Is there a word for "a person from another race"?
This question has three down-votes and was closed because "Questions that can be answered using commonly-available references are off-topic" and "Questions on choosing an ideal word or phrase must include information on how it will be used in order to be answered."
What type of commonly-available resource answers this question? It is not like a synonym request; you can't look up "of another race" in a thesaurus, and there are no general-reference "reverse dictionaries." I can understand downvoting this question for lack of research, even if I don't agree with it, but it does not seem "general-reference" to me and therefore, I don't think it should have been closed as off-topic. (I know that this close reason was technically changed from "general reference" for a reason, but in this case I don't see why more research is necessary for the question to be on-topic.)
And the question already has information about how it will be used. There are two example sentences, which have in fact been there since the question was first asked. This is good! I don't understand what more context is needed. The intended meaning seems pretty straightforward to me.
Am I missing something? What's going on here?
