In brief: Generally no
As our asian friends modify to western life the risks resemble ours.
There are a few conditions more common in other family trees and world backgrounds.

In brief: Depends
Cardiovascular risk factors are dependent on family history, smoking, cholesterol, hypertension, and diabetes/obesity.
So if you have any of these risk factors then your risk is higher, the color of your skin is not as critical in determining risk compared to these risks above.
