"You're not all white, are you."

This is usually how people approach me about what race I am. I always forget how it is such a big deal to people to find out "what" I am until I have to meet a whole bunch of new people in a row, and since I've started my new job I have been confronted cooooonstantly about "what" I am. It actually doesn't bother me as much as it used to, at least when not-white people ask me. But! Twice in the same day I had two different people try to argue that I AM white. Huh? One guy I work with argued that I'm really white because I speak very little Spanish, and my boyfriend argued that I'm white because I'm "100% European." So what the fuck? I'm Portuguese (Roma) German (Jews) and Puerto Rican (family lived in Puerto Rico but they were from Spain). Am I white? Can I give the finger (again) to all those people who slurred at me because I'm ACTUALLY WHITE? Can I go back in time and explain to people who called my grandma racial slurs that my grandmother is white, too? XD I don't even know with this shit, anymore.
