    About this video:
    Chris is a grad student studying Anthropology at the University of Washington. One day we were talking and he said: "You know there are studies that show white people can tell the difference between Asian food but not Asian people." So, we made that into a video. We also had some of our Asian friends and family take the test.

  • Rachel Davison

    I guessed them all right but ended up giving the Japanese card to the Japanese by default. I did think maybe swap the Korean and Japanese around but the Koreans mannerisms were very "Korean" to me.
    I love how diverse Asian cultures are getting, while still keeping their cultures, how you can't pin point a certain culture to a person because they have multiple cultures in their background.

    All Asians look the same. And I don’t mean it like that. I mean you can’t tell the difference between a Japanese man and a Korean man just like how you can’t tell the difference between a white German man and a white French man.

    I had issues "labeling" the Korean guy and the Japanese guy,
    the Korean guy definitely looks Japanese (and I lived 2 years in Japan)

    This is the mainstream, stereotypical representation of Asia. There's that many other people from other backgrounds and countries you guys could've chosen that are 'Asian'. CUT let's not be even more ignorant to Asia's diversity.. How about Indonesia, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka.. You would've had that much more diversity because Asia has many more ethnic groups and variations to be represented other than these guys. There's more to Asia than just Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnam and Thai... Where are the folks with actual indigenous heritage to represent their country, or is this as 'Asian' as you guys can stomach??
