Not white, I am Celtic American.

I am from Irish, Welsh and Scottish grandparents and don’t identify with other cultures that are grouped White/Caucasian. I am proud of my heritage and refuse to check the box, always write in Celtic American.

    Lovely. This captures the falsity of race quite nicely. White, black, asian, latino.. are very impersonal terms that serve only to put people in boxes and make assumptions about background, privileges, and lifestyles.
