Interesting chart, but it's too generalised and unspecific.

Small eyes don't always equate epicanthal folds and slants - It seems like the chart is basing small eyes on "Asian" eyes, as it had them tagged on Eastern Asia and Native America. And nearly every European country in that chart is under "medium to large" eyes.

Is there a truth to this or is it a stereotype?
Well, to answer your question, I don't believe it is true nor is it a stereotype but rather an opinion from your observations and experiences. The evolution of human beings is due to migration and environmental changes which occurred over many millennia which affected everything about their anatomical differences, including the shape and size of their eyes.

In the skull, the nose area, eye orbits, and brow ridges typically show significant racial differences.

As populations occupied new environments, beneficial mutations were preserved because they aided survival. Diverging changes in population traits accumulated, over time resulting in the different human races.

There is only one race - the human race. I think it's perfectly clear for everybody else but Anglos. An African is not of another race compared to me, but the same.

Some Truth, Slavic people tend to hace epicanthic eyefolds. That is why their eyes may seem to be smaller than other euros. There are many Africans with Epicanthic eyefolds like the San Bushmen and many Yoruba people have it. Asians tend to have epicanthic eyefolds the most especially Mongoloids.

Race is reality we as Humans are very diverse and share different traits due to mutation Idc what anybody says. We are all Homo Sapiens that being said some of us have may have different Hominids in our bloodlines. For example, all non Africans are part Neanderthal according to some studies. I admire the diversity among the Human race and I hope it stays that way.
