    British is a nationality and English,Scotish and Welsh are ethnicities in my opinion.
    I think that those are equally nationalities, they tell you nothing about a person's make-up

    I got some guy on here telling me that British isn't an ethnicity. I'm like what?
    No it is... my friend is British and she's mixed with something else.
    A few of my neighbours are British as well.

    False. English is a nationality. Anyone of any colour can be English. English means from England. Welsh means from Wales. Emeli Sande is Scottish. But she is black. Idris Elba is English. He is black. This is simple stuff, folks.

    Anglo Saxon is an ethnicity. Apart of the white race. English is a nationality, and so is British. It's just more specific. English doesn't mean white. Nor does British. Saying English is an ethnicity is like saying being from an American state is an ethnicity.
    Celtic is an ethnicity. Apart of the white race. Irish is a nationality.

    Oromo is an ethnicity. African is a race. Ethiopian is a nationality.
    Maroon is an ethnicity. Apart of the African race. Jamaican is a nationality.

    Hanguk-in is a Korean ethnicity. Apart of the Asian race. Korean is a nationality.

    Hanguk-in is a Korean ethnicity. Apart of the Asian race. Korean is a nationality.

    Anglo Saxon is an ethnicity? Aren't they German?

    From my knowledge of Korean, doesn't Hanguk-in mean Korean person in Korean? Korean is an ethnicity.

    Anglo Saxons are British, the Germanic tribe who settled there. Anglo is England. This is so easy to find on Google, I mean...

    Hanguk-in is what it translates to, but it refers to the ethnic group of Korean people, the same way Han does for certain Chinese peoples.

    And no Korean is not an ethnicity. I can move to Korea right now, have me a kid, and that child is Korean. But are we Hanguk-In? No. Korea is a place. Making it a nationality. Not ethnicity.

    I'm too lazy to read wikipedia's page on it.

    Then you and your kid will be Korean nationals... that's what I'm saying. Let me ask my Korean friends if they call themselves Korean by ethnicity then.

    What am I "on about?"

    He can't even speak proper English and probably doesn't understand. Also I said we're done here. The dictionary definition of ethnicity and nationality will let you know that a place isn't an ethnicity. Let's not argue semantics and "argue" another example since you're hung up over Korean.

    Ethiopian? Is that an ethnicity?

    He searched the word up before sending his messages. Don't you dare go against the facts with your righteous attitude. It's quite idiotic.
    I don't know enough about Ethiopia to argue on their defense.
    Korean is an ethnicity though, that's for sure. I'm done with you.

    "Don't you dare." "Righteous." "idiotic." I already told you an hour ago I was done with you. And you don't care about Ethiopia, that's fine, but you can't answer the question because you were the one who didn't understand any of this in the first place.

    Since you're still confused we'll end it here:
    ethnicity is not nationality.

    An ethnic group or ethnicity is a socially defined category of people who identify with each other based on common ancestral, social, cultural or national experience.
    So I'm not confusing anything with anything. Tribes is ethnicity.
    My point was asking OP to see if they would see ethnicity or nationality. They seem like the type to say Ethiopian is an ethnicity. It's not.

    I'm able to differentiate nationality and ethnicity clearly now but that person doesn't even seem to understand the grounds she's arguing for.
