What is Ethnicity? Profession

Ethnicity and culture are sometimes used interchangeably but in the main perspective, they are different.

Ethnicity is a social construction that indicates identification with a particular group which is often descended from common ancestors. Its members share common cultural traits.

For example : They share the same language, religion and dress and they are an identifiable minority within the larger nation.
