I have a suspicion  that the ‘ native ’  White Man in the Immigration Department of the U.S. of A  tends to look down upon anyone with a dark skin-tone,  even if it is only a wee bit darker than his own …

He looks down on ‘Blackies’…
He looks further down on ‘Brownies’…
And for all I know he might even be looking down on his own fellow county men if they happened to sport a deep sun burn from a long Caribbean holiday.

Looks like they all are programmed  to do that,  I mean , Look Down…

( I wonder how they dare walk across  a busy U.S. street full of  fast moving traffic  with a head postured like that! )

Otherwise why the American Immigration guys did what they did to two of the visiting Indian diplomatic honchos in the recent past ?

In the wake of the 9/11 incident maybe their  spontaneous  suspicion of any thing that moves or crawls into their Great Country on two legs ( and perhaps even on 4 legs or 8 legs ! )  is understandable…
Up to a point, that is. No quarrels there…

But getting fiercely neurotic about it is carrying things too far…especially if that is colour biased…
They seem to be throwing to the winds the internationally recognised and binding Vienna Convention  on Diplomatic Relations,  not to mention flaunting their puffed-up arrogance , and it is nothing short of sheer nerve!

A few weeks ago it was reported in the Indian newspapers that a top envoy of India at the United Nations was forced to cool his heels in a Houston Airport in the U.S. of A, all because  he wore a strange looking head gear –strange for them, that is !

These Immigration blokes wanted him to remove it so that  they could  take a peek to see whether the poor guy was carrying any armoury within it ! But surely you can’t hide an AK 47  in a ‘turban’, Man !
Or,  maybe nobody told them that!

Apparently this Sardar was made of sterner stuff and more than a match for them. So, he got god-awful angry and refused to cave in. And when his face turned blood red with a deep flush on it  the Skin Colour Checkers’ decided that the guy was after all not a ‘Brownee’  !
So they let him in , in the end!

Coming close on its heels was another incident where a woman diplomat, in fact the Indian Ambassador to the United States, became the next victim at Jackson-Evers Airport in Mississippi . She was even frisked, ( hopefully not by a Male ! ), an occurance unheard of in the annals of Diplomacy !
The poor lady  had to face this  humiliation because the “sari” she wore became her bane. The Skin Colour Checkers thought she was up to no good by simply looking at her skin colour and quickly concluded that she sure was carrying a moderately sized Paton tank in her sari’s vast folds ! ( all of 5 yards, y’know! )

In both these cases all that the Indian Authorities  did was to make some loud and

squeaky noises through their rear end and leave things at that!

That maybe because we are possibly a bunch of gutless  guys…
Or  Maybe we are bunch of  guys with a weak spine which was made considerably pliable, especially in the backward direction, by the British during their plundering days…

Otherwise why did  we not do a ‘tit-for-tat’ act with some of the visiting dignitaries from that land of milk and honey? On the contrary, they  blocked an entire suite of hotels for the entourage of “Oh!Bama” and rolled out a blood-red carpet welcome for them….!

Maybe we get what we deserve…

Would these Immigration blokes have dared to mount  such a disgusting act against a man or woman come visiting from any of the muslim countries ?
Or would they have dared to do it to a French guy ?
Or would they have dared to do it their cousins from the distant Islands of  UK ?
I doubt very much!

As some wit said, ( or was it me?  I wonder !  ) …

You can’t choose your father…
You can’t choose your mother… or for that matter,
You can’t choose the colour of your skin either…

Cut a Whitie and he bleeds red…
Cut a Darkie and he bleeds red….
Cut a Brownee and he bleeds red too!

Unless the guy happens to be an Alien from the outer space, in which case the bloke bleeds anything other than red,  or so these Sci-Fi guys would have us believe….!

Underneath , we are all of the same stock of  Homo-sapiens…with the same strong sense of Dignity …( I don’t know about that Alien chappie, though  )

I hope these  immigration guys  would read this and do something about it ! 

In the meanwhile,  I would suggest the following solution to the intending ‘

colurful’ visitors to that Great Land of Skin Colour Checkers…

Try it, it is a sure shot !

My Octopus Act…

Hello Folks,

For 2011 I have done an Octopus Act with a new Theme for my blog,

that is more in line with my temperament…

The Octopus changes it colours to gell with the environment it is in,

in order to  escape from its predators…

And to put its preys’ minds at rest !

I don’t have any predators but I have preys…

YOU!

You who visit my site!

So there!

Hope you folks like it!

I do!
