Surya, You’re Fired!

Yalamanchili’s back is turned in this photo with fellow team-members

Surya Yalamanchili gave the fight of his life on last night’s episode of The Apprentice, but it wasn’t enough, and Trump (reluctantly) gave the Rutgers-grad the boot.

Did anyone tune in?

I did, and it gave me no small amount of anxiety to see Yalamanchili’s adopted team gang up on him in the boardroom. He’s “different from the rest of us,” they told Trump.

Really? Different because he’s desi? Or because he’s competent?

Sadly enough, the only non-white member of his team (James Sun, a preppy, Korean American founder of the social networking company Zoodango) was the most hostile toward Yalamanchili.
