But somehow, it's become "common knowledge" that asians "all look the same".

    ( now if we said that about black people, we'd be racist... ~_~; )

    I'm an American living in Japan and today while I was eating lunch, the teacher sitting across from me asked me this question:

    "When you see other foreigners on the street, can you tell the difference?"

    I asked him to elaborate... "well, to Japanese, all foreigners look the same."

    All of the other teachers near us agreed.

    ARGH! Is there something wrong with our eyes? Or just our brains?

    I'm fairly certain that if we can all pass eye exams seeing the same letters, colors, numbers and dots... we're not seeing radically different things when we look at each other.
    well i dont think it'd be racist think like that...even to me "born and rised" in mixed family when i was little i coundnt find the diference in my black relatives nigther in my white relatives too, funny thing is, i have a few asian friends and one of them from China cames to Portugal for a visit for first time and he stayed at my place, when i said i'd pick him from the airport he asked me to use a t-shirt or a paper with his name on it because he said we all look the same to them... that was the oddest thing that someone said to me, well yes i felt offended but only because im very different from black and white ppl but oh well thats life...

    Dude, most situations in which somethin' like that is said is usually do ta inexperience and that was my point. Most ppl, american or not, aren' usually exposed enough ta other races so that there eyes r able ta descern the differences in the facial features of a peticular race. Nor r they typically trained ta b able ta descern those differences. Sure there r some ppl who say such things outta simple prejudice, but most say it outta simple inexperience. And it's not jus' americans that say such things, somethin' like this isn' an american exclusive; there r many other races in many other countries that say that 'bout others. They even say it 'bout americans.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    You know that everyone thinks us mixed kids look alike, LOL! There was a point in time when no one could tell the difference between me and my lil bro (who's like taller than me now, LOL). Then there's the triple threat of me and these two guys named Dre and Bry. EVERYONE in Minneapolis got us confused. I'd be walkin' down the street and someone would yell, "Bryan!! Come here!!" And I'd yell back, "I'm not that kid!" LOL.

    I don't know how thats possible, since we have all different kinds of hair, varying heights, and different accents in some areas.
