I don't think its racist.
I sometimes have difficulty distinguishing between Japanese and Koreans and I know plenty of both. I use to feel bad about it until I mentioned it to a Japanese friend, she laughed and said that they sometimes have the same problem so I felt better.

Re: Racism?

It is not racist, it is a primitive surviving skill we learn when we are babies, we need to distinguish our family member faces when we are babys that's why it gets hard for us to distinguish people of different facial features of our mother.

Re: Racism?

Some right wingers remain under the illusion that racism does not exist in the USA. That it is only a figment in the imagination of leftists or of minorities. But racism is very real and the so called "wilding" case in which police manufactured evidence and forced confessions illustrates this quite effectively. Now, there is a new documentary which shows how it is the police who were the real criminals in this case:

http://www.csmonitor.com/The-Culture...tral-Park-Five


Some of you who are old enough to remember this case know how ultra reich wing racist Rush Limbaugh spent an entire week discussing this and how it affirmed that black men were all out to rape white women. Then, years later when DNA evidence established their innocence, we did not get so much as one word of regret from that racist Hitlerian jackass. Today, those racist cops are retired and enjoying their tax financed pensions when they should have gone on trial for conspiracy to commit murder and for RICO violations.

Serena = Oracene
Venus = Richard

I think. Lol

Serena's face is rounder than Venus, thats how I would always be able to tell them apart.

Perfectly understandable, as Korea has been occupied by Japan or China thru much of its history. I think many (if not most) Koreans look like a "cross" between Chinese and Japanese; which isn't meant 2B disrespectful to them, just to acknowledge that part of the genome of most Koreans is presumably Chinese, and part Japanese.

Re: Racism?

cross-race effect is not racist but i find it a bit annoying when people don't bother trying to distinguish between individuals of a different race. my closest friends are very diverse and it bothers me if some people don't bother remembering their names but just call them "that asian guy" or "that black girl". that's highly annoying, and not just because in some cases there's more than one person who could be described like that.

personally i don't really feel that effect much. i even can see similarities between individuals accross the race boundaries. like, there is a black girl who appears in a music video that reminds me of one of my asian friends a lot.

and fwiw i also don't think ana and julia look all that similar. i also highly doubt i would confuse serena and venus but they do look like sisters.

I think this also has to do with the writing and phonetics differences between languages, which can be very considerable. Some middle eastern and asian names can be really hard to memorize and pronounce correctly even for me, and I studied languages for years, so generally speaking, I don't think ppl do that because they lack respect or don't care.

WTF are you talking about JR

Korea was occupied by Japan from 1910 to 1945. That's it. And China? When did China occupy Korea?

And what, Korean genome is part Chinese and Japan?

Re: Racism?



Is this supposed to be racist? On paper it should be, like grape soda, but on real life no one takes the grape soda thing seriously and both black and white people joke about it all the time


Because I laughed my ass off with this gif

Not state to state, but Korea was certainly settled by Chinese ppl, which the former being a small peninsula jutting into the sea (its only land border being with China) facilitated a mixed genetic lineage ova the centuries. Also native Koreans living in China and "intermarrying" B4 they or descendants went back.... thus inherited genetics, as indeed incorporated into appearance. Of course there were similar "unions" between Koreans and Japanese for a very long time; and Japanese-Chinese.

As a footnote, the Kampo herbal medicines of Japan are essentially the same as TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) remedies, albeit with different names.

KFC (fried chicken) is like schnitzel.

Is this funny?




And ...

In China, where KFC first opened in 1987, it is the largest Western restaurant chain, with over 4,000 branches, and China is one of the only countries in the world where McDonald's is not the dominant fast food chain - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KFC


Recently ...

Japan Airlines will begin serving KFC on select holiday flights. (Japan Airlines)
