Ethnicity and Tribe

Africa is the second largest continent, divided into a collection of post-colonial "sovereign" nations populated with a variety of ethnic groups, not tribes. Fulani are 20 million strong (guess) that is not a tribe. The label tribe only seems to apply to non-European Ethnic groups. And comes with a notion of backwardness and non-modern values.

Also ethnic when used as "exotic" is also incorrect because it normalizes European culture, placing all other cultures on the outside of this "standard human culture." In this instances, ethnic, exist as some "exotic" trite sub-culture, for and only the entertainment destination of European cultural tourist.
