Not a Race, Still a Human

I’m a very Irish child, and being proud of that has always been hard due to the fact I have red hair and freckles. While most say, “oh but you’re white, whats the problem” the problem is just that. I have been bullied and teased almost my whole life and not being able to fight it because your own race degrades you, but if I were to say not to be mean to “gingers” they say you’re not a race, sometimes they say not people at all, and to just deal with it. I’m stuck at a cross roads where many sub-groups have found themselves, where they cannot find comfort in their own but can’t seek understanding of those who have it “worse”.
