as a brown eyed person i full heartedly STAN this post
also psa: idk if i’m rlly qualified to say this bc i’m white but?? if your character is asian, african american, etc,,, it’s vv unlikely they’ll have blue or green eyes. i see this happen a lot, esp with asian characters- and to that i say this. while blue eyed and green eyed asians probably exist out there, it is very unlikely that most, if not all of your asian characters have blue/green eyes. and then for some reason it commonly occurs among japanese characters, which is Big Yikes! japan isolated itself for years, albeit that was like,,, ages,,, ago,,, and didn’t have much contact with europe as far as i know. blue and green eyes are prominent in europe and some asian countries, but not in east asian countries like china and japan. it’s okay to make an asian character — or really, any kind of character with blue or green eyes — but there should be characters with other eye colors to balance it out. i don’t mean to gatekeep or be an sjw but i just wanna put this out there.
