I live in the Bay Area and I notice that Pacific Islander men on average are taller than Asian men. I have a Tongan friend who is 6 foot 3 and a Samoan friend who is 5 foot 11.

IME they aren't really taller on average, but they sure are heavy-set.

Maoris of New Zealand are the most westernised Pacific Islanders. Their diet is very westernised, so it is not suprising to see some who have westerner's physical characteristics.

How can you compare one regional sub-group (pacific islanders) to a whole hemisphere (western)?
