A “white girl” with a unique heritage

I hate the term “typical white girl”. Why does a girl whose taste buds enjoy pumpkin spice lattes have to be categorized automatically in some stupid stereotype? I may be “white”, but my heritage is so much more than just a typical white girl. My veins are flowing with the blood of my family going back centuries; Irish, German, Native American(Cherokee), Spanish, black dutch, and english…When did a wonderful heritage such as this become such a rude stereotype of #basicwhitegirl? I have been rooted in my multi-faceted heritage since I was born, and I’m not basic, I’m me.
