Over the weekend, Nikki Haley slammed Joe Biden’s “you ain’t black” remarks:
I have struggled with Biden’s recent remarks. They were gut wrenchingly condescending. Regardless of color, gender, or class, to label any individual with what he or she is expected to think, believe, and vote is demeaning and disrespectful. Not to mention arrogant and entitled. https://t.co/L1sJ36RNfz

Well, for what it’s worth, New York Times contributing op-ed writer and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali disagrees with Haley’s take.
And just to show you how much he disagrees with her, he’s making her the target of his own racist take:
Desi kids never let other Desi kids grow up to be Nikki Haley. https://t.co/FsHRNAOmnH

By “Desi,” Ali means members of the Indian subcontinent diaspora. So, basically, he’s saying that Nikki Haley’s not a real Indian-American woman because she’s got the wrong politics.
In other words, “You ain’t Desi.”

Well, for starters, he’s a racist.
Way to be racist

This is incredibly racist of you.

It’s what we’ve come to expect from a bigot like Ali.
Do you oppose dehumanizing people by limiting their intellectual autonomy by their race, sex, sexuality, etc?
Why would you respond to a person championing individuality and respecting the person, rather than only seeing the minority status, with such hostile mockery? https://t.co/mWNMMMQMmJ

Given @NikkiHaley awesome professional career & accomplishments, let's hope all kids strive to give back to our country at a similar level.
