While I am white, so I admit I may be wrong, I think you’re confusing the racists "White Pride" sects, that claim to be Christian, that you find all over the US (but are more vocal in the Bible Belt) and "Christianity" as a whole. To think it's "pretty scary", makes it sound like only racist Christianity is found in the Bible belt. That is simply not true. These groups may be very vocal, but they don’t even make up even a small percentage of Bible belt churches. They are the exception, not the rule.
There are many many churches in the Bible belt, all of whom cater to different worship styles and neighborhood. Some congregations are almost all minorities, but just as many are evenly mixed (like mine is). For example, in 2008, 45% of Southern Baptists were African American. There are also churches that are mostly white, but have no problems with minority attending, but due to location or other factors, seem to attract white people.
I would say that minorities probably attend church more often in the Bible belt, just like whites do, then outside the Bible belt, so if you are "Christianity" and a minority, then living in the Bible belt is a good thing.2
