st: loop within a loop

I am trying to create a loop within a loop for the following block of
code (loop through variables white, black, hispanic, asian, and mixed
from values 1 to 5):

generate white=0
replace white=1 if eth==1
generate black=0
replace black=1 if eth==2
generate hispanic=0
replace hispanic=1 if eth==3
generate asian=0
replace asian=1 if eth==4
generate mixed=0
replace mixed=1 if eth==5

I know decode would be easier, but please consider responding to help
me out learning how to loop.

I'm relatively new to Stata, so any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Adam Guerrero
