Untwist your panties. The Indian grandmas will walk in their colorful pajamas, their IT-employed kids speak with Indian accents but dress Western, and their kids are 100% American. That's how it has worked for 200 years. I don't understand your problem.

I found this interesting. Seems like these sari wearing moms are bringing their kids up to be main stream Americans. Sorry Polonius, but what one wears is irrelevant.

And what is your "native garb"? I'd like to see you in one, maybe it's untreated animal skins "Couture Neanderthal"?

That's cute. But see even you don't have one. If you were true blue to this ethnic standout image you would be already walking around town in your native garb.

Yeah, this is a silly thread. And as someone who happens to love the sight of a lovely sari-clad woman like the one below...I feel badly for your lack of ability to appreciate beauty.

How do all of you post this much on JCList but still can't recognize an obvious troll?? You're trying to reason with someone whose entire purpose of posting is to have everyone lose their shit over a deliberately controversial and ignorant statement. You've given them the response they've been wanting this entire time and more- so...way to fall for it!

Pimpette sighting? Who died & left you Versace? You talk about others being against assimilation & then make this statement? Ugh.

Keep trying to hide who & what you are; it doesn?t matter we all know. You are such a xenophobic dullard & you past posts prove it. Some are lame attempts at levity. Then when your back is against the wall, you try to turn the post around that the other person is wrong & you are the aggrieved party.

Your calling on the webmaster was absolutely hysterical. It?s akin to raising your hand in school & saying ?Oh teacher, oh teacher, it was Johnny who has the peashooter & spitballs?.

Oh yeah & wasn?t it you who referred to Heights people as savages on a local radio show a few years back?

Pajamas as street clothes running rampant and you choose saris as your big fashion don't? Oh, but the issue is assimilation. Gotcha. Melting pot be damned. Ban those kilt wearing, bagpipe playing firemen from parades and funerals. No imported meats at Italian delis either. Turkey and american on my kaiser roll, no wait, wonder bread. Pass me some freedom fries. I'll have a beer while I wait. Shoooot, beer's not american either? Make it meth then.

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.


Your sheet needs ironing heights. You must be a regular riot at those monthly captains meetings you want everyone to go to. (For those who don/t know, the captain in the heights is one of those people, hispanic)

Webmaster please delete this response it is inappropriate and a slap towards the North District police captain.


No you xenophobic, racist it is a slap in your face for your consistent view. The webmaster would delete you but yuor short sighted postings are so patheticfally funny that you are allowed to stay.

The Indian outfits referenced are not 3rd world at all, they are actually very stylish and upper class for India.

In a meting pot one flavor does not try to emulate the other. In a meting pot two (or more) flavors make a new one.

The OP smfh @ your dumb a^^ Western culture has been inspired by Indian women fashions forever. The traditional garb has been copied and ripped off by western designers for years...

Its been on the runways for some time now, but I am guessing you knew that... The very thing you are blabbing about western women are excited about.

Yes by all means give up a garment that is:

modest

flattering to all body types - one probably never hears - does this sari make my ass look fat in Hindi

made of natural fibers - silk or cotton

in addition, women who wear a sari are probably the only people not wearing any clothes made in China, this country's biggest military and economic enemy. Hear, hear, let's cheer these inadvertent patriots.

I am also a big fan of the Shalwar Kameez for the same reasons.

Who cares?

They can wear whatever clothes they want, cook and eat whatever food they want, whatever. I don't see why it matters at all.

Not really, no.

Our nation is based on freedom, not massive social pressure to assimilate. It certainly isn't required for every single person in the US to eschew their original customs.

Immigrants to the US have done this for decades. The older generations tend not to assimilate, the younger generation acculturates and/or assimilates to a degree.

What on Earth are you talking about?

Immigrants have been a part of JC for decades. The old guard Polish, Irish, Italians, Puerto Ricans, Filipinos etc did not give up their culture just because they moved to America. Indians are doing the same thing.

Little India has also been around for a long time, at least a decade AFAIK. Nothing new there.

Meanwhile, Downtown JC is certainly not looking like the 3rd world (an archaic phrase btw). If anything, the wave of affluence is wiping out the last vestiges of many immigrant communities.

Just to clarify some things:

1. I am certainly not proposing forbidding Indian women from wearing their traditional garb. This is America and obviously anyone can just about wear whatever they want!

2. Again I simply ask this: Would it NOT behoove them greatly to make an attempt to ingratiate themselves to the larger community at hand, to which they now reside in by simply just making a minimal effort to adapt to Western style? Is it NOT a fact that one the things that is a tremendous and constant source of pride in our country is that we're a self described "melting pot" where foreigners who now live here make every effort to adopt to our culture i.e. learning our language/dressing in a western manner etc

3. Sorry but their traditional Indian attire reminds me of scenes from the streets in a 3rd world country and who wants to be reminded of that on a daily basis HERE?!?! NOT me!!!

4. Imho in their donning the garb worn by 3rd world dwellers, that this unwillingness to assimilate directly contributes to the 3rd worldization of our community. (which I sincerely can't fathom how anyone would want or defend!!!)

5. I purposely omitted from my critique those who are proscribed by their religion to wear whatever it is they have to wear (devout female Muslims/Hasidic Jews/followers of Warren Jeb etc) tho I am certainly no fan of how they present themselves in public and find how their look to be highly disturbing and contributory to the 3rd worldization of America as well.

6. I do realize not all of India is 3rd world, but by and large the vast majority of that country is. (largely due to their massive population problem and caste system which condemns a sizable % of their population to virtually living in the gutters )

7. I lOVE their food and am OK with the wearing of their traditional garb in their restaurants :)
