This morning as I'm sure we all have, I was called by "Microsoft Tech Support". I wasted a half hour of their time saying I couldn't log in before they hung up.
Later I had told my Dad, as he asked if anyone called while he was gone. I replied with "Yeah, an Indian scammer working for Microsoft".
He got very angry with me for calling the man "Indian". He went on about how native Americans were classified as Indians untill the start of "Aboriginal" and that I was being extremely racist calling the man Indian.
He told me to look up why I can't, and so I did but what I had found all said it was fine, and to compare it to calling someone who's origin resides in Canada "Canadian".
So, I had told my dad what I'd found and he said it's different in Canada, specifically in BC because Aboriginals were classified as Indians. And saying "indian" people are going to assume I was talking about Aboriginals even in a context where I clearly refer to someone who's origin resides in India as "Indian".
So, assuming he is right, what do I call someone who was born, raised and resides in India?
