Indians are tired

Indians are collectively tired of having to defend that we are authentically part of the Asian race.  I'm tired of having whites or Africans claim that Indians are not Asian.  I'm tired of having Asians claim that Indians are not Asian.  I'm tired of having this issue repeatedly brought up when talking about Indians.

We must not embrace separatist identities

We must advocate that we are part of the Asian race.  We cannot be passive about this issue.  We must not do nothing while one Indian claims that they are African or white, because they are speaking for us.  Everyone who is not Indian will view this traitor as speaking for all of us, leading to more tired defense that we are in fact Asian in race.  We must not focus on an identity that is a component of this race like South Asian or Desi.  We are just Asian.  East Asians do not call themselves East Asians; they just say they're Asian.  Southeast Asians do not call themselves Southeast Asians; they just say they're Asian.  We are not South Asians; we are just Asians.

We must mix with East and Southeast Asians

Indians must mix with East and Southeast Asians.   Upon arrival, Europeans discriminated against other European ancestries in the United States.  They didn't feel that they were the same race.  It wasn't until they mixed that it became hard to distinguish them as separate groups.  It became easier to view them as the same race, because the mixed ones connected the differing appearances.  We Indians must do the same thing.  There is zero benefit to Indian women to produce children with white or African men.   White-Indian people will be relegated to an Indian status by American society.  These white-Indian mixes will further add to whites claiming Indians, since they will see these as pure Indians and, at the same time, find an increasingly white appearance about them.  Indian-white mixes will not have a higher status than Indians and will have the negative effect of confusing whites more that we are the same race with them.  African-Indian mixes will be claimed by Africans as pure Africans.  African-Indian mixes will confuse Africans more that we are the same race,  because they will be unable to distinguish us from them.  We must mix with East and Asians, because other races will be unable to distinguish us as apart from them.  Only through this process will other races be forced to accept the fact that Indians are part of the same Asian race with East and Southeast Asians.
