Laowai 老外

is a term used to describe everyone that is not Chinese.

It sometimes just means foreigner, but it’s the more politically incorrect term.  It generally just denotes white or foreigners from European decent.
The term is usually uttered with disdain dripping from their voice.
Even if a Chinese person is in a foreign country, the native European can still be called a 老外 because they are not ethnically Chinese.
