Suburban racism

From 'The Age' How subarban racism destroyed a love of the game "Srinand Yalamanchili's first memory of racism coincides with his first memory of football, playing kick-to-kick in the school yard. He was in prep, and another boy told him he wasn't allowed to play because he wasn't white. He remembers it as a bewildering experience."
I hope that this kind of experiences may make Indians more aware the problems of dalits back home. But it does not seem to be usual. Recently, there are reports of APSWREI schools doing well in A.P. I wonder whether this is due to some isolation from the daily grind of descrimination.
