I don’t think this is racism, exactly. This is just ignorance. You might as well ask why black people have darker skin. That wouldn’t be racist either, would it? Clearly by “funny” she means “different” and not “amusing”. Bloody gwailos. They’re all the same.
This is truly a Lamebook philosophical symposium in the making. Let’s diagram: Four racist f*cks who can’t spell–make that, HORRIFICALLY unfunny racists who can’t spell–gather around an online camp fire to discuss the genetic facial traits of Southeast-Asian indigenous people. They reach no conclusion, but manage to offend the entire civilized humanity while they retardedly fumble along for an answer. Nice work, @Christine, @John, @David, @Stuart.
The area around what is now mainland China used to be a desert many millenia ago. The “funny eye” as you so intellectually fucking put it Christine, is a result of evolution and natural selection where those who were able to maintain vision in hostile weather conditions (i.e. sandstorms, dry environments and lots of sun) had a better chance of surviving and thereby passing on their genes to fertile offspring. The uniquely (and sexy) shaped eye, developed over time.
When I get really bored I sit around and ponder the great mysteries of life too. Why “Japs and Chineese (wow appalling) have funny eyes” is one of my favorite topics. Followed by “Why do some Irish people have red hair?” and “Why are black people black?” and my all time favorite “Why is my mother blonde and I’m not?” It really helps pass the time in my totally lame life, you know? Just sit and wonder about stupid, pointless physical products of human evolution….
