My Frustration with misuse of "Indian"

Indians are ONLY from India - The rest are all MISTAKEN IDENTITIES.
Christopher Columbus made a mistake in 1492: He identified "Native Americans" as "Indians".

Over five centuries now, Americans have still not corrected the error.
I am from India and proud to be Indian - Have pride in your national identity, stop piggy backing on ours.
Don't call me "Asian Indian" or "East Indian" - I am INDIAN.
People who are not from INDIA and call themselves INDIAN are either stupid or lieing.
Native Americans are NOT and they don't deserve to be called INDIAN. Cherokee, Navajo, Hopi, Pueblo, Shawnee, whichever nation you belong to... be proud of your identity.
