Race Ethnic Heritage

Satisfactory Essays
Race is the biologically inherited characteristics that define a group of people. Such as the color of their skin, hair, eyes, etc. ethnicity, however, is more the inherited culture of a group of people. This includes common ancestry, and cultural heritage. The difference is that race is something that a person is born with and it can’t be changed or helped (mostly, though there have been some that tried). Ethnicity for the most part is taught and learned. No, ancestry is not something that can be changed but religious beliefs, language, music, clothing etc. can be. If you take a newborn from one race and ethnicity and place him in a home on the other side of the planet, his race won’t change but his ethnicity will mirror the home that he grew
