I think the stereotype about Cantonese by Northern Chinese are just their own imaginary image that they created because of their assumption that because we are geographically the southern most province in china, they automatically assume we "should" look totally non-han, when actually Cantonese on average look like any other Han Chinese, except the only difference is the height. If you look at this video of your average Taishanese for example, you will see they look Han: http://www.56.com/u7...TQ4NzA1MzA.html
all stereotypes have an element of truth to them. there is so much genetic variation within the Chinese Han population that it is not absurd at all to deduce that Han Chinese living in the South of China will have an overlap of genetic make-up with their South Eastern brethren due to ethnic-mixing, invasions, etc. and this can be reflected in their physical appearance too. the truth is that if you walk down a street in Guangdong you will find plenty of people who fit the "North Chinese" image - as well as, if not more, people who fit the "South Chinese" image due to the above reasons.
your attempt to create countless threads about "how Taishanese/South Chinese have North Chinese physical attributes, e.g. pale skin, high nose, etc." to defend the recognition that South Chinese are *pure Han Chinese* is having the exact opposite effect. human beings are all unique, we all have a different genetic make-up, and this variation within the human race is what is worth noting, respecting, and accepting. you do not have to keep trying to *prove* to the forum that Taishanese people are just like the Northern Han people in terms of physical attributes, because the simple fact is, whilst they do share similar attributes, there is a noticeable difference between North and South Chinese - and this has been proved countless times throughout the various threads on the genetic make-up of mainland China.
the fact that you keep on posting select videos with Taishanese people that happen to exhibit Northern Chinese physical features just smells of insecurity and the narrow-minded belief that the North is better than the South and it relates to what is what was once *pure* Han Chinese - it is also very shallow. get over it, seriously. you have posted so many threads about this issue, often drawing mundane and inconclusive connections between things, e.g.
- that isn't interesting at all - the logical reason why they married Shanghainese men is because they were working in Shanghai, i.e. Shanghainese actresses, and so all the available men around them were most probably Shanghainese.
Also many famous Shanghainese Actresses comes from the Taishan area of Guangdong: (What is interesting is that they all married shanghainese guys)
