At my University there are lots of student postings with Roomate Wanted on them. With many, I see the gender specified which I can understand somewhat (although I’ve never been too choosy with this) as regards to one’s comfort level. What baffles me, however, are the ones that specify ethnicity as well! The only ones I see for this are from Indians. So the posting will read either male or famale Indian wanted.
Now I know this is not true 100% of the time. I myself lived with a couple of girls from Tamil (South Indian) for a while.
This attitude baffles me though. Part of me wants to cross out the word Indian and write on it “Whites only” just for kicks (joke)…
Also, I realize that other cultures have a tendency to “stick together”. Probably most. I’m just surprised that some are that *open * about it. Any thoughts?
