Miami has southern culture, but overall it's much more multicultural than any other city in the south.

LOL, you know Miami rappers are exempt. They're southern "for profit" lol. Those millions of hip-hop dollars can turn lots of people as southern as they need to be. You know they'd defect along with most of the SOFLA posters without those $$$$$$ LMAO.
No offense SOFLA.

Fixed that for you. They have the least amount Asians out of the big southern four by a big margin, so that cuts out the "much more multicultural than any other city in the south" part.

How many subgroups of Latinos/Hispanics and blacks does Miami have that other southern cities lack? What southern city has the highest variety of Asians?

In Central New York we say "soda"! In Western New York they say "pop"! Also, people in Western New York put the word "the" in front of street route numbers ("yeah, you take the 90 to..."). Which is lame!

I've never considered South Florida part of the South. It's an entirely different region, in my opinion.

Miami has probably the most diverse group of Latinos in the South. As far as Blacks go it's hard to say. I've never seen reliable information since it's more easily blurred in our society. While they do have a lot of blacks of Caribbean and Latin origin, so does Atlanta as well as having a large continental African expat community.

We come in varieties?

When it comes to who has the most diverse group of Asians, probably it would be Houston as they have the largest amount overall, but Dallas and Atlanta are no slouch in that department either.

From another thread, here are the most to least diverse:
http://www.city-data.com/forum/12373787-post1.html

Dallas-Fort Worth CSA (Dallas-Fort Worth, TX CSA - ACS Demographic and Housing Estimates: 2006-2008)
54.3% White Non-Hispanic
13.3% Black Non-Hispanic
26.0% Hispanic
4.5% Asian
1.3% Two or more races
US Census Diversity Index: .618

Houston CSA (Houston-Baytown-Huntsville, TX CSA - ACS Demographic and Housing Estimates: 2006-2008)
43.2% White Non-Hispanic
16.6% Black Non-Hispanic
33.1% Hispanic
5.6% Asian
0.9% Two or more races
US Census Diversity Index: .676

Atlanta CSA (Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Gainesville, GA-AL CSA - ACS Demographic and Housing Estimates: 2006-2008)
54.8% White Non-Hispanic
29.9% Black Non-Hispanic
9.7% Hispanic
3.9% Asian
1.1% Two or more races
US Census Diversity Index: .599

Miami MSA (doesn't have a CSA: Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach, FL Metro Area - ACS Demographic and Housing Estimates: 2006-2008)
38.4% White Non-Hispanic
19.2% Black Non-Hispanic
38.9% Hispanic
2.1% Asian
0.9% Two or more races
US Census Diversity Index: .663

*Take all of this information with a grain of salt as it is a few years old and just an estimate.

On the soda thing this applies to a 50-100 mile radius around St. Louis and is either "pop" or "Coke" outside depending on direction.

If you look for it, census.gov gives you a break down of every single ethnicity recorded during estimates; they just have it hidden out of the way.
