Since the very notion of "race" is highly controversial, if you need a classification based on some sort of ethnicity I think you have to define your own categories.

Objet: Element <race> or <ethnicity> in prosopographic descriptions?
I am wondering why there is no tag to store information about race or
ethnicity to describe a person using <person>.
The TEI counts with specific elements such as <faith> and <sex> and also
more vague elements such as <trait> and <state>.
How are we supposed to encode this *basic* of information? Is it
recommended the use of <trait>, <note type=“race”> or maybe I should just
extend the vocabulary on my own?
