We are not racists; there are black people around us, if we were racists how do you expect us to live with South Indians, said former Rajya Sabha member and of an India-African Parliamentary Friendship Group, Tarun Vijay at a TV show.


He was called for a talk show by Al Jazeera to speak about racism allegations against Nigerians in India, about four students being attacked in the Greater Noida, recently. The Nigerian students in the talk show said that they were not feeling safe in India. We try to blend, but we are looked down upon by the Indians. They look at us suspiciously with regard to our food or even clothes, they said.
