If German and Irish aren't white what the hell are they?

I asked a girl if she was full white once and she said "I'm not white at all" so when I asked her what she was she said she was German and Irish. Uhhh.

  • LOL. My grandmother was Irish and my grandfather was Italian. When asked what race I am, I say white, lol. My skin is white, that makes me white.

  • LOL...imo that was more of hit at being PC. Its not very "PC" to call someone "black"...they have to be African American, even if they nor any ancestor in the last 250 years has set a food in Africa. I think what she was going for is the same thing just, being white.
