You know, this is is one of those things I've wondered about. This is a country full of immigrants, and all too frequently immigrants form closed communities. I know that there are Russian communities in this country that are disenfranchised from our justice system despite being the "right" color. They don't speak the language, they don't understand the customs, and they are at a distinct disadvantage when they try to maneuver through the legal system. Just because you're white (or Asian! As a Korean-American, I'll insert myself into this discussion) doesn't mean that you are not from a community that is under-represented. It seems to me that there are those of us who have the unique opportunity to serve under-represented communities by virtue of our heritage, and as such, deserve special recognition regardless of our skin color.
