Was Gandhi Racist?

Was Gandhi Racist? Selective research and reporting have sometimes distorted the image of Gandhiji.  As a result, Ela Gandhi (Arun Gandhi’s sister and granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi) felt compelled to compile a message included below.  Satish Dhupelia, great grandson of Mahatma Gandhi and who lives in Durban South Africa, was interviewed on the South African Radio on the matter of Gandhi being racist and his comments are also contained below.   I personally traveled to South Africa twice on the Satyagraha Tour of South Africa wherein we visited the Phoenix Settlement.  Ela Gandhi gently walked us through Gandhiji’s history, “Seeds of Democracy”...
