No, I said I THINK, not that everyone has to think this way. And yes, I loathe snow and cold weather, but that's my opinion. You're entitled to yours, and I to mine. Now **** and leave me alone.

The Top 10 Most Diverse Cities in America


Does this answer our questions?

I voted that they were about the same. The difference to me is that you see different types of diversity in NYC and LA. Since NY and LA are on opposite coasts the racial and ethnic mixes are obviously different. But IMO what ever city you think is #1, there is no other city in the USA and maybe the world outside of London, Paris, Toronto and Hong Kong that are more diverse than either NYC or LA.

Yes, I posted that link somewhere else. LA is more diverse, according to this, than NYC. And yes, yuusr is a hypocrite. And when did I ever talk as if they are facts? I said each time I THINK NYC is overrated, I THINK LA has nicer people. If I was talking in a tone that made it sound like they're fact, I would've just said "LA is better, it has nicer people", not "I think". You're just a troll trying to stir the pot.

Yeah as if there aren't a dozen of these on the internet.

Yahoo!

Most And Least Diverse Cities: Brown University Study Evaluates Diversity In The U.S.

New York City is the Most Diverse Place in the U.S. Thanks to Under-the-Radar Asians - New York - News - Runnin' Scared

Study: Houston area passes NYC as nation's most diverse

The real data is available to everyone though the census. People see for themselves and see which is more diverse. Don't know how this even became a debate.

And, despite a lot of fake people, I think Los Angelenos are friendlier as a whole than New Yorkers.
Show me where it says "I think" after any of those.

Then again I don't know why I still keep arguing with a Homer that believes anything he reads on the internet.
