What is 'Race' or 'Color' as Used in Anti-Discrimination Laws?

Both Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 ("Title VII") and the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act ("TCHRA") prohibit discrimination against an employee because of the employee's race or color. See 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-2(a)(1); Tex. Lab. Code § 21.051. However, neither Title VII nor the TCHRA define "race" or "color." So, what exactly is race and color discrimination? Fortunately, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") has issued guidance on the definition of these terms.
