Japanese artist Tomoko Sawada says Americans often tell her she looks Korean or Chinese or a number of other East Asian ethnicities. The experience inspired her to open a new exhibit in Los Angeles, called "Facial Signature." CCTV America's Patrice Howard reports:

human beings share 99.99999 percent of the same genes. All of us — despite having different types of so-called “added cultural values” — such as nationality, race, religion, and language — are by nature and essence equal to one another.
