Interesting question.

If you mean has a white man ever held the World record for the 100m then yes. Was the holder faster than a man who was not white - don't know.

Yes when African or africanamerican men were not allowed to compete in the Olympics. there was a white man who was the fastest! there will be a white man in the future who will possess the title of the fasted white man in the world. 40 in 4.1 and 100 in 9.875. . which is a accomplishment While there will be man of color 3.99 in 40 and 9.12 in the 100 in the future since Africa is hosting the soccer championship in 2010. in my opinion.
