How do Jewish and Italian equal "Anglo?"

I wonder if "Anglo" is used more in Southern California?

Well, as nei stated, New York also has a lot of diversity within its black and Hispanic populations.

And you have the stats to prove it. And the videos. But my response was directed to the implication that "hispanics" (however the hell that's defined) are necessarily more homogenizing to a given area than are the presence of an even larger percentage of Europeans.

That might be true, inaccurately or otherwise.

New York's largest demographic (whites) still comprises a higher percentage of the CSA population than L.A.'s largest (Latinos). It's also a more heavily assimilated group.

NYC is amazingly diverse. The rest of the CSA, not so much.

So basically what your saying is that NYC is more diverse city but when it comes to MSA/CSA, LA is more racially diverse?

NYC is more heavily white but there is incredible diversity in that white population as well. We're talking about Italians, Ashkenazi Jews, Irish Catholics, Eastern Europeans, Greeks, Germans, WASPs just to name a few. There might be some cultural melding of all these groups into simply "white" but the diversity is still there. Compare that to a city like Atlanta where the vast majority of whites are simply of "American" ancestry, basically white people so far removed from scots-irish or english colonial ancestors that they just say that their background is American. There's no ethnic pride or diversity among whites anywhere else in the US like there is in New York.

LA is VERY diverse but there's not the same amount of diversity among its largest ethnic group, Hispanics. Most are simply Mexican and mestizo. Among its smaller minority and ethnic groups there is incredible diversity that rivals NYC- you have Chinese, Indians, Koreans, Iranians, Jews, African Americans and the same patchwork of white ancestries. It beats New York in the sense that its largest ethnic group is actually a minority almost everywhere else in America, so that's cool. But within that ethnic group, there is not much diversity.
