I want to call to your attention the emergence of Indians on major popular television programs. There is an Indian central character on Big Bang Theory, on Rules of Engagement and
The Good Wife. All top programs.
Indians have the great advantage that they are dark skinned assumed to speak the King’s English and there is a stereotype that Indians are smart.
This makes an Indian character a perfect person for a dramatic role. Anyone who is smart or accommodating in American stereotypes cannot have strength of character. An Indian can be an exception to this because they are essentially Americans in foreign guise.
I am fascinated to see the emergence of this character and look forward to understanding what it is that we want to add to our character array.
