Wait, when did hispanic and white people become African? Other than the theory that anatomically modern humans first appeared in Africa and spread from there. But if you're referring to the current population than you are severely mistaken about your demographics. I'll respond with Nerox's post.

It's difficult to find a specific site for all ethnicities, as the United States' Census doesn't record religious affiliation. I did a quick google search for African American muslims and the first site given was "blackdemographics.com" so take from that what you will. But here's the layout they gave as of 2008:
Baptist - 45%
Catholic - 6%
Mainline Christian - 7%
Christian Generic - 15%
Pentecostal/Charismatic - 7%
Protestant Denomination - 6%
Mormon/ Latter - 0%
Jewish/Judaism - 0%
Eastern Religions - 0%
Muslim/Islam - 1%
New /Other Religions - 1%
Nones - 11%
Refused to answer - 2%
That's just in the United States. Clearly there is a large majority of African Americans practicing Islam.
This data is taken from http://www.blackdemographics.com/religion.html
and is based on data collected by the Leonard T. Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life.
I couldn't find exact statistics for Cuban Americans, but as Cuba is predominantly Catholic it's safe to say that Cuban Americans are predominantly Catholic or some denomination of Catholicism. There are some that practice Santeria, but the majority do NOT practice Islam. The same goes for Mexican Americans (minus the practicing of Santeria), as Spanish influenced/colonized countries like Mexico are heavily Catholic. Those parental faiths have a tendency to stick with children.
The main thing I kept seeing is that the Muslim population in general in the United States was less than 7 million, in a country with over 300 million people that's not an overwhelming majority. In fact, most demographics I've seen put the Muslim population at about 0.6 - 0.8% of the nation's population.
Tl;dr: Skullbat needs to do a little research before throwing out blanket statements like "lolcoloredsaremostlymuslim!"
