Caste, another name for racism

How easily these celebrities can lie to the media that there is no racism in India. Well, what about casteism, Ms Shetty? When you guys feel degraded by westerners then you call it racism and expect a nation to apologise to you, but what about your own country, India, where a person is judged merely on the basis of caste? Well from editors to celebrities, from politics to a local person ought to change their perspective first about casteism instead calling anyone else racist.
