ATLANTA (AP) — A former math professor at a historically black university goes on trial Monday in Atlanta, charged with arranging the contract killing of his black daughter-in-law because she wasn't Indian.
As prosecutors prepare to try the death penalty case against Chiman Rai, their challenge will be to prove that Rai was so enraged over his son's marriage to a black woman that he paid $10,000 to have her killed in Georgia.
Rai, a native of India, brought his family to the U.S. in 1970. He taught math at Alcorn State University in Mississippi, later ran a supermarket and then bought a hotel in Louisville, Ky., where he hired Sparkle Michelle Rai as a clerk.
She fell in love with his son, Ricky, and the two were wed. Prosecutors say Chiman Rai paid two brothers $10,000 to kill his son's wife.
In April 2000 Sparkle Rai was found stabbed and strangled in her apartment in Union City, Ga. just steps away from her 7-month-old daughter, who was unharmed.
Rai's defense attorney did not immediately return calls for comment Friday, but he has insisted in court that his client is innocent. At a bond hearing in 2006, defense attorney Mike McDaniel called Rai "as stable of a person as you're going to find."
The case went unsolved until two witnesses came forward in 2004 and identified Cleveland Clark as the killer.
According to a 2006 indictment, Rai teamed up with Willie Fred Evans to serve as middlemen, and they soon passed the money to brothers Cleveland and Carl Clark .
Carl Clark drove the pair to Georgia from Mississippi and Cleveland Clark carried out the killing, prosecutors say.
That's absolutely sad and I hope they throw the book at him!!!
THATS REALLY F*CKED UP
EVERY civilization came from the African Man and Woman. EVERY. Remember the bones found they named "Lucy?" Amongst thousands of artifacts, historical evidence, etc. So who the hell is this Punjab Patel mofo to put a hit out on a sister as if HIS bloodline is cursed? Our people give this human families life and look at the thanks they get? Ungrateful bastar ds. Drown that assss in a pool of ***/curry powder with two 500 pound quarter to *** black *** sisters from Nubia to watch him die slow.
Is it really that serious? ***, I'm sure he could've just paid her off... Idiot.
sooo f u c king sad man...this chic ain't do nuthin but be who she was
That insanly normal in India culture. I had a friend who hid her relationship from her family because because he was black she and did not want lose her inheritance.
Not to mention her uncle told her he would kill her and the bofriend if he was not of Indian descent. Thats basterd ment it too.
he could hav baught my black *** of for that hit-man money. I would have kept the dough and still been smashing that ***.
***.. speaking of racial pride...
Sounds like the guys from Mississippi Masala.
Righteous Madame if I am not mistaken I do believe the Indian civilization is older.
They are black themselves. They have the same problems with color that we have because of imperialism. That is why this is so sad. I guess we are the lowest on the totem pole
thats so sad..and the baby was right there by her..smh..what ashame,and just bc she was black,his father is an idiot,we love who we love,period! and the father is an ignorant a** who deserves to rot!
Indians for the most part are very "proud" people and no, they do not accept interracial marriage in their family. And they also have strong feelings towards their own kinds in terms of color. Most times you will see a dark skin Indian man with a lighter skin Indian woman, but not vice versa.
I'm not suprised the father would be against his son marrying a black girl- especially a store clerk. He probably didnt envision that when he brought his family over from India.
No excuse for killing her.
And a black family would be more willing( for the most part) to have an Indian marry into their family, then an Indian family a black person into their family ( regardles of their stature).
addendum : Indians wouldnt mind if a White person was married into their family.
What Righteous Madame is sayin is true. A British archeologist, Louis Leakey, identified the bones of a man dated scientifically at 2 million years old in Olduvai Gorge(Grand Canyon), in southwest Africa, that he called *** habilis or "house-dwelling man". Pebble tools were also found at this site. Africans travelled across land bridges that connected Africa, Europe and Asia, as from the findings of these same pebble tools in southwest Asia, Portugal and East Africa.
This is how some cultures are, unfortunately.
Remember the father who had his sons kill their sister because she "seeing" an American soldier!
What if we could kill our disobedient siblings, and children!?? Now that would be crazy!
Oh, and the next oldest reported finding of bones was in Asia(around China), which were scientifically dated at 1.5 million years old.
Look it up the knowledge is out there.
This story is so sad coming from a female that has a east indian mother and african american father.It does remind you of Mississippi Masala??No amonut of excuses can justify a selfish evil act like this.Rai needs to be put under the jail .A young lady loses her life over the color of her skin,a baby that want know her mother and a son that knows his own father took away a woman he loved.My parents told me as a small child "We're all the same color when you turn out the lights."
He needs to get slapped in the face with a big pita bread.
I can't remember their ethnic backgrond but I caught a progam on television once and this father killed his daughter because she was dating a black man. He claimed she disgraced the family and people who brought dishonor to their family in their country is put to death. Well unfortunately he was in America so he was put to death as well. He should've known not to bring that nonsense here!!!
Okay. Those Indians and Muslims are fu.cking crazy! I said I would love to go to every country except the Middle East and India, Sri Lanka, etc. Their food taste aweful, they have a distinct smell. And they look down on women in general. So this doesn't suprise me. Actually though Indians usually mostly stay to their own kind so I can understand a little. What is so funny though is a lot of Indians are JUST AS DARK or darker than African Americans. So I don't know why some have a superority complex when compared to person of African decent. Why can't people let people love who they want. What type of sh.it is that?!!! I have been with my white man for 6 years. And some people don't get it. But what they don't fu.cking get is no matter what they say or how much they stare or whatever, we will do us. Ebony and Ivory:)
I remember when this *** happened...my grandmother still *** off at this because that *** owned a store in her neighborhood that she used to frequent....I told her to stop *** with them, but now she sees for herself how they really are...you can buy this over-priced expired *** out of my store but don't try and marry into my family....I can't stand them....
I hope he gets put to death. His pathetic life is over. He will be punished much worst that what he did to that woman. I never liked the people from India anyways. How you gonna be brown skin just like Africa-Americans and then discriminate? Those Indian people face discrimination and then discriminate. WTF!
What she means is that ALL MANKIND is descended from a common AFRICAN ancestor...it was also proven in the Human Genome Project as well. That's right folks, everything non-African is a dilution of some sort, did it blow your brains out to know deep down inside, we're all Black? And contrary to popular belief, its the other non-White ethnicities that hate Blacks the most, makes them feel closer to White-ness, even though my Indian neighbors are darker than me and my kids, the wife was so jealous when my daughters were born lighter than hers, and I'M the ***!
Wow well that just proves rascism is still prevalent as it was before. Just in different ways. That's a shame but I hope they have justice, because the child is without a mother. This is just sad and I wish the best for everyone involved.
@ the Black lady with the White guy.
Indians and Muslins are crazy? Well so are Black and White people. Since when did crazy come in a color or religion? If you're nuts then you're nuts. I don't care what or who you are!
I'm Black and my lady is Indian. She IS darker than me and we do have problems. What couple doesn't have haters? What individual doesn't have haters?
Also why say "Why can't people let people love who they want". When you could say "Why can't people let people love who they fall in love with". It sounds likes you prefer White men the way you put it but you have your very own White man, right?
She so proud to have a White man...like they're some prize! Boo, YOU should be the prize, no matter what race your man is...and I hate when people date outside their race and the dude/girl is ugly! If you're gonna attract attention to him, find a better looking picture, he looks like on of the family members from Texas Chainsaw Massacre!
Jensanbelle - BLACKS AREN'T THE ONLY PEOPLE OF COLOR. WEST INDIANS ARE PEOPLE OF COLOR AS WELL.
I DON'T KNOW HOW THIS MAN THOUGHT HE COULD COME TO AMERICA & LIVE IN MISSISSIPPI OR GEORGIA WHERE THERE ARE FEW INDIAN PEOPLE & EXPECT HIS CHILDREN TO STAY INSIDE THEIR RACE.
THE MONEY & LIFESTYLE IN AMERICA WAS GOOD ENOUGH BUT NOT THE PEOPLE? HE SHOULD HAVE JUST STAYED IN HIS HOMELAND. HE GAINED A BETTER LIFESTYLE THAN HE WOULD HAVE HAD IN HIS COUNTRY.......PEOPLE ARE NEVER SATISFIED!
I pretty much agree but....I haven't seen his picture but if he's darkskinned. He couldn't have done better in that country. Word.
THAT'S *** UP! THAT'S WHY I DON'T LIKE THEIR *** AT THE 7 ELEVENS. THEY'RE SO ARROGANT AND THE WOMEN SOMETIME THINK THEY BETTER THEN SISTAZ THINK THEY ALL THAT THE ONE'S THAT GET CAUGHT UP IN THIS HIP HOP WORLD. HE DIDN'T LIKE BLACKS BUT HE TAUGHT AT A BLACK COLLEGE.....UMMMMM ***.
Through my travels and experiences in the world, I found out a while back that Indian (not all) people are VERY racist against blacks!
They have an extreme disdain 4 our culture (or lack thereof) and principles!
I found it shocking and disturbing initially being that they are people of color. However, they DO NOT in ANY way associate themselves with us!
Many of them are darker than the blackest black man but they don't consider themselves black.
DAMMNNNN U MAKING A BROTHER OVER HERE THIRSTY!!!!! (.)+(.)= :) AHHHHHH
*** man, there are two pple here that have the nerve to say *** about ALL indians :@
how dare youu, just cuz some idiot does this doesnt mean that all indians are like that, most of them are smart enough and have changed now!! seriouslyyy there are pple like that of other cultures out there too not just the middle east! i can guarantee theres a good chunk of blacks that do this too! I'm indian livin in canada and everybody I know aint like that so stop hatin on all, only some *** are like that! that was wrong and i get it indians do have high pride *** *** but not as much *** e more ok! so i just wanna say that not all indians are like that so stop hatin.
SO TRUE, THEY WILL BE SEEN WITH A WHITE GIRL BEFORE THEY WOULD BLACK.
NO ONE ON HERE IS HATING. WE'RE TALKING WHAT WE KNOW FOR OURSELVES. FROM 7 ELEVENS TO DUNKIN DONUTS TO HOTELS OR MOTELS I HAVE EXPEREINCE NOTHING FROM THEM BUT LOOKING DOWN OR GETTING SMART OR THINKING THAT SOMEONE IS DUMB WHEN THEY TRY TO GET OVER ON U BUY SAYING SOME DUMBSHIIT LIKE U JUST WAS BORN YESTERDAY. SO NO ONE IS HATING.
Well just goes to show you that we still the rejects of this earth. SMH that's a sad story. I hope my in-laws don't put a hit out on me LOL .. My husband is middle eastern. BTW mixedlove, NOT ALL middle easterns disrespect their women. I've been to Saudi Arabia and Eygpt several times and the men carry the utmost respect towards their women. It's on the contrary here. The men in the states disrespects their woman.
plzz im not saying u specifically are hating
pple b4 ur comments have said stuff
i know u talken bout ur specific pple u did do the wrong thing
but im just sayin to other pple here that not all indians are wrong alright!!!
@ Punjabi_girl- Sweetie I grew up with Indian, Bangladeshi, and Pakistani friends and you're right. Not ALL are RACIST coward idiots. You always find bad apples in any group of people. *** we got some wicked black folks just as you have wicked white, latino, asian folks.
u didnt** do the wrong thing
To put it simple and plain. A lot of Indian people still believe in the ancient caste system from their country which is largely based on birth right and wealth. If you have taken a sociology course, then you know that America operates on a racially based caste system. So they perceive Americans of African descent as the bottom of the totem pole or lowest of the low. I've even had an Indian friend tell me his parents don't care who she dates as long as he is not black. It's *** up but some people still choose to live in ignorance today. Plus look at all the negative images of us projected all over the world in 2008 and some of that *** is coming form our us!!! real talk.
peace and blessings
exactlyy!! thanks for understanding CaramelSugarpie27 =)
I had a Vietnamese youth whose father was livid when he found out she was dating a black classmate; even threw a vase on the floor.
Another youth I know, was of Chinese (mom)/Caucasian (father) ancestry and her mother was adamant that she not date anyone black. That woman made the nastiest comments when that girl dated anyone black.
It's not just being black that has these fathers livid, it's the fact that they're involved with someone outside of their race.
A local Muslim had his own daughter killed after she dated a black man. He said she brought shame on the family.
Same thing in the Middle East. A woman who is raped is killed by her family.
And Native Americans, yes Indians, are among the the worst. A few years ago a young lady won a beauty title her mom (Native American) and father (black). The Native Americans were livid because she was mixed and didn't own her or the title she won. You'd think with the way Native Americans have been treated in this country they'd have a totally different perspective about the races.
*** to Sparkle's family........ real sad & tragic, she finished school a few years after me @ Spencer High in Columbus, GA.
yea...i hate that, and im an INDIAn...but guys, not all indians are like that, im an indian and i get alot of hate from indian ppl cuz im dark.
white *** black women show me more love than indian ***...so guys, ppl say color dont matter but when the issue in at their door step, its a diff story....
all i can say is...let ppl hate, let ppl love....
life is ***, be urself cuz u cant change ur skin color and love who you are for what you are...the rest leave it out!!
cheers mates gud one for all of you
I saw a case where the dad killed the daughter because she married a Indian guy from India...
He was not dads choice so he put a hit on both of them....with a hatchet.
I really would think as intelligent as these people are supposed to be, they wouldn't go by what they see on the tell-a-lie vision. I guess I should think that all these people ride camels, charm snakes, and ride through the desert in 115 degree heat wrapped in garb from head to toe. That's what I see on TV so I should follow it, right(being sarcastic)!!!
And yes Native American people are azzholes too. My dad is Native American(my mom is black). They treated my Granddad dirty *** em. As my dad would say, "If I had 20 million 20 dollar bills I wouldn't give em 1!".
I grew up with a lot of middle eastern friends and they DO NOT TOLERATE disrespect of their culture. If a woman disobeys the wishes of her father, he may have his own daughter killed. They won't kill the sons, though.
I did, however, think the Indian culture was a bit more liberal.
Rental Cars and Hotels
Cruise and Resort Packages
Flowers and Honeymoon Packages
.... all for better than expected prices!
@ Kcire10 and others, You know if an Indian dad is upset that his daughter or son married a black person, it's his right. He is entitled to feel what he wants. In MOST marriage situations, people prefer their sons and daughters with their own people. That's just human nature. Black people are just too *** seperated and lack a cultural/ethnic pride to understand this. Most of us I'm sure would like their sons and daughters with blacks. We've become so accepting towards dating/marrying other groups because of the lack of cultural awareness we should share as a people.
BTW I'm not condomning the indian father's actions of killing his daughter in law because this is too extreme and morally wrong. But fathers' of different groups have the right to prefer their sons and daughters marrying their own people.
Get it right. These are individuals that do these things. You can NOT blame everyone for what one does.
Not all Indians are like this. Anybody can point to any nationality and point out the bad ones.
Indians don't like blacks, all they waNT IS OUR MONEY, THATS WHY i DON'T GO TO ANYMORE INDIAN STORES, i WILL GO OUT OF MY WAY NOT TO GO TO ONE, i REMEMBER IN BROOKLYN, A SMALL GIRL CAME DOWN JUST TO GET A NEWSPAPER FOR HER MOTHER, THIS INDIAN WAS TALKING SO DISREPECTFUL TO HER, LIKE GET OUT OF HERE HURRY UP AND PAY BEFORE i DO SOMETHING, THATS WHEN i JUMPED IN AND SAID DO WHAT, THEN HE WANT TO CHANGE UP REAL QUICK, AND SAY HE WAS ONLY TEASING, AND THEN WENT INTO HE CAN'T UNDERSTAND, THEY THINK THAT THEY ARE MORE THAN US BECAUSE THEY CAN COME TO AMERICA, AND GET BUSINESSES, AND LOANS THAT THE COMMON BLACK PEOPLE CAN'T GET, AND THEN JUST KEEP PUTTING THE BUSINESS IN SOMEONE ELSES NAME AND GET IT BASICALLY FOR NOTHING. PEOPLE WHETHER SEE ANYBODY DO BETTER THAN A BLACK PERSON, THEY WORRIED ABOUT BLACKS THEY NEED TO WORRY ABOUT MEXICANS, THEY ARE THE ONES TAKING OVER AND EMPLOYING EACH OTHERN THE MEDIA TRY THEIR HARDEST TO KEEP THE BLACK RACE DOWN And fighting each other, with false statistics, and evrything else for example I heard on cnn that 88 % of black people smoke cigarettes and only 63% of whites, thats a lie I know, everyone you see smoking cigs is white, you ride by businesses and who do you see the majority smoking white people, thay try to pump in a heads these lies to make us feel bad about ourselves...and any indians you think that white people respect you and don't talk about you....MY last comment and why don't most indian owned stores never put prices on things then when you get to the counter they say what ever price they want to tell you, and you can get the samething everyday and it will never be the same price
This is not strange to me. Indians are notorious for setting wives on fire and killing them if they are not obedient, suspected of cheating or disespectful to their husband's mother. Granted in all situations it is never all, but it is a reality in Indian culture, to save face and honour in the family is paramount. Hell they kill their own children all the time.
My only question is regarding the killers, Cleveland and Carl Clark. I am hoping these two are not black, because it would really *** me off royally for black people to be killing each other, especially a young mother by the request of an Indian. Why didn't these two turn this man in to the police, *** how can anybody kill a woman with a 7 month old child. I know poverty aint sweet, but to leave a child motherless for 10K.
Thats a *** shame, and that was the only reason he could find to kill that poor innocent girl. Now I don't like indian people.
wait... he can teach at a HBCU, but his son cant marry a black woman?? Something doesn't sound right here.

parris32-nobody needs to worry about the mexicans..they're HARD WORKERS PERIOD! they come to the U.S. to work and thats it..its a *** shame that people that already live here don't take advantage of the system instead you wanna blame the mexicans for GETTING off their (_|_) and getting a job? please
@ the topic, i agree with hot2trot...indians are known for setting their women on fire and throwing acid at them if they even look at another man...but we can't say this about all indians...hope the father does LIFE in prison and gets F*cked by blk men!
HEY NO NON BLACK PERSON IN THERE RIGHT MIND WHATS THERE KIDS MARRYING BLACK !
I'LL BE THE FIRST ONE TO SAY THAT !
I DONT CARE IF ITS MICHAEL JORDAN !
One time, I saw this very dark Indian cab driver go INSANE towards a *** cab driver who was just sitting in his cab.
The Indian was screaming the ***-Word, so loud and often, it was ridiculous. It was so disgusting, I called the cops. Who the f*ck did he think he was mouthing off those racist expletives. He looked like a complete fool, to boot.
This is a sad *** story and dude to at Alcorn...WTF See people just because other folks might talk to you or be in your face doesn't mean they reallly like or approve of you...
For him to be a professor at an HBCU and pull some mess like this should speak volumes to some of you who have the self-hating *** down-packed. And when I say self-hating, I mean always downing Blacks as a whole, downing Black men, and downing Black women all the while uplifting people of other races.
And for those who are uninformed, MS has alot of Indian ancestory there...Although I identify as Black/AA, I'm of Indian descent myself and know alot of other Blacks of Indian descent down there...
I had a relative who was dating this Indian girl and she got pregnant...She gave the baby up because they could not have a mixed baby on their reservation...So he and his mother took the baby and raised her...*** up...but it is what it is...
In my opinion, history can be very skeptical. I dont blame a ethniticity to want to stay with their own bc of values and or norms. I dont think that by doing so is stating that one is better than the other. I also dont believe that Indians are black skinned, they are red skinned. I havent met a Indian in my like that has features, hair or the same skin color. Also we support them to the fullest when we eat and buy what the are seller and YES we do have a choice. Maybe walk o longer distance drive to the next town but they are the ones who receive tax excemption and government grants to establish theirselves. I have not bought ANYTHING from anystore that has not donated contributed to the commnity that is dominatley white and or black. Why bc if Iam a penny *** I want to be able to walk out the store knowing I can pay in next time I come in. Its okay to be out for self and your own but I have a decision if Iam going to help others instread of helping myself and family and friends.
Lexia, First of all, there are plenty of BLACKS living on reservations, The Native Americans do not determine who lives there, The US government does... Did you even read the story? It has nothing at all to do with Native Americans; Chiman Rai is of Indian descent and from INDIA. They hate BLACK/AA! Gandhi hated BLACK people so much so that he helped the British fight the native Africans in an effort to help them to defeat the Africans and to prove their loyalty to Britain. He also hoped to helped Indians living there at the time to gain more acceptance by the Brits...The Brits told him, you and your people can bring us water and supplies, but that's about it. You will never be worthy of wearing the British solders uniform. So, he left and went back to India. He was a friend and follower of Hitler…because of their Aryan blood ties. They hate BLACK people!
The sad reality is that I believe that is exactly what happened.
@ADAH, I agree...Nothing wrong with wanting to see your ethnic group with eachother.
However, I draw the line at doing hateful things if they choose not to. It isn't that serious.
It is his right to be upset, but he has no right putting his hands, or paying someone to do so, on that person. People preferring someone to be with their own race is not human nature, it's a learned habit.
I don't care who my kid marries or wants to be with because that's their decision. As long as they treat them with respect.
And believe me, I stay culturally aware and there are many out there like me. Just because you don't see them on a daily basis doesn't mean they don't exist. We're just handling our business.
And as far as condemning old boy, I don't gotta do that cause he already did that to himself.
The statistics they put out always mess people up. It pretty much works like this: say 1,000,000 whites have AIDS in the US compared to 500,000 blacks. Now say there are 175,000,000 whites and 40,000,000 blacks in the US, the statistics make it look like there are more blacks(1.25%) with AIDS than whites(0.6%), eventhough there are actually more whites with the disease than blacks. But that 88% you have up top is wrong.
Wow how Crazy!
thats why I still continue to deal with these ignorant ***.g.g.a.s. at least I know how to deal
You go outside your race and daddy don't like you........*** u up in front of your child and end your life. It is that serious? Obviously
2 MIXEDLOVE : First and foremost how many muslims do you know?. As for your ugly fat *** marrying your white husband who may i add did himself a disservice getting with a whale like yourself. See how i judged you and i can bet you are heated well that's what it feels like when people just need to say something real or not it hurts people. By the way you should get a paper bag 4 that face
thats so sad!!!!!!!
That's horrible. And this is EXACTLY why MTO needs to *** it up with the interracial thing! I don't get how they don't agree with a black man being with a white woman yet report on this?!! With Indians its not really about being racist it's just their culture. I'm not condoning it but I'm just saying...
It amazes me how certain races feel superiority to other races and life itself sprang out of AFRICA. No race is better than the other, they each have their own qualities. If you think you are somehow better than me, think again. I feel sorry for those people, they are wasting valuable time and energy hating on people of other races for no apparent reason other than skin color. I hope that hatred consumes this fool long before he goes to the death chamber because it will. It was hatred that drove him to commit that unspeakable act, so you know what's up ahead for this pathetic fool.
I won't support any of their business, black people need to rebuild what we had. The best time for black business was during segregation. The Civil Rights movement focused on the wrong S**t, should have focused on economic equality instead of integration. We could have had a lot more today than having to buy s**t from races of people who hate us.
I am always amazed how some black people are shocked by stories like this. East Indians are very racist and prejudiced people especially towards black people. And to think some of them are as dark or darker than some of us. It was okay for him to work and earn a living in this country teaching at a HBCU but if his son gets to close to one of us, a black woman then he hires hit men to kill her. If guilty I hope that he spends the rest of his cheap azz life in prison and may his soul rot in hell if there is such a place.
yep yve i seen that on tv... actually it was her uncle... didn't like her finance so he had put a hit out on her and him... but the boyfriend did survive but the girl did got killed with a hatchet just to show those east indians are crazy as hell they even killed thier own smh
@ Brew62 & imabadchic You both confirmed what I've heard.
The truth is that even in 2008, the majority of cultures are still not accepting of interracial relationships (or even darker skinned of the same race). In some Middle Eastern cultures, males can kill their female relatives who simply disrespect the family with little or no punishment. It is more prevalent that you may think. Unfortunately, it usually only makes news if it happens here.
i remember this ***. dame shame
408kers, What the hell are you talking about? I am speaking from a PERSONAL situation that YOU know absolutely NOTHING about and I think I did say that I was...I know what happened, that little girl was given up and my aunt had to adopt her because her mother could not have her there...Don't tell me about plenty of Blacks living on the reservation because I know *** well that little girl could not live there...But she is still allowed to get a check every month because she's half Indian...*** the hell up and ask questions before you come at me...
Jamie please go and find you a *** to suck little boy.
@ jaming876 I dig your remix.
When reading some of these posts, it really makes me think. You can tell those who are book smart, street smart, both and neither. Sometimes, you just have to sit back and shake your head. It never ceases to amaze me how peeps will ebeef as if you are going to change anyone's opinion. Some get all hot & bothered, but at the end of the day, was it worth it?
I love this quote. It reminds me that we should strive to evolve and continuously educate ourselves, but we also need to balance that with common sense. As far as the observation, James 1:19 comes to mind. That is the verse about being slow to speak and swift to hear.
Someone once told me that a smart person a little bit about everything.
The sad thing about this is her husband moved to Chicago and remarried and his new wife didn't even know his first wife and daughter even existed...Makes you wonder about his azz too!
Interracial relationships are TOUGH...especially when the family don't like you. I just came out of one and his family members, some at least, pretended to like me, and then with time the truth came out. You can only fake the funk 4 so long. I for one got out of the relationship, because I don't have time for all of that DRAMA. Life is too ***, and I am too good of a person.I don't believe "forget the family, all that matters is that the two people love each other." Bologna! When you have kids and functions you will have to interact.They also didn't like he converted to Christianity and they are false Jews who do not even LIVE BY THE TORAH IN THE LEAST BIT. Hypocrites and evil doers. God will deal with them as he is a just God, and the seed that a man soweth, so shall he reap. Its very important to get in with the family, especially if everyone is close, if not, the in laws will make your life a LIVING HELL, and I refuse to put myself, or any potential children through that devastating situation. I am also very much family oriented, and will not subject myself to be ostracized because of my complexion and hair texture. Nothin worse than some people smilin in ur face and cursin you behind ur back. My sanity and dignity are too precious no matter how much I "love" him. Sorry.
You must live in a small town or something, I agree I've never seen an Indian with our features, the Native Americans ones are red and the some of the ones from India are charcoal black!
All of these other races are the "white man's disciples." Whoever he hates they hate. They all come over here brown nosing the white man, even though he's the one that dropped bombs on them, or took their land and claimed it as their own, while raping his women along the way! ETC.
They forget about the abuse he's heeped upon them, and turn their hatred towards us, a people who has never done a thing to them! We even marched with Jews, and they despise us and kiss the white man's *** to this day!
People will forever side with the people in power, just to score a few points with them and get a few crumbs along the way!
What the hell could she have expected? Did she think they were gonna live together in perfect harmony? Look at Hindis, Muslims and Asians history and you'd see what they do to their own people so what the *** do you think they will do to your black azzz.
Here's a new Saudi law: RIYADH - Anyone using camera phones to distribute pornography may face up to 1000 lashes, a 12-year jail term and a 100,000 riyal ($26,670 ($37,000) fine under a Saudi law.
And laws are carried out(most of the time) by village elders, not the judical system.
I know love is blind and your heart will dictate who you fall in love with but if you put yourself in a position to be with someone who's the 'extreme' opposite, just be prepared for the shock of your life. I know Sparkle did........
GOOD GOD!!! INDIANS CAN BE SOME RACIST ***. I HAD A GOOD FRIEND DURING COLLEGE WHO DATED NOTHING BUT BLACK MEN SHE WAS ABOUT MY COLOR AND BEAUTIFUL, BUT I'LL BET HER PARENTS DIDN'T KNOW. SHE ACTUALLY MOVED TO ATLANTA TO GO TO EMERY AND I LOST TRACK OF HER, BUT I WONDER IF SHE MARRIED A BLACK MAN. *** OUT TO SHALINI PATEL!!!
actually its not only Hindu indians who DO NOT like race mixing. its ALL of them! o and btw i live in trinidad, and the indians here are the same as everywhere else. yeah, they mix. but it is still frowned upon;
You guys put to much on it.
Lock em all up and execute them.
@Lexia- Just so you know, you're talking about a whole different kind of Indian. The people in the story are Indian from East Asia not American Indian.
Cant we all get along??
indians are the biggest racists on the planet and i hate those ***
Firstly, i'm Trinidadian and if u know anyting about my country is that the two major races are east indians and blacks.Indians have been in the West Indies since the late 1800s right after the abolition of slavery. I've lived all my life amongst indian ppl and so i know them to the core. I've had countless indian best frens and to this day i have indian frens who will go to the ends of the earth to help me if i needed it. but what ppl don't understand is that indian culture is very complex as not only race is involved here but the caste system as well. A man of a higher caste CANNOT marry a low caste girl and vice versa..he/she or both would be tossed out/ killed. Now i'm not saying that race realtions bet. blks and indians are always perfect in Trinidad but like a quater of the population is mixed. wat we would call a dougla but really means *** in hindi as in d early days. An indian can admire the blk race i.e teach in a blk school and still not want a member of his family to marry blk as they would fall below the lowest caste, the untouchables. I agree there is no excuse and i will not defend him but i must pt. out that in this man's eyes he was restoring his family honor. Note the baby his own flesh and blood was not killed.
I am a punjabi Indian and I think this is terrible thing this idiot did, but when you take actions of one crazy person and generalize to every indian as being the same then you are being a racist. Racism exists in all cultures and colors of people. Whites had slavery, blacks are racist against darker blacks. More whites are serial killers. Prison's have 50 % blacks, remainder are made up of whites and spanish people. There are white and black and other nationalities that kill wifes, kids and random drive by ***. but you idiots have the nerve of seeing one example of someone doing something wrong and generalizing to all indians. most indians are the nicest people on earth. sure there are some stuptid ones, but aren't there in every race. how often do you see indians in the news breaking the law and how many indians do you see in the prison systems. Most of you people who are posting here are clueless and are racists. By the way, Indians and Muslims are totally different people. Muslim is related to Christianity. it is near where white people live. near Isreal. quit confusing indians with Muslims. its like saying Chinese and white people are the same because they both have fair skin.
If you read the article, you will see that the people who committed the murder were Cleaveland and Carl Clark. Two Black men. so Can I assume that all black men are murderers and killers. Also can I assume all white men are serial killers and rapists, because I we see that on the news all the time. You cannot generalize the entire race by the actions of one carzy person. Earlier I read few articles of teen agers hiring hit men to kill their parents, or mothers killing their babies who were all white. Honestly ask your self who is being a racist here. Look in the mirror and you will find a true racist. YOU.
