Quick Guide:

Race: social construct based arbitrarily on ancestry and phenotype.

Ethnicity: social construct based on heritage and culture.

Nationality: Citizenship in country of birth or naturalization.

These are not the same.

They can overlap between & within each other.
Example:

Race: Black, White, Asian, Indigenous Americans etc.

Ethnicity: Latinx, Hispanic, West Indian, Black American, Igbo, Greek.

Nationality: American, French, Camboadian, Ghanaian, Greek.
Note: Individual countries can fall under both an ethnicity and a nationality as seen above with Greek.

For instance, someone can be both ethnically Nigerian and a citizen of Nigeria. Or they can be one or the other.

But nationalities and ethnicities ARE NOT races.
Note: Latinx/Hispanic are not races. They are ethnicities made up of several individual races and race mixtures.

For instance, Afro-Latinx people identifying as black, White Latinx people identifying as white, wholly indigenous Latinx people & everything outside and in between.
Note: Latinx and Hispanic are distinct terms that have A TON of overlap but aren't actually interchangeable.

Hispanic refers to language, people with Spanish speaking origins. Latinx refers to a geographical location distinguished by historical conquest by the Spanish/Portuguese
Which is basically Mexico, Central America, South America, and parts of the Caribbean.

Now as I said, there's a ton of overlap. In fact most countries are both. But the distinction can be seen with 3 countries: Spain, Portugal, & Brazil.
Brazil, as a country colonized by the Portuguese and where Portuguese is the primarily spoken language, would not be Hispanic.

Spain and Portugal, as countries located in Europe and not the Americas, would not be Latinx.
With that said, I'd like yall to go forth and prosper. Or at the very least not make yourself look silly on here.
