Mindy Kaling’s Brother Donned Blackface for 2 years in Twisted, Racist “Experiment”

Did y’all know Mindy Kaling had a brother?

Yeah, neither did I. Turns out that the star of the hit comedy The Mindy Project has an older brother named Vijay. A quick Google search of his name reveals little: on the internet, he exists entirely in the form of short quotes (one to Dartmouth Alumni Magazine, the other to Parade, another to the New York Times) about how awesome his sister is. He is also listed as a surviving child in his mother’s obituary. On a fansite for The Office, Vijay trawled for threads about his sister and shamelessly name-dropped that he was related to her (Update: link no longer active). On Twitter, he has a scant 230 followers (at the time of this publication) despite having been on the microblogging site for four years as a self-described “anti-affirmative action hacktivist” (#tcot?). In his Twitter bio, he tells us that the most pertinent detail about his life is that he’s related to Mindy Kaling.

Yet, Chokalingam is making news today in super-Rightwing news media outlets: in early March, Chokalingam released details of a book pitch documenting his efforts to gain admission into medical school by donning Blackface fifteen years ago.

Yes, you read that right: Mindy Kaling’s brother says he wore Blackface for more than two years while applying to and attending medical school.

What. The. Fuck.

Let's put it this way: I now have an "Adam Carolla is racist" file photo.
Let’s put it this way: I have an “Adam Carolla is racist” file photo.

I don’t even…

Look, no one is ever going to mistake Adam Carolla with someone who has taste, tact, or wit.

These days, the washed up former host of The Man Show  seems hellbent on staying relevant by saying as many offensive and inane things as he possibly can, and if the last few years are any indication, he’s failing: recently, he’s appeared on Dancing With The Stars and Celebrity Apprentice, and that’s the highlight of his resume.

Currently, he hosts Catch a Contractor, the exceptionally boring play off of To Catch a Predator where the sexual innuendo and moral outrage is inexplicably replaced with bad home improvement contractors.

So, to say I don’t really give a fuck about Adam Carolla would be something of an understatement. It’s clear that very few people in the world really give a fuck about Adam Carolla.

That being said, I really wish this guy would stop making fun of minorities in his desperate efforts to get attention.
