Aryan, African and Caucasian etc and unfortunately- in many western countries racial prejudice is present in subtle forms even now albeit it being legally abolished. That's what is called policy of Apartheid.If you wish to thank me for this reply please click the "thank You" button on my profile

According to 'American Heritage Dictionary',Race is defined as-

 

1. A group of people identified as distinct from other groups because of supposed physical or genetic traits shared by the group. Most biologists and anthropologists do not recognize race as a biologically valid classification, in part because there is more genetic variation within groups than between them.
2. A group of people united or classified together on the basis of common history, nationality, or geographic distribution: the Celtic race.
3. A genealogical line; a lineage.
4. Humans considered as a group.
 
 
According to 'Collins Cobuild Dictionary' race is defined as-
 
A race is one of the major groups which human beings can be divided into according to their physical features,such as color of their skin.
 
 
According to 'Concise Law Dictionary' race is defined as-
 
Tribe,nation or people regarded as common stock;one of the greatest divisions of mankind having certain physical peculiarities in common
 
 
Therefore,we can conclude that Ordinarily 'Race' means and includes 'People having certain common physical features'
 
 
Hope that suffice.
 
 
Further If needed.
