Papuans are or like Melanesians, who are totally different from Austronesians.

Many Pacific Islanders like Tongans, Samoans and Maori can be quite pale. A lot of S. Chinese are also quite tanned. The urban females who use whitening products don't really represent the natural tone. Check out pics of farmers in rural China.

But Filipinos do not look like Chinese, Koreans or Japanese. These 3 are very similar in looks that you wouldn't really be able to distinguish which one is Chinese, Japanese or Korean.

Many of them do but they might be mixed. Some Southern Chinese do look Austronesian though. I can often tell Japanese/Chinese/Korean apart.

You can ? Are you Chinese ? Because for us Filipinos we cannot tell apart. They all look the same to us.

Ones you saw are probably of Chinese ancestry. They do not represent the whole Philippines. Philippines is not a Chinese country. We have some Chinese because they emigrated to the Philippines but they are just like another ethnic group.

Yes, well my ancestors were mostly from China. By nationality I'm Australia, Singaporean by birth. I'm obviously very familiar with how Chinese people, especially S. Chinese, look, both here and throughout Asia. While I haven't been to South Korea or Japan, I've met many Japanese and Koreans here and see them all over the place. I can sometimes tell before they start talking (Japanese are easier to spot), sometimes not. Sometimes I find it easier to tell S. Chinese like Cantonese from N. Chinese than N.Chinese from Koreans. We get a lot of Vietnamese, Indonesians, Malaysians, some Filipinos, and sometimes can't tell Vietnamese from S. Chinese (about as accurately as Chinese/Japanese), and even Austronesian Indonesian/Malaysian from Chinese, especially if the Chinese are quite tanned. I think many of the Indonesians here are at least part Chinese though. I don't see enough Filipinos to really get a good idea of their general look.

Not true...the 'Thai' ethnic group is actually quite diverse...original Dai don't really look like Khmer, most Khmer are noticeably darker. Isan/lowland Lao look somewhat Khmer, while in southern Thailand you have more Malay looks. Northern Thai are lighter.

I live in San Francisco which has a huge Chinese population. I NEVER see Chinese people here with skin as Brown as these Filipina women for example.



The only types of Asians here in California who are that dark are either Filipinos, Indians, or Cambodians.

If most Filipinos were light skin, The Philippines would be considered part of the Yellow Chino race, but it not. The darkness of Filipinos, would explain why many people consider Filipinos to be racially closer to Pacific Islanders than to Japanese and Chinese people.
Go f urself...the 2nd woman is half black half khmer
Mixed People from my hometown(Los Angeles))

First of all people make the mistake of thinking filipinos are a homogeneous group...we are not
we are basically hundreds of ethnicities who were forced to become one country by the spanish

how would you see this rural filipina from antique, western visayas???
