(or something more interesting)
A race should not be confused with an ethnicity. A race is the population classification for an ethnic group. It may be used instead of “ethnicity” for two reasons. First, the race name identifies that population as being of a specific ethnic ethnic group in some area of the world. Second, it is often the first name for a group of children of a given group.
How often do races take place?
Unlike ethnicity, which is very common, races are very rare. The number of races recorded in Britain in 1874, the census year of English people that covered Britain and the rest of Europe, is estimated at about one. The first recorded British race was a Welsh race called Doric. By 1770, the race classification for Englishmen had expanded to include races from Ireland, Scotland, and southern Africa.
How old are races?
In the 1800s, all children of British born people were identified as either white or black. That changed after 1840, when all children born of British people who were not of Indian or black origin were identified as white, regardless of race. This policy of naming race changed at the end of the 19th century to use “race” more frequently; black people were now also referred to by “African” and “Negro.” Some of the racial categories then used were African, Indian, and yellow. By 1900, all people born in Britain were counted as white and all children born of British persons of British Indian descent were identified as white. This system of race naming remained in force until the 1880s. Only two names for races still remain in use: white and black. (The racial classification for African people is the same as for whites, and their race is now shown by the letter A.)
How many races are there?
There are about 566 distinct racial groups in Britain. Most races were first recorded in the 15th century and then spread over three centuries. The first recorded race from any country was the Welsh, which was reported by Thomas Maitland in 1560, but it was not until later in the 16th century that Europeans actually recorded racial groups as distinct races.
Is there an English race?
No. The term is not used in British English. The term is based on the Greek “hebraic” and Italian “gironica” for “race.” The term is often used by ethnic groups, but it is also used by other regions for similar
