i'm not trying to be racist in fact i love the asian people and their culture. heck alot of people even say my eyes look asian since i have small eyes but i'm white. i know alot of people the vietnamese and chinese are different but i kind of see simple things about 'em like some of the names and their culture,etc.

thanks Mycernius
i just always heard you can tell the japanese and chinese apart from their eyes. since the japanese have sideways eyes and the chinese have straight eyes.

I wonder where you've got such an idea...
You cannot identify whether the person is Japanese or Chinese just because of the shape of eyes. (Also wonder what are sideways/straight eyes - but no, no need to explain the details, as I don't think I'll be happy to know the answer.)
:sick:

I don't know where you picked that little gem up from, but it is false.

I think you can't distinguish them from the eyes ,but the personality and the way they do things are quite different. I can distinguish them usually at the first sight.

Vietnamese has bigger eyes while Chinese has smaller eyes.

I am not quite sure, but I have been told you can also tell Chinese and Vietnamese apart by asking them what nationality they are.
