The word can be used for two different races of people.

1) When Columbus found America while looking for India, they started calling the natives as Indians. The term Indian (or "Red Indian")is routinely used to call the original people who inhabited the land what is today USA as well as part of Canada. However, Native American is a politically correct term to call a person of that origin. Some Native Americans consider it offensive if you call them Indian.

2) This term originally and accurately also refers to a person originating from the country (or a citizen of)India.
In America, Indian refers usually to Native American and sometimes a person from India. If you're in America and two people are talking:

One: He is an Indian
Two: You mean from India? or Native American.

In most other parts of the world:
One: He is an Indian.
Two: Oh really, I've been to India before. Its too hot out there.

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?

Indians are an academically advanced people who when given the opportunity will often exceed others in any given area of expertise. They are also known for their spicy foods and curries, and inventing the idea of '0' before the Mayans. Hinduism, the main religion, is the one of the oldest surviving religions in the world and the most tolerant of other religions. Bollywood and bhangra music are entering into the American mainstream with hits such as the blockbuster movie Bend it like Beckham and the hit music track, Beware of the Boys
Dude, have u heard that one track by Jay-Z and the Punjabi MC? It's called 'Beware of the Boys', go check it out if you love indians
