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.
