It came across as very racist (IMO)
Racist? Let me repeat the question: how do people who look exactly the same tell each other apart? It's a completely practical question, and I bet that, were you in Wesley's position, you would ask it as well, or you may risk to say something even more insensitive down the line.
Let me ask a slightly different question in order to answer yours... Do you believe that Benzites actually "look exactly the same" or do they just appear to look the same to outsiders because they evolved on "the same geo-sphere"? It's not a practical question because it is not a practical problem.

Thanks to corporalcaptain for the link. That's exactly what I meant.
