Chinese ladies walk around under umbrellas in the sunshine to avoid tanning and the market is awash with skin lightening products, this is down to historic reasons. In the past the rich stayed indoors so had pale skin, the poor worked in the fields so had tanned skin, hence a pale skin made you look like a rich person. The same applies in the West where rich people could afford to travel to warmer climes and to get a sun tan while the poor stayed home so darker skin signified a richer person.
Wanting a pale skin has nothing to do with not wanting to look Chinese where as cosmetic surgery to make rounder eyes does.

it is true if I were a girl or a guniang I would not like to look like a different race.

a man who uses his hands is a laborer. one who uses his hands and his mind is a craftsman. but he who uses his hands, his mind, and his heart, is an artist...
