I did my entire schooling from ukg to 4th year btech NIT TRICHY in South India. Not once have I felt that I was an outsider. I lived and loved my Tamil, Telugu friends. Everytime I got back from my holidays in college I used to take the early morning bus from city to Nit Trichy campus, I looked at the people and I always felt that these are my people, I always made sure to help the busy Tamil traders carry heavy vegetables into the bus. I look at them and all I saw and felt that they were MY PEOPLE.

    Don’t portray the entire India as anti ne. We gave our blood during Japanese invasion of India in Nagaland, Assam regiment. I would gladly give my life for India. Jai Hind. 🇮🇳

  • Shubhashish Sengupta says:

    1:36 note how the educated man rightly points out the kind of people that are racist. And then we get to see two filthy locals making such comments. The first guy is a rickshaw driver and the second one is a lowlife Nike sales worker. Now, no job or profession should be considered small or inferior but honestly, they are the exact kinda people that fit into the the category of people mentioned before.

  • S Pfokrehreii says:

    • CERBERUS 96 says:

      @Jenny’s Cradle hmm fellow alvinophile

  • Peta Gonkyi says:

    Racism is systemic and if the caste system is not racism then what is racism.

  • Peta Gonkyi says:

    The auto guy who is talking dress revealing is blind to the belly and cleavage exposure especially in South India who wear Sari.

  • rakesh malviya says:

    Muslim are creating distance between Hindus through marathi UP Bihari GUJRATI North East etc propaganda . I am asking one question that why Muslim are creating problems in Assam and other north east India. They want to divide India for their own benefit. One day India will become Malaysia where hindu are minority.

  • Jenny's Cradle says:

    I just wanna strangle those people commenting on the way we dress. If you will come and visit the northeast, the way you dress is also inappropriate. but guess what? no one will care, because we respect people’s culture and we are educated contrary to your beliefs.

  • TheTinminator says:

    IT’s funny how other countries makes fun of different race, when in fact, over here in America, (and i know it wrong) but we make fun of India 7/11 “wood yuu like a beef herky”. Seem like racist exist everywhere, but yes definitely the lower/poorer/uneducated ones are the ones that does this type of things.

  • Lu Th says:

    india is high racism without latrine🤣🤣

  • Eidssiam Hanghal says:

    There are many mainland Indians in the NE too. I met an incident where a drunk guy was racially abusing a Bihari in Manipur. But the public bystanders help in favour of the Bihari! Which will not happen if a NE people get abused in mainland India, the public bystanders will join the abusers too! Yes, I’ve seen such incident in Delhi, even though the NE guy did nothing wrong!

  • Duv Duv says:

    I don’t find this surprising. Just take a look at how North Indians view us Sri Lankans. That’s the reason why I boycotted Bollywood (epicenter of racism) and I decided only to visit Peaceful states like Kerala, North East Indian states and To Bodh Gaya for Pilgrimage since I’m a Buddhist. This video just ruined my entire day.

  • GM P says:

    I love my NE brothers and sisters. I hate racism and any form of partiality. But here are some opposite views on what i think is missing from our brothers and sisters from the NE.

    Please try to integrate yourself more with people from other parts of India. I remember when a person from north India comes to South, he bring sweets from the north and vice versa – see how the north and south developed closeness. Our brother and sisters from the NE should understand this relationship. Please move out more, migrate more, integrate more, make friends more.

    Further, develop your state and your industries (tourism, etc.) that people may throng to your states. Your states are already so beautiful – please make use of it.

    North Indians love south indian food and south Indians love north Indian food. Please open more restaurants for NE food across india.

    Please send your children for education to the many universities in India (south or north). Don’t just restrict them in your homes and farms.

    Let your children rise in ranks in offices and their jobs. E.g. why is it so rare that we see any person from the NE at a high company position? Come on guys make yourself known – make an impact.

    I believe there are many more such points that my friends from NE can think and ponder about.

    I hope you take this positively. You are not just Indians, but you are our pride.
