Asians looking like "Asians"

Dear Hollywood, get a clue

hentaicutie asked: This is a question that I've been pondering for a while, why is it that Indians (im not btw) not really recognized as being Asian?

The way I’ve had it explained to me (by a white girl) is this

"You guys don’t look alike, you don’t have the same cultures, or the same religions, you don’t even talk alike"

and I was like “um, actually there’s a lot in common, especially when you consider the rise of Buddhism.”

and she was like “but whatever you don’t look alike”

And I was like “Well Filipinos look different from like…Chinese people”

to which she said, “oh, well, I don’t know, I guess they do, but they’re asian”

And then I was like “what other thing would you call them? They’re on the continent of Asia”

and she was like, “dude, Canadians are on the same continent as Americans and I wouldn’t call myself Canadian”

And I was thinking “noooo but they call themselves American and also that would be like me calling myself Indian”

so TLDR; short answer: because white ppl are fucked up in the head when it comes to race

I would say yes. 

YES. 

(and I mean, to bring up rob schneider: it’s yellow face because he donned the yellowface make up and because he passes as white.)
