Racism and Making America Great Again

Yesterday, an Indian man was killed (and two injured) after this american lad shot him dead at a bar at Kansas (U.S.). This was not some regular attack but purely was a racist one, where this killer yelled “get out of my country” before shooting the victim. It really shook the people back at home in India. This is how India’s foreign minister responded –

I don’t know if the newly elected POTUS should be blamed for all the recent racist attacks or this racism was always there, but Trump surely has never criticized any single racist attack! Being the president of a country which has a rich heritage of embracing people from all over the world , a responsible behaviour is always expected.

I’m really sorry for the man who attacked the victim, had he known the contribution of India in the US economy, he would never have done this. He and people like him should be aware of  the following facts before yelling again!

As many as 12% scientists and 38% doctors in the US are Indians, and in NASA, 36% or almost 4 out of 10 scientists are Indians. 
If that’s not proof enough of Indian scientific and corporate prowess, digest this: 34% employees at Microsoft, 28% at IBM, 17% at Intel and 13% at Xerox are Indians.

With a whopping 29.4 per cent increase, a record high of 132,888 Indian students studying in the US in 2015/16 academic year contributed $3.6 billion to the US economy, (according to a new report).
Imagine a US with no Indians and u ll know! and why only Indians , but everybody else too, who come from all over the world and contribute to the progress of the states, imagine the US without  them and you ll have nothing but regret!

America has made this progress only because of its heritage and power of adaptability and how it has the opportunity for everyone irrespective of color, gender, and nationality. America has always been welcoming and has embraced people from all over the places. No one should forget that the power of America doesn’t lies in its nukes but in its unity! Don’t let anybody ruin that.
