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.

Race and ethnicity are indeed two separate things. Race is how others may see you, and ethnicity is how you view yourself.

Yes. Race is an archaic form of ethnicity, in my opinion. Others see race as a biological term, while ethnicity is cultural.

Some would say that race is an archaic form of ethnicity. Others would argue that race is biological, while ethnicity is cultural and constructed. I'm part of the former camp - race is constructed, it's just a part of ethnicity.

AnswerRace describes biological descent. Ethnicity describes cultural heritage.ANSWER:The finish line. Ethnicity is learned, race is inherited.______________________________________________________________________Third opinion - Race is just an archaic version of ethnicity. Black is an ethnicity, White is an ethnicity, so is Caucasoid. They're all ethnic constructions.Fourth opinion- Race means subspecies. One can argue with that there are no 'subspecies' of the Human species, thus meaning that 'race' does not exist, leaving ethnicity as the only characteristic trait of the two in describing a human.

Because race only exists when people decide that there are differences between people.

Bilingual means a person knows one or more languages. Race has nothing to do with it and neither does ethnicity. A Martian could come to earth and learn English and he would be bilingual.

Their race is Asian if you mean ethnicity. If you mean motor sports, then the Dakar Rally is a major race that is held there.

No. While Hispanic is not actually a race, many people confuse race and ethnicity.
