    Mindy Kaling’s older brother, Vijay Chokal-Ingam, says he is in hot water with his sister because of
    claims made in his book that he only got into medical school by posing as a black man.

    On his blog, “Almost Black,” he says he shaved his head, trimmed his eyelashes, and claimed to be
    black during the application process, reports the Daily Mail.

    “I was determined to become a doctor, and I knew that admission standards for certain minorities
    under affirmative action were, let’s say… less stringent?” wrote Chokal-Ingam.

    “I got into medical school because I said I was black. The funny thing is I’m not.”
