1 in 2 Indian-Americans discriminated in past year: Study

A new study has revealed that one in two Indian-Americans have reported being discriminated against in the past one year ...

The study titled, ‘Social Realities of Indian Americans: Results from the 2020 Indian American Attitudes Survey’, was conducted jointly by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Johns Hopkins-SAIS, and the University of Pennsylvania. Released in June, it is the third in a series on the social, political, and foreign policy attitudes of Indian-Americans.

“One in two Indian Americans reports being discriminated against in the past one year, with discrimination based on skin colour identified as the most common form of bias. Somewhat surprisingly, Indian Americans born in the US are much more likely to report being victims of discrimination than their foreign-born counterparts,” the study says.
