Jameela Jamil seems to be making fantastic strides in the industry.
I find it interesting it’s only after she’s divorced herself from Pakistani culture.
Also it goes without saying that white Hollywood is better able to appreciate her exoticness than either India or Pakistan, who would demand her to be shorter (so as to not tower over the Male co-stars) and several shades lighter (Mahira Khanesque).
A friend, who is involved in the social activist scene in Cam, made a pretty profound remark that “the hypocrisy of UC South Asians of the West in pointing out the micro-aggressions of West all the while ignoring the macro-aggressions back home.”
The discussion of caste on this blog has been a revelation. I find it hilarious that when I go at Islam with a sledgehammer there’s fairly strong (if silent) support among the commentariat. But when I talk about casteism & untouchability (which is actually more evil since it potentially affects 700mn-900mn people / Islamist terror has at best killed in the tens of thousands?); I’m suddenly asked for facts and figures by the Brahmins..
Talk about a blindspot!!
