What is China White? And Who is Dwight Gooden?
|English translation:a drug and a baseball player, respectively|
FENTANYL (China White)
Fentanyl is a synthetic opiate analgesic. It was developed by P.A. Janssen in 1962. Fentanyl manufactured in illicit labs was first seen on the streets in about 1979.
Dwight Eugene Gooden (born November 16, 1964 in Tampa, Florida), a.k.a. Doc Gooden or Dr. K, an American baseball player, was one of the most feared pitchers in the National League in the middle and late 1980s.
Of course, China White can also refer to a type of tea, so you'll have to decide based on your context.

chine white/Dwight Gooden
China White is... Heroin; fentanyl; synthetic heroin
as for Dwight Gooden, he was a baseball star. The speaker just wants to emphasize his point. He, obviously is not Dwight Gooden and this obviously isn't ...china white. :-)
