the extra chromosome causes structural changes and development, so they will have those physical traits that separate them from others who don't have down syndrome, but categorize them with others who do have it.
and they don't really look the same, they just have the same trait. i mean clearly that dude in the pic is asian, another person who is white, would have the structural traits but would be white. they don't all look the same. you can easily distinguish between a white person with down syndrome and an asian one....
