Yes, in the same way as Hispanic is. "Race" can refer to two different things, which back when the world was larger used to be much more parallel than they are now: ancestry and culture. You're thinking that it means "a certain set of physical traits"; that's linked to but not equal to the ancestry definition. So is referring to Americans of Polish descent as "Polish".
