A community or population made up of people who share a common cultural background or race. An example of an Ethnic group is Asian people.
A Religious group is a group of people that share a common religion or common beliefs. An example of a religious group is Christians. The difference between a religious group and ethnic group is that you can control your beliefs and religion but you are born into an ethnic group and have no control over it.
