This is the case in most of the games I play. Be it in Las Vegas or even up at school. It's kind of crazy to find decent white players that don't think it's a sprint meet - kick the ball upfield and chase it. In my experience whites tend to pass the ball only upfield, rather than knock it around and use positioning to their advantage. It results in quick turnovers and a lot of racing up and down.
Then you have the soccer equivalent of "bros" - the ones who think they're Ronaldinho at his prime, trying to run through six or seven and then becoming despondent and frustrated when they inevitably lose the ball trying to do knee-juggles past a wall of defense. These are usually Latins with a chip on their shoulder.
My favorite guy to play with is actually a Korean studying here. He understands the pace of the game and how to shift play across the field, rather than the ball bouncing up and down a single sideline. Plus he's not afraid to put his foot through yours.
I think overall though, I prefer play with Latins than Whites because of the skill needed as opposed to pure physical prowess.
