Not at all. I'm not from India but a Southeast Asian country (not expats or anything like that though).
The rest of my family however... if I marry him I'm dreading the wedding. Will probably not bother with one at all

I have noticed this too and can only assume that it's because of the Asians in movies (Bruce Lee etc). Also the East Asian 'smart kid'.

I equate asian with Black (they are both people of a continent) and use East/South/SouthEast asian for specific populations.

My family follows the religious festivals and go to temple once a month but that's about it. His family go to church but he doesn't.
God is spiritual and personal. Organised religion is man-made and more about government than spiritual realisation.
Once Covid is over I will go the temple and bring him too

My parents are open-minded and like him. I don't think the rest of my family will accept him however. If I do end up with him there will probably be a fight as I don't want a big wedding with lots of racist relatives judging us,

I couldn't agree more.

Have you ever paid attention in geography? Black isn't a continent; Africa is.

Does being rude to strangers on the internet make you happy? If so I feel sorry for you.

Africa is a continent but people of African descent are more commonly referred to as Black, not African. Of course in the U.S the politically correct term is 'African-American' but nobody uses it. It's Black Lives Matter, not African Lives Matter.
Similarly Asian is what I use to refer to people from the continent (rather than Browns or Yellows). For some reason in the U.K/U.S people take Asian to mean Indians or Chinese respectively.

Indians, Chinese, Somalians etc are all people of a country.
