Most indigenous cultures around the world, including Indians, had no word for various races - even those that lived in multiracial environments. The Europeans saw - and continue to see - race everywhere. The American Anthropological Association said in an official statement a few years ago that race as a construct is non-existent and only imaginary. Americans are too obsessed with race - in a very unhealthy way. And unfortunately Indians are starting to melt into the American society, so race will be a big issue to us brainless Indians too in the future.
