Would you consider South Indians and Sri Lankans as blacks?

Or are they still "browns" even though their skin is virtually black.

  • They are darker skinned but they wouldn't be considered black people, nor do I thing they'd want to be. They still are what they are regardless of the tone of their skin.

  • Yes they're Dravidians the worse Indians. North Indians are much better.

  • Usually in the US, a small amount of African is considered black. Example Klay Thompson

    Anything outside of Africa isn't general considered black here but I think a dark skinned Indian or Sri Lankan being called black makes sense.

      I meant they just have to have a small amount of African. Klay isn't considered white here generally even though he's more European than African ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      Besides his afro and slightly round forehead, he's hardly got any African features

  • (I'm not trying to be racist in the following opinion) I'm South Indian and I would say I am brown. Mainly because I have seen people that are a lot darker than me and also a lot darker than my Sri Lankan friends. Plus if you look at the difference between an African-American person or even an African person, South Indian and Sri Lankan people will be lighter, maybe only by a little bit, but still lighter.

      North Indians typically call South Indians as "black", like they're a completely different race.

      @Curlybeauty17 fair enough I see your point. That's actually true when you think about it. My opinion changed hahah thanks for shedding light (y)

      No problem man.

  • You can tell by if they have that very short extra curly hair.
    I don't even know what one looks like.

  • They're not negroid, which is who we typically associate with the word 'black.'
