how can you catagorize by "Indians" and "Black People"? Indian denotes a person from India. A Black Person can come from anywhere in the world. This thread is illogical. <head explodes>

Yes, but "Indian" can also denote American Indians, Canadian Indian, Latin American Indians, etc. So, since the original posting did not classify which Indian nation was being discussed - I have seen someone from all of the above mentioned Indian populations in shorts.

James, get out from behind that desk more!!!!

True that those people are "called" "Indians" but that is just from people that don't know any better.

I was referring to people from India.

If I was referring to American Indians, I would have used the term "native Americans".

You should know better.

We were being more "humorous" than technically or politically correct in our response. (I still think you need to get out from behind that desk!) We did not mean to sound contrary or condescending. By now - you guys should know us too! ;)

We're still cleaning the mess off of our monitor, B! Send out a warning signal before you explode again - so I can cover the computer! (YUCK!)
