Bike Miami held a public meeting earlier this month to talk about bicycle advocacy, and 17 of the 44 people who showed up were Hispanic. I don't recall there being any black people present, however -- and they are indeed a significant part of the daily riders in our town. Nor did I see any at the Ride of Silence last Wednesday.

So I agree with you that the bicycle community has a challenge of inclusivity here. The fact that we can organize well among people who spend $1,000 or up on a bicycle doesn't mean we are going to be effective in building a healthy riding environment.
