Latino/ hispanic or whatever you call it is not a race and are shoved under white most times.

San Antonio is NOT 28% white according to the census.
I'm sure he meant Non-Hispanic White. None of those cities are majority Non-Hispanic White.

The following are some of the least white metros I find going by the American Community Survey. Presumably the core cities are also low in white percentage as core cities are usually, though not always, less white.

Albany, Georgia
Fayetteville, North Carolina
Hinesville-Fort Stewart, Georgia
Honolulu, Hawaii
Pine Bluff, Arkansas
Sumter, South Carolina

United States by Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Area; and for Puerto Rico - GCT0201. Percent of the Total Population Who Are White Alone<BR>Universe: Total population

Going by City-Data the following cities or core-cities look to be under 30% white.

Hartford, Connecticut
Houston, Texas
Laredo, Texas
Los Angeles, California - The entire metro is barely more than 50% white.
Oxnard, California
San Antonio, Texas

Lots of others. Look for "least English-speaking" cities, I'll link to it, and some other lists. Although some of those are highly Hispanic so maybe "whiter" than that sounds. There are some highly Asian-towns in California, like Gardena or Garden Grove, in the 103 "most diverse" list that might fit better than. There are also some highly "black" cities in the Southeast that might be under 30% white.

Well, that's not what he meant, therefore NONE of those cities are majority NON-Hispanic White, and that's not even CLOSE to debatable.

Sometimes you need to see some white women I dont understand this question. Most people just ask for the diversity they're looking for, not a lack of a certain demographic.

If you are seriously looking at places with a high level of ethnic diversity consider Queens, the second most populous of the five boroughs of New York City. Whatever or whoever you want you'll find. I'd guess its the most polyglot county in the nation hands down.

According to Wiki:

"According the 2010 Census, 27.6% of the population was non-Hispanic White, 17.7% non-Hispanic Black or African American, 22.8% non-Hispanic Asian, 1.4% from some other race (non-Hispanic) and 2.5% of two or more races (non-Hispanic). 27.5% of Queens's population was of 
Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin (they may be of any race)."

Queens also has 2.2 million people so there are LOT of all those ethnicities. Plus, if you're looking to relocate to NYC, Queens is a lot cheaper than Manhattan in the vast majority of neighborhoods. It's alos very much a borough of neighborhoods where you can feel part of a community that feels like a city of 200,000 or in some cases even smaller. And those communites can be predominantly Indian, Pakistani, Mexican, Colombian, Chinese, or have residents from dozens of other countruies. And yes, there are some neighborhoods with a notable mix of several of them. And of course all the delights of Manhattan are only a subway ride away.

I think he means they're majority Hispanic, which by the way Hispanic people can be of any ethnicity because Hispanic is short of hispanophone, and essentially means you come from a Spanish speaking culture of any sort.
