Sacramento/Oakland or Houston. I understand DC and NYC, the rest? hell no.

Philly is really only as diverse as Boston.

Miami??

LA doesn't have enough black people
KC is a joke

Who the hell voted for Atlanta and Kansas City? Someone from one of those places? LOL! Even Philly is a stretch and Miami doesn't have enough from all regions of the world compared to the other cities listed.

Or is your tongue planted in your cheek?

I grew up there, and I know it wasn't then and isn't now a melting pot.

it's more ethnically diverse than some might think, but (a) it's predominantly black and white with a small Hispanic population and a scattering of Eastern European ethnics in Kansas plus (I hear) a growing (South Asian) Indian community (b) it's sharply divided by race: everyone there knows what "east of Troost" and "west of Troost" are shorthand for.

I'm not sure Philly is "only as diverse as Boston" anymore.

There's been a sizable flow of immigrants into the lower Northeast portion of the city, and they come from the Caribbean (English- and Spanish-speaking), Southeast Asia (in particular Cambodia), Peru, Brazil, Korea and even a few Mongolians.

Add to these the Russians who have settled in the far Northeast, the Mexicans from Puebla who keep the city's restaurant kitchens staffed, the Vietnamese who have also settled in eastern South Philly and a few other ethnic groups along with the Chinese in Chinatown, and I think we now have a richer/more diverse ethnic and racial stew than we once had.

It may not match the numbers of Houston or LA, but it's a pretty healthy mix.

Isn’t Sacramento really good in this regard? I’m surprised it’s not a poll option.

Not trying to be rude, but you’re really underestimating the diversity in Boston if you think any of that puts Philly way ahead of Boston.
