Race and Skin Properties

We are NOT “all the same.”

See this about skin properties.

See this. Excerpts below, emphasis added:
Ethnic groups and highlighted key differences in facial structure 
Caucasian face Narrower nasal base and larger tip projection, intercanthal widths identical to the African face, lips with less volume 
East Asian face Weaker facial skeletal framework, wider and rounder face, higher eyebrows, fuller upper lid, lower nasal bridge with horizontally placed flared ala, flatter malar prominence and midface, more protuberant lips, and more receded chin 
Latino/Hispanic face Increased bizygomatic distance, bimaxillary protrusion, broader nose, broad rounded face, and a more receded chin 
African-American face  Broad nasal base, decreased nasal projection, bimaxillary protrusion, orbital proptosis, increased soft tissue of the midface, prominent lips, and increased facial convexity
I don’t like the “Caucasian” category that bins MENA folks with Europeans, but, putting that aside, note the important and fundamental differences in facial structure between the major racial groups.

Let’s consider the HBDers' favorite continent – Asia:
The Asian face. The Asian population is quite diverse. Literature is limited and has typically focused on a particular ethnicity or a small number of outcomes in several Asian populations, mostly from East Asia. Although literature is limited and without a full, thorough comparison, there are many differences that have been noted. East Asians typically have less wide mouths, elongated intercanthal width, and wider lower nasal margins.38 Studies suggest that Asians have a weaker facial skeletal framework, which results in greater gravitational soft-tissue descent of the mid-face, malar fat pad ptosis, and tear trough formation. It has also been proposed that the facial structure of Asians is similar to that of an infant, including a wider and rounder face, higher eyebrow, fuller upper lid, lower nasal bridge with horizontally placed flared ala, flatter malar prominence and midface, fuller and more protuberant lips, and more receded chin.39,40
Note the neotenic aspects of the Asian phenotype East Asian facial structure is similar to that of an infant. Also note that the higher body fat percentages of East Asians is also infant-like. This supports the idea that Yellow Fever has an underlying pedophilia predisposition to it. It is perhaps not surprising that a leading “movement” figure with an East Asian wife has publicly questioned why child porn should be illegal. Note the "frog faced" characteristics of the East Asian facial phenotype as well.
Despite the large South East Asian population, limited studies have been conducted assessing facial structure. Overall, there is tremendous variability over such a large geographic area and diverse population. Despite this, it is generally accepted that those from the Indian subcontinent share more Caucasoid than Mongoloid anatomical traits of the skull and face. 
Here we see the authors binning South Asians with East Asians, which is just as (if not more) racially stupid as binning Europe with MENA:
Compared to East Asians, South Asians typically possess eyelids that are on a more highly exposed platform, have well-developed nasal bridge with tip projection, and have comparatively darker and more uneven skin tones. Also, South Asians tend to have fuller lips and higher cheek bones with more buccal fat, often giving the lower cheek a more rounded contour. These features often provide physical support for the aging face more so than other Asian ethnicities.
The bottom line: Race is real and is written on all of our faces.  Live with it.  Reality doesn’t care about your politically correct feelings.
