Other significant groups include Koreans, Chinese, Paraguayans and Bolivians.

Famous quotes containing the word race:

    Ah, little road, brown as my race is brown,
    Your trodden beauty like our trodden pride,
    Dust of the dust, they must not bruise you down.
    Rise to one brimming golden, spilling cry!
    Helene Johnson (b. 1907)
