I happened upon this video today about Asians opting to have plastic surgery on their eyes to look more Western. Some have even gone so far as to change the structure of their faces.  

I was very upset when they began talking about the mothers who bring in their 2 year olds to have their tongues cut so that when they are older they will be able to speak English more clearly. 

It made me think of the study we talked about in several of my psychology classes where the little black children preferred to play with the little white doll because they said it was pretty were as the little black doll was ugly.
