Ethnicity Legend

I had intended to use graphics of kids from It’s a Small World to depict the ethnic groups represented at ACLC, but instead chose to use varying professional athletes.  For those unfamiliar with some of the faces and their corresponding ethnic background, this legend should prove useful:

pmanning.gif 
White — Peyton Manning, NFL Football Player (you’ll be seeing a lot of Peyton)

mjordan.gif
African American — Michael Jordan, NBA Basketball Legend (I believe this photo is from his Washington Wizards days)

odelahoya.gif
Latino — Oscar de la Hoya, Olympic Gold Medal Boxer (and Grammy nominated pop star, although heck if I know any of his work)

jthorpe.gif
Native American/Alaskan Native — Jim Thorpe, Olympic Gold Medalist, professional basketball, football, and baseball player (sort of like Bo Jackson, but better)

eamano.gif
Filipino — Eugene Amano,  NFL Football Player

mbhardwaj.gif
East Indian — Mohini Bhardwaj, Olympic gymnast, of course East Asian gets shuffled under the larger “Asian” category

Chinese — Michelle Kwan, Olympic Figure Skater, and Chinese gets shuffled under the larger “Asian” category as well.

mwie.gif
Korean — Michelle Wie, Professional Golfer, Korean, Asian category, etc…

dnguyen.gif
Vietnamese — Dat Nguyen, former NFL player, Vietnamese, Asian category, etc…

kyamaguchi.gif
Japanese — Kristi Yamaguchi, Olympic gold medal figure skater, Japanese, Asian category, etc…

kdim.gif
Cambodian — Kris Dim, Bodybuilder, Cambodian, Asian category, etc…

tmastney.gif
Other Asian — Tom Mastny, ML Baseball player, is actually Indonesian but will fill in for the “Other Asian” category and is under the larger “Asian” category

jseau.gif
Samoan — Junior Seau, NFL Football Player, Samoan is probably under the “Pacific Islander” category for official reporting purposes.

Bi-racial — Tiger Woods, Professional Golfer, Tiger is filling in for the bi-racial African American kids who have been reported as simple “African American” rather than “Multiple” or even ACLC’s own “Multiracialethnic”
