Lighter-Skinned Minorities Are More Likely to Support Republicans

Spencer Piston, Washington Post, September 17, 2014

Which Latinos and Asian Americans might be most susceptible to Republican appeals? {snip}

Consistent with this line of thinking, the relationship between skin color and partisan preferences among Latinos and Asian Americans is illustrated below. I begin by analyzing a nationally representative sample of Latino citizens interviewed as part of 2012 American National Election Studies (ANES). The following plots show predicted values of party identification and predicted probabilities of voting for Democratic candidates in 2012. These are based on analyses that also account for education, age, gender, income, and whether people were born in the United States.

Hispanics

The results show that lighter-skinned Latinos are more likely than darker-skinned Latinos to identify as Republican and to vote for Republicans. For example, in the 2012 election for Senate, the darkest-skinned Latinos are estimated to have a 98 percent chance of voting for the Democrat, whereas the lightest-skinned Latinos are estimated to have a 43 percent chance.

Unfortunately, the ANES has too few Asian Americans to run a comparable analysis. Moreover, skin color was measured by the interviewer, perhaps imperfectly. It is possible that an interviewer’s estimate of a respondent’s skin color is influenced by the interviewer’s perceptions of the respondent’s political views–if, for example, the interviewer holds a stereotype that Obama supporters are dark-skinned.

To address these limitations, I examine an additional dataset: the recently released 2008 Collaborative Multi-racial Post-election Survey (CMPS). This survey conducted interviews with a large number of Asian-American registered voters, including interviews in Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean and Vietnamese. Furthermore, the measure of skin tone is obtained through self-reporting, mitigating concerns about interviewer biases.

The graphs below reveal a pattern for Asian Americans that is similar to that of Latinos, albeit somewhat attenuated: light-skinned Asian Americans are more likely than dark-skinned Asian Americans to identify as Republican and vote for Republicans if they are lighter-skinned. The one exception is the relationship between skin tone and voting Democrat for Senate in 2008, which does not reach conventional standards of statistical significance.

Asian

 

The self-reported measure of skin tone is undoubtedly imperfect as well. Still, it is striking that across two different ethnic groups, two national datasets, and two different modes of measuring skin tone, lighter-skinned individuals are more likely than dark-skinned individuals to prefer Republicans.

  • However, notice in all of the best fit data lines and curves, except for the one rightmost point in the fourth Latino graph (“Dem vote in 2012 Senate elections”), they are all above the 50% line, which means more Democrat than Republican.

      Something the Retardlican Party never considers when cheerleading for Amnesty.

      • Mary

        Yes. But they seem to believe it’s only because they haven’t pandered enough. It’s not working, so they’ll just double down.

        • Franklin_Ryckaert

          Indeed, the proverbial definition of insanity.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        Retardlicans… now that’s a new one. Pretty good, too. But not if your’re talking about real Republcans like Joe McCarthy, Jesse Helms or Helen Chenoweth.

        Here’s a new one for you… G.O.P. — Gutless Old Party.

  • Zolicon

    Yeah and if those People would start listening to Me they would not support the REPUBLICANS or The DEMOCRATS.

    • propagandaoftruth

      Well…basically the Repugnant Party is the White party, which is horrifying, and the Demoncrats are the Black and Black worshipping party, basically.

      So, crème to top, mud to bottom. The dems are the bottom feeders for sure, the pugs shamefully neutered and compromised.

      • Zolicon

        To Me both Parties are Blood sucking Bottom Feeding Leeches.

      • Puggg

        I personally resent that last remark.

        I hereby sentence you to a 24 hour TV marathon of watching The View. You must stay awake. If you fall asleep, remember I’m pretty good with the baton. And I don’t mean the marching band kind of baton.

        • Zolicon

          Oh well and personally I would rather that You sentence Me to 24 years in Hell than 24 hours of watching the View.

        • propagandaoftruth

          I’d rather saw my own head off while screaming “Allahu Akbar!”

          Pugg. Sorry man…

        • I think I would just take the beating instead.

  • M.

    An obvious explanation is being glossed over here:

    1. People who are more self-reliant need a smaller safety net, i.e. less state, which makes them more likely to vote Republican, as they contribute more than they benefit from a welfare state;

    2. Northeast Asians tend to be more self-reliant than Southeast Asians, as the formers come from richer more industrious countries than the latters; European Latinos also do better in Latin America than Indio-mestizos;

    3. Northeast Asians are fairer-skinned that Southeast Asians; European Latinos are fairer-skinned than other Latinos.

    Ergo Northeast Asians and European Latinos are more likely to vote Republican, ergo fairer-skinned Asians and Latinos are more likely to vote Republican.

    • Sick of it

      The reason is racial – Those with more white blood think more like white people.

      • M.

        This might apply to fairer Latinos. But I don’t think Northeast Asians have any more white blood (by which I’m guessing you mean “European ancestry) than do Southeast Asians or Indian Subcontinentals.

        • Franklin_Ryckaert

          Higher IQ correlates with lighter skin color because a colder climate selected both for higher intelligence and more depigmentation.

          • M.

            Well, there you go. Another reason why Northeast Asians tend to be more self-reliant than the Southeast Asians, and European Latinos than the “less” European Latinos.

      • benvad

        Then explain the behavior of the mulattos, who are on the forefront of attacking the white establishment?

        • Sick of it

          #1 Blacks are the least like us out of all of the races
          #2 They’ve been told they’re black, and only black, since the end of the Civil War…so they identify with blacks

          • benvad

            They’re enemies regardless of the hue. One drop rule by my reckoning.

          • John R

            The only thing worse than a full Negro, is half of one. The current occupant of the White House should prove that. Ditto for Eric Holder.

    “The idea is that upon experiencing discrimination, Asian Americans decide to ally themselves with minority constituencies that also experience discrimination”

    Every article in the mainstream press has to contain at the very minimum at least one completely insane idea, if not the whole article based on it. This article just shows that America needs a diversity of white and light skinned people, haha.

  • Mary

    And blacks of any skin tone are unlikely to vote Republican.

    • Katherine McChesney

      Google Black Republican Party.

      • IstvanIN

        She has a web site. Who knew?

  • D.B. Cooper

    Lighter skinned often means one white parent to begin with. The diversicrats are so caught up on white racism, that they totally overlook how Asians, Hindus, and Latinos hate blacks more than white people do. White people, after all, are the only ones dumb enough to let blacks into their countries.

  • Bossman

    So how come the Jews are not voting Republican in any great numbers? These kind of statistics don’t mean much. Lighter-skinned Hispanics may be Cubans who’ve traditionally voted Republican.

    • As you probably know, there are white Hispanics. An example is a Criollo, and we have a regular here called “TxCriollo.”

      Re Jews: Jewish voters are big into doctrinaire liberalism-egalitarianism, and they get more of that from the Democrat Party than the Republican Party. In my lifetime, the high water mark for a Republican Presidential candidate with the Jewish vote was Reagan in 1980, getting 40% of it, but that means Carter and others combined got 60%, which is still a losing margin. As much as the Republicans portrayed Obama as anti-Israel, 68% of Jewish voters in 2012 still voted Obama, although that was down from 83% in 2008. Either Jewish voters don’t believe that Obama is anti-Israel, or they don’t care that much about Israel.

      The only time a Republican Presidential candidate since WWII has gotten a majority of the Jewish vote was Eisenhower both times he ran, and for every obvious reasons.

      • TL2014

        They don’t care that much about Israel, mostly.

        • adplatt126

          False.

        • bilderbuster

          HA!
          Obama’s increased ALL the tons of freebies Israel loots from US taxpayers and destroyed Libya and has been in the process of destroying Syria for the last 3 years.
          The only issue Obama’s been outdone on Israel is that Romney practically promised to destroy Iran in the last days of the election.

      • IstvanIN

        Eisenhower mass-murdered German soldiers after the surrender.

        • Franklin_Ryckaert

          This proves that the Jewish vote is more motivated by what they hate than by what they love.

        • bilderbuster

          If he had been tried for that or any of the horrible war crimes he was responsible for, the first thing that weasel would have claimed is that he was only following orders.

          • John R

            History is written by the victors.

            True, but not all victors write fairy tales.

            Moral relativism on your part

        • cjkcjk

          LOL! And I can’t stand Eisenhower

          • bilderbuster

            Eisenhower: He was Stalin’s General in the West against Germany and Europe and as President he integrated the military that the military and the American people opposed.
            He later enforced integration of schools on American Whites, Soviet style, at the point of a bayonet.

          • cjkcjk

            Not to mention he was a dummy. If Douglas MacArthur were head of the European Theatre, the war would have been over earlier and with far less casualties. Can’t stand that stupid SOB.
            Claiming he mass murdered German soldiers is a new one which I find not credible.

          • bilderbuster

            Oh it’s credible and it is fact!
            1.5 million German soldiers died after the war, most from starvation.
            Google “Other Loses” or “The Morgenthau Plan” or Pat Buchanan’s book “The Unnecessary War” about the millions of Germans forced from their lands where another 2 million died.
            All of this AFTER the war supposedly ended.
            The Allies also turned over millions of anti-communists as well as Russian POWs to the NKVD who tortured, executed or sent them to the Gulags.

      • adplatt126

        Obama isn’t anti-Israel. Obama is slightly, albeit inconsequentially less of a slave to Israel and its lobbies, than are Republican candidates. He’s not anti-Israel by any stretch. And when it comes to actual policy, rather than general sentiment or ineffectual ideology, he’s equivalent to Republicans. Jewish voters are right. It doesn’t matter which party is in power. The policies that matter to our overlords, remain the same no matter what.

        • I think what Republicans mean when they claim that Obama is “anti-Israel” is that he’s not pro-Likkud. Obama and American liberal Democrats are pro-Israel in the sense that they are pro-Labor (i.e. the Israeli Labor Party). Republicans generally match well with the Likkud faction.

          Then again, you have knuckledragging retrogrades like me who think that American politics should be about American interests and the well being of white Americans, not just lining up some plush spot on the Israeli political spectrum. But who’s paying attention to me?

          • adplatt126

            I don’t think that’s what American foreign policy should be about at all. Our interests? Any nation, particularly a large, technologically sophisticated one, that sets its military up to be about the nation’s interests will be sadly disappointed by the parasites who crop up to use that military for their own interests, irrespective of the interests of the people who reside in that nation and especially abroad. This is an unintelligent primary purpose for a military because it won’t ever come to fruition on any level. The capitalists will merely buy up the printing presses to manipulate public opinion so that they align with their own interests. Hence, why American soldiers don’t at all serve America’s interests but the government and power structure’s. Moreover, any nation with significant or in our case, overwhelming military power, that runs around pursuing its own interests globally, without a severely limiting conception of justice or morality, is going to do so almost invariably parasitically and gravely immorally, as ours does. Our foreign policy should be very limited, and designated to situations where it is crystal clear what is right and what is wrong, or for the actual defense of the nation from direct or imminent threats. There are today very few of these around the globe. A bunch of rag-tag sand-******* roaming around the desert with AK’s hardly necessitates a declaration of war. Such situations in the world are actually quite rare and few, which is why our military should almost never be mobilized. I can’t even at the present, think of one war, America should have been involved in, in its 240 year history, except the Revolutionary one, and perhaps those associated with the conquest of the continent.

        They want to help the less fortunate and want to get back at “The Man”, you know the Ted Knight character in Caddy Shack.

        The underdog going after the white establishment to give them their just desserts. It’s really a sickness with jews, as Dennis Prager says Jews have a major problem, they don’t Preach what they Practice.

          One for themselves and anything goes with the Goyim.

    • bilderbuster

      The Cubans have always been RINO’s and only voted Republican because of the anti-Castro platform.
      Cubans abandoned that and showed their true colors when Obama came along and gave him their votes in 08′ & 2012.

      • It’s even easier than that.

        There’s a difference between the Cubans that came here in the 1960s and the Cubans coming here now. And that difference is racial. The 1960s Cubans looked like Desi Arnaz, today’s Cubans look like Yasiel Puig.

        • bilderbuster

          That was quite obvious to me as a teenager, who had read The Dispossessed Majority by Wilmont Robertson, only a year before I was to witness Miami being enriched by multiculturalism and diversity first hand during the Mariel Boatlift in 1980 (Miami was also graced with about 40,000 Haitians during the same period).
          Desi and Lucy’s children completely assimilated while if Yasiel Puig were to breed with a Lucille Ball look alike their children would never be assimilable and wouldn’t resemble the mother at all.
          To this day I’m amused that so many “Islanders” (especially criminals) who resemble Senor Puig are classified as White or Hispanic by the US government.

  • Luca

    Human beings are still in the process of evolving. Those races trading melanin for IQ will be be better off in the long run. The evidence is overwhelming.

    • John R

      I hope you are right. What is needed is the final death of liberal ideology. That has sadly been the predominate force in the West since at least the end of the Second World War.

  • White Mom in WDC

    Big deal. Of course lighter skin minorities want to support the used to be white party, but guess what, the Republicans are the biggest race traitors ever. Light skin minorities know what side their bread is buttered on, but when the poop hits the fan, they will stab Working Whitey in the back.

  • Steven Williams

    I don’t care of skin tone or if they are right-wingers like Dinesh D’Souza or Michelle Malkin. Minorities are a complete disdain to us white Americans and I strongly support a powerful deportation system to get them out of the USA.

    • Roger Noah

      Dream on.

    • Bossman

      Michelle Malkin is a Filipino-American who may be jealous of Hispanics because they can enter the USA easier than her kind. Dinesh D’Souza knows that 1 billion East Indians would do anything to get into the USA.

    • John R

      Yes, but use them while we can. I say, apply a race strategy: Unite all Americans, against a common enemy-The Negro. Most of our minority problems can be blamed on this one group. And there is a deep seated resentment against Negroes on the part of all races. In the end, disenfranchise them, and start colonizing them back to Africa. Then we can work on the other groups….

  • Augustus3709

    How do they measure skin tone, in lumens? Melanin? Or is this just a word of mouth sort of questionnaire format. “On a scale of 1-5 how dark would you say your skin is?”

    It’s an interesting point nonetheless. Do the lighter skinned non-Whites side with conservative politics because they believe they can better fit in with the Leitkultur, or is it because the lighter skin indicates more intelligent genetics which are more likely to be averse to far left wing lunacy?

    • Many blacks use a paper bag to determine what is light-skinned or dark-skinned.

      • Lord Sandwich

        That could have other valuable uses as well.

    • Skin Botwin

      I think that it’s a matter of relationship to the Red or Blue in terms of American political policy. If you are a “high yellow” minority that has experienced the brunt of the left as a person “fleeing the Dem plantation” right wingers wax poetically about, then you may find yourself more inclined to go “Right.” It’s a pseudo battered wife Vs. White knight dichotomy of sorts…

  • Maybe because we don’t mind light-complexioned foreigners, perhaps?

  • Samuel Hathaway

    A better explanation for the traditional Republican-voting habits of the Cubans and Vietnamese is their staunch anti-Communism, which traditionally, has motivated them to vote Republican since its hard-line stand as a party was seen as the best guarantor against Red tyranny.

    However, Cubans and Vietnamese vote less Republican these days, thanks to left-wing hate politics of diversity and deliberately pitting them against the white-voting majority

  • Samuel Hathaway

    this is a nice photo of Edith Gonzalez, born in Monterrey, México and one of the most popular actresses of “telenovelas.” Obviously Caucasian racially, possibly Republican if she were American?

  • Samuel Hathaway

    Presented here is Edith Gonzalez, from Monterrey, México, famous for her appearances in telenovelas. Strikingly Caucasian in appearance, her most famous role to date was in the telenovela, Salomé.

    • Bossman

      Yes, I’ve been able to sample some of that stuff right on my smart phone from Azteca 13 HD. When you watch Mexican TV, you see a lot of people like her who may or may not have some indigenous heritage. It is all a matter of shades and degrees of whiteness. In her case, I would say that she has a slight touch of the indigenous but it doesn’t matter.

  • Leon NJ

    Little off topic, but has anyone seen those adds on ABC for that upcoming show called, Black-ish? After seeing it for the millionth time, I realized that many of the blacks are very light skinned. Perhaps they want us to watch it and the only way is to have light skinned blacks so they won’t scare away the viewers.

    • Franklin_Ryckaert

      The same tactics were used in the case of Rosa Parks.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        Rosa Parks was a fellow traveler with the Communist Party U.S.A. She attended “workshops” at the Highlander Folk School, in Monteagle, Tennessee along with MLK. Don West, one of the founders of Highlander, was the district director of the Communist party in North Carolina

        • Franklin_Ryckaert

          I know. The socalled “spontaneous” Civil Rights Movement was in reality a well coordinated plot to overthrow White America by communist agitators, mostly of a “tribal” background. Same with the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa. Both movements created their own myth of the “Black Saint” : MLK in the US, Nelson Mandela in SA.
          Light skinned mulatto Rosa Parks was especially chosen for her role in order not to deter the wider white public from feeling sympathy with her. Everything was staged in this movement.

    • It seems like it’s going to be a show littered with Halfrican/mulatto race jokes. Just for that, I’m going to give it a chance, but I doubt it will last long. I happen to think that one of the sub rosa purposes of the show is to try to turn Obama’s approval ratings numbers around.

      • bilderbuster

        More likely to promote miscegenation and to make Mulatto’s acceptable.

    You can count me in a lighter-skinned Latino who has typically voted Republican. I’m a Puerto Rican of mostly European ancestry. My extended family trends Republican. I’ve gone from Democrat to Libertarian to Republican to Independent. I voted for McCain and Romney because I didn’t like Obama or the redistributionary welfare state the Democrats are trying to build. However I will be staying home from now on because I refuse to endorse this rotten government.

    • corvinus

      However I will be staying home from now on because I refuse to endorse this rotten government.

      My strategy is to vote in the GOP primaries, and then vote GOP in the general election for Congress, but NOT for the president, since the GOP presidential candidate always stinks.

      • My litmus test for a candidate is fiscal conservatism. God, how those government clowns waste money at every level! Some dimwits here in Colorado thought that state highway marking signs should be every 1/10 of a mile, rather than every mile. The result was purchase of a 900% increase in highway mile markers and a similar increase in upkeep, because being able to report a dead deer at mile marker 197.4 is so very much better than having to settle for mile marker 197.

  • That’s mostly pie in the sky.

    (1) You can build all the coalitions within the Republican Party on immigration you want; won’t matter if the leadership remains donor-driven hoes.

    (1-A) No racist rhetoric for a cause that’s fundamentally racial? You may not want to notice race, or you may want to put it aside for the purposes of expediency, but once you delve into this cause deeply enough, race is going to notice you. And, per your advice, you would be totally unprepared to respond to the inevitable racism accusations.

    (1-C) This black bit has been tried before, and has been a spectacular failure. The reason black immigration patriotism goes nowhere is because almost all blacks vote for open borders Democrats, and the reason for that is because they’re more concerned about their gibsmedat and their hate whitey mentality than anything else.

    (2) I don’t think you need to trick the TPM into relative immigration patriotism using any rhetorical or ideological devices. Save a few of the bought off stooges, such as Sal Russo, immigration is now taking up a predominant part of the TPM’s political time and energy these days. I wish they’d bump it up to 99% of the time.

    (3) The enviro groups have been bought off specifically not to push for immigration restriction for the sake of ecology. David Gelbaum, Sierra Club.

    (4) They should be the first to want immigration restriction. Just like organized labor had a huge hand in getting immigration restriction passed in the 1920s. Yet, today’s organized labor leaders have contrived a mentality that open borders and amnesty are good for unions and will raise wages. Of course it’s phony, but what it means is that unions are just another YAY BLUE TEAM constituency more interested in Democrats winning elections than the well being of their members (who are more and more non-white service industry workers), and Democrats wining elections means electing a new people.

    (5) No matter how hard we try, K people cannot possibly beat r people in a peeing match of fecundity. By definition.

    • Roger Noah

      You did not get my point about enrolling blacks, Asians, mestizos and other minorities in the movement to stop immigration. Let me explain. Yes, I realize that the majority of blacks. mestizos and Asians will vote for cultural Marxism. However, there are non-whites who are genuine patriots (I know a few), and their active inclusion in patriotic movements like the TPP has the salutary effect of mollifying the fears of the white majority who, on principle or for expediency, do not want to be suspected of joining a racist movement. These is the silent majority that will ensure victory for our cause. I am a TPP and the presence of non-whites in our gatherings helps defuse the concerns of white newcomers who might fear they are attending a disguised Klan rally.

      We do need to actively recruit union types and environmentalists. Remember we are paleo-cons and not neo-cons and we are not captives of the plutocrat elite (even though we are all for free enterprise within the interests of the mega-tribe). So what if some of them are given to Cultural Marxism? Some are not! If you walk around and talk to people, you will find that out.

      In summary: Learn to be political, please. Otherwise, all is lost.

      • So basically what you want is for white people to continue not thinking of themselves as a tribe, to maintain this disease of pathological altruism, and throw in with some ideological abstraction passed off as “patriotism.”

        If you keep this up, I’m going to sick ATBOTL on you.

        In summary: Learn to be tribal, please. Otherwise, all is lost.

          Uhhh…
          Sounds like the Lee Atwater Party 🙁

  • corvinus

    The effect among Asians, I imagine, is due to half-white half-Asians sometimes indentifying with their European side and voting for the GOP. Most of them have white fathers, after all.

    This would be true for Hispanics, even more so since they are (ostensibly) a Christian European-based culture. Those Hispanics of mostly or entirely European descent, plus regular near-white Americans who just happen to have a Mexican parent or grandparent (of which there are many), also vote GOP as often as any white American.

    This would also nicely explain why Hispanic Texans are a swing vote (they aren’t any more liberal than whites in Minnesota) but heavily Democrat in California; the ones in Texas are more European.

    • Ultimate187

      How many half-white, half-Asian people do you think there are in this country? Answer: not enough to make a difference.

      The Asians voting for the GOP are mostly East Asians. However, there are also lots of other Asians (eg., Filipinos, Thais etc) that vote for Democrats, making the overall vote in favor of Dems. They’re also concentrated heavily in blue states to begin with.

      • Bossman

        I’ve never met anyone who was half white and half Asian. I’m sure there must be some. They do a very good job of keeping quiet about it; either that or very few of them exist.

  • SolStans

    I wonder if this translates over to the Africans among us, too.

    Not all Latinos or Hispanics are mixed populations. Latinos of European ancestry share many cultural traits with White Americans. Latinos are an extremely heterogeneous group from cultural, socioeconomic, and genetic aspects.

    Latino only refers to people who speak a language derived from Latin, and Hispanic only refers to people who speak Spanish, so there is no such thing as a Latino or Hispanic gene.

    • none of your business

      That is very true, but Richard Nixon created the Hispanic race in 1970 by executive action. He was acting on orders from the Ford Foundation.

      I only care about the Hispanics that are pouring in from Mexico into my neighborhood. Semantics blows.

      Why is it so hard to accept the fact that a huge segment of the population of Latin American is of Mestizo heritage? The first inhabitants were Indians and for the first few hundred years it was mainly bachelors from Europe who went to those parts. Many so-called Hispanics and Latinos still try to cover up their indigenous heritage.

    Why hasn’t this been reported as ‘darker skinned minorities are more likely to vote Democrat’?

    See the underlying bias?

    Another study that just reveals the obvious. OF COURSE the lighter skinned “Hispanics” are more likely to vote Republican: These are the Cubans and other mostly White Latinos and Spanish people who think and identify more as White. And OF COURSE the darkest “Hispanics” vote Democrat: These are the mostly Negro “Latino” people who with their low IQ level, on average, are going to vote for the party promising more government handouts, plus they are going to be the ones with the most resentment toward Whites in general. Another example of a study just telling us the obvious.

    Yeah, but they are no demographic threat to the one and a third BILLION Chinese, plus you can sure bet the Chinese don’t take the same crap from the blacks that we do.

    I have had more contact with East Asians than most people. Their behavior might surprise you.The majority of East Asians are Republican/Right Wing. Most of them are racist and view whites as good and don’t like blacks. A racialist white person would probably be more welcome among East Asians than among most white people (many of whom are self hating Marxists).

    Besides that I see a lot of intelligent, attractive and well adjusted Asian women willing to date relatively stupid low class white men. I never understood it.

    Now I realize a few things that most of us are never told. In China and similar places the upper class chinese have white skin and very caucasion features. Some asian looking Europeans are almost indistinguishable from upper class chinese. As well this white skin and caucasion feature (except for straight black asian hair as they don’t have any blonds or curly hair but other than that rather caucasion looking), well those features are considered signs of beauty (as well as being skinny). So much so that Asian women use umbrellas to keep from getting at tan.

    So this is why a typical Chinese woman would date some loser white guy. It’s because he looks similar to the Chinese ideal of beauty and what their upper class looks like. Maybe a little different, a little bit exotic but still.

    The typical “Asian” we have in our minds is a short darker bucked tooth person. This is more of the peasantry. Southern Chinese and Southern Asians are shorter and darker. Northern Chinese are tall like Europeans, light skinned etc. and among them the upper class has caucasion like traits.

    And in their society they still retain this “racism” much more so than in the West.

    Something similar, albeit a bit different existed in India with a white upper crust and blacks at the bottom then various mixes in the middle. It also occurs in places like brazil where everyone is racially mixed. White is considered upper class as in caucasion physical traits and lighter skinned is associated with smarter people and rulers. There race is not determined by ancestry, since everyone has similar mixture, but its determined mostly by physical features along with social status.

    This is basically where some of the Nazis ideas of a ruling race came from. Academia has tried to hide all of these facts to fit in with their white hating/ pro-zionist agenda.

    The other thing is also Asians usually like Jews and believe they control the world etc.
