I'm sorry for the tangential nature here.

Oh-tay. I think that the difference it makes is one of feeling accepted
in society. I guess that I can only speak from my personal experience,
but i definately appreciate seeing people who look similar to half (or
all) of my heritage in the mass media. Feeling like a visible minority
is only aggravated by having absolutely no representation in the media.
So when i see people who have asian ancestry in bands, i applaud that,
but i don't covet them or anything.

No, but i think that when a person's appearance has a little to do with
their profession, what they look like does matter.
