Americans

Americans, or American people, are citizens of the United States of America. This definition also includes certain individuals who are considered to be nationals of the United States of America. The country is home to people of different national or... igins. As a result, Americans do not equate their nationality with ethnicity, but with citizenship. With the exception of the Native American population, generally all Americans or their ancestors immigrated within the past five centuries. Also, there are other groups that did not immigrate to the United States but became American because of American expansion in the late 1800s. These groups are people from Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippine Islands.Despite its multi-ethnic composition, the culture held in common by most Americans is referred to as mainstream American culture, a Western culture largely derived from the traditions of Northern and Western European immigrants. It also includes influences of African-American culture. Westward expansion integrated the Creoles and Cajuns of Louisiana and the Hispanos of the Southwest and brought close contact with the culture of Mexico   more

They constitute approximately 92% of the population of Mainland China, 94% of the population of Hong Kong, 95% of the population of Macau, 98% of the population of Taiwan, 74% of the populatio... n of Singapore, 24.5% of the population of Malaysia, and about 19% of the entire global human population, making them the largest ethnic group in the world.

The Han Chinese are a subset of the Chinese nation. Sometimes Han and other Chinese refer to themselves as the "Descendants of the Yan and Huang Emperors"   more

Hispanic and Latino Americans

Hispanics Spanish: hispanos, hispánicos, or Latinos latinos are an ethnolinguistic group of Americans with origins in the countries of Latin America and Spain. More generally it includes all persons in the United States who self-identify as Hispanic...  or Latino. Latin American population has origins in all the continents and has ancestries including many Native American cultures, Hispanic and Latino Americans are separate terms that are racially diverse, and as a result form an ethnic category, rather than a race. In the 2010 Census, 53% Hispanics in the US self-identified as white, while 37% were Mestizos.While the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably, Hispanic is a narrower term and refers mostly to persons of Spanish-speaking ancestry, while Latino is more frequently used to refer more generally to anyone of Latin American origin or ancestry, including Brazilians. Hispanic thus includes Spanish speaking Latin Americans countries, excluding Brazilians while Latino includes both Spanish-speaking and Portuguese-speaking Latin Americans, but excluding Spain   more
