So, what is "white"?

"Is Sophia Vergara White?" is still the most visited post on this blog (I'm still not sure it isn't just for the picture).  So, is the guy in the picture white?  He says not:

“I’m not even f*cking white, so how am I a superior race?” he asked rhetorically. “I’m Spanish, listen: ‘Puerto Ricano.'”

Do people from Spain recognize Puerto Ricans as "Spanish"?  Do they recognize themselves as white?

By the way, this guy marched with the KKK in Charlotesville and bragged about beating up a black teenager.  So whatever he is, he's certainly a racist.

But is he white?

Oh, these problems of categories.....
