    At least you show the self awareness to admit it friend. There's hope for you.

    Incidentally, the two Filipino persons in question appear to be ethnically different from one another. The fellow I'm speaking of has a much more Polynesian appearance, with rounder eyes and browner skin. The other was a woman who essentially looks Japanese in every way, with light skin and very slanted style eyes. So, racially I believe they are quite different. I think the Philippines has some variety, if I'm not mistaken.

    well, racially, the entire SE asian island region is a melting pot, the people go from looking Thai, to Australian Aboriginal-esque, depending on whether they're from north or south, plus you get Pacific Islander blood as well.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I guess it is different living over there...you can really see the difference. But to me, if it's 5 feet tall with black hair, almond eyes, and a yellow tinge to its skin, its just "That asian guy".

    Well, basically, white gay men in their 20s are interchangeable as well. They're all impeccably groomed, have perfect six packs, and don't have nearly enough body hair.

    I think your best approach would be to stop talking openly about race/ethnicity entirely and save all these conversations for the internet. You're going to get sued.

    You are right about that...it seems they dont start expressing individuality in their appearances until their 30's roll around.
