    It is from Lebanon, which is a nation, so Lebanese would be a nationality.

    As for race, Lebanese people are olive-skinned caucasians.

    It's an ethnic group and a nationality. But most Lebanese consider themselves either Assyrian, Arabic or Christian. They don't use the term Lebanese quite so much.
