Be advised, it is rather blunt and crude, but it makes it legit point: https://www.youtube.com...

The video was mentally retarded and I'm surprised to see that you think it makes a "legit point." Probably the type of people that vote Trump.

The racism that the author of the video says isn't racism is when a non-Asian person says that all Asians look like. That's a racist statement. All Asians don't look alike and you can certainly identify one Asian that you meet from another Asian that you know.

The presenter then uses an absurd "test" to ask us to tell which Asian is from which country. That's impossible and not relevant in context. A better test would have been to introduce an Asian person by their name, introduce another Asian person by their name, and check to see if the viewer can remember their names when their picture is shown. Unless they are twins or look unnaturally alike, the viewer will be able to identify it.

I would have called it misguided rather than retarded if it wasn't for the presenter's extremely unpleasant attitude which is doubly repulsive when he pretends as if he knows what he's talking about and is wrong.

That was painful lol. His tests don't actually address his claim, which itself was misguided.

That said, I agree that being unable to distinguish individuals of the same ethnic/racial group from one another is not inherently racist, for two reasons. First, that inability is a flaw in the observer, not the observed. Second, humans have difficulty distinguishing unfamiliar facial features, so if you are rarely around individuals with certain features, you may initially have difficulty telling individuals apart. Of course, the speaker in the video falls down again when he claims we can't tell people from the same race apart because they actually look alike.

I'm not even sure how our society would be able to function if this were true lol
