I’m in Miami and I’m a white boy who is a minority in his own country—only 20% of the population here...actually, I need to identify myself as a white non-Hispanic in Miami because many Latinos here identify themselves as White—as in White Hispanic.

The ten whitest states' urban areas are increasingly more diverse than many people would imagine, even if less so than other parts of the US. Looking at the enrollment in public schools of Manchester (NH), Des Moines (IA), or Louisville (KY), for example, there is a huge variety of backgrounds represented, even if the states as a whole are statistically fairly homogeneous.

Outside of California, Texas and, to a lesser extent, Florida, most of the United States is very white, even if inner-city public school enrollment is statistically diverse on paper. The majority of people you observe at airports, concerts, sporting events, professional offices, etc. are still mostly white, even in larger, more southerly cities such as Charlotte and Nashville, for example. My hometown of Long Beach, CA has among the lowest share of non-Hispanic whites of any major city in the entire country, yet a plurality of law enforcement officers, teachers and crossing guards are white.

Kind of surprised that Nevada is in the 10 least white states in the country - Reno doesn't feel particularly diverse or international compared to other cities I've been to. Of course, Nevada is famously empty outside the Reno/Carson/Tahoe and Vegas areas, so maybe the average state whose major cities feel as diverse as Nevada's do would actually be whiter in the aggregate, because its rural areas are much more populated than ours.

Yeah the Vegas Metro Area is the reason why, although smaller cities in the state do have a larger than expected latino population.
