Yep. I'm willing to label myself Asian (compression), but Asian usually
expands to Oriental, not Indian. The expansion is hammered home ALL THE TIME
in the media, which feed the cycle of resentment at being "lumped in". Even A
Magazine, which claims to represent the asian generation, grudgingly contains
< 3% Indian content (and most of those bits are Indian horoscopes).
And, it's equally wrong to call the type "Indian", because India is only one
nation among several; you can't get away with calling 'em all Chinese, but the
darkies are all 'Indian'
