Do they realise that they're aren't passing as white and that we're actually laughing at them?
they are passing for object of desire and it works
it is not a racial copycat per se since they are still very much non-assimilation
not whiteness as a object of desire in itself but whites look nicer
>Asians with their hair dyed brown or blonde
STOP IT RIGHT NOW
>Anime girls tend to have Asian face
Asians have tiny slanty eyes
Whites have big round eyes
LOTR Orcs appearances were based off of East Asians
>All orcs are often described as "slant-eyed"
>In one of his letters, Tolkien described Orcs as "...squat, broad, flat-nosed, sallow-skinned, with wide mouths and slant eyes; in fact degraded and repulsive versions of the (to Europeans) least lovely Mongol-types."
Not common in Japan, but some women do plastic surgery to be more cute (not be white).
I think being white and being cute are different things. Being cute is more like being a cat.
