Presumably ony really BLUE if you have your Windoze colour temperature correct.

I was very keen on the blues when I was about 17 to about 22, but came to the realisation that its core alienation was more substantial than (to borrow a title) the White Middle Class Blues.

I can still admire, but recognise that my roots (and other limitations) will not let me effectively contribute.

Was it Muddy Waters who said "Those white boys want to play the blues real bad. And that's how they play them: bad."

Muddy Waters employed a very talented and soulful white guy, Bob Margolin, as his lead guitar player for many years. I think Muddy was scoffing at some white boys trying to play the blues, not all of us.

I believe that The Blues is a basically universal musical language that can be performed by anyone who really understands it, regardless of complexion. Many black folks have lost interest in the form, in many cases for sociological rather than musical reasons, and many white folks have come to love it.

Now, I cannot deny that there are white "wannabes" who haven't a clue and who embarrasss themselves and others with their lame-ass efforts to mimic real blues artistry. But simple being of European descent does not disqualify a person from understanding and communicating this or any other genre of music.
