He says, "Rock ain’t nothing but a white version of rhythm and blues."

Well, that's true. But, why even say that? Does he mean it as a pejorative? If so, should we say jazz is just black guys jamming on mostly white orchestra instruments? What about bluegrass?

All music interelates. Rock could well be "white" R&B, but R&B song structure comes largely out of white folk music, not African tribal music.

I prefer Miles Davis' take: there's only two kinds of music. Good music and bad music.
