India’s increased growth rate and its emergence as one of the top economies of the world, means that Indians in foreign geographies are increasingly facing a backlash from the natives – as they fear a takeover from people of Indian origin.
In a recent incident, a dinner with friends turned into a frightening experience for some individuals of Indian origin. As they finished dinner and headed towards their cars they were confronted with a woman, later identified as Esmi Uptown – who began to aggressively confront the peaceful group.
This racist attacking these innocent women is Esmi Upton of Plano, Texas. Full name: Esmeralda Armendarez-Upton, she is a realtor for California Federal Bank. She is a parishioner at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Plano, TX.— Johnny Akzam (@JohnnyAkzam) August 25, 2022

“You are f*cking Indians, that’s why” was her tirade. “They come to America because they want a better life, but they’re obviously not living a great life in India” she continued.
She interestingly identified herself as a Mexican-American, but claimed to be ‘superior’ as she was born in the USA.
She then went on to criticize the Indian accent.
“Everywhere I f*cking go, you Indians are everywhere” she continued!
Another view of this event where you can hear at the end that she says she is going to get out her gun on shoot one of the women.— Johnny Akzam (@JohnnyAkzam) August 25, 2022
They’re in Texas. It’s likely she was carrying. pic.twitter.com/H7Tw3fWfhd
This turned into a physical assault as Esmi Uptown began to assault the peaceful group of friends who had not connect with her.
The situation got further dangerous, as it seems she was pulling out a weapon to assault the group.
Gun laws in Texas are quite lax. Generally, to carry a handgun in public in Texas without an LTC, a person must be at least 21 years old. Not have a prior felony conviction as described in Texas Penal Code Section. Not have a recent conviction for certain types of misdemeanors as described in Texas Penal Code Sections.

As India shifts from a low income economy, to a high growth economy there seem to increasing racial and other attacks on people of Indian origin living across the world.
General Americans however reacted sportingly. “Happy to share this. Remember her name (Esmi Armendarez Upton) and her face. Also remember that she is, by her own admission, an immigrant, i.e., Mexican American yet she obviously doesn’t understand the irony of her actions” said Carol Deschambers @CDeschambault
