But I agree it probably isn't genetic. Babies are tolerant and it is when we don't consume dairy products for long when we become intolerant.

I am saying only Asians have straight hair just that only we are almost all straight haired.
I would Pacific Islanders to that group also.

That's not genetics, that's cultural. You ever meet a Chinese guy born and raised in Puerto Rico? Just wait and see if you haven't.

In some sense, we East Asians are the X-men! We just evolved differently.
Your definition of "East Asian" is very limited. There are the AInu, with thick, wavy or kinky hair hair (except for those with significant Japanese admixture), and some of the Nivkh and Manchu peoples along the Amur River also have kinky or frizzy hair, as do some Tibetans. Some of this is is due to a higher percentage of the early "Negrito" genes in those populations, that D Y-DNA haplogroup. And as you probably know, Central Asians/Inner Asians are traditionally herders, so they tolerate lactose just fine.

What about tooth type? Have you looked into who has the shovel-style front teeth, and who doesn't? There are lots of interesting points of comparison.

Ever heard of the Mongols? The Tatars? They overran most of Asia and half of Europe, in their day. Not so shy. Even now, they're not shy, generally.

I had a Mongolian friend in my city, who was smoking hot, and no old fat ugly white guy with gray hair would dare approach her like the pervs do in Thailand and the Philippines; if she didn't like you she would tell you. My Korean friends are the same way.

Perhaps Amercity is just sarcastic putting us on about how we generalize about other races and groups.

In Chinese we call that "fox stink" because it is unusual and unpleasant while among other races it is common (unusual not to have it). This is why they take a shower in the MORNING. I can go without a show for a week and nobody will smell anything (not that it is something we should do). Basically all humans carry this gene (like all animals) when they left Africa but only east Asians lost it somehow.
Where did you get your stats? The thing about body odor is that persons who have it cannot smell it themselves. I would say that your 5% for Chinese and 90% for Caucasians do not exactly reflect my nose's experience. I would rather have someone who applies deodorant and/or showers daily sit next to me in a crowded train/bus rather than someone who thinks they have some kind of genetic advantage and has not showered for 3 days! I actually had the unpleasant experience of having to ask my close friend (ethnic Chinese) to stop writing his school paper for a few minutes and take a shower first, because we can smell him just by sitting next to him, for he has not showered in three days. That was the first and last time we noticed his body odor... so please, no one attempt one week without shower and assume no one can smell anything!

Duh. Why would a sane woman in her 20s actually go out with someone old enough to be her father? Unless they have $$$$
