But overall... I think Jersey City is the most diverse big city in the country
Jersey City,

Black- 28%
Hispanic- 28%
White- 24%
Other race- 15%
Asian- 15%
Two or more races- 6%
Yeah, that is tough to beat. I think St. Peter's College in JC has similar diversity in terms of it's student population too.

Why didn't you include asian as a race on your list? Many cities, especially on the west coast, have significant asian populations. San Francisco for example is over 30% asian.

Sorry, I tried, but the source I used didn't list asian population. Isn't San Francisco's asian population around 15%.

Nope, SF's asian population is 33.1% according to 2007 census estimates.

Also, your list has stats for city propers, but you're using populations for their entire metro areas.

I know, I know. I did that on purpose because cities are different sizes and city population can be misleading. For example, Kansas City's city population is about 80,000 more than St. Louis'. But St. Louis has a much smaller area and a higher population density.

Then why don't you compare metro percentages with metro pops. That would help mitigate (but not eliminate) this skew.

I thought of that, but I previously researched city stats, and I just stuck with that because I have more knowledge about it rather than metro.
