    I found an interesting video that perhaps all Asian Americans could personally relate. I think that it’s important that we raise the issues on beauty, conformity and standards. The truth is that too many of us Asian Americans struggle with the double-standard. We are a culture that is so ingrained in our roots, yet we live in a Western world with a completely different definition of beauty. I thought that the video was an interesting investigation into the definition of the problem, but there weren’t any solid solutions. Perhaps it is eluding that the solution is unknown. As cities become more multicultural, how do we define and accept our physical selves without having society dictate our definition of beauty. Is there a democracy in beauty?
