Missouri City isn't balanced, exactly, but it is the most racially diverse city in Texas, and likely the entire South. Vallejo is the most perfect numbers although, I heard it's Asian and Black population is super monolithic compared to National average. Jersey City and Queens probably have the most diversity within the racial group. Fort Bend County is up there for sure, it and Queens are the two most diverse counties in the U.S and according to the Racial Dot Map, Fort Bend County is definitely more integrated than Queens is.

Richmond/ Lamar CISD is another city/area that is small and very diverse. Both Richmond and Missouri City are in Fort Bend. Richmond might have the most evenly spread Zip Code though with the 77407.

From this list it seems parts of Honolulu might be strong contenders.

Aside from the number of high home-ownership communities that are far out in nyc, the city doesnít really have much segregated areas.

Especially today since many areas are currently changing demographically as we speak right now!

You are responding to someone who describes Seattle, and Washington state as a whole, as "an interracial utopia".

Exactly. The onlg areas I would consider "segregated" are the heavily black areas in Eastern Brooklyn and Southeast Queens, and the heavily white areas of Staten Island below the expressway.

I would say multiple cities in CA, and metro NYC would be the leading contenders. Dark horses for the future might include Boston and metro Wash DC/NOVA...

NYC is pretty segregated, there are a few neighborhoods that are well integrated like Astoria and Park Slope but most of NYC is everyone sticking with their ethnicity.

Wrong. Most of the Bronx is mixed black (both African American and West Indian), Hispanic (Puerto Rican, Dominican, Mexican, Ecuadorian, Honduran), and in some cases Bengali too.

Brooklyn and Queens are all around super diverse, except for some wealthy white areas in BK, and some heavily black areas in Eastern Brooklyn and Southeast Queens. The entirety of the 7 train's stretch in Queens is super diverse.

Manhattan has wealthy white neighborhoods that aren't that diverse, but upper Manhattan is mixed black, Hispanic, ans increaaingly white gentrifiers.

I'm less familiar with Staten Island, but it is pretty diverse North of and perhaps directly below the Expressway.

When I say diverse I mean where Black, White, Hispanic and Asains live together. Most of NYC is Blacks living with Hispanics, Whites living with Whites and Asians with Asians.
