  Ethnic group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An ethnic group is a culture or subculture whose members are readily distinguishable by outsiders based on traits originating from a common racial, national, linguistic, or religious source.
Members of an ethnic group are often presumed to be culturally or biologically similar, although this is not in fact necessarily the case.
Ethnic groups share a common origin, and exhibit a continuity in time, that is, a history and a future as a people.

 Ethnic group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-20)
An ethnic group is a group of people who identify with one another, or are so identified by others, on the basis of a boundary that distinguishes them from other groups.
Because of this boundary, members of an ethnic group are often presumed to be culturally or biologically similar, although this is not in fact necessarily the case.
Another characteristic of ethnic groups is continuity in time, that is, a history and a future as a people.

 Ethnic Cleansing and Genocide
Ethnic Cleansing: The elimination of an unwanted group from a society, as by genocide or forced migration.
Ethnic cleansing has been defined as "the elimination of an unwanted group from society, as by genocide or forced migration." This definition is inherently broader than that of genocide alone, and thereby encompasses mass killings and forced removals in far greater number and scope.
Ethnic cleansing, then, may involve death or displacement, or any combination thereof, where a population is identified for removal from an area.

 Lethal Ethnic Riots: Lessons from India and Beyond: Special Reports: Publications: U.S. Institute of Peace
He defined ethnic riots as intense, sudden, but not necessarily wholly unplanned, lethal attacks on the civilian members of one ethnic group by civilian members of another ethnic group, with the victims chosen because of their group membership.
Deadly ethnic riots, according to Horowitz, are characterized by a mixture of hyper-vigilance and circumspection.
In choosing victims, the crowd does not care whether the member of the hated ethnic group is a good person or not, just that he or she is a member of the targeted ethnic group.

 Ethnic Cleansing: Encyclopedia Article
Ethnic cleansing is a sub-type of population cleansing, one that involves the forcible removal of members of an ethnic group from a particular locality.
Many of the underlying factors associated with ethnic cleansings are common to the motivational, etiological and interactive contexts of other types of cleansings, as in those where the demarcation lines are drawn on the basis of religion, culture or nationality.
Ethnic and other population cleansings are likely to persist for as long as such social fissures constitute significant sources of personal and group identity.

 Chinese Ethnic Minorities
The largest group, the Han, make up over 92% of China's vast population, and it is the elements of Han civilization that world considers "Chinese culture." Yet, the 55 ethnic minorities, nestled away on China's vast frontiers, maintain their own rich traditions and customs, and all are part of Chinese culture.
Even though the modern concept of 56 ethnic groups is often considered an arbitrary and conservative summary of the hundreds of diverse peoples in China, it pales in comparison to the simplicity by which the ancient Han people distinguished their nomadic neighbors.
Although over 400 minority groups answered a call to register, studies found that there was a lot of overlapping, and a significant number of groups that claimed to be separate were actually the same with different names.

 VDARE.com: 10/03/04 - Where Dawkins Fears To Tread: Ethnic Nepotism And The Reality Of Race
But perhaps the most interesting is the most fundamental: the theory of "ethnic nepotism." This explains the tendency of humans to favor members of their own racial group by postulating that all animals evolve toward being more altruistic toward kin in order to propagate more copies of their common genes.
The term "ethnic nepotism" was introduced in the 1981 book The Ethnic Phenomenon by Pierre L. van den Berghe, a white sociologist born in the old Belgian colony of the Congo.
So, the genetic basis for ethnic nepotism with each racial group is roughly as strong on average as the etymologically classic case of nepotism among close kin—the uncle-nephew bond.

 Macedonia News - Stabilizing Relations Between Ethnic Macedonians by Victor Bivell
The relationship between ethnic Macedonians and ethnic Albanians in the Republic of Macedonia has been a source of concern for many years, but it is unlikely to be resolved by ad hoc or piecemeal concessions by either side.
One option is to nominate a target: for example a long term target of returning the ethnic Albanian proportion to its 1971 level of 13 per cent, or perhaps more acceptably, a target of returning the ethnic Macedonian proportion of the total population to its 1961 level of 71.2 per cent.
For ethnic Macedonians, it will guarantee that they will preserve their only homeland, demonstrate the bona fides of the ethnic Albanians in Macedonia, and create a safe climate in which human rights can advance for all citizens.

Although they are rarely referred to in studies of ethnic businesses, children can provide valuable sources of labor and support in immigrant families running ethnic businesses.
Therefore, in order to gain a full understanding of the nature and terms of young peoples' labour in ethnic businesses, it is necessary to explore the intersections of family relationships and obligations, work strategies, and senses of cultural identity, against the background of their families' experiences of migration and ethnic minority status.
Family involvement in ethnic businesses cannot be assumed to be automatically available or unproblematic, for there may be social costs entailed in their labor participation.
