Ironically, I wasn’t the only one who thought the Time Magazine article I posted about yesterday was insulting and racist towards the South Asian population…

Here is what’s going on in the online community in reaction to the article:

SAALT (South Asian Americans Leading Together) posted this:

Feministing.com had even more to say about the article.

The Huffington Post has a blip from the Executive Director of SAALT, Deepa Iyer.

7/2 Edit: Wall Street Journal’s India Real Time blogged about it as well:

And last but not least.. wowwww… even Joel Stein himself commented on it:

Didn’t meant to insult Indians with my column this week. Also stupidly assumed their emails would follow that Gandhi non-violence thing”
