There are no regulations per say, but bigotry and biases certainly exist in the adoption community and with government social workers which can be more of a hindrance than laws.

  • Some American Indian tribes have restrictions on adoption of Indian children. The children of some tribes are available for adoption only by other members of that tribe. The tribe determines whether the restrictions will apply and are not subject to laws of the state in which the reservations are located.

Ethnicity is a type of person. A race is a group of people with the same ethnicity ,so ethnicity is a person that comes from a group of people. A race is incorrectly implied in a sentence like , what race are you? this is incorrect because a race is a group of people with the same ethnicity .so a example of ethnicity would be if there was a Chinese man and he lived in a western community and followed western culture his race is Chinese and his ethnic group is still Chinese but he isn't as ethical to that culture as other Chinese raced people who live in china.

What does it mean to say that race and ethnicity are socially constructed?

Race distinguishes people by their physical appearance (skin tone), while ethnicity distinguishes people by their culture- what they "share" with others (i.e. language, religion). Race and ethnicity are socially constructed, which means that they are only apparent because of how people view others. Race and ethnicity are created by society as a way to create generalized assumptions- labels. They are used because they are distinct markings- people can easily be grouped together by their similarities and separated by their differences. Even though race and ethnicity are socially constructed, people do not always have the ability to choose their race or ethnicity. This is because race and ethnicity are not random. They originate from geographical location.
