We are all of the human RACE, and with that, ethnicity is what defines us.

I think race is a classification for living things (i.e., we're human)
Ethnicity is getting into the different characteristics of humans (color, hair, etc)
And to add, nationality is where a person is from, because someone could be of Spanish/Latin ethnicity, but be Japanese, or German, or something by nationality (citizenship, born there).

Race is like = Mamamals, Humans, etc
Ethnicity is = characteristics

and I know this is part of it but

Nationality is = American, Asian, etc

it's hard for me too explain.

Race is the color of your skin and ethnicity is your cultural background. But eh, we all belong to the human race.

Race: Personaly and scientificly I don't believe in race because we all human not concept in other species, I believe more in natural traits and in self-identification

Ethnicity: Groups with usually on the basis of a presumed common genealogy or ancestry,and marked by the recognition from others of a group's distinctiveness[2] and by common cultural, linguistic, religious, behavioral or biological traits.

*Irish
*Polish
*German
*Finnish
*Japanese
*Indian
*Mexican
*Mongolian

Race: an arbitrarily selected group of superficial physical characteristics. Examples: black, white, Asian, Latin American.

Ethnicity: a group of people united by language or a language family, or by having ancestors who spoke that language.

ethnic is like where are you from
