(C) because many residents of the Southeast do not have the same ethnic heritage as

Gotta be (C), because of the usage of the word share.

You might "share an ethnic heritage with" someone, but you don't "share the same ethnic heritage as" someone.

Instead you'd have the same ethnic heritage as someone. Kind of a subtle point.

Another illustration:

Correct: Bob and I shared a pizza. OR, I shared a pizza with Bob.
Not correct: I shared the same pizza as Bob.

(A) because many residents of the Southeast do not share the same ethnic heritage as
(B) because many residents of the Southeast do not share the same ethnic heritage with
(C) because many residents of the Southeast do not have the same ethnic heritage as

The remain of my elimination is (A) and (C) because its idiom have 'the same ... as'. (A) is wrong because of guy above said about the meaning of verb 'share' when go with 'the same ...heritage'

(A) because many residents of the Southeast do not share the same ethnic heritage as
(B) because many residents of the Southeast do not share the same ethnic heritage with
(C) because many residents of the Southeast do not have the same ethnic heritage as
(D) due to many residents of the Southeast not sharing the same ethnic heritage with
(E) whereas many residents of the Southeast do not share the same ethnic heritage as

whereas is used to show contrast, no constrast here. E is gone
due to mean caused by. so caused by refers to two variery. not logic
the same with is not idiomatic.

share the same is redundant. share heritage is good.

C is left
