Most people think that they look like African rather than Asian...
& Probably because their population is huge enough to be considered as a separated race...

Oh, man, how much more stupid can you get? All of Asian culture, which includes all of our religions, came from India. Go do some research and stop relying on retarded brainwashing school.

Also, India is where Asians came from. God, damn it, your idiocy annoys me. There are tons of "Asian" looking people in India. Like the Dalai Lama and Buddha for examples, twit.

Also, not all Asians are fair skinned, some are brown skinned and black skinned.

This thread is full of stupidity.

India is as Asian as you can get.

Because India is a former British colony like Hong Kong. Once you go West coast you don't go back... or something like that.

Sorry Vega, British Colonialism is like malaria. The symptoms disappear but you'll never be able to give blood and it'll always be with you. You may even have recurrent symptoms like... the end of a class system.

Oh, okay. Are you talking about India? Yes, that is one of my purposes here; to end all class/caste systems and other forms of negative separation.

Clearly we have an illiterate here...
I says most people think, I didn't claim that they are not Asian...

You said that Asian comes from India...?! Okay, can you to back it up with evidence..?!

You said that all of Asia's religion came from India...?! That is as stupid as can be....
You do realized that a lot of Asia country are Muslim based right...?!
You do realized that Chinese have their own form of religion like Confucianism & Taoism right...?

And go do some research and stop relying on retarded brainwashing scripture...

We all know people from India are Asians, but why are they not recognized as being fully culturally diversified with the rest of Asia? Even though we know Indians are Asians and one of the major religions in Asia (Buddhism) comes from India, it seems like Indians are put in their own little special group. Don't pretend that you don't see this.


India, Pakistan and Bangladesh used to be the same country. I guess Indians think they're too cool to mix with other people? lol

I don't see Indians as "Asians". Of course, geographically they are on the Asia continent, but so is Russia, that doesn't make them "Asians".

Indians deserve their own category because they don't look Asian, they look more like Caucasian except having darker features.

Cultural-wise, I don't see any similarities between Indian culture and Asian cultures.

Neat little factoid about India: it is second only to the U.S. in total number of residents who are fluent in English. English is actually the primary language used there in official government, business and higher education. Which, when you think about it becomes obvious because of who you'll typically speak to when making a customer service call to a bank or airline, etc.

I have never in my life thought Indians look like Africans. Indians are Caucasian. They might not always have light skin, but it is their features that set them apart from Asians and Africans (unless they are mixed-race). They have Caucasian features/bone structure, straight hair (non-typical-Black hair), non-typical Asian eyes which are so distinctive).



Well, Indians in India are dark as Africans in African countries, whilst I don't think Indians look like any Africans in the slightest, I still can't agree on classifying Indians as Caucasians. Putting the obvious darker skin tone aside, Indians mostly have very big wide brown eyes where as many Caucasians have different colours of eye colours and smaller eyes. Indians have much bigger noses than Caucasians, the hair of Indian descents is generally very thick and black and visible all over the body (Sorry but I have seen some pretty hairy Indian ladies), whilst Caucasians have relatively fine hair even if it's dark, and has much less body hair on both men and women.

It's kinda funny about the term "Asian", because in Britain, Asian people are what you call South Asians such as Indians/Pakistanis/Bengalis, and the rest of Oriental people are classified as "Chinese".

Typical questionnaire of Ethnic background in the UK:

-White subcategory
1) White British
2) White Irish
3) White others

-Asian subcategory
1) Indian
2) Pakistani
3) Bengali
4) Other Asian

-Chinese subcategory (they might as well say Yellow)
1) Chinese
2) Other Chinese(Translation: I can't tell the difference between Korean/Japanese/Thai/Filipinos and other Asians who look like Chinese)
