You do realize that nobody is going to reply to your posts about yourself, right?

Damn. And damn. If y'all start handing out awards, may I suggest a category for the most overt display of offensive stereotypical thinking masked none-too-well behind a smarmy come-on?

I'm just sayin'...

Assuming this isn't the guy, himself, what kind of fool would want to go out with a woman who identified him as "not like the other Indians"? You would have to hate yourself and your culture an awful lot, not to mention be fairly desperate.

And here, we thought it was 2007...

This is brilliant - and also an excellent way to use CraigsList to create a pyramid scheme. A really sexy pyramid scheme.

P.S. Regarding Maroon Memoir's comment: For realz. I don't know which is worse-- the idea that a series of women actually wrote these weirdly racist flirations or the idea that an actual Indian dude wrote this about himself.
