She saw herself as 'Irish-born Chinese' and lamented the assimilation of Chinese immigrants into Irish culture until all of a sudden it became racist to question whether she was as Irish as you or me.
If you acknowledge that someone from a foreign culture who refuses to assimilate into your own culture is as Irish as yourself you've admitted that Irish culture is no more Irish than Chinese.

In telling us to regard immigrants as equally Irish as ourselves they're telling us to make void the historic nation.
