"white" is a historical category, it does not apply to all places or times. I think you'd be hard pressed to find anyone here who calls holocaust or holodomor victims "white." Genocide is also a very specific term, and I cannot think of a historical instance where genocide against white LGBT or disabled people was perpetrated, but maybe I just don't know of it.

i'm part jewish and the descendant of holocaust victims and i would definitely identify as white; my ancestors who suffered under the nazis certainly did not. and the nazis didn't consider them white either. this is what kore means by calling "white" a historical category -- whiteness as an identity accessible to some jews only really happened in the latter half of the 20th century
