    The media tend to want those who are homogenized in looks i.e. the ones that have the MOST crossover appeal.They want those with Caucasian-like features,this causes many w/strong ethnic features to physically assimilate in order to be more bankable.

    One quick note: Whites and Latina's have been known to have nose jobs, breast/butt implants, dye their hair/add corn roll extensions, wear blue/grn contact lens, tan/change skin tones, act "street" and they're not accused of "hating themselves". hmmm
