ABCD or American-Born Confused Desi has become a polarizing factor in the South Asian diaspora.Though the term was originally coined in reference to Indian-Americans, it has been adopted by the South Asian community at large.

The longer and lesser known form "American Born Confused Desi, Emigrated From Gujarat, House In Jersey" is also occasionally seen; playing on the alphabet theme, it has been expanded for K-Z variously as "Kids Learning Medicine, Now Owning Property, Quite Reasonable Salary, Two Uncles Visiting, White Xenophobia, Yet Zestful" or "Keeping Lotsa Motels, Named Omkarnath Patel, Quickly Reaching Success Through Underhanded Vicious Ways, Xenophobic Yet Zestful".

Usage

Priya: You put the C in ABCD..you go back to India once every 5 years to some random village and do dandiya in New Jersey once a year to Punjabi MC and you think you are Indian?
Puja: Well, at least I am not a FOB like you.

Definition

American born confused Desi - someone born in the U.S but with parents from South Asia. Trapped between two worlds - neither FOBish enough for their parents nor Americanized enough for their classmates. Spends a lot of time hiding their true nature by allowing mispronunciations of their name, never inviting friends over, not talking about what they had for dinner, pretending they don't speak "Indian," talking smack about other Indians, trying to come off like a slacker, lusting after white women, etc.

Usage

Man, if I weren't such an ABCD I'd be captain of the football team AND head cheerleader.
