Definition funny of Abcd:
American Born Confused Desi A derogatory term used for Indians who have grown up in the United States and who act "American" (as stupid as that sounds).
I think Raj is such an ABCD.
(American Born Confused Desi) Term used to describe those of the Indian (South East Asian) descent who are unaware of or are unwilling to outwardly project their Indian Heritage. The title is typically used by those of the same nationality but who are unwilling or unable to assimilate to a culture other than their own. While it is thought to be negative to be considered a ABCD, the term seems to do more damage to the culture it is meant to protect. Instead of dealing with real personality traits such as hard-working, intelligent, or family-oriented, the term ABCD focuses on the trivial aspects of one's ethnicity. i.e. Music, Film, Dress. OPINION- I'm certain if anyone, U.S. or abroad, were asked to describe the joys and hardships that come with being Indian, that he or she would not reach for movie stubs or cds. It seems so unfortunate that a nation, where so many struggle to succeed by any means, would create it's own special way to bring it's people down.
"Did you see johnny with all those Eminem posters on his wall? Total ABCD. HaHa"
American Born Confused Desi. ABCDs are Americans of Indian ancestry who generally travel in packs. They can be seen in the pre-med classes of college campuses across the country. They're generally from the suburbs, listen to rap music, and get drunk every weekend while their parents think that they are little angels who don't know a thing about sex or drugs. Although ABCDs never hang out with non-Indians, they usually abhor their ancestral culture and refuse to watch Indian movies, listen to Indian music, speak in Indian languages, or eat Indian food. ABCD guys are the Indian equivalent of wiggers while the girls are stuck-up spoiled brats who don't know how to drive. Despite usually being cheap, ABCDs are willing to spend lots of money on cover charges and alcohol.
Sumeet from Sagedale is the ultimate ABCD; he's pre-med, drinks obnoxious amounts of alcohol, is always late, and only associates with other ABCDs.
American Born Confused Desi (ABCD) is an offensive ethnic slur] that refers to people of Desi] origin (of South Asia]n, especially Indian, descent), raised in the United States]. Its use by other races, recent Indian immigrants in particular for coming up with the term is regarded as offensive. It is a close relative of the term Jook-sing] or "A.B.C." for American-born Chinese. The ethnic slur was developed out of immigrant/non-immigrant hostility. "Confused" refers to a hypothetical confusion regarding identity, having been born in America or lived there since childhood and been closer to American culture than their ancestor's native culture. The notion of this identity crises comes from differences in accent, dress, and etiquette between recent immigrants and American Born Indians. Most modern day "American Born" Indians have very strong ties to India. They frequently visit friends and family in their ancestor's native land. They typically cherish their Indian heritage, and observe both American and Indian cultural traditions. The typical American Born Indian is fluent in speaking an Indian language in addition to English, and understands both the American cultural value system and the Indian cultural value system. Most integrate into American society easier than recent Indian immigrants. This idea of the hypothetical confused identity is not unique to Indian Americans alone - Hostility toward British Asian]s (the term used for Indians and other South Asians raised and living in Britain) have dawned similar ideas of struggles.
