My ethnicity is Mexican and German. People always ask me "What are you", which is offensive because....why do they need to know? Is there a "wrong" answer for them? I used to be asked that a lot in school but it's gotten less over the years. Usually other hispanics ask me that and once I say I'm half white, that's all they see, me as a white girl (even though I think I don't look that white). And I think most white people just assume that I'm fully Mexican.
