If you are not already familiar with them, I recommend the studies of Dora L. Costa & Matthew Kahn on the decline in social capital: Understanding the Decline in Social Capital, 1952-1988 and Civic Engagement and Community Heterogeneity: An Economist`s Perspective. [PDF]
Both of them explicitly mention racial diversity as a cause of the decline in social capital over the recent generations. Though one can almost sense their apprehension in bringing up the subject, they clearly recognize multiculturalism`s corrosive effect on cohesiveness within a nation.
