In Destiny, "Races" are really more like "Species". Sort of. I mean, are the Awoken a separate species from humans? I'm not sure. But either way, they're defined here. You'll see Exo, Awoken, and Human as examples of these Species. Players will choose one for their character.

genderedRaceNames Dictionary<DestinyGender:Enum,string> A localized string referring to the singular form of the Race's name when referred to in gendered form. Keyed by the DestinyGender.

redacted boolean If this is true, then there is an entity with this identifier/type combination, but BNet is not yet allowed to show it. Sorry!
