Everyday casteism ( a thread ) #DalitWomenRise
1. You’re casteist if you say, “You don’t look like a Dalit”.

2. You are casteist if you believe calling a savarna “a savarna” is casteism.

3. You are casteist if you say, “We LET the Dalits speak".
4. You are casteist if, you say Hindu festivals have nothing to do with ‘caste’. "It’s Indian culture & I have a ‘choice’ to celebrate them and not politicize everything like you do."

5. You’re casteist if you say, ‘Why you bring caste angle in everything’.
