In terms of protection from discrimination, "race" includes not just DNA, but colour, nationality, and ethnic of national origins, and a person may belong simultaneously to more than one "racial" group. So, for example, a person born to English parents who grows up in Wales and considers themselves Welsh, would be protected from discrimination whether they suffer from discrimination because of their biological English origins, or because they are culturally Welsh.
The above explanation of the law is only an overview and in order to be reasonably concise I have had to leave some details out - details which are likely to affect what the law would say about your own situation. So please do not rely on the above but Contact me for advice
