    they wont be racists against you because you are black but because you will be a NRI (non resisdent indian). All NRI's are treated this way in india, nothing can be done, its just the way things go....

    there are a lot of blacks in bangalore from africa and all. i feel the racism to blacks may be higher in some parts of america possibly than in blore. i am indian but am really fair and was mistaken for white or iranian or other. however i did fine. u may get ripped off when bargaining perhaps.

    however i would worry more about the discrimination in america with indian degrees. read my other posts on this. i would stay in america if i were u. usually only us indians r dumb enough to go to india for med school. i didnt know we had company.

    if you are looking for a black experience perhaps look into the carribean.

    I agree with Mr Doc. I didn't see much in the way of racism towards a group like blacks (well, I did, but the group was an Indian ethnic group), its mostly just the way they treat non indians; not very tolerant of other cultures.
