What is it like being black in India? BBC News

What is it like being black in India?
That’s what BBC Pop Up wanted to find out after Benjamin Pratt, a student from Sierra Leone now living in India, told us that many African immigrants are victims of racism and prejudice.
BBC journalists Christian Parkinson and Vikas Pandey joined Benjamin on the streets of Delhi to find out more but ended up in a small village in the western state of Gujarat. There they discovered a surprising and little-known culture alive and well.
Follow what BBC Pop Up is up to in India and find out how to get involved at bbc.com/popup.

Lyrics:

love forsaken
risk worth taking
spearmint flavours all my pallet shutters
i’m a member of shattered allusions & am i needless to say

but love is big & every land every nation seeks its friends in France & Italy & all across the 7 seas
& Goddam guns & guts & history & bitter love still put a put a hole in me

bite my head off still my World will always be a little risk worth taking
bite my hand off still my World will always be another risk worth taking

gotta step out a limb swallow my pride surrender & not give myself away
little measures all the time
become part of you nothing new still have full for absolutions in my day there’s no solutions

& love is big & every land every nation seeks its friends in France & Italy & all across the 7 seas
& Goddam guns & guts & history & bitter love still put a put a hole in me

bite my head off still my World will always be a little risk worth taking
bite my hand off still my World will always be another risk worth taking
