new word

Posted this in a thread about new words, but realised its a v. old thread.. cross posting to here to see if anyone has heard of the word..

I came across a new word a few days ago, seemed to be in common use from the (spoken) context but not yet documented - dysethnicsia - to describe the mixing up of people from different ethnic groups, or the lumping together of a range of ethnicities due to their similar appearance or similar sounding names of their nations, obviously inspired by dyslexia and dyspraxia..

Seems to fill a gap as can't think of another single English word that could take its place.. Wonder if anyone has seen it in print?

If Google AND Wikipedia don't know it, it ain't a word! You need to write a Wikipedia article.

Seems Wiktionary might be a better place for a short definition.. going to look for other sources first, think there must be some written use of it

There is already a word for this.

I was going to say racism, but that works as well.
