In Response To: THERE WAS NO ARYAN INVASION (jahchild)
by gerardo vildostegui.
i found this interesting:
"But Omvedt, following the Dalit leader Dr. Ambedkar, rejects this racial theory of caste:
"In fact, racism in India has been as much a lie as elsewhere; the millennia of mixing of linguistic-ethnic groups, Aryan, Dravidian, Sino-Tibetan, Austro-Asiatic, has resulted in little clear distinction between caste categories. Ambedkar himself was categoric in rejecting the gAryan theoryh or the racial theory of caste. Caste was not a racial division but a division of races, he said (still using the category); Punjabi Brahmans and Punjabi Untouchables were ethnically the same, and Tamil Brahmans and Tamil Untouchables were not racially different" "
interesting because Dr. Ambedkar wasnt very dark, and is considered basically the equivalent of Marcus Garvey of India's Dalits. (Rightfully so, he was a man of great vision, character and courage)
