    White people is a term for a set of human groups, and functions as a color metaphor for race. The definition of “white person” differs according to geographical and historical context, but refers most commonly to people of European descent. Various social constructions of whiteness have had implications in terms of national identity, consanguinity, public policy, religion, population statistics, racial segregation, affirmative action, white privilege, eugenics, racial marginalization and racial quotas. The concept has been applied with varying degrees of formality and internal consistency in disciplines including sociology, politics, genetics, biology, medicine, biomedicine, language, culture, and law.
