  In this screen capture of the survey results the question [Do you check the safety of food products when shopping?], we are given a close-up of the artist's representation of a Chinese high school student. Rather than having large eyes like his Japanese counterpart, the Chinese student has slit lines for eyes. The Korean student's eyes seem a little bit smaller than those of the Japanese student, but his eyes at least have pupils. In contrast, the American student's eyes are about the same size as those of the Japanese student.
  What, dear readers, are we to make of this?

  "What, dear readers, are we to make of this?"
  Um, that some people are more interested in trying to find racist conspiracy theories in cartoon characters than they are in thinking about the ramifications of the fact that 42 percent of Chinese high school students are concerned about the safety of their food?
  I mean, that's pretty frightening when you realize that high school students are unbalanced bags of raging hormones and are generally only concerned with sleeping, the opposite sex, goofing off, the opposite sex, stuffing their faces, the opposite sex, yakking, the opposite sex, sex and the opposite sex. And not necessarily in anything close to that order.
  But in China, the kids are concerned about whether their food is safe. Not surprising, I lived there for about 10 months, and it was a joy coming to Japan and not having to worry about whether there were rocks in your rice. I mean, anyplace that can't figure out how to keep small stones out of the rice in restaurants and dining halls is not likely to be too fussy about unseen things like chemicals and bacteria.
  C'mon James, we know you're Chinese, but lift your game. Stop troll-baiting.

  The survey's results are indeed interesting, and I'd love to see readers who want to discuss the survey to leave comments about it. I can't really say that I'm genuinely surprised that high schoolers living in a third world country are more concerned about food safety than those living in first world nations, though.
  I was planning on just doing a post about the survey, but once I saw the politically incorrect image used in the news broadcast, I couldn't help but test the reactions of this site's readership. I guess it could be considered 'troll-baiting,' in which case I'll attempt to moderate some of the most extreme and ugly comments.
  [I appreciate your comments, as well as those by some of the other most vocal readers, but I must declare that some recent discussions have been getting far too personal among you guys. Try to be more civil when replying to comments that you regard as stupid...]

  Obviously that the evil Chinese person is squinting his eyes evilly as he evilly plans to add poison to the Japanese person's food. In a very evil manner.

  Everyone seems to be caught up in the debate over the animated character, but doesn’t anyone else think it’s strange that 17.5% of American high schoolers are checking food for safety?
  I don’t think I’ve ever considered the safety of the food I eat in the US. I also don’t represent all American high schoolers, but what are they looking for? The only food scares I can remember are the E. coli outbreaks at fast food restaurants.
  Look guys, I honestly think there is something to this. The American guy and Japanese guy are exactly the same--except for differences in hair color. I mean that is kind of scary. The fact of the matter is that since the Meiji period, Japanese artists have tried their best to portray Japanese people as more Caucasian like and less like their neighbors. It is amazing how many people I see in Japan with perms to make their hair straight or dyed hair. Contrastingly, Chinese people rarely dye their hair or get perms.
  The portrayal of the Chinese boy in this video shocked me as it is characteristic of the traditional and stereotypical ways that Europeans portrayed Asians in their writings and drawings in the 1800's.
  To give you an idea of how scary this is: Imagine African Americans, wanting to distinguish themselves from Africans from Africa, by drawing pictures of Africans with big lips and large Afros while drawing African Americans with straight hair, long noses, and light skin.
  (no racism intended as I am an African American but it is a decent parallel)
  The program broadcasters could have simply showed actual pictures of students from each respected country as you know, in this modern day and age, we have access to the world wide web which contains a plethora of decent pictures of students of every nationality.

  Do you think the young people with dyed hair really want to look like Caucacians? Hilarious! The fashion is only the strategy of differenciation and you don't have the right to determine the meaning in this floating world. Your racialist interpretation would be the theme of politico-cultural studies because I met a few white guys who said the same thing.

  Many people dye their hair blonde only to be different?
  Why didn't people do that during the Edo period?
  Many of my Japanese friends have said that the reason people dye their hair is due to the concept of Akogare 憧れ (yearning)and emulation as opposed to a desire to be different.

  Asian people have straighter hair than most Westerners, if anything they perm it to make it curly. Westerners dye their hair red to emulate red-haired people, however I doubt it's because they want to be Scottish or Irish. They just like variety. Asian features are perhaps less various in the hair and eye department, so people who want to stand out in a group will obviously try to differentiate themselves somehow.
  In short, clothes, hair, makeup, jewelry: cool
  Cosmetic surgery: not cool.
