I think he’s trying to imply that since she’s ethnically not-White, she must be culturally not-White as well.

The trouble is that this implies that since Diane Kruger is white and her biggest role in English has been Sonya Cross in The Bridge, then she must be American. To get to that conclusion, you have to ignore that the character is supposed to be from Texas and that Kruger is actually German (she affects a strange “generic” accent, which is noticeable when the show is set in El Paso and Juárez).
