    Default Wikipedia on Danes

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danes

    Danes (Danish: danskere, pronounced [ˈtnskɐɐ]) are a North Germanic ethnic group native to Denmark This connection may be ancestral, legal, historical, or cultural.

    Danes generally regard themselves as a nationality and reserve the word "ethnic" for the description of recent immigrants, sometimes referred to as "new Danes". The contemporary Danish ethnic identity is based on the idea of "Danishness", which is founded on principles formed through historical cultural connections and is not based on racial heritage

    Officially the same in France, then you got identity crisis everyday on tv/radio/newspapers because races aren't supposed to exist but they exist as the same time.

    Well, I don't see anything bad in it. If immigrants integrate to local culture and live with local standards then it's all fine.
    Problem may be just with fact that most many Danish immigrants(but it can be told about immigrants anywhere) don't integrate too into local culture and customs

    It's bad, they deny biological concept of ethnicity based on heritage. Political and ethnic identity aren't the same.

    They can find out whether someone was a Dane, an Anglo Saxon, or a Norwegian based off of DNA in the skeletons as well as Taxonomy and other such methods (Norwegians were the shortest Vikings and were lower in average height than Danes or Anglo Saxons, who were about the same). This alone seems to me that it would be enough to prove the unique ethnic identity of the Danes.

    From that, I understand some ethnic identities are culture-based, on the other hand some are DNA-based. However it is Wikipedia, where you can freely register and change the statement according to your own idea.

    Ethnic identities are never culture based, except in dreams of radical left. Civic/political identity is another thing.
    You can't be black and ethnic Danish, but you can feel and identify as politically Danish.

    You are probably right, but the issue is not important in my opinion.

    It's just one of factors of ethnicity, other one is cultural factor which here is defined by "Danishness". It can also define some traditions and using speaking Danish as well.
    There are more criteria of course but still the idea is not that bad.

    Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth was also known as multicultural place which was free from religious war, everyone was respecting laws and it worked, each person living in Lithuanian part could be called "Lithuanian" no matter if the person was ethnically Ruthenian, Jewish, Polish, Tatar, Russian, Armenian, German or Lithuanian. And no, it wasn't so strong factor that lead to partitions, the only minority that wanted more and more were Cossacks. That's example that it can work somehow.

    It was up to Danish people to decide like that and making thread won't change anything, I was stating my opinion, you stated yours and that's great.
