Race has pretty much shaped American culture, politics, cities and development patterns. If America was a 90+% white country, it would be politically similar to current-day Western Europe countries. Cities would be more urban and built out. Widespread heavy rail in many cities across the country. More liberal etc.

It's why America feels so different from Europe despite the fact that in a lot of ways, America is just another extension of Western Judeo-Christian culture.
