European American just doesn’t make sense.

During my senior year of high school we were filling out our College applications, and I remember I had this one friend that really wanted scholarships because she didn’t have a whole lot of money. Since her family moved over here from Germany she figured she could say she was European American. For the rest of the year we had a friend that continued to say to her, “European American just doesn’t make sense.”
