Racism removed from its cultural context is the best kind of racism.

Extra stars for the butterfly at the end.

This was in the 1990's.

The Indians can be some of the most horrible racists around. But, to be fair, this is a nursery rhyme from Britain that India probably adopted due to colonial occupation. So, this one probably winds up on whitey again.

It's also the title of an Agatha Christie novel.

Yes it's a traditional English song. We have eeny meeny myny mo, catch a nigger by its toe, just changed it up a little to make it more acceptable. I find it hard to believe that through all the post-Colonial dialog that educated Indians are immersed in, they would not know that nigger was an offensive term in the English language.

There's no shortage of racism toward the lower, browner castes in India, so I'm kind of reserved about giving this woman a complete pass.

Am I missing something? Like is this kind thing acceptable in India?

This isn't as bad as stuff I've seen in 80s Hong Kong comedies. At least there's no black face and rape jokes.

I have had to explain to people from India why they should not refer to black people in America as "niggers." They didn't expect there could be a really strong reaction to such a common word.

FYI, "Ten Little Niggers" is the original title of the nursery rhyme, and the novel by Agatha Christie.

Ironically, it's title was changed to "Ten Little Indians" (would that have been more or less appropriate being sung by an Indian lady?) later down the line, and then to "And Then There Were None".

That being said, is it really racism if you don't know you're doing it?

Yes. Yes that is still racism. So deeply ingrained it can't even be acknowledged.
