I smell Indian BO

Someone needs to tell them that people in the United States shower and use deodorant.

* * *

Most of the ones here don’t smell, but today there’s one stinker.

  4. It seems like a lot of these guys forego lunching out and where bring their own curry dishes from home to microwave at work.

    You have a low status job, simply because your co-workers are non-prole White.

    • * not SWPLs.

    • Indians are cheap, really cheap. They don’t eat out unless it’s a Chinese AYCE buffet. Then they gorge them selves till they can’t move.


      June 7, 2017 at 9:02 PM

      • From a HBD perspective, I find Indians to be weak physically and inefficient in performance measures. Gulf Arabs are stronger and perform better at hands on tasks.


        June 8, 2017 at 12:04 PM

      • East Indians perform poorly if you compare them to other brown skinned groups. Arabs and Mestizo Hispanics perform better than East Indians in many tasks. I would never hire an East Indian for anything.


        June 8, 2017 at 12:07 PM

      • Good luck trying to staff an entire IT department with Hispanics.

      • We don’t need Indians for IT. And Hispanics and Arabs perform better than Indians in non-IT tasks.


        June 8, 2017 at 12:30 PM

      • That might be true of Hispanics, but I don’t think it’s true of Arabs. Arabs are similar in strength and physique to Indians, and Arabs are actually notorious for being bad and lazy workers. That’s why the Arab states import their labor from abroad including much from India.


        June 9, 2017 at 10:32 AM

      • We know that Arabs are crappy soldiers compared to Jews.

    • JS. If u think Lion’s 90$/hr white collar job is low status, I do not even want to know what u think of an actual low class blue collar job. *shudder*


      June 8, 2017 at 8:32 AM

      • Working with Indians is not high status, so it must be low status.


        June 8, 2017 at 11:54 AM

      • JS. You avoiding the question. If white collar work is low status prole job, what do u really think of people doing blue collar ( low class) job?

  5. lmao you’re going to get yourself fired Lion.


    June 7, 2017 at 12:51 PM

  6. I hate when Indian co-workers eat their hardcore Indian meals in the office. No consideration for others. But if i were to complain, I guess I’d be a racist? Why cant they just eat normal food?

    • I understand criticism where it’s due such as bad hygene or body odor. But saying other people should eat stuff that’s acceptable to you (normal food??? Lol) is where u lose your argument.


      June 7, 2017 at 4:08 PM

      • That’s where you’re wrong, my fecal colored friend. You can eat what you want at home… and at the office within reason. But you don’ have a right to assault other people’s senses whether it’s olfactory or auditory. Most places have ordinances against both noise and noxious odors. I’m not claiming your dinner rises to the level of a misdemeanor. But if you habitually brought stinky food to the office then I suspect that you’d eventually be told to cut it.


        June 7, 2017 at 7:39 PM

      • What would you rather smell? A plate of microwaved wheat germ curry? Or a garden salad? A salad…you know? Normal food.

        June 7, 2017 at 8:47 PM

      • I had to go to Bentonville to call on a customer and the hotels there are terrible. The only place to stay was a Residence Inn. Of course I check in and immediately notice an Untouchable across the hall stinking the whole place up cooking curry in a hotel. No respect.


        June 7, 2017 at 8:56 PM

    • “Why cant they just eat normal food?”

      Because only white culture, and Japs, admires food from other cultures.


      June 7, 2017 at 4:14 PM

    • Indian food is incredibly over powering. The smell makes me sick. It gets into everything–your hair, your clothes. Most work places forbid people from wearing perfume because it bothers a lot of people. But you can cook something that makes people sick.

      I wonder in Indians get their taste buds burned off in childhood from the spices, and have to make the smell and taste overpowering or they can’t taste anything.

      It seems that people from hot climates eat strong spices.


      June 7, 2017 at 6:04 PM

      • The taste bud thing is probably right.


        June 8, 2017 at 1:08 AM

      • It is to hide the odor of spoiled food.

  7. The chemicals in deodorant stained my t-shirts and and caused boils. Not often but even an occasional boil sucked. So I quit using it. Haven’t had one since. On the other hand, I shower daily (in the morning because people sweat in their sleep) and clean up with a soapy cloth if I’m going somewhere after hours.

    People are so phobic about smelling that they’re afraid not to use deodorant. People need to understand that it’s not the sweat that smells but the bacteria. If you wash frequently it doesn’t smell because there’s not much bacteria. If someone has BO it’s because they don’t bathe. That’s true whether they use deodorant or not.

    That stinky injun probably needs soap more than deodorant.


    June 7, 2017 at 1:26 PM

    • If you have a stinky pit problem, other things you can do.

      1. Trim the hair. The bacteria live on the hair mainly. Less hair, less bacteria, less stank. Why do you think hairy hippie chicks smell so bad? (One of the side benefits of the shaved pubic hair phenomenon among women, for which we should all be grateful.) If you have a big problem, shave all the hair. It’ll grow back quickly anyway.

      2. Throw a splash of rubbing alcohol up in there every now and then. Kills those bacteria. Beyond a certain point, soaping won’t be sufficient. You need to bring in weapons of mass bacteria destruction.

      Also, you can use hippie deodorants like Tom’s of Maine that don’t have aluminum, which is what makes your t-shirts go yellow.


      June 7, 2017 at 4:18 PM

      • I find your lack of faith in a glorious, natural pelt disturbing


        June 7, 2017 at 5:41 PM

      • I wasn’t going to mention hair but yeah. I have clippers and every couple of weeks I go over everything. Started years ago by giving myself a buzz haircut. When I grew a goatee I used the clippers for that, too Then, when I stopped using deodorant, it just made sense to add pits. That does make a difference.

        I doubt I could get Tom’s of Maine here. But it couldn’t hurt to have something on hand. I’ll look for it next time in America. Thanks.


        June 7, 2017 at 6:52 PM

    • what chemicals?

      1. there used to be a distinction between deodorant and anti-perspirant. deodorant just kills the bacteria, anti-perspirant has inorganic hygroscopic compounds. these usually contain aluminum which has been associated with alzheimer’s, but the association isn’t very strong.

      2. sweat does have an odor without bacteria but it’s faint and not noxious.

      3. people do vary a great deal in how stinky they are even if they bathe the same amount and use deodorant. some people just stink. some people just don’t.

      silly little man

      June 7, 2017 at 4:58 PM

      • There still is the distinction. Any clothing stains are from aluminum in the antiperspirants. It’s that simple.

        You probably shouldn’t be using topical aluminum in any case. It’s not good for you.


        June 7, 2017 at 6:43 PM

      • A lot of body odor is from non-aerobic metabolism. If you eat plenty of carbohydrate you’ll tend not to smell very much. Go a day without eating or be in a stressful situation (public speech, hard workout) and the body ramps up various non-aerobic catabolic processes driven by stress hormones that produces smelly stuff. A lot of the “old people smell” is just that their metabolism doesn’t work so well anymore. Cancer patients tend to smell. If you consistently smell bad it’s cause for alarm, not better deodorant.


        June 7, 2017 at 6:52 PM

      • I don’t know what chemicals. Whatever clogs the pores causes boils.

        I think you’re right that different people smell differently. Apparently people study this kind of thing. And blacks smell the most. Orientals found negro odor to be particularly repulsive. Another favor is diet. Apparently orientals are lactose intolerant and don’t eat dairy. And they don’t like the smell of people who eat dairy. I guess we don’t notice it because we’re used to it.


        June 7, 2017 at 6:59 PM

    • Agree. Also, the dry earwax phenotype helps in my case and that of most of East Asia.

    • It should be Arjun, which is a South Asian name in the likes of Deepak and Veejay.


      June 7, 2017 at 6:50 PM

    • You can get away with not using deodorant in a colder climate in the winters, but not during summer and the warmer parts of the year. If you go out a bit or are active and sweat a bit, you will start stinking by the end of the day. There are non-aluminum deodorants, not just from Tom’s of Maine but more regular brands like Arm and Hammer. Those are usually sufficient although the aluminum ones work best and are good to have around for when you really need it.

      • i like the smell and taste of indian food, but it seems like every building lobby and hallway in queens smells like curry


        June 8, 2017 at 5:55 PM

  9. The Russians, Central Asians and Eastern Europeans in my Brooklyn neighborhood don’t seem to use deodorant either. The men, in particular, reek during the warmer months. But it’s mainly the old men and the super FOBs who barely speak English yet. Once they’ve been here long enough to get a grasp of the language and cultural mores, they seem to start conforming to American ideas of hygiene.


    June 7, 2017 at 1:57 PM

    • that’s the one point where the anglo-saxons really are superior to all other peoples. they like soap and change their underwear daily. not so in continental europe…if they even wear underwear that is. js will chime in here claiming bo is sophisticated.

      silly little man

      June 7, 2017 at 5:04 PM

      • I found Eastern Euro immigrants to be smelly, and not the French.


        June 7, 2017 at 6:45 PM

    • Eastern Euros and Russians tend to exhibit a distinctive BO different from that of South Asians.


      June 7, 2017 at 6:46 PM

  10. The thing about Indians is that when you get one that smells, he/she really, REALLY reeks. I’ve been in situations where it’s almost unbearable. It can actually make you gag.

    Once, a million years ago, we had two Indian guys in our shop named Partha. And the way we would indicate which Partha we wanted was that one of them was “stinky Partha” and the other just Partha. That was way back in the 1990s when you could do that without having SJWs show up protesting at your door.


    June 7, 2017 at 2:53 PM

  11. I can see Lion keeping this job for the next 20 years and what is now a mild annoyance of Injuns will grow into a full blown hatred of them.

    Just wait till you spend more time with them and tell me how you feel a year later.


    June 7, 2017 at 4:00 PM

    • Besides being incomprehensible at times, when they speak English with their Deepak Chopra accents, many South Asians are also cheap, which is quite the opposite of spendthrift Americans.


      June 7, 2017 at 6:43 PM

  12. Ouch.

  13. Look on the bright side. At least they aren’t defecating on the street outside your office like they do in India.

      June 7, 2017 at 9:53 PM

      • No discussion of how liable it is for a snake to be consumed in China?

    June 7, 2017 at 6:23 PM

    • Indian women can be hot, but I’ve yet to find one that didn’t also smell vaguely offensive, unfortunately. Even the ones without a strong BO are covering it up with equally strong perfume. Is this my body’s way of telling me they aren’t suitable mates?

      Panther of the Blogocube

      June 7, 2017 at 9:38 PM

      • Yes. They stink and they are unattractive.

    • I once dated a very attractive, feminine, Indian-Dutch woman. Silky white skin, green eyes, long dark brown hair, and an hour-glass figure. On more than a couple of occasions, friends and family members told me that she was the most beautiful woman they’d ever seen. She liked E. Rekshun.

  16. Worked with a lot of Indians, most of them smelled fine, the main problem with them was their close mindedness and conformism, they are just a boring lot.


    June 7, 2017 at 8:17 PM

    • First couple of generations are going to be a bit closed minded for sure. It changes after that usually.


      June 8, 2017 at 1:11 AM

  17. This is where it would be helpful to have some black co-workers, especially the women. If the curry smell became too prominent Lakeesha would go, “damn, why you got to eat that stinky shit?”

    • LOL! Damn, that was funny! The only question now is this: what would guidos say?


      June 8, 2017 at 10:50 PM

    • black co-workers, especially the women

      Some hateful blacks say that White people “smell like wet dog.” But I’ve found that black women and dreadlocked men infrequently wash their hair, and that tends to smell quite musty after a few days.

  19. slowly dawning on NeoGaf that Comey’s testimony is not going to lead to Trump being impeached. Most of them are still banking on Mueller to bring down Trump although they now seem to have accepted that Trump didn’t “collude” with Russia. Now they are saying that Trump will be brought down for obstruction of justice instead.

  20. My girlfriend had to work from her company’s Nashville office for a week recently, and she said there were signs in the bathrooms there telling people not to wash their feet in the sink. Apparently some Subcontinental IT folks were doing that.

  21. Don’t forget that they keep poop rags in their pockets. No toilet paper for them.


    June 8, 2017 at 2:54 AM

    • And this is a well kept secret so don’t quote me, but typically when no one is looking we like to slip our soiled poop rags into the Kleenex boxes of unsuspecting white folks–preferably those of Anglo, Germanic or Scandinavian stock.


      June 8, 2017 at 3:31 PM

      • You unwashed freaks also worship monkeys, so there’s that…

    • Early in V.S. Naipaul’s semi-autobiographic novel, A House For Mr. Biswas, his young protagonist, who is living with a Hindu priest and set to be apprenticed to him, doesn’t feel like going to the outhouse one night, so he poops in a handkerchief and tosses it out the window. The next day, the priest finds the poop bomb landed on his sacred tree, and that’s the end of Biswas’s pastoral career.

  22. Many french don’t use deodorant either. I learned to use it while in holidays in the UK. I didn’t like to be called “stinky” french (even if i love staying under the shower everyday for a long time, contrary to the belief all french fear the shower and the soap)

  26. The funny thing is is that there are parts of Europe where people don’t seem to use deoderant much if it all and there’s lots of BO in the summer. Not just places like Russia and Eastern Europe, but nice areas like Germany. With Indians, you expect them to stink, but you don’t expect BO in Europe so it’s a bit jarring when you experience it. The frequent showering and heavy use of deodorant and strict avoidance of emitting BO in public seems to be an American thing.


    June 9, 2017 at 10:43 AM

  27. I work for the army in accounting. I recently got in trouble for making a remark related to an Indian employee who works under me who can’t communicate with me, her coworkers, or our customers due to her poor English language skills. The customers have made multiple complaints about not understanding her emails or her not understanding them. Our division chief announced in a meeting that we were getting a second Indian employee, this time a male. She was talking about what a great addition he would be to the office and I merely said “can he speak English?” Everyone in the room broke out laughing because they were all aware of the problem with the Indian employee we already had. My division chief got an angry look on her face and then called me into a private conference room after the meeting where she lectured me about how we can’t make any derogatory remarks about someone related to race, religion, gender etc. There was nothing in there about moving here and not bothering to learn the native language, i.e. English, but apparently you can no longer say anything negative at all about immigrants without you being a racist or closet Nazi. I think the actual issue was that I made management look foolish by pointing out that they were hiring people without screening them for even something as basic as being able to assist the customers by understanding what they were saying. My division chief preferred to ignore something that was plainly obvious to everyone in the room (that’s why they all laughed) and try to turn it into an issue of me being narrow minded and irrationally prejudiced against minorities (which I’m not).
