Race is indeed an arbitrary social construct, but as I understand it, ethnicity refers more commonly to certain subdivisions within a so-called race. For instance, people may speak of the Yoruba,...

Every culture has its problems, I think. Asian, African, or Western, no one is perfect.

Achillobator's Doodlings (Dinos and Ladies)

I avoid "Mid-eastern" whenever possible, largely because it is Eurocentric and geographically vague. "Southwest...
