OP/ED: Where does Donald Trump want Indians to 'go back' to?

This is for those people who are dedicated to their centuries-old, narrow-minded, “Indian” stereotypes. I am very “Indian” looking, dark-skinned, long hair, etc. and have been mistaken by many an Anglo-indoctrinated person for a “Chinaman” or a Mexican. Some choice obscene expletives have been used to describe me too, but most of the time I am incorrectly called “Indian.”
