DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

1. A survey conducted in September 2020 found that half of Indian Americans reported being discriminated against in the past year, primarily because of skin color.

2. Google apologized after its search algorithm answered the question “What is the ugliest language in India?” with a fact box about Kannada.

3.  After being vaccinated in India, many students were told that they need to get vaccinated again by WHO-approved vaccines before attending U.S. colleges and universities this fall.

4.  Arizona Department of Corrections issued an apology and blamed miscommunication after staff at a prison cut the beard of a Sikh prisoner.

5.  A Chennai boy set a Guinness World Record by climbing 50 stairs in 18.28 seconds while hula hooping.

(All 5 really happened)
