Your children really look like Americans

I am an ethnically Indian woman married to a white man. Our two kids are a happy blend of brown and white. We live in a community that has a large number of recent Indian immigrants. I am surprised by their reaction when they see me with my children. When they say, “your children really look like Americans”, I wonder what their perception of American is.
