72.In Britain the term ’ethnic’ is applied to cuisine, clothing, music and neighbourhoods to designate practices that are ‘non-British’. Is it right or not? In Great Britain, the term "ethnicity" is used, as a rule, in relation to cultural customs and traditions that differ from the "original" British customs. In a broad sense, the term "ethnic" is used in relation to such various phenomena as cuisine, clothing, music, and neighbors in the place of residence and means customs that appear to be "non-English." The use of ethnic labels in such a generalized form is fraught with danger and can lead to the opposition of "us" and "them" in those regions where certain parts of the population are perceived as "ethnic" and others do not. In conclusion I want to say that , it is do not try . Because it breeds nationalism. For example: Some researchers discover the origins of Nazi philosophy in the imperialist ideology and practice of the British Empire. According to Sarkisyants, the real Nazi teacher was the English philosopher Thomas Carlyle. 73.Frequently, physical differences such as skin colour are the defining factor in designating an ethnic minority. Is it right? Ethnic groups are groups that are identified mainly by cultural principle - based on language, folk customs, clothing, gestures, behavior, or religion. In Russia, examples of ethnic groups are Jews, Yakuts, Buryats, etc.Physical differences such as skin color are often a decisive factor in identifying ethnic minorities. Until the end of the XIX century, "classic racism" bluntly declared the superiority of "white people." But today there is a division of people according to skin color. This is not correct. EXAMPLE: A racial minority has lived in Yemen for centuries - the Akhdmas, who are the same Arab- speaking Muslims as the rest of the Yemenis, but differ in racial characteristics - in particular, darker skin color. Akhdams are at the bottom of the social hierarchy. Marriages between Akhdams and the rest of Yemenis are strictly taboo. But today there is a division of people according to skin color. This is not correct. EXAMPLE: A racial minority has lived in Yemen for centuries - the Akhdmas, who are the same Arab-speaking Muslims as the rest of the Yemenis, but differ in racial characteristics - in particular, darker skin color. The Ahdams are at the bottom of the social hierarchy. Marriages between Akhdam and the rest of Yemenis are taboo. The reality is that racism against blacks is a global phenomenon, and under different conditions it looks different, but You will listen to examples of such experience and see them, you will understand that racism is obvious and widespread throughout the world. In Brazil, we see more and more unarmed black people dying as a result of the actions of law enforcement agencies. In places like France, thousands of homeless black people from Africa seeking asylum are forced to set up their own refugee camps under the bridges of Paris. They have no sanitary conditions or food. People kicked out. This is an example of racial injustice. Blacks are abused in Asia and in many other places around the world. For example

    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.
