Also, I remember reading an article somewhere where it was written that the there were TV people who said "Japanese drama are for Japanese only" or something like that.

Some would suffer from outbreeding depression (another well known concept). You say this as if you actually knew what it meant in the context of human populations. Go ahead, tell me again what the average F_ST distance is between "races", and what the estimated proportion of variation is which is "...
