‘Pakistanis pose as Indians after NY bomb scare’

That’s the head.

“A lot of Pakistanis can’t get jobs after 9/11 and now it’s even worse,” said Asghar Choudhri, an accountant and chairman of Brooklyn’s Pakistani American Merchant Association. “They are now pretending they are Indian so they can get a job.”

But basically the article is about backlash in racism affecting the community. Not about posing as Indians. But hey, we remember “I am Chinese.”  Not that it makes any difference to the majority.

  1. I don’t like the term “backlash”. It makes it sound like Pakistanis as a whole did something and then are getting something “back” for what “they” did.
