dont know...maybe because many ppl say 'indian' or in our generation...(well in canada) many indian ppl title themselves as 'BROWN' dont know why though, and technically india is a SUB CONTINANTE...soo it wasnt really a part of 'Asia' to begin with Wink

i think we rather be proud that we are considered as special and 'notable' kind of people among all asians :p

but well ... people tend to use the terms like .. 'arabs' , 'chinese' , 'japs' ... the reason is to link people with more welknown and well-specified catagory then calling them asian generally

I hang out with a lot of Asians (Korean, Chinese, ect) and my town is filled by them. Now, people often make nasty comments about Asians and im like um hello? I m Asian too! But people say that they consider the word Asian to relate to Oriental people, and not to Indians. As for Native Indians, I agree; it's very annoying. Basically though, in my school, we are called either Indians or Hindus (even though some people are Muslim or ect.). So I guess it's a lose lose situation…we really need a new name for us! =] Oh and nice topic!
