She has my voice and her accent is very similar to mine.
She has a face? Whoa. I'll have to look for that next time.

Yeah, I just LOVE the accent.

Anyway it's not true because we see you don't like them "Some are cute" tsss
Asians seem to age much faster in their homeland than her in America. I think it is due to the topical sun and their thin skin. Native Americans are of Asian descent. Look at old pictures of the Apaches in the Southwest. Geronimo looked to be 95 when he was 40. I was a Marine in Japan, Philippines, and Korea. I would tend to think that the economics at the time also led them to age prematurely. I was in my 20's and a women in their 30's looked old to me so that could also lead to my thinking. In ending I think Asians are without a doubt the most beautiful women in the world both inside and out. After you go Asian you never go back. I ended up marrying an Italian.......

Treating Asian Skin Requires a Delicate Balance Between Clearing the Condition, Preserving Pigmentation

"The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that the Asian-American population will total 40 million people by 2050. While as a whole this group is characterized by very dark hair and dark eyes, there is much diversity in Asian skin tones from very light, pale skin to light or dark brown skin"

Maybe you do not realize it, but a significant percentage of us have very pale skin (pink based) that is paler than the average Caucasian. More have a yellow base with pale to medium tones. Then there are darker Asians. Secondly there are so many different types of Asians you cannot lump it all in one group.

You did not say "most" have darker skin. You pretty much lumped Asians with Mexicans and said "both have dark skin".
You should really make an attempt to understand the world around you before making implications that other people are ignorant.


I fully realize the variation in skin tones among Asians and many other races. Your problem is you are being sensitive over not much of anything.

I'll say it again, most Asians have darker skin tones. Because someone doesn't make a disclaimer regarding the variations in darkness doesn't mean they are ignorant.

My statement regarding darker skin tones means just that. I used this as an example. Nonetheless, my point isn't about darkness but the actual colour. Many Indians (from the Indian subcontinent) have skin as dark as some of the sub-saharan Africans. However, they have a slightly different colour. There are two different types of skin pigmentation. One is referred to as red, which is only common among Europeans, and another which produced a brown colour or black colour, or a combination of both. The blend of red, brown and black makes the final skin colour. A classic example is that reddish skin tone many redheads have. People from the countries around the Baltic Sea and into Belarus and Russia tend to have a varying mix of red and brown. Thing of the "golden" tan typical of many blonds. I'm of Russian descent and I have that goldish skin tone when I tan. That is the result of both pigments. Black doesn't mean the person is black, however, this colour is dominant among many sub-saharan populations. Other populations tend to have a mix of brown and black with very little or no red. Asians have very little or no red. Pink is the result of low levels of any pigment which allows light to reflect from vascularization under the skin.

Of course there are exceptions in every population. I'm not going to go into into mentioning every little detail about everything I know about Asians because someone might be a little sensitive over it.

Do you understand now?

Much of Asia is temperate. Japan and Mongolia are at the same latitudes as California and Oregon.

Living in the tropics certainly has an impact. A good example is the Polynesian women. They are fairly good looking when young but the sun destroys their skin by the time they are 40. In the case of Asia, a lot of people have to do hard labour outdoors. Mongolians live at higher elevations where the UV factor is fairly high. Asians in the US tend to work indoors. It makes a big difference.

Quality of life plays a role too. Going back to Russians and Ukrainians, compare the younger women who have a relatively easy indoor life to that of their babushki who often spent quite a bit of time outside taking care of the field of cabbage and feeding the chickens. The current generation of Russian women are going to look a lot better in their 50s than their grandmothers.

First off, using the term 'Asian' is EXTREMELY relative. Asian refers to Indians in the UK. Just saying, there is not set term for 'Asian'.

Well, uh, India is in Asia.

India has ethnic groups of Asiatic and Indo-European origin.
