If Lego makes a "Real World City" theme, a new Town theme of course, then you could have sets of city-sections and city blocks. Just think of buildings, blocks, and sections of such cities like Paris, Moscow, Kuala Lampur, Delhi, Cairo, Riyadh, Hong Kong, Tokyo, New York, Johannesburg, Rio de Janeiro, and etc. THEN, perhaps I'd be ok with "multi-ethnic" minifigs in regular non-licensed Lego products.
I aggree with you JPinoy. Kids will definetly figure grown up stuff out from exterior sources and shouldn't have to face it when they just want to play.

There are so many other groups that can feel left out.
So, minifigs should have yellow heads, that´s the way it´s supposed to be. If your imagination says it´s black, than it´s black.
Why are LEGO people yellow?
You know, I've often wondered about that myself. The Amazing Redini has been trying to get a nice bronze tan for years, but no matter what I do, I'm still yellow! But seriously, the yellow color was originally decided in 1972. The LEGO Company asked a bunch of kids about what complexion they thought looked the best. The kids they asked thought that yellow was more catchy, vivid, exciting and warm than the other colors. So we LEGO minifigs have been yellow ever since!
