Why do Asian people get called "look alikes" or "same" when....?

it applies to white people as well.

I mean go to Europe. I'm pretty sure you couldn't tell an Italian from an English from an Spanish from a French person unless they talk.

    I agree 99%. When I started at my current job, there were 6 white girls who all had the same-length brown hair and brown eyes. It took me FOREVER to get their names right. It was as though HR hired the a group of clones. The other 1% are for the times when there are blonds thrown into the mix-- that helps unless all of them are blond.

    Perhaps the ones that complain have a recessive gene complex? They know Asians genes are dominant and are very strong, hence so many have the same genetic features. Subconsciously they may feel threatened by the sheer numbers of them.

    Every race or group of people experiences this.

    It happens because people are not mature enough to look at a persons individuality.

    the ppl who say asians are look alike probably take the stereotype of "chinese is the only one verify asian" to be judge how whole asia continent look like? huh. actually, I can tell you that asians are the most diverse look. I'm biracial south east asian ( thai) part swedish. 1000 years till now thailand, Burma and indonesia have got so many invaders from over the world. we got ppl who have dutch, purtuguese, east indian, Arabs, Iranian, native black in papau new guinea, chinese, japanese kept coming to south east asia. I been stayed in thailand I have seen so many of native ppl who very much like mexican. large eyes, double eyelids, curl hair, narrow face and olive or tan skin are very normal to see among the predestrains. thai ppl prefer east asian-looking of chinese or japanese than their native ppl with large eyes.....

    if u ever visited thailand most of main characters tend to be the chinese born in thailand or biracial thai-chinese, while the commercial presenters and the model on the fashion megacine tend to be ppl the biracial caucasian like east indian, arab, europeans etc. in thai culture we find chinese ppl look better than the ppl with sharp facial features like the native thai or biracial caucasian or biracial east indian or arab.

    that's because east asian ppl have got an adorable harmless cute face while the ppl with sharp features like native thai with caucasian decent.

    here I will show you a picture of how diverse it is in thailand.

    Billions of Asians and they only have slight differences in facial appearances, and they're all the same size! Same skin color! Same hair color! Same Eye color! Europeans have many different shades of white skins and different everything! eg height, eyes, skin, strucural both face and body, fat and skinny, the list goes onnn...
