I don’t know who decided and what the correct format should be, but the format of contests looks western. Don’t they put on dresses and swimming suits? The way they put on make-up is western.I don't see why the beauty contest being Western in origin should have anything to do with looking Western for it.
I don't’ think it has anything to do with patronizing or self-victimizing. When you see an Asian guy wearing a business suit with a tie, do you see it patronizing or self-victimzing? It appears the western fashion became the format of what people put on in the international community. I don’t necessary think it is the right way, but I need to put on a business suit and a tie for a job interview.If the beauty contests we had in the West were Eastern in origin I don't think we'd be trying to look Asian for them. When Westerns say Asians are trying to look Western, it sounds downright patronizing. And when Asians do it it sounds downright self victimizing and Pan-Asian and racist towards Westerners.
They might not necessarily be treated better, but Japanese people normally regard more highly of Caucasian looking foreigners than other foreigners.I do not think that Caucasian people are treated better in Japan. Just look at all the threads in this forum about racism in Japan.
He might be or might not be racist toward white people. But, if he has personal experience of being treated unfairly due to his looks, it might be inappropriate to call him ﾂ“brainwashed.ﾂ” If we have never been in his shoes, it might be too harsh to judge him victimizing himself.Euro_Hapa, I think YOU are racist towards white people. And from your name, you consider yourself Eurasian, and choose to use the sort of American terminology that has more "fight whitey" implications. You feel that the only way to be Eurasian is to be some sort of mixed blood or half, and act like a white hating Asian on sites like modelminority and yellowworld.com. When there are Central Asians who have not one bit of your silly brainwashing.
Gee, I would much rather be around some half Slavic Half Mongol Neo-Nazi from Russia than some Asian American brainwashed "Hapa" who thinks white people are so oppressive in an age of political correctness and that Japanese people have an inferiority complex and is offended by any similarities between Japanese people and Westerners. Stop victimizing yourselves and stop demonizing us.
