Why are there no majority black/hispanic first world countries?

They’re all either majority white or Asian.

Update:

Of the 24, 22 are predominantly white and the others are Japan and South Korea.

    Well I think that you're looking a the big picture while missing out on a lot of details.

    First of all, there's a lot of poverty in first world countries, and a lot of wealthy people in third world ones.  

    Then, first world nations don't want third world ones to become richer because this means they'll become poorer. That's why businessmen from first world nations opt to transfer their manufacturing to places with cheap labour. Nobody wants to lose money here.

    In terms of pollution, we'd need like 7 Earths to sustain everybody if all people lived like your average U.S. American. So people from poorer nations have a less negative impact on the planet, which is a positive thing.

    Also, it's not that people from first world nations are better off altogether: they just have smaller infant mortality rates and a slightly longer lifespan thanks to medicine.

    Hispanics/Latinos come from Spain, which is considered a First World Country. The Americas are still mainly American/White/Red, including USA/Canada and most of The Caribbean. China is a Third World communist country. Persian countries now outpace China and are largely capitalist. Non-Chinese Asian countries now outpace China and are also largely capitalist. Europe and The UK are increasingly Eastern European. Africa is increasingly Persian.

      China is Third World communist, yes, and its trains always break when they even really run. Hopefully, they don't break while they're actually really moving at their claimed "high speed"!! 8O

    Because colonial powers built infrastructure to export stuff rather than to provide for the local population.

    There are no countries, counties, cities or towns that are black or Hispanic majority and first world.

    Blacks and hispanic are too violent to build a advance civilization.

    You mean other then the modern European countries that make up Hispania?

    update - I just saw your comment that used the word LatinX ... You must be a dumb blond. Valle Latina is a different area located in Europe. The Latins built the city of Rome, that's the same Romans who conquered most of Europe. They are unquestionably the historic superpower of all western civilizations.

    Spaniards are Hispanic and Spain is listed as a first world country by the UN.  The second largest economy (China) is not considered first world. 

    Most of Africa was controlled by European countries until after WW2 so they were exploited for their raw materials.

      LOL Japan was nuked twice during WW2 & developed much faster than Africa in the same space of time.
