Priyanka Chopra has often spoken about how she faced racism in high school in the US. She was brown and there were not many people like her. In a recent interview with LA Times she said:
When I was in high school in America, I didn’t see anyone who looked like me hardly ever. I just thought that was normal because you don’t know any better. So I used to idolize so many other people, like Sarah Michelle Gellar on “Buffy.” But when I went back to India at age 17 and started traveling for work, that was when I slowly realized that we don’t all look like one person.
When Sarah read this interview, she tweeted to PC saying:

That’s so nice!
