    Because everyone wants to look like Americans. No one wants to look like British. That's a simple fact of Nature that isn't hard for any human to understand.

    It might just be a trend right now. Even among white people tanning is starting to become unpopular and they are now going for what they call the "creamy" look.

    Why do fat & far right chavs aspire to visit places like Vietnam and the Philippines - to play with children in 'special rooms', giving the money to their parents.

    Many Asians have fairly light skins anyway so I am surprised at this.Surely Africa is the place that should have the biggest sale where many people believe their skin color may prevent them getting the best jobs,odd really as we whites spend hours trying to get a tan.

    Just because they all look the same to you doesn't mean they do to each other. They see great variation in skin tone and lighter is considered more attractive, more like Bollywood stars than the untouchables who work outside all day. In the same way white people see false tans as a good thing (unless they end up looking like they have been Tango-ed).

    It's due to lack of street lighting.

    The white visage being visible from a greater distance.

    It's In no way a racialism.

  • Because many from that background think whites are the superior race.

    They don't, paler skin was the sign of nobility, while the workers who were outside all day developed darker skin, it's a class thing not racial

    It is the Indians.   They like to look like they are from a higher caste,  higher castes are typically of lighter colour.
