Mindy Kaling’s frat boy brother, Vijay Chokal-Ingam, pretended to be black in order to get into med-school. He shaved his head, trimmed his eyelashes, changed his name to Jojo, and refused to ever watch hockey. Vijay claims to have an ethical beef with the affirmative action programs present in school admissions since it promotes black applicants over other ethnic minorities although it’s highly possible he’s just a dumb liar as evidenced by the fact he dropped out of school after two years:
“When you are faced with racism, you have the choice to accept it or to defy those who discriminate against you. At the age of 22, I made the decision [to] defy those who would discriminate against me, lie and oppose affirmative action racism.”
The history of racism against the Indian American community seems to be relegated to the Apu character from The Simpsons. If the med schooladmissions boards are so racist why does every doctor I’ve ever had sounds like a Microsoft Customer Care rep and have a live elephant in the waiting room? Vijay claims to have great respect for the black civil rights activists who’d like to curb stomp him. He even did a 180 and claimed to have learned something about the black struggle from being the pudgiest shortest dicked black guy on record:
“Not everything worked out as planned. Cops harassed me. Store clerks accused me of shoplifting. Women were either scared of me or couldn’t keep their hands off me.”
Given you’re kind of a scumbag you were probably shoplifting and groping women. That’s why people were concerned. After dropping out of med school Vijay went on to attend business school at UCLA with his sub par grades. When will his people get a fair shake?
