If this issue is that important to the OP (assuming he/she isn't a troll), then the only answer is to leave Texas. There are white states like the Dakota's or Vermont. Texas is an extremely diverse state

In Fulshear 77.14% of the population is Caucasian.

Because you are still the majority and with 45 as the spokesperson for the country, you can pretty much do whatever and say whatever you want. Kinda like before everyone had rights so despite being around Asians, the US is your world again.

I have no doubt people are going to give you hell for this post. But I live in an ultra-diverse neighborhood close to you and it is very difficult to foster a sense of community when there is so little shared in common. Frankly, there is also the reality that many ethnic groups tend to have little interest in socializing outside their group.

Most of my neighborhood is south Asian, African (i.e. Nigerian) or Hispanic. In my experience, south Asians have almost no interest in interacting with anyone who isn't South Asian. It's easiest to be friendly with my Hispanic neighbors because we have more in common, but there are still a few cultural differences.
Can’t blame the guy. I felt it too living in an apartment complex near Katy that was nearly all 3rd world immigrants and primitive Muslims. I now live in an eclectic neighborhood that is 90% American-born of every race. It feels good to have a common language, dress and customs.

But nobody would ever call them that. They offer help or just ignore it.

Nonsense. Most people who ask this kind of question aren't asking for a neighborhood that's exclusively or mostly of that ethnicity. They just want an area where they can find some of their kind to socialize. Whites are still the plurality in Sugar Land, and still out number South Asians significantly. The OP, assuming he's not trolling, is asking for a neighborhood where he doesn't have to see minorities.

I don't remember seeing any post asking for a good black or Hispanic neighborhood. It is usually someone from a small minority like Jewish, Ukrainian or Filipino.

Where were most of the immigrants from? And what issues did you have with them?

Mostly middle eastern (Muslim). Making their women wear those hideous head coverings while the men wear anything they want. Loud, unruly kids.
Latinos from 3rd world- loud music, loud kids, everything loud!
Indians- nasty curry smells, and some smelled bad
People in general making no attempt to assimilate into American culture in their dress/behavior.

First generations tend not to, nothing new there.

Uuuuf I feel your pain, I had to live in a neighborhood that was majority Caucasian for a while and it was rough like that.

The men kept chewing tobacco all day and spitting it everywhere... It was nasty. The women just sat around all day smoking ,gossiping, and picking at their feet (weird I know)then at night everybody would get drunk and yell and fight.

Don't even get me started on the unsupervised children breaking and stealing everything.Pretty 3rd world like the neighbors you had, it was horrible, I agree with you I hate it when people don't assimilate.
