There was more xenophobia in the ethnic minorities. White racism was quite a taboo. The Indian girls would adopt white names. Many wanted to be April, the reporter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Anyways, they would try to keep up they pretense that they were white. For example, Bina Patel became Sabrina Fartimah (I tell no lies). Then there were the self-titled fights of 'Indians' vs. 'Pakis', during which white friends were frantically recruited to be honorary Indians or Pakis. Wars went on. The teacher was much alarmed, when, in registraion, James Pale shouted out "Yes miss. Glory to the Pakis.". The teacher questioned this, and he said "Are you blind miss? I'm a Paki." He got detention.
