    “CORRECTION” Even considering basque like a different ethnicity you should put Spanish Basque because Spanish it´s his nationality (like when you put Mexican Spanish or African American). Appart from that,Alonso, his first surname it´s not basque at all, so his ethniticity should be Spanish Basque and Spanish.
