Nearly 200,000 Indians In America Are Bi

Bi-racial, that is. (But, to paraphrase Woody Allen, does being bi-racial double their chances of getting married to the perfect man or woman?)

According to the cover story appearing in my favorite free mag, Little India, nearly 10% of the Indian-American population is bi-racial. Which means one of the parents is not an Indian.

(Little India's website does not have this article yet...they are still linking to last month's issue.)

Well, what are you waiting for, say hello to your two hundred thousand biracial brothers and sisters!

So what are the remaining 90 percent Indian-Americans doing about it? Coz they're not known to be an accommodating lot... or are they slowly turning new leaves?

Dhiraj,

If I may further propagate a cultural stereotype, the remaining 90% are busy getting their law and medicine degrees :) I think every immigrant community follows this pattern of resistance and then comes the inevitable assimilation...
