Ethnicity Ethnicity refers to the characteristics of a group based on shared cultural identity and derived from a common language, nationality, religion, or ancestry. • Ethnic groups in the United States include a grouping that we refer to collectively as Hispanics or Latinos, including Chicanos (Mexican Americans), Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and other Latin Americans in the United States. White ethnics (e.g., Irish Americans, Polish Americans, and Norwegian Americans) are also included in this category. • The cultural traits that make groups distinctive usually originate from the “homeland” or, for Jews, from a long history of being segregated and prohibited from becoming a part of the host society. Once in the United States, an ethnic group may maintain distinctive cultural practices through associations and clubs, as well as establishing ethnic enclaves such as Little Italy in urban areas.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
