    How is it racist to find blue eyes attractive? In Korea people prefer pale skin and bigger eyes despite the fact most people have small eyes and use skin whitening creams. In India they prefer colored eyes, so what? It’s simply a different standard of beauty. In america we consider the all american woman to be blonde, tan, big boobed with a slim waist but how many natural blondes do we really got and how many women are naturally tanned? Most people bake in the sun to get that look. Every country has their standard of beauty. Damn it’s like appreciating white beauty has become racist. Unbelievable.
