Mindy Kaling's new show "The Mindy Project" represents something great for Indian-Americans, according to comedian and "Totally Biased" writer Hari Kondabolu. Finally, Indian-Americans are represented so widely in mainstream pop culture that he can talk crap about other Indian-Americans without holding back.
"There's now enough Indian people that I don't have to like you just because you're Indian. Because growing up, I had no choice but to like this," Hari said, pointing to a picture of Apu from "The Simpsons." "If I saw Hank Azaria doing that voice at a party, I would kick the shit out of him."
Now Hari is allowed to say what he really thinks about prominent Indian-Americans like Bobby Jindal ("against abortion and gay marriage, so you can go to hell") Dinesh D'Souza ("you made the new anti-Obama movie, so I wish you didn't exist"), the dudes in the Metro PCS commercials and Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
Watch the web-only clip from "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell," which recently got picked up for another 7-episode cycle on FX, above.
