Mainstream Media’s Oriental Baby Boom

As if to make up for decades of Far Eastern negligence, the media industry is now gorging on that ethnic segment long overlooked by marketeers. Thanks to that onslaught of over-represented Asian models on the New York and European catwalks since last Spring, Orientalism finally has a face in mainstream media.

And it has gone rice-white, pearl-hued, yellow-skinned, golden-toned and almond-eyed, beginning from where they should all start: infants.

Some may want to credit this to the sociological results following that China baby-adoption boom seen in the last decade.
