    I went on yahoo today and this was on the front page:

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_thelo...helookout/the-most-typical-face-on-the-planet


    This seems like blatant racism/scapegoating to me.

    the word "Typical" has a negative connotation in this article meaning, common, expendable, not-worthy, inferior, and unnattractive - which is basically how the west views people of color. Notice how comments have been disabled for the article? Also, the have singled out a single ethnicity and are obviously trying to divide people.

    Imagine if this face had been a black person....
