&Beauty; a media-focused aspect
priviledges of the white, upper class anglo-saxon menLately, the sighting of blond-blue-light combo has been popular among fictional characters. Princesses, deities, men, women... To many, that structure is considered true beauty. But behind the scenes to Ky's appealing looks is a very struggled argument about appearance and perfection. Ky's looks are the very type of the supposed theory of a "master race". And carrying that race has lead to extremes of ethnocentrism, in which slaughtered the Jews during World War II, enslaved the Africans, and influences much racial discrimination that we see today.
If God represents the light, then any perspective of light symbolizes divinity and attractiveness. The opposite, dark, would be more related to the Devil. In a way, Ky's hair uses the lightest colors of the spectrum that are possible (and not artificial colors). Examples are proven with the art of the ancient times depicting religious symbols as blond, usually women. During the nomadic stages of mankind, blond hair evolved over the course of time due to sexual selection. Culturally, the common stereotype of blonde women is that men consider them more beautiful, hence the "blonde jokes" in America are used to insult them.
In the case of fair skin, the "scientific" theory of racism is the development of races. During the years of Imperialism, Europe has grown past the agricultural state and has moved on to industries. When the Europeans expanded over new nations, they noticed that other races were uncivilized and were definitions of "barbarians", which were the lowest of the European social ladder. In the defense of the "White Man's Burden", Europeans believed it was their solemn duty to save the unintelligent and unchristian. This also expanded the belief of monogenesis, or the belief that our first ancestors were of a single race.
But a slight difference to that belief lies on Ky's eyes. They aren't blue entirely - they are blue-green. One possible hypothesis on this would be the combination of fair tones. Most Northern Europeans have either blue or green eyes. Combining the two common colors wouldn't make Ky purely to one nation, but to the entire nations of Europe. In addition, perception of the color depends on various factors including the number of colors. In various cultures, as green is considered a hue between blue and yellow, green is considered the same as blue in the earlier years.
Although racism is now mostly looked down upon in most first and second world countries, odd habits still die hard. Most of the media widely represents white men and women, and minorities are often unable to enjoy the liberties of white men without some degree of discrimination and/or disadvantages. This is known as "the white priviledge". For more information on why this is the case, I recommend reading Peggy Mcintosh's "White Priviledge: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsake", which you can read here in a pdf file.
