In Houston, where we have a good economy (best in the country?), the town is 3:3:3:1 white/black/hispanic/asian. And no one (when I was there) cared. The economy...the fact that you can get rich by working hard regardless of race...trumped all the race issues. Race is an issue that comes up in times of scarcity... and scarcity is LARGELY government generated. If you fix the government's doing stupid shit to create artificial scarcity, the race issue vanishes...and everyone works hard to make money and make their own family happy. If the government has LOTS of rules to make it so folks can't work and get wealthy....then we have race problems. Race issues are fundamentally about scarcity...and when you're in the business of wealth CREATION, scarcity isn't very relevant.
