India, Africa, and Their Colonial Past

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 25, 2007

Diepiriye writes about his trip to Delhi and about the relationship between Indians and Blacks in his Myspace blog:

Just like in most of the colonial world, the whims and desires of the colonial masters determined which Indians would encounter which Africans- and this has unfortunately led to a great deal of conflict and mistrust amidst a people who ultimately must engage one another, even if only for commerce. Nonetheless, there is a lot of mutuality shown by the way that both African and Indian Diasporas lend and borrow cultural traditions, or in many cases, develop whole new cultural traditions.
