    I would say that white BO is a bit spicy. Black BO is meaty, like pork. Hispanic BO is mostly like white. Asian BO is sour, more like what an accumulation of sweat smells like.

    Did you have actual smell tests done? [​IMG] I believe diet is somehow part of the equation for body odor.

    Oh, yes, Indians smell like curry. The spices are sweated out.

    Like Asian sweat?

    Smells more like rice to me.

    I would say it depends on the individual and their diets, but generally speaking East Asians smell less, while Whites smell like cheese and meat.

    White people smell like ignorance, cultural exploitation, oppression, and ketchup.

    Speaking from personal experience (unlike some others in this thread), I find Asians to have the most subtle smell, and generally a bit sweeter than others. Like a strawberry milkshake.

    Strawberry milkshake?! Maybe perfume mixed with sweat... or maybe people who work on strawberry farms... but normal people smelling like strawberry milkshakes?[​IMG] I'd be curious if black people smell like chocolate milkshakes. [​IMG] Ha ha just kidding - j/k. Please don't take offense if you smell like a chocolate milkshake. I smell like a Banana milkshake. Nothing wrong with milkshakes of any flavor. There's a whole rainbow of delicious smelling milkshakes out there. I happen to prefer strawberry...

    Maybe you'd prefer watermelons, kool-aid, or fried chicken? This thread is absurd, BTW. Asians smell like rice?

    I don't mean literally that she/they smell like strawberry milkshakes, just that it's the best comparison in terms of body odor. A very "pink" flavor might be a better way to describe how I feel.

    I have met one Asian girl who was more of a "mustardy yellow" smell, though I'm not sure if genetics were to blame. More likely hygiene.

    I like watermelons and fried chicken, but kool-aid has too much sugar... Asians don't smell like rice. I have it on good authority that they smell like strawberry milkshakes. EDIT: Asians smell pink and sometimes yellow.

    Actually Koreans sometimes smell of garlic and kimchee. Japanese can smell slightly of miso. Sometimes natto if they haven't showered for a while...

    I smell like Karate, superior technology, and amusing 80's stereotypes mixed with haggis, broadswords, and British oppression.

    Funnily enough, white people smell like racism.

    Anyone in the LA area that listens to Kevin and Bean knows that white people smell like mayonnaise.
    This is from the unofficial Kevin and Bean blog:

    From the 8/24/2006 show:
    For anyone not familiar with the show here is a quick summary of what the Wheel o’ Racial Stereotypes
    is:
