High-profile incidents like Rajat Gupta. Dharun Ravi are exposing an ugly side of Indian American community. Or, is it American racism and jealousy against the most successful ethnic immigrant community in America?

Indian American communities have started complaining for a long time about severe form uncontrolled racism within American criminal justice system where law enforcement authorities, prosecutors, judges, and even criminal defense attorneys work together to pin down successful Indian American immigrants.

On the other hand, Indian news media like The Economic Times claims corporate greed, insider trading, cyber bullying, fraudulent scams, forced servitude and workforce exploitation are some of the largest complaints against Indian American communities. It may seem like election-year subjects up for debate, but a plethora of recent trials, convictions and charges involving Indian Americans, is turning up an ugly side of the community, which may tarnish the till-now impeccable credentials of a group known for being rich, highly educated, and family-oriented, claims The Economic Times from Indian subcontinent.

Many Indian Americans have complained for a long time that they face double standards in America specially when the American law enforcement authorities hear complaints from mainstream Americans. Like any other country ''who knows who'' is a big factor in getting preferential treatment from the Police departments. The problem in America lies with the fact that local law enforcement have tremendous power compared to other countries. That makes it easy for mainstream Americans to influence American cops, prosecutors, and judges against immigrants. The Federal Government has laws that put some check and balance against prejudicial misconducts by American police, prosecutors and judges. But these laws are seldom applied to fullest extent and more importantly immigrants seldom know about it.
