The 15th amendment reads:

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

So couldn’t people be prevented from voting say for being some ethnicity that the government doesn’t want to vote or does the Supreme Court interpret “race” to include ethnicity in this context?
