Khan was born in Pensacola, Florida. His mother was from Kolkata, West Bengal, India and father was from Barisal, Bangladesh( ex Pakistan). He was raised by his mother in New Orleans, where she had a series of jobs and businesses. He went to public schools, where, as he recalls, "a few classmates were fresh out of jail and others were bound for top universities". Salman Khan holds three degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: a BS in mathematics, a BS in electrical engineering and computer science, and an MS in electrical engineering and computer science. He also holds an MBA from Harvard Business School....Wikipedia
Point well taken. Happy.

Fifth or sixth generation Americans are still called Irish, polish, Italian or newer Indians, Iranis, Afghanis or Pakistanis. Immigrants ex nationality is general term and not a serious issue.
Thx.
