Among my favourite brown people are: My Arab, Indian and Latino friends.
I don't know if Brown Race refers only to "Desi" here, but I have a lot of Desi friends... Alsso I am Latina, and I have Latino and Arab friends (These races are considered "Brown" too, by American standards)... I wanted to meet Indie brown people, because I have not met too many off-line (In my city, that is) and Columbia is too little, I guess, to meet other than whites in the indie scene (It is also kind of why I am a member of _latinoclash)
I am also a college radio DJ in http://www.wusc.sc.edu That much I love India music!
