In conclusion we can say that ethnicity is where you come from what is your background and ancestors. However, this is something that most people don’t respect rather they make fun of people’s ethnicity. What they don’t take in consideration is that something that might be funny for one person could be seriously offensive for another. We don't blame this people because since they were kids tv and films make fun of certain groups of people which have influenced in the adults they are now at days. We believe that instead of making fun of this persons we should respect were they come from and consider that we are all different but no one is better that the other.
