in terms of 'ethnic' gamers I have personally gamed with a family of Ojibwa nerds, the gaming store I frequent has a asian woman I regularly rap with about L5R. But the single most memorable encounter I have had with an ethnic gamer is as follows:

I was standing at a crosswalk waiting for the light to change and up rolls the most stereotypical black dude you can imagine: gangsta rapper clothes in a car straight out of pimp my ride (spinnin' rims, pinstripes, the whole 9 yards) blaring hip-hop with the bass too loud and hanging off his rear-view mirror are a pair of fuzzy d20's. I gave him an approving nod. This was the extent of our interaction. I bet he rolled dwarves.
