Is sister-in-law racist?

My nephew has beautiful brown eyes and brown hair.  Most of the family is blue eyed.  Being a romantic at heart I said to her, "Ooooh....there must be some Spanish blood in your background!"  Meaning a Latin Lover or Conquistador...which I thought would be exciting.  She replied very nastily that there were plenty of European genetics in her background and that they have brown hair and brown eyes.  She gets very irritated if I suggest a Spanish influence.  Is she racist?
