As an ABCD myself, I feel like a lot of ABCDs tend to be generally pretty cold and unfriendly, especially to other desis. They tend to hang out in their own cliques that share their same disdain for desi culture and look down on their own kind. Yet at the same time they preach about progressivism to no end. Generally I’ve found recent migrants to be far more warm and welcoming. Anyone else feels that this is the case? Again, not generalizing here as I’m an ABCD myself.
