    Your nationality is probably Canadian. What does it say on your passport?

    Race doesn't really exist. It's a made-up 18th century concept based on superficial appearances.

    Your ethnicity is whichever cultural group you identify with, and whose customs and traditions you follow.

    Race - Human (if you mean ancestry, none of us can tell you because we don't know)

    Nationality - Canadian unless you have dual citizenship

    Ethnicity - Latino, not sure which culture you're more connected with though if at all

    Race? who knows, as all Central American countries have a mix of races covering the spectrum.

    Nationality? probably Canadian.

    Ethnicity? Depends on the degree of assimilation of your parents in their respective countries of origin.

    I think you should concentrate on being Canadian, unless you want to be something else.

    If you do, move there, and be.

      Latina is located in modern Italy, they are the people who built Rome. They had little to do with the colonization of the Americas.

    RACE would be depending on the color of your skin. You could be white if both your Mexican mother and Salvadorian father are white. You could be black. Most likely, however, if you are not white-skinned and blue-eyed, you are Mestizo, which means a mix of white, indian and even black.

    NATIONALITY is Canadian.

    ETHNICITY is more vague. You could be as simple as call yourself Hispanic, to as detailed as Mexican-Salvadorian.

    Nationality is whatever country or countries you have citizenship in.

    Your race would depend. Most Mexicans and Salvadorans are either Native American or mestizo. Mestizos are people who are a mix of Native American and white. However, a considerable proportion of both nationalities are just white.

    As for your ethnicity, you could just say half Mexican and half El Salvadoran. When people ask that question, they typically just mean what your heritage is, so something like "white" or "black" are not ethnicities because they are not specific enough.

    Hope I helped.
