Race or ethnicity?
Although the terms race and ethnicity are often used interchangeably, they do not have the same meaning, so they should not be confused. Race refers to a group, when biological characteristics are considered. The Human Genome Project has already proven that genetically all human beings belong to the same race.
The term ethnicity, on the other hand, refers to a certain group of people who share phenotypic and cultural characteristics.
Thus, the correct term that should be used to refer to physical and cultural differences between human beings is ethnicity , being “race” a word in disuse to refer to these groups.

When coalescesion takes place he believes that the excellent properties of Sambo’s component parts are intensified and the sluggish material of the white man purified and renovated.
