[Originally Posted by Fraggle Rocker Chinese, Japanese and Korean people have told me that they can tell each other apart just by facial appearance, about 90% of the time.] There doesn't have to BE any "scientific basis" for it. The long history of those three countries has included many wars, so people from all three countries have a reason for wanting to favor people from their own country and to hate almost anyone from the other two countries. This national hatred is so fierce among some individuals that that they've even lumped everyone from the other two countries into a separate "race", whose sole purpose is to make it easier to hate them as inferior beings. This is bigotry, which as I've said many times, is impossible without the underlying myth of two or more "races" with which to separate people from one another. If you can't separate people into different races, which I cannot do, then you can't hate others because of a difference in the race. It's really that simple. Race is a myth and because of that, I can never be a bigot.
