<< The term "white boys" in the context of playing blues is often used by
 white boys to describe themselves, particularly in the South.  I think
 Stevie Ray Vaughn and the Allman Bros. have described themselves as
 white boys but I can't find the quotes.  Does anyone else have them?  >>

It is a matter of context and intent.   I have heard many African Americans
use terms
describing themselves that I would never refer to them as.  Get it?  It is
not what you say sometimes but how you say it and what you mean by it that
hurts feelings.
