I’m not even going to write a long ass post telling you why you’re wrong. Let’s just get to the point.
You may be talking about color, but when it comes to whitewashing (which you mentioned in your tags Miss or Sir), it’s about race. So this post does nothing but prove that people of color do come in a variety of shades, and should be depicted as such.
They are not white. No matter how they range in skintone, they are of Asian decent. Draw them as such. Paint as such. Photoshop them as such. Yes there can be specific descriptions to their skintones, but once again they are not white people.
