Do the Japanese really think that westerns(American, Europeans, South American, and etc) have big noses? I was one YouTube I was watching a Japanese commercial, there were two japanese people a guy and a girl that had a blonde wig, dressed up like a foreigner and the girl had a big fake nose. I'll just post the link, see for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEzKX5CnWKU Tell me what you think. (BTW, if your nose is i guess you say big, theres nothing wrong you.)

Could someone explain to me what the commercial was about? I saw it, but I do not get the meaning. Any way, I saw the nose thing and I don't think that it was intended to offend anyone. It was innoscent generalization at best.

Yeah I've heard that before, but we kind of do. Well, at least most people I know.

Lack of intent to offend doesn't matter so much as you may think.
In fact, plenty of racism lacks the intent to offend - but that doesn't mean it's innocent and not ignorant.

Well, western people's noses have a mostly different shape (Not all, some people have similar noses to Asians), and I guess it just seems bigger to them. It's like the whole stereotype that Americans/Europeans are all blonde haired and blue eyed.

Maybe. Have you seen the Japanese commercial where they exaggeratedly altered the Japanese actor's nose and added blonde hair digitally as a "joke" marketing tactic. That was beyond offensive. Not only that, but the social ignorance in east asia is really bad. A lot of people have a terrible misconception of foreigners. Like for example: if black people go in the pool their ink will seep into the water

I mean, WTF?

I guess the only good side of this is that you don't typically get shot for being black in asia, plus they are a lot more smarter than us so maybe that tells us something.

*edit* this is what I get for not reading OP. Well I guess you have already seen the commercial

I don't know how japanese think.


But I'm Asian, and the asian people around me, we think of White people's nose as more pronounced than our nose; and more pointy.

We don't think of it as "big".


And you have no idea how much Asian love White people's features; whenever an Asian person has a pointy nose, my Asian relatives like to comment, "Wow that Asian guy's got a pointy nose like a White person's". It's a compliment.


Asian people would never diss White people's feature. I'm just being honest. Not trying to be stereotypical or having an inferiority-complex.


My nose is pointy, and my aunt likes to compliment me saying that I have a White person's nose, and I'm just like, "Whatever". We're all humans who evolved from the same ancestors, of course our features will overlap, "pointy nose" is not exclusive to White people.

That is interesting. I've been told by classmates that I have "white lips". not really sure why though lol. anyway I know all Japanese or as Asians don't think alike because everyone is different. But Im thinking over in Japan having a small nose is pretty or beautiful. So if they see someone with a wider nose I guess see it funny or weird. Idk, I still respect the Japanese. Much Respect.

In Asia, only the females get scrutinized for their looks. Asian people like women to have small nose, small face, small lips etc...


If you're male, you can get away with anything, nobody will say a man's nose is too big.

I guess we as women, we get judged the most. I think thats in most cultures though.

I don't really have a 'big nose'...larger in other places, but nose is definitely not one.

I have a pretty large nose, and it does seem that people from western countries noses' are more pronounced.
