Being a social construct, the parameters of race constantly shift and redefine. Today we seem to think largely in broad stroke terms of people being white, black, hispanic, and Asian.

So using that perspective, what city and/or metro area has the smallest range between the percentages of those four groups? Obviously since no city or metro is 25% white, 25% black, 25% hispanic, and 25% Asian, there is no "0 range" here.

But what place comes closest? And other than the one with the smallest range, what cities/metro's do you considered fairly balanced between whites, blacks, hispanics, and Asians?

I don’t have the numbers on hand, but I believe Oakland CA is one city that may largely fit this criteria.

I came into this thread to say Oakland! Very evenly mixed with black, white, and Hispanic, with Asians not too far behind

NYC proper is pretty balanced as well, although it doesn't come close to 25/25/25/25

Houston is pretty close to fitting this criteria. Lower than 25% Asian but still a large Asian community.

I know the closest city to that number is Vallejo, CA
25% White
24% Asian (Mostly Filipino)
23% Hispanic
20% Black
7% Mixed Race
1% Pacific Islander

But the future is looking pretty diverse although it won’t stay like this.

24% Hispanic
23% Mixed Race
21% Black
16% White
15% Asian
1% Pacific Islander

It's impossible to say with demographic numbers because the US Census still includes Hispanic numbers with the White population so it's hard to get a true reflection of either.

That's not exactly true, you usually see white people separated as "non-Hispanic white".
