Yeah, I'm not getting where the OP is coming from.

Excluding the cast of Outsourced, there are probably only a handful of Indians on American TV. While their visibility in TV shows has improved greatly in the last decade or so along with all other non-Whites, American TV pretty much goes this way in terms of the types of ethnicities you see on shows:

White Americans


{big gap}

African Americans (boosted by networks such as BET and TV One)
Latin Americans (boosted by networks such as Univision and Telemundo)

{big gap}

Every other ethnicity...and usually a quota of one per show. If you are lucky.

Don't get me started on how mixed race individuals hardly get any play on TV.
