I love the part that basically says, 1960s America granted Civil Rights partly to lure more Indians in order to fight the Soviets.  Ergo, Tolerance won the Cold War.

Did I miss something? Is this true at all?  Didn't we fight the Nazis the catch the rocket Nazis to fight the 'Now We Have Nukes' Soviets who capurted anyone who tripped over the Iron Curtain to fight Capitalism which defends market exploitation, cheese burgers and freedom fries? Why would we need a defense policy (not civil rights) to 'lure' rocket Indians then?

/guess we ran out of rocket Nazis.  Maybe that's what he's saying...
//I'm good now.

I tried to look up the reason for America changing its immigration policy in '65, because the article writer attributed a really radical change in US policy due to wanting to attract Indian engineers and doctors in specific, which sounds odd to me.  There are certainly a lot of other countries who had plenty of technicians/medical folks at the time who wanted to immigrate to the US and plenty of other reasons to change that policy.There is little written on the net (even Wiki is vague on the reasons) that I saw on the actual reasons for the change in policy as its impact on America is almost as radical as the Civil Rights Act of '64. Immigration from non-western countries changed America a lot.  Certainly, my parents and I wouldn't be here but for that bill.  We came in the 70's.

Right? I do clearly see advantages of a more overall open door immigration policy to keep up with the Soviets at the time. Though, like you stated, how the author states Civil Rights in the US as a an act purposely for Indians to assist in the cold war, is bittttttt much. Not Jim Crow, not the Klan?  What was that again about ignorance?

I can't imagine them even being a red dot on the radar back in 65

"They're called Bungs (pronounce booung) because that's the sound your car makes when you hit 'em."

Was told to me by residents - didn't seem much worse than say, any other rural ill-educated area.
-1 would not buy from again.

OTOH, everywhere has it in one form or another.  Even Belgians look down on someone.
"Everybody's gotta hate somebody son"
It gives society something to work on and talk about I suppose.

pretty sad all the same.
