Typical conversation I have with male relatives and friends of friends from India about dating in the U.S.:

Them: So, Sudip, have you like dated American girls?
Me: Uh…yea? I’m mean, they’re everywhere…
Them: No. I mean, American girls, like pure Americans.
Me: Do you mean Native Americans? Cause no. I have not.
Them: No…you know…American American…
Me: Okay. So, do you mean white American?
Them: Yes! American!
Me: You do realize they’re European-American, right? They’re not “pure” (finger quotes in the air).
Them: …
Me: (Sigh) I have…
Them: COOL!
Me: -_-
