No, by white I meant white.
South Americans can be many things. White, Caribbean, native, black, a bit of two or all three, etc.
But we're talking of the USA. The largest minority is black folk. They really don't play too much tennis. But look at them in football/basketball. Anyway, the comment is just an innocent remark speaking of a central truth. Venus and Serena have reached out to the black community in America, and encouraged a lot girls to take up racquets. James Blake could further that, and do a lot to encourage black boys to take up the game.
