The reason

The different points between Chinese, which are used to distinguish each others by Chinese, are missing in foreign people. So Chinese people think the foreign people, especial who are western races, are similar to another and vice versa.

DO ALL WESTERNERS LOOK THE SAME WAY ?

The question by Fluffy ilustrates what is  a common place in the ethnocentric and very often racist view  by which a culture  looks at  other culture  who doesn't fit within our 'beauty' patterns, as a mass of indiferenciated individuals, or conflicting with our aesthetical archaetypes.Those  are  relative values changing from place to place  and from century to century.

Hope this help to look into our own values.

The same

It is a function of the brain that makes people look different.  If you are not exposed to different looking people at an early age then your brain will not be able to differentiate.   Many people here think that one of the former teachers here and myself look alot alike.  Yet, we do not think we look alike.  It is a matter of exposure.
