Seeing this picture really angered me because I have not seen this 'hand-stretching-eyes' action for such a long time. Everyone knows it is offensive to Oriental people, as it takes the piss out of a feature that we all possess. It is what differentiates us from others and something we, as Asians should be taught to appreciate from a young age and to never feel ashamed of our 'unique' trait. As a child, being the only Chinese kid in a class of 30 or so obviously meant that I was some what picked on because of my eyes or my race. I am not going to lie, when I was very very young I did feel ashamed to be Oriental, at such a young age all you really want to do is fit in. Of course this is quite common, but you have to remember that you were being picked on by your peers who at the time are only 4 - 7 years old. They eventually (hopefully...) grow and learn, and more often than not, never go back to nit-picking at someones race. Obviously Miley (and co.) skipped a growing process in life as she is still carrying on this way.
Obviously now, at my tender age of 20, I am more happy in my skin, proud of my heritage and see my 'Oriental eyes' as something special rather than it being a flaw like I did many, many years ago. My eyes are not funny, nor is my skin tone and I sure as hell do not know any Oriental people who has buck teeth, the size of a hand, as you, mister in the background, so kindly demonstrate.
Oh and this is a justification of this photo:"this is America- you can do whatever the hell you want with your eyes."
WTF!! I have never read such nonsense in my life! This, along with the other crap that people commented in that article which basically says "Yeah, It is OK to pull this face when I see a Chinese Person." Whatever bitches, try that with me know, and the only hand -to-face action you will be getting is my backhand-to-your-face.
Sorry peoples, I had to get that out my system! On a higher note: 4 days until I depart this cold and wet land of Londoners to visit New York, New York!
