    What an idiot! He clearly assumes the Asian guy is Japanese: Japanese slant up, Chinese down. Little does he know the guy is actually from Manchester…

    Kim Jae-Dong is from Manchester? I didn’t know that.

  • SomeguyinKorea

    Is it any less racist to assume that the guy is a “외국인”?

    This doesn’t faze me.

    It’s not like I owe this kid or his country 2.5 trillion dollars in debt.

    It’s the other way around. clearly you’ve never been teased about it.

    Not quite the way to look for a different slant on things . . .

    #1 is right about japanese. It’s slanted up.

    As for chinese and other asians, it doesn’t matter which direction you slant.

  • PekingMan

    @5 No, but I’ve been bullied about a load of other stuff that made me ‘different’ from the majority. I’m sorry you didn’t pick up on my sarcasm, I thought the Manchester comment would have given it away…My fault!

    -_- Perhaps i should have included a smiley face, as i was being sarcastic myself

    I think you have it the wrong way round………

    Chinese people have small slanted eyes. Some varies though. Their skin complex are not necessary yellow, but some are and some are pale as the color white.

    Northern Chinese: Speak Mandarin, Tall, Pale skin (unless they are farmer, then darkened by sun as Chinese tan too easily), small eyes, usually double eyelid, sometimes burly usually wiry appearance, black or brown hair, sometimes red/gold strands, EYES slanted up or sideways, flat nose

    Southern Chinese: Speak Mandarin, Hokkien, Min, or Cantonese, Pale or dark skin depending on heritage, slightly bigger eyes, almost always double eyelid, black hair, EYES slanted up or sideways, shorter and slimmer build (changing these days), flat nose

    ————————————————————-

    Korean people have small slanted eyes as well, but since they have higher cheek bone feature, the cheek bone actually pushes their slant upward. Most Korean people, but not all… have flat faces.

    —————————————————————-

    And last, Japanese people have bigger eyes than the Chinese and Korean. Perhaps, that explains why the characters eyes in anime are so big. The guys have more facial features as well.

    Japanese: Speak Japanese, pale skin (seldom dark, dunno why), medium sized eyes, sometimes double eyelid sometimes not, jet black hair, usually very slim features, short build (changing), EYES slanting down, larger outward nose

    ——————————————————————-

    However: Asian people usually cannot tell what country another asian is from solely on color or bodily characteristics. They can tell from clothing styles, manners or when the other begins to speak.

    Lol! Total communication break down on all sides

    That guy making the slant eye face, a little cosmetic surgery in Myongdong will fix that for good.

    The way I remember it from grade school is “Chinese (pull eyes up), Japanese (pull eyes down), dirty knees, look at these (pull on shirt at the chest to imply breasts).”

    He’s not making a racist gesture – he’s pointing out how little scarring there was after his bilateral lobotomy.

    I’d rather have a free bottle in front of me than a prefrontal lobotomy! Maybe that was this nonracist’s choice, too — alcoholic stupification generally leaves no visible scars . . .

    I expect more from a teenager. Not much more, but more.

    If it makes anyone feel any better, the girl on the other side appears to be gazing lovingly into a Samsung phone.

  • Q

    The Asians who have galapagosian belief they are non-Asian ‘Whites’ often make slant eyes to make fun of other Asians. The case was targeted to Koreans: http://kotaku.com/5682324/japanese-game-and-music-idol-called-out-for-racism

    Any person who gets the “Asian flush” from drinking (i.e., red, blotchy face, and probably becomes drowsy) almost certainly has Asiatic ancestors from the Chinese mainland, according to this study: “Refined Geographic Distribution of the Oriental ALDH2*504Lys (nee 487Lys) Variant”
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2846302/?tool=pmcentrez

    I personally know many Chinese, Koreans and Japanese, and Asians of other ethnicities, with this trait, so it ‘s pretty safe to say they all have shared ancestry, no matter what is said or believed by nationalists, racists, or other East Asians with some form of self-hate or denial in their psyche. And, of course, this is only one gene among many that is shared across East Asians, the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. Genetic studies have revealed and will reveal many others.
