You guys seem to be jumping on the "oh no. This might be racist" wagon. Many "brown" people actually do refer to themselves as brown. Brown refers to people from India, Pakistan, and basically most of South Asia and the Mid-East. Just the way someone who is white, Causasian, or Scottish will refer to themselves as white. It's acting like those white people who are afraid to say black so they say "African American" or something. Anyway, I think there is a decent brown population on CR. It's a guess but I don't think certain regional movie like "Bollywood" films are in CR though. Maybe it's because there isn't enough of a demand on CR or because the styles of media are a bit different.


LMAO! I have to say, the first part I believe in, but "It's a guess but I don't think certain regional movie like "Bollywood" films are in CR though." is unfortunately way off the mark. Remember, "brown" people don't all like bollywood Heck, quite alot of them hate how pathetic it is...


::shrug:: I had no idea it was so unpopular amongst brown people. They had an Indian film thread with people talking about it and some Indian girl on CR told me that Indian films were the biggest in the world. (Although I'm pretty sure that the US film industry is bigger; not in terms of ticket sales or # of movies made) I assumed some people would or have asked for South Asian movies (especially Bollywood). I guess not.


hehe, it's np. I'm not trying to dig at you, i just felt it would be nice to say that not all "brown" people like it.....even though some are nuts about it. Honestly, watch one of them and you will really see how crap (pardon my language) it really is.


ok it seems that I was not clear enough abt this thread=(

by brown I mean Indians, Pakistanis, Sri Lankans, Afghanis. Nepalis, Bangladesh and Maldives. hopefully I did not miss a certain nationality

now I live in Canada and we South east Asians call ourselves brown here. I am NOT being racist. I was merely curious abt whether there were other brown ppl like me who enjoy asian music and dont think its retarded. a lotta browns sadly stick to listening to Bollywood and rap/R&B and refuse to open up to anything else=(

and I disagree with you. Shootout at Lokhandwala and Black were really good films. Movies made by Karan Johar and Yash Chopra have excellent performances. so yes there are many pathetic movies but there are also really good Hindi films as well.

and yes the Bollywood industry is making more money right now than Hollywood.

Well, to clarify a bit. I think the original poster meant Indians/Nepalese/Pakistanis/Maldivites/Sri Lankan people. If you don't get it, SOUTH ASIAN people. Personally, Middle Eastern is different from South Asians in many ways including skin colour. South Asians are typically a lot darker than Middle Easterners, especially Indians and Sri Lankans. Middle Easterners tend to be wayyyy lighter and look even white in some (most for the countries near eastern europe).

With that being said. Brown can extend to people of SE Asia too. I'm Indian, but I have cousins of Malaysian and Singaporean descent, and they consider themselves brown too so... yeah. Under normal circumstances, we don't really call eachother brown. We usually like the term "South Asian" better.

Most likely, there are.

Feel free to recreate the thread, but be clearer about it, next time.
