Hi everybody
When I was a little girl,I met a foreigner in a tea garden by accident for the first time.I feel very surprised and curious at the sight of the noses of him.so long,it frightened me at that time.Now,I almost saw the foreigners in the street every day.But why are the noses of the foreigners so long?

Big nose.
The teenagers girls doesn't like boys with big nose.
They like boys with female pattern.
When they start to be women, like at 28 years old, they are attracted by men with raws faces and big noses.
They don't want delicate paterns any more. Then big nose harvest a lot of this stupid species (women).

Thanks to all your comments here, however, scientifically speaking, according to the Scientist who did research on mapping the human genetic structure: For Craig Venter, one of the key figures behind the unravelling of the human genome, 'The Human Genome Project shows there is no such thing as race' Click here to read more about Craig Venter: [en.wikipedia.org]

90% of what is in a chinese (asian), white (caucasian), or black (african or african american) person's body is the same. This means we are all the same. The 10% that makes us different is due to environment as one person here has already commented on, too. Africans, for example have darker skin due to the fact they mostly lived closer to the equator, which had much more direct sunlight than caucasian or asian, who lived further away from the sun's harmful rays. African and Caucasian noses are larger than asians due to the fact they needed more oxygen during work or exercising to cool their body temperatures down during strenous stress too. Asians (chinese)on the other hand, developed smaller eyes and bodies due to the fact of the harsh and strong winds that sometimes ravished their environments. Naturally, to avoid dust particles and trash there eyes became smaller over time to protect them from the harsh winters and strong winds there. So, I hope this has answered and clarified for all here this is the reason why we have some "differences" in body parts or bone structure? But again, referring to science, we are all 90% the same, get it?

Thank you for the interesting explanation, it seems ok to me. But, the question is according to the theory we can predict that the eyes of Asian people are going to get smaller and smaller? The noses of Caucasian are going to get bigger and bigger? So, maybe in 1000 years later, the Asian eyes will look like two beans on the face and the noses of Caucasian will look like dog's. Very interesting indeed -- One is going to become veggie, and the other animalhot smiley

Savannah:

Interesting, your name is the same as my grandmother, does that make you an american, haha? I think not, however, the actual scientific facts are human beings (caucasians, blacks, and asians) will eventually develop along with their environments. Such as, should a child be born on the moon, unless he is born on earth, as the generations go by, his muscles will develop to adapt to weight conditions on the moon, so, your basic premise in what you said is 100% correct! Who knows, if a chinese were born in Africa, after several generations his skin would also become darker too, that's science facts for you, imagine a chinese turning black, haha! What a wonderful possibility, right?

MMMMMMM, skin is nothing to do with anything. I am not a racist. But, the most dreadful is to have a black heart or discrimination in heart. We are the world, and the world is beautiful because of the diversities.hot smiley

Tchapm3,
Each individual is different in thinking and doing, so please don't label any race just based on certain behavior you think they might have. Stereotype is not a fair thinking; it is easy to conclude, but not accurate. Have an open mind hot smiley

Savannah, having an open mind, as an american means, "I am available to anyone, regardless of color, if they are a human being, understand?" But the use of the phrase (which in a way reveals your true origins too), "Chinese prefer chinese, whites prefer whites, blacks prefer blacks, is in itself a racist statement!" Rather one should say, "I prefer the human race!" In Adolf Hitler's times the germans said, "Germans prefer germans, too!" Which as we all know, historically meant, the total eradication of all others (ethnic groups, Jews, and Gypsies), except for the german people. To make it more personal, how would you like it if a white american told you, "Whites prefer whites (which is a hidden agenda for example and not asians)?" If you are being honest here, and I hope you are, any rational human being would regard that as an insult to their own ethnic origins if they were not born white, get it? I love Green Bay too but I am a "Saints Fan, too, haha!"

Interestingly, Indonesians used to call the proboscis monkey "Orang Belanda" which means "Dutch people."

LoL, I am not Chinese, I have never been to China hot smiley I wish I would though, someday). You must admit that you are very discriminated in mind and your thinking doesn't make it sound better. I would rather you just to be simple and logical - respect all the races, white or black, yellow or green. And yes, it means love all of living things - even plants, grasses, lol, but not weed hot smiley

First of all, I never said you were chinese, did I? There is significant evidence though that you are of asian origins. When I was a university student, a sociology professor once voiced this very same questions (though not about noses...haha) question to asian americans in my class, guess what? There response was always the same as yours, "avoid the issue, or, just ask to can they have a different topic of discussion, isn't that amazing?" What was the exact question he posed? "Why do you think we have racial discrimination in the usa?" The asian americans always answered the way you did!" Haha, so what else is new? And also, why is it the asian americans always say, "I love the usa I was born here, however, they never say, "I love Americans (inference is I love certain americans and not others)!" (LOL)

Secondarily, why are there so many chinatowns, Little Saigons, Little Seoul, Little Tokyos all over the usa? Please do not tell me it's because asian americans wish to be assimilated into american society either! It's because they wish to separate themselves from the rest of america and americans not of their ethnic group too. They say it's so they can practice their beliefs and their customs too. But the real truth is it's so they can maintain their racism against the rest of the ethnic groups in the usa...(lol). Don't you know that the rest of the ethnic groups in the usa know the real reasons asian americans separate themselves from :-) Showing yourself friendly and open to all possibilites is the true proof of your american values! Save the animals and the plants, but, save your fellow man as an equal first!

For you, my friend, all the Asian people is all the same -- same thinking, same doing mmmmmm? That is definitely very interesting. How about other races in the world, do you have other stereotype for each of them too? So Asian = A, Eu = B, African = C, Australia = D etc. If the human study is so easy, then everyone can get a doctor degree on it. As for your professor, don't you know that the research result can be varied based on the data? or the time period or some circumstances? When a professor said Yes, then the students must follow? Do you know how many doctors mistreated patients every year? Some of them are professors in medical school?
Time changes, culture changes,the world is getting mixed in value as years go by. I don't label people, I respect each individual, no matter the person is from America, Australia, or Asia.
I am kind of tired of this topic, but I believe you understand that what my viewpoint is right? We can make a better world if people have more tolerance - respect other people more, then war, or conflict can be decreased. Have peacesmileys with beer

Thanks Again Savannah, I think the problem with most asian americans is that the majority of you accept only the parts of the constitution you want to accept, case being, you accept life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but the parts of the constitution you side step or avoid all together are "equality!" We are all equal under God! So, if we are all equal under God, why do you separate yourselves from the rest of us by living in your own separate communities? That is definitely, not the american way!thumbs down

And by the way, I do understand your viewpoint! If I am not wrong in what you are saying, and I could be wrong, I am not perfect (neither are you). You believe in the "separate but equal doctrine" (espoused during the "Jim Crow Time Period in the USA, during the early 1950 - 1965." According to this doctrine, every person in the usa was equal and we were separate, is that right? If I am not historically inaccurate, in de jure (a legal term meaning "in the law") all americans in the usa were equal, but in facto (another legal term meaning "actual practice), they were not equal. Whites were equal but the non-whites here were not given the same opportunities for advanacement, education, or promotions, too. It was only due to "civil rights leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King and others that our society discarded that doctrine. The end result of that was that most of you asian americans were also allowed the reap the harvest in terms of jobs, opportunities, education and promotions that you now enjoy today. Of course, you have never been made aware of this since the vast majority of you reap the benefits of that but do not fully understand how you got it. Much blood was shed by blacks and hispanics to give you the privileges and benefits you now possess. Then you come to our country and separate yourself from most of us, the arrogance of the asian americans here never fails to amaze me...read some american history, learn what you are talking about, before you try to tell the rest of non-white america that you are separate but equal! From knowledge comes understanding, from understandng comes respect my asian amerian sister, get it? You cannot respect anyone until you have walked in their shoes, eaten at their table, seen what they have seen, alright? Knowlege is power, to bury your head in the sand as an ostrich in your separate but equal communities, is the height of hypocrisy and ignorance! And do I hate asian americans? The answer is no, in fact, I have helped many of them to immigrate to the usa and still support them politically in the usa whenever I can, for you see, the truth is I want them to learn how to respect others in the right way not the way they like!

Yes, also, as my sociology professor said to the rest of the class at the end of the semester,most asian americans in the class never came back to tell him how much they liked his class...lol..., he said, "I never really expected them to come back and say "thanks, prof" for opening my mind up to the reality of racism from our group!" Then the professor told us an interesting story (he was also a vietnamese veteran too). He said, "In vietnam a vietanamese soldier, who fought with the americans not against them, once saved his life. Later, after the war was over, the vietnamese soldier needed his help to emigrate to the usa. He, of course, did so. Then he took the man's wife to a local grocery chain store and tried to get her a job as a meat cutter. The manager of the meat department refused to give it to her since he racially hate them (vietnamese). So, the Professor said she started crying and saying, "why do they hate me so much, I never did anything to hurt them?" The Professor was touched, so, he went above that manager's head directly to the store manager and got her the job. She was so happy but later, since she was there a few years, he asked her, "hey, I have a black friend who needs a job working in your department, can you talk to your manager to help him?" Guess what she replied? "No, I do not like these people! The professor was so shocked, "After all he had done for her and helped her to overcome racism from other whites, she had the nerve to show him that she was racist against blacks!" Now, isn't that amazing? lol
