indians are people who come from or are living in the country INDIA!!! Whoever the guy above me was talking about those are NATIVE AMERICANS. There is a big difference.
the indians film industry has a rep for coming out with at least 500 movies a year.

A person who is from the country India, which apparently doesn't believe in the concept of deodorant. Not to be confused with the term Native American, which is a group of people that drink alcohol in copious amounts.
Dude were you in the airport after the Air India flight arrived. Those fucking Indians made the place smell worse than skunk.

Lets go drink firewater like an Indian does!!

Definition is for asian indian (am one myself). Stereotypes include but are not limited to-

1. indians smell. obvious where this comes from, we do generally eat spicy food but im pretty sure that we dont smell of it 24/7.

2. indians have a superiority complex. im being totally objective here; yes some of us do. i dont but my parents are forever being annoying by comparing other things unfavourably to indian things. i hate this. objectivity is important. but wth i have to put up with it because theyre mad.

3. we're intelligent. i dont know about the actual genetic value of this stereotype but a lot, and i mean A LOT of emphasis is placed on education within indian teenagers. where i live in england, if i study a lot my british friends would say 'omg you've like studied all day! you need to take a break' if i did the same thing in india, my indian friends would probably say 'omg is that all youve done? how much do you think youre gonna get on the test? are you confident that that much studying is enough?' so yeah it can get pretty heavy.

IMO you cant really stereotype a country with over 1 billion people. theres lots of different people, everyone is unique and yeah just bear that in mind not only for indians, but for ANY racial/social stereotype.
1. 'dude you eat curry all the time, you stink' -ignorant loser

'well at least i have deodorant. unfortunately there is no cure for stupid people yet. though i hear they're doing research on it in india' -indian person

2. 'okay so britain might be developed but obviously india is much better' - MY DAD >.<

'hmm. so although britain has little to no poverty, an excellent welfare state, and effective law enforcement policies, it is still somehow worse than india which is in still in stage 2 development? am i the only one who sees the flaw in this argument?' - me

3. 'you know raj got 98% in maths last week?' -some guy

'wow.. his parents must have given him hell for that' - indian empathiser

'why? thats an awesome score, he only misplaced a decimal point' - some guy

'you clearly know nothing about indian/asian parents' - indian empathiser *shakes head sadly*

Ignoring all the racist comments and such, I'll have to add that most people don't have a correct image of Indians. Has anyone noticed that the tip of North India touches the China border? Does anyone have the knowledge that there are many different appearances of Indians?

Indians have a variety of appearances. I am pure Indian, from the tip of the north, and I have green eyes, fair skin, and brown hair... light brown at that. There is no one related to me who is not Indian. People have never known from first look that I am Indian.

Indians from the north look very Chinese or Spanish (not sure what the green eyes and brown hair leads to), Indians from the south tend to have darker skin (naturally because they're closer to the equator), and from the middle they have golden or light caramel skin. Most people think of Southern Indians and no others but this is not the whole picture.

I'm proud of my origin and I think my people are very beautiful as they are. Because we have so many colors (from the palest to the darkest) we are very accepting of everyone. India is a beautiful country and so are our people.
Me: The country I am from is India...

Person: You're not Indian! You're white!

Me: Shut up you ignorant kid... not all Indians are dark, and even if some are, does it really matter?

A breed of Asians who have pride despite the fact that they hail from a relatively poor country because they outdo various ethnicities when provided with the right platform.

By definition it should refer to those who are from or trace their ancestry to India, but is also commonly used in the U.S. and Canada to refer to indigenous/native peoples of North America.

The term is commonly thought to have begun with the misconception by Christopher Columbus that the Caribbean islands were the islands of the Indian Ocean (known to Europeans as the Indies) which he had hoped to reach by sailing west across the Atlantic. Even though Columbus’ mistake was soon recognized, the name stuck and for centuries the native people of the Americans were collectively called Indians.

American Indian is the most common and politically correct modern term for indigenous American peoples, particularly in legal/official language. “Indian” or “Indian American” can connote people from or who trace their heritage to India, however "Indian" is still widely used to refer to natives, particularly in contexts where it is unlikely to be confused with people from India. In general, native people prefer the term American Indian to Native American, though the latter is in common use and the terms are basically interchangeable. “Indian” is a rather collective term that disregards the cultural/geographical diversity of the peoples it refers to, thus the best descriptor is to refer to specific tribes by their tribe name (e.g. “he is Cherokee”).

In Canada, where East Indians outnumber those of aboriginal ancestry, the term First Nation is commonly used.
