How do you determine what skin type you have? Is it to do with the country you're from?.. I'm white, Irish and have no idea what category I'd give me skin.

I'm not 100% what you are asking, there are fitzpatrick skin types which go by the color or pigment in the skin, they there are skin types as in oily, or sensative skin. Fitzpatrick skin types are used more in laser.

I wonder when "Fitzpatrick skin types" is going to become politically incorrect?

about the same time that everyone including the taxman, even when looking at all of my information or holding an ID, stop calling me sir. When that happens, we can talk about "politically correct".
