"Bones" Question

The forensic scientists on this show are constantly making racial identifications based on bone structure. I am completely on board with the idea that generally speaking broadly defined ethnic groups exhibit similarities in physical features. But. What happens with multi-ethnic folks? For example, I have Asian, Western European and Eastern European ancestry. What bone structure do I exhibit? Or even my mother who is half Chinese and half English.

Scientific curiosity plus anthropological curiosity plus morbid curiosity.

Edit: There is obviously a level of TV fantasy here, but now I'm curious about the underlying science that this crazy TV act is based on.
