Anonymous: Could you explain the difference between race and ethnicity? I don't really understand
idk from my understanding race can be like black white etc and ethnicity is like cultural group… but that’s a really general definition it’s just how i see it, like you have a race but along with that you also have an ethnicity like i can be black and latina you can be white and latina and/or hispanic as well like think of Zoe Saldana and then think of Shakira. Like I don’t know if Zoe identifies as black or Shakira as white along with their latin heritage but when I think of it that’s how I see the diff between race and ethnicity
1. Ethnicity is about the learned cultural behaviors celebrated throughout regions around the world.
2. Race is an indication of the heritage with which you were born, regardless of location or learned behavior.
3. Ethnicity can be altered or mimicked through choice and beliefs.
4. Race cannot be altered.
