via Ferguson riots show US racial tensions in black and white – The Times of India.

Firstly, let me state that the killing of Michael Brown was a tragedy by any standard.

Whilst I agree that there are still enormous racial challenges and indeed inequalities, I fear that position of the TOI was verging on inflammatory.

There are enormous Indian communities in the US. Indian students want to go to study in the US in order to work in the US after their education. Surely, if so many Indians prefer the US, the racial inequality as suggested by the TOI can’t be that bad?
