I suspect that most southasian users will vote like that but many others will vote they are.

They are a slowly but surely dissapearing race who are on the brink of being extinct. What are they? A mix between European ancestry and that of people who migrated from South Asia through the Byzantine empire on to several different regions in Europe.

They are not fully southasian but they have substantiantial soutshasian ancestry plus they likely originated in southasia. when we look at a people we consider ulitmately their origins, their language is also from india.

In the meantime you'll be a 'dilo' Romani speaking in the tongue of the gadjé I'd say :p

i know roma who do and roma who hate being associated with india, i didnt know that before, but i discovered on facebook some roma who claim they are from middle east/israel. so there are roma who take pride in indian origins and roma who say thats fake and roma are from middle east/israel (but they acknowledge roma lived long in india and took up indian genetics but they think their ultimate first origins are in israel)
