Not just all indian females need to watch this video to meet U.S standards of assimilation, but all migrants.
The video should also be watched by current citizens to maintain better standards, values and dress codes of assimilation.
Anyone not conforming to this videos standard, should be forced by our cultural police for re-education

Yes, I wouldn't sweat the OP's post to much. It's a clear case of "internet muscles" at work. I'm reminded of Time Magazine's Joel Stein who penned an article expressing feelings similar to what the OP expressed. Look him up on Wikipedia.

I call it liberal racism. It's not quite KKK level but more like "soft bigotry."

I think you're being just a tad too dramatic. Forgetting about the fact that they shouldn't be taken seriously, nothing in his posts can be interpreted as a call for violence.

But I'm certainly with you on condemning the (trolling) posts.

HELLO one of the things that makes America great is that we're a melting pot or do you disagree with that!?!


MoloTov, Jersey City is one of the most diverse cities in the world and has been for decades. And yet you created a thread to complain about it's diversity. It's like going to Italy and complaining that the restaurants serve pasta.

Think more, post less.

It's not a diverse as you might think, everyone stay within their own realm. Each neighborhood has their individual ethnic pockets. Heck even the tax brackets are segregated. Affordable housing and mixed income neighborhoods have no business intermingling.


Take your meds.

I'm sorry but the way they dress reminds me of the 3rd world and in my view contributes to the 3rd worldification of America. HELLO you're no longer living in freakin downtown Calcutta (which you should thank god for!!!) so unless you're just visiting here for goodness sake could you please just make some kind of effort to incorporate elements of Western style into your everyday wardrobe?

Disclaimer: I'm NOT a Republican/Trump supporter/Xenophobe/Uber patriotic America take it or leave it type


The disclaimer forgot to include; but I'm a bit of a nutter

Next we'll have individuals complaining about attire that Orthodox Jews wear or even the Amish, Catholic Nuns, Muslims with their long beards (but that could be seen as Hipster).
Seriously, who gives a siht what individuals or religious customs and cultures require people to wear. The only concern I would have is the covering of one's face in areas of concern ie; Banks and stores where even helmets or hoodies need to be removed to mitigate robberies and improve identification - I also would advocate that police need to power for women to show their faces when requested ... how else can one identify a person when an officer hands-out a speeding ticket!

I am perplexed why the OP values "elements of Western style" --whatever those are--over and above "traditional Indian garb." Of course, I am concerned about the unabashed racism, misogyny, anti-semitism, xenophobia, and general intolerance of the original post and a few of the replies. But I am also genuinely confused by the logic. I'll take a stab at it: the OP is dismayed that he cannot spectate more women in yoga pants? Is that it? You're losing McEyeCandy to those bewildering and confusing sarees that just don't tickle you in the right places? You're a LuluLemon gawker unwilling to give up on the taut contours of spandex? You want a parade of flesh finished with the proper fabrics and dimensions of fitness chic? Those traditional garbs are just too upsetting in a late capitalist world when you're reminded that other cultures exist and perhaps unconvinced by the oh-so-hot Cosmo body you crave?

Might I make a suggestion to help you cope with the diverse attire of Jersey City? First, find a mirror. Second, take a moment to scan your body from white sneaker to pastel polo. And next, strip--strip it all--right down to the last thread covering that pasty bod. Finally, I want you to scream. Loudly. Hard. Make it hurt. You see now, right? Your flesh? Its irreparable hue: that skin that reflects the shame, anger, and judgment you keep seeing in other people?

You seem unable to understand that 1st gen immigrants run a huge spectrum that tend to vanish by the 2nd. Some Muslim immigrants wear chadors, others wear blue jeans. I live near McNair, whose students are overwhelmingly children of recent immigrants, if not immigrants themselves, and you could not tell this at all by attire, even though they could wear any cultural clothing that fell within the dress code. The young Indian women wear tight clothing that pushes the dress code just like any other teenage girls.

"These people tend not to assimilate well in JC either. Let's ban them"

1. Where did I say their choice of attire should be banned idiot?

2. And just why pray tell wouldn't people in Western professional attire such as that not be able to assimilate here?!?!

It has to do with the discomfort of some "native americans" with JC's melting pot. The OP is unable to make the distinction between South Asians who generally assimilate in 1 generation, and the cultures that have devoted themselves to "apartness". Little India is hardly different from the Jewish Lower East Side and Little Italy of a century ago, except that the latter wore European clothing.
