The antagonism between ethnicity and culture is an important issue for scholars and professionals alike, as these two concepts are often confusing and confusing in popular and academic discourse. They are often use differently as symbols of different social groups. It has been argue that both terms have been use very loosely as colloquialisms for “the nation.” Culture is often presenter as an inherent part of ethnicity. But a closer look shows an important difference between these concepts, which we must accept as cultural structures. Differences between ethnicity and culture have important practical consequences in a globalized world. Raises questions about how both ethnicity and culture

We explore the empirical relationship between ethnicity and culture as defined as a characteristic vector that reflects norms, values, and attitudes. Using survey data for 76 countries, we find that ethnic identity is a significant predictor of cultural values.

Thus, contrary to popular opinion, there is no connection between ethnic and cultural diversity. Although only a small part of the overall cultural disparity in a country occurs between groups, we find that when there is an overlap between ethnicity and culture, various political and economic processes (such as civil conflict and the supply of public goods) deteriorate.

Genetics and race

Race or ethnicity cannot be identifier in human genes. Humans have genetic variations, some of which were once associated with generations from different parts of the world. But those differences cannot be for in different biological groups.

Although race has no genetic basis, the social concept of race still shapes human experience. Racial bias leads to social exclusion, discrimination and violence against individuals in certain social groups. On the other hand, racial prejudice grants social privileges to some and social and physical inequalities to others, and is more prevalent in the hierarchy of privileges for people with whiter skin than people with darker skin tones.

Ethnic and ethnic groups – Explain these terms

An ‘ethnic group’ is define as groups that is consider by others or consider distinct communities by certain characteristics that help distinguish the group from the surrounding community.


Ethnicity is the cultural elements use to classify people into groups or groups that are consider to be significantly different from others.

Commonly recognized American ethnic groups include African Americans, American Indians, Latin / as, Chinese Americans, European / Anglo Americans, Muslim Americans, and Jewish Americans. Sometimes ethnicity has a common group identity with little or no cultural traditions.

Some food, “ethnic” clothing on festive occasions, language minorities. In contrast, some U.S. ethnic groups are subcultures with a common language or dialect and tradition.

Newly arrived immigrant groups often fit this pattern, but so have groups that have been here for centuries.

It is important not to confuse the term minority with ethnic groups. Ethnic groups can be a minority or a majority of the population and have nothing to do with “who came here first”.

Whether a group is a minority or a majority is not an absolute truth and depends on the point of view of team members as well as those who are not in the group.

For example, in some cities and towns in the southern border states of the United States,

American Indians, long before any of us, were considered a minority in the United States. Some ethnic groups and entire races are culturally more homogeneous than others; thus, they have fewer “minorities.” Sweden and Korea are two examples.

Give yourself a gift. Open yourself to the richness of diversity as a learning strategy.


Diversity is a broader category that describes interactions between groups. We often talk about African Americans, U.S. The. When Latinos /, Asian Americans, American Indians, and / or Anglo-Americans interact with each other.

But, there can also be great diversity within an ethnic group, as many ethnic groups of Anglo and African Americans displaced by Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast testify: urban professionals, rural Cajuns playing French-influenced

sidekicks, American, day laborers, Jazz and Haitians – not to mention African Americans and Latin Cubans, Puerto Ricans and Dominicans.

U.S. the.  As Latinos, Asian Americans and American Indians may differ greatly from one another based on their national origins, cultural history, and identities: Cuban and Mexican, Lebanese and Chinese, Navajos and Cherokees.

The media is accustomed to the idea that every story has only two sides, and the complex Katrina situation is simplified and reduced to black and white, which, in addition to African Americans, and only many critics understand. Anglo-American ethnic groups, tens of thousands of Latin, Asians, and American Indians (and every possible combination) were also displaced.

When discussing the diversity of corporations and public and private institutions, they are often interested in creating project groups that bring together different ethnic and gender groups. Team recruitment and retention, product and service planning, marketing or image

This is true whether or not it works.

Recognizing these benefits, our education system is far behind the professional world, but we are beginning to capture it. The Gilford Group of K-State, chaired by Dr. Juanita McGowan, has been a major force in the progress of our university.

This is what we mean when we talk about the educational benefits of a diverse learning environment, whether at work, in a dormitory, on a university committee, or in class. The goal we need to work on is: not to divide and exclude diversity, but to learn and grow together.

Fear is everything that stops us. But on the other side of fear is a rich, amazing discovery and on this side we have unimaginable potentials.
