“disinfecting” immigrants in order to make them clean and less visible."?

Hari is the child of an immigrant himself. That's a ridiculous interpretation of his view.


What is ridiculous is giving somebody the benefit of sincerity and of rightness because of his origins? Are all Blacks right on race because they are blacks? Are all Muslims right on Islam? Your argument is based on origins and makes my point, which is that where you come from, what your origins are doesn't say anything about the value of your opinions and the wrongness of your convictions. It isn't because Hari is a chid of an immigrant that he is right or wrong, it is because he has a limited view of multiculturalism. Thank God (for you) that favorable biases and presumptions don't lead to ridicule or do they?
