Denver and most all of colorado has large Latino American and immigrants populations. Denver has a pretty decent size of African Americans (about 10%) and most are in northeast denver, with some decent populations in southeast denver as well. Asian americans are a lot less. However, there are significant populations of Asian americans in the east westminster, twin lakes, southwest denver, south denver, and southeast denver areas. Also, Superior up near Boulder has a larger Asian population. So, the denver metro area is the main hub of diversity in CO, but its pretty diverse for a southern mountain west city.
I don't think it's off base at all. All those people of different color are all American to me. Almost all asian and african descent people have been here just as long as many of us of euro descent and speak the same language and have much of the same cultural characteristics everyone else does. I don't see how someone of color makes them "diverse". Using your same analogy those of Euro descent must be diverse because most come from everywhere from Russia to Spain and all points in between. Lots of diversity there.

We need to get out of this idiotic thinking as a society. If we have a USA passport we are all Americans.

Im not thinking as an idiot. I was under the impression that the original poster was asking about diversity (usually people think of ethnic and cultural diversity first) in CO and the Denver Metro area. Therefore, i only pointed out that the Denver area has plenty of diversity ethnically and culturally.

There is a difference between cultural and ethnic diversity....I read Wanneroo's initial comments as cultural more than ethnic, reflecting some of the moral/lifestyle types of diversity.....there's a lot of financial diversity as well.....

Frankly, considering the cultural/lifestyle diversity is more important than their ethnicity ~ it's how they conduct themselves within a community that people should be paying attention to.....ancestry isn't.....

True. Even so, CO still has plenty of cultural and lifestyle diversity, especially in Denver.
