If you mean by immigrants of different nationalities, that's up for dispute because Canada and the UK would have to be in the same discussion. All 3 of those countries have immigration legacies from across the world. Ethnically, no. Tons of countries in the world have various ethnicities with different languages, such as India and Nigeria.

Indeed. Both countries have ( it doesn't matter if mixed or not ) a variety of ethnic groups. White ( and here we have to mention not only those who descend from the British colonists in the US or the Portuguese in Brazil, but all those who descend from the immigrants who came to both countries in late XIX century and early XX century - Italians, Germans Polishes, Spanish to both countries and Chinese to the US and Japanese, Turkish, Lebanese and Syrians to Brasil -, Afro, indian make of both countries real melting pots like the Americans use to say.

Well, I think something must be fixed here.

- 1 interracial relationship ( married or not ) is, A REAL FACT here. A walk down the streets of São Paulo, Rio, Belo Horizonte, Salvador, Recife will prove it. But the interracial marriage brings a sordid factor to the descendants: there is a skin whitening - During the Impire in the XIX century a Brazilian politician defended mixed marriage in order to turn all the Brazilian population into white color in just a matter of decades. So sometimes one might think that what you see is a completely white person, but believe me, he or she may have black or indian gene in his or her blood.
- 2 we do recognize racism in Brazil. there is, no doubt, not as hard as in the US, but it is there...

In Latam the most diverse countries racially are Venezuela, Colombia, Panamá y Brasil. They have a similar racial diversity.

It all depends on how one defines diversity. Different countries have different types of diversity. Cultural, so-called racial, religious, linguistic...

Not saying that they aren't diverse....but I think there was an implication that in Trinidad all the races mixed together...which might be true of the black with the indigeneous and whatever white was there. But the East Indians not much at all. At least, that's what I'd always heard anyways.
That's actually incorrect. The mixed population is Trinidad & Tobago is the fastest growing. The most recent census (2011) places the East Indian population at 35% and the African population at 34%. Both groups are mixing and shrinking. There are also plenty people who are mixed within both groups (both have mixed with Venezuelans of different heritages for example), but just identify with one or the other. In terms of the mixed population, those people could be mixed with anything from African, Indian, Chinese, Syrian or Lebanese, Amerindian, French or Spanish etc. There are families where you will find all of the above.
