(5 points) Answer below: The concept of hybrid ethnicity is used to refer to a person that exhibits cultural and physical characteristics of more than 1 ethnic group of people. Jewish Americans and Arab Americans are a good example of hybrid ethnicity. Both of these groups of people are well assimilated into the American culture. For example, Jewish Americans and Arab Americans marry outside of their groups in large numbers, serve in the US military, and obtain positions of wealth and power. Some members of these groups will exhibit American culture as well as their Jewish or Arab culture. An example of this is would be an Arab girl who wears designer cloths and drives a fancy car at school, but when she is at home with her parents she wears a hijab and observes strict customs. Hybrid ethnicity can become more common with increased prejudice or discrimination such as seen with Arab Americans after the events of September 11, 2001. (Myers, 2007)
