CfD nomination of Category:United States ghettos
If you go back over the past week or 10 days, you'll find a lot of categories involving people with different ethnic descents (African-American, Chinese, Japanese, Hispanic, Indian, etc.) have been proposed for deletion, merging or renaming. I thought members of this WikiProject might want to register an opinion, pro or con. Here is the latest:
..but if you look through Wikipedia:Categories for discussion for the past few weeks, you'll find a lot more that have been nominated. I look forward to your participation. Liz Read! Talk! 22:06, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
Reviving this project
Women by Ethnicity nominated for deletion.
Category:Women by ethnicity is being considered for deletion. Anybody interested in commenting, can do so at Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2013_November_4#Category:Women_by_ethnicity.
I see that Baltic Germans has been added to this project. The Baltic Germans were not an ethnic group, more of a social group, being educated traders. As the article says, "It should be noted that in the course of their 700 year history, Baltic German families often had not only ethnic German roots, but also mixed with peoples of non-German origin, such as native Estonians, Livonians and Latvians, as well as with Danes, Swedes, English, Scots, Poles, Dutch, Hungarians."

"Ethnic" does not imply a homogeneous origin. An ethnic group is "a socially defined category of people who identify with each other based on a shared social experience". As a social group they still qualify, though the lever of intermarriages in the group should probably be mentioned. Dimadick (talk) 09:47, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
