Multipass Travel Agency: Asia Travel | Ads of the World

I've heard a bunch of politically correct idiots up in arms about it, but I see nothing racist about it. Do asians not have slanted eyes?

Asia is a big place and there are many different ethnicities. People in Turkey look quite different to people in China for example.

1. Yes.

2. Do you erally think that Asian people have any more trouble seeing than you do, or that their vision is distorted the way yours is when you pull your eyes like that?

If you have to ask if this advertisment is racist, than i think you know the answer to that question.

I really wouldn't care if Asians started making their eyes look like Europeans. Racism is the belief that once race is superior to another. I don't think this meets that standard.
