So if you have different shades of white, brown, asian, and black skin tones in the picture, do you get one right and others wrong?

If you don't get colors right at the moment of capture - you have lost a lot of information forever.

But surely that would only happen if you got the exposure wrong - blew a channel or underexposed beyond the useful range of the sensor. If the exposure is correct then skin tones are a matter of rendering, no?

like the Nikon D60, D200, D80 or D40X - they will provide perfect skin tones right out of the box. CMOS based sensors suffer from color shift depending on the light sources and if the light sources are mixed, it becomes a nightmare.
