ok there's 2 times of indian one is the obvious native americans (awesome & freespirited) and then the indians of india. Let me further classify these indians. There's the ones that come straight from india, who smell funny, is funny, very hardworking, and for some reason, they're extremely cool in a way. not laid back, and not genuinely cool or a wanna-be, but just cool in their own quirky way. awesome, awesome people here if you arent a wanna-be cool person and your genuinely seeking a friend who is funny.
Now, there's the second kind of indian. this is the americanized kind, most commonly found in america or even india. the girls are weepy, don't know their own language, wear abercrombie, have HUGE egos,are obsessed with plucking out facial hair, talk with a stupid made up accent, and try to "play coy" and pretend to flirt or wink at total stranger boys, then run away and giggle uncontrollably. the boys wear "sk8er" clothes, wear sunglasses indoors, lean against walls in the mall and watch ugly girls, and look better in traditional indian clothes rather than tight clothes that highlight their thin unibrow. sometimes a fat math geek, sometimes a wannabe cool person. anyways, indian people ROCK and r really awesome, but watch out which kind you befriend!

Descriptive term used interchangably until recently to describe two different groups of people:
1) East Indians; origin of India
2) Native Americans; origin of North America.
While Indian is still an apt descriptive term of those who hail from the country India it is best avoided when used to refer to those who originated in North America. Some consider it to be politically incorrect but the bigger issue is probably the tendency for misunderstanding and confusion in our modern global society.
The new student in school is Indian.
Common responses: Which Indian? or Dots or feathers?
1. A person who like to take extreme pride that their "people" are the smartest and wealthiest minority group. They will flaunt these statistics at any given chance so that they can educate their non-indian friends.
2. A person who is obsessed with their skin tone or obsessed with obtaining a gora/gori. They're usually scared of the sun.
3. A person who will act ignorant in a temple to prove they're "modern".
4.They will wear expensive clothes when visiting India but when in the U.S. they will "freeload" on Taco Bell's pop/soda by asking for a water cup.
5. Usually attribute odd features such as parrot-nose or big bug eyes as attractive.
6. Esp. judgemental to their own people(north/south).

1. Noun; A citizen of India living abroadmore...
2. Noun; A hopeful, naive, wide-eyed medical or engineering student or professional from India that became a U.S. citizen or is in the process of becoming a citizen by way of abusing their student or work (H1B) visa privledges.
Tend to think they are superior intellectual beings (and project this onto random passers-by) while secretly harboring deep feelings of inferiority because they only live in their heads and are one-dimensional. Are used to competing intellectually in India because it's overcrowded and carry this mentality with them when to U.S. educational institutions or the workplace.
Funnel themselves into medical or engineering professions. Indians that migrate to the U.S. from India tend to be at the top of their class in India so this is all americans see. Typically work at large corporations so they can get H1B Visa sponsorship while "the man" sticks it to them financially by low-balling their salary and/or benefits. This is a win-win situation because "the man" has the Indian employee by the balls and can underpay him as a result and the H1B Indian wins because he landed a job in a high-tech industry. Hence, he can now call home and brag and this drastically increases his chances of securing and marrying an Indian woman who will be shipped to him because he has now "made it" but he doesn't realize that he was being (and is still being) manipulated and abused by "the man".
The term Cristobal Columbus coined to describe the inhabitants of the so called New World; the term stuck, and continues into modern times to describe a "Native American," (Also known as "Red Indians," a term predominantly coined by Indians (People from India), in order to specify the difference. The word "Indian," when describing Native Americans also has many derogatory and/or slang names, but call an "Indian" what you will, they are the people that Senior Columbus found when he stumbled upon a part of the earth that "Westerners" didn't know about...that is of course until it was actually recorded in "history."
Cristopher Columus' lack of worldy knowledge caused a miskew of the term "Indian" to describe people of a certain geographical locale.
