Retaining ethnic pride

http://cognews.com/1161537027

"Ethnic pride can help teenagers maintain happiness when faced with stress, according to a new study by a Wake Forest University psychologist published in the October issue of "Child Development". Adolescents with positive feelings toward their ethnic group say they are happier on a daily basis than those who have a more negative attitude about their ethnic identity, said Lisa Kiang, assistant professor of psychology at Wake Forest and lead author of the study"
A majority of the Indian Americans tend to retain their ethnic identity through cultural practices and maintaining their religious and cultural ties with their country. This also helps them limit the damaging effects of racial hatred which they  some times face in every day life.
