I think it's because white people aren't all the same in terms of appearance. You have your natural blonde,red,brown,black and light or mixed colours, with a variety of eye colours. There is no variety in the Asian race which is why that guy posted that these people are cosmetically doing surgery to themselves to attain these features that would make them "white". Asians I suppose seem to have an inferiority complex on white people where they idolize them as "beautiful people", which is terrible because I think Asians are a beautiful race. Like look at Japan for example. EVERYBODY is born with pale or tan skin with dark eyes and maybe dark brown/black hair. It's impossible for an Asian to have Arian like features because it's not in their genes, the only way an Asian could have other eye colours is if they cosmetically do it, are born half Asian and half white and maybe into the future if they implement certain genes with the advancement of technology.

Not only that but American culture tends to change things a lotl For example, the other day a friend showed me a comic book of a girl that had fairly dark skin. The American version she was "Americanized," where her skin was lighter.

Did you know the term "Aryan" is actually from India (as is the Swastika)? The Germans (or rather, Nazis) just stole the term and reversed the symbol to apply it to what they considered the "ultimate/master" race, and changed the symbol of the Swastika to a negative one. In India it means good luck or something akin to that if I remember correctly. (Correct me if I am wrong).

And Indians themselves are capable of having non-black hair, and non-dark eyes especially the light skinned ones. Then again, they're Caucasian, though no "European-Caucasian"...Indians are like the Middle-Easterners who are considered Caucasian.

Wow. Since you mentioned that, it reminds me of a show where the characters look Asian but in a horrible way. It's kinda sad.

I think the show is called Flower of Evil.

Light skin, for millennia, has always been the standard of beauty in any Asian country. This, couples with the different colored hair/eyes of stereotypical Europeans naturally became very popular.


OK let me ask you this. WHY do you as an Asian think that other Asians around you desire to be "White"? What makes us different from you? Who cares if someone has blue or green eyes? Is appearance everything in life (of course not)? Sounds like to me you're one of the many that want these traits, you sound angry and insecure about you being an Asian, do you deep down feel that way? I'm just curious maybe I am wrong.

people from the Eastern half of India are considered Mongoloid, which is the same race as Chinese, Japanese and Korean people. Indians from the Western half of India are considered Caucasian. Caucasian is the same race as Europeans and Arabs.

Geographically speaking, India is located on the Asian continent, so to sum everything up, Indians are Asians.

indians are part of the eastern asian line

Lol please.

This is something that simply thrives in the Asian community, and I mention this not because I am insecure, but rather because many Asians cannot be happy with the way they are, and this annoys me. I was brought up to be happy with my features, and to see so many other Asians really like another race's features over their own to the point of having surgery to change it is nonsense.

Why be something else you're not, and why make it okay in your society to just tell your people "just get plastic surgery" instead of making them content with their own unique features? By doing this, you are basically telling them "you're not good enough with your natural race's looks" and "your race is no as attractive as another". There is going to be a serious problem (there already is in fact) with self confidence without plastic surgery.

This is a major problem in places for example, like South Korea where the plastic surgery is the highest in the world and people get the surgery to look more "Western"...Aka, white. Did you know, several foreign teachers in South Korea said that most of their students in class had no idea what it was like to love someone regardless of how they looked and majority said they wanted plastic surgery to look "Western"? That is pretty sickening.

Don't believe me? Just look at countless reviews, articles and whatnot. Written by other Asians, non-Asians, foreigners of all races in Asian countries...etc.

I am interested in this, because as a person of Asian ethnicity this interests me.
