To avoid ridicule, Rega Jha, editor of Buzzfeed India, says many people find it easier to learn to adapt to fit in rather than attempt to "reverse centuries of internalized racial paradigms."

"It's difficult to tolerate being assumed as less educated, less intelligent, less valuable, all on the basis of longer vowels and harder T's. It is straight-up exhausting, in fact, to have your thoughts and feelings and opinions ignored, filtered into the backseat by the way the words sound, before they had a chance to mean anything," she added.

BuzzFeed India editor Rega Jha, who runs a team of six from a small office in Mumbai, is replicating the same editorial strategy that has worked so well in the U.S.: Focus first on humor and pop culture, then gradually add more substantive journalism. "The plan down the line," she says, "is to hire a news team to really aggressively cover the kinds of stories I don't think the mainstream organizations here are doing justice. Jha won't say how big BuzzFeed's audience is but she hopes to build it-and, eventually, its revenue streams-with distinctive coverage of progressive social justice issues like sexuality and feminism, still fringe topics for much of India's media but of increasing interest to younger, urban Indians. More than half of the country's 1.2 billion population is under the age of 25, including Jha herself.
