Why isn't the male wizard Asian?

All the other races are consistent with the ethnicity of their male and female versions. Why did Blizzard make the female wizard Asian and the male wizard White?

I'm pretty sure the video of the female wizard that I saw she was white but I dunno.... If anyone is gonna be Asian it'll probly be the monk

He looks Asian to me. He looks kind of like Samanosuke from that Onimusha game. And he was based on a Japanese actor or something.

hawt, yea?

And, ironically, the Female Monk is as "white" as it gets out of all the models, let alone the female ones.

Looks like only the female wizard is Asian:

Looking at her nose and eyes, there's no doubt she's Asian. The male wizard on the other hand is not Asian:

No Asian has a long pointy nose like that. The eyes aren't a typical east Asian person's eyes, either. He really looks like a White guy with long dark hair.

Blizzard should really just offer skin color choices like other rpgs.

The male wizard looks female to me. So you have two female choices: asian or not asian.

Strange you would think that. I am white and my boyfriend is Asian; I don't know any white person that looks like the male wizard, but I know some Asians that look similar to him. The first time I saw the male wizard I actually thought he resembled a less rugged version of my neighbor -- he's of Korean and Chinese ethnicity. Hehehe. ^_^
