There was a missed opportunity to capture data across all religions and a Dalit scholar would have helped them identify this immediately. AAPI discrimination does include caste discrimination and we need to not overlook the violence caste oppressed Americans are facing today.

While I disagree with some of their methodology it is clear that we need more data on caste in the US and that any future work that @taaforg conducts on discrimination in South Asian or Indian American communities needs to include #Dalit and caste oppressed scholars.

Thread: This new survey set confirms what @EqualityLabs has said in our #CasteintheUnitedStates report. Some of the findings of note are that roughly half of all Hindu Indian Americans identify with a caste group. https://t.co/97FWW1VjO8

Quoted @blueprintnewsSA

"After centuries of ongoing casteism, we see how caste power dynamics are reenacted in art through the savarna gaze, and how it views marginalized experience as something to be stolen, profited off of, and discarded when no longer useful." https://t.co/dzblAUaV80

"Many Dalits on social media use aliases and cannot afford to reveal their names because of the threat and abuse that would follow, and the glaring possibility of harm in real life. They 've mostly picked assertive names for their handles" @AmbedkarCaravan https://t.co/hOBwUSKnuo

Both #Facebook and @twitterindia must acknowledge it is not business as usual anymore in the Indian market and the time to openly acknowledge the danger of operating in a market that is in the middle of a genocidal process is crucial. Their staff and users are in danger.

Quoted @ANI

A team of Delhi Police Special cell is carrying out a search at the Twitter India office in Delhi. Details awaited.

This terrifying raid on @TwitterIndia offices by the @DelhiPolice is a tipping point in the further erosion of democratic norms in India. This comes a day before the draconian new social media rules come into play& a day after Twitter marked a post as social media manipulation. https://t.co/C70RJNsaTp

A compelling thread about the #Castepolitics of the artistic tradition of #templecarving. It shares the Sompura Brahmins domination in the industry & how untouchability divides of who is an artist & who is a craftsman. #Justice4TempleStoneWorkers #jaibhim https://t.co/lNyelr6vbG
