In brief: NO
Hepatitis b is a dna virus which will infect its host regardless of race.
However, this virus is passed through blood and vaginal or seminal fluids, which has resulted in increased frequency of infection within drug seeking populations or populations engaging in unprotected sex. Please see your physician if you suspect infection.
