What constitutes diversity? The # of ethnicities or % of ethnicities?
It's not the rough number of asians or hispanics in the pop, but the number of sub groups in each one.

What would be more diverse a city with 50% hispanic (all Mexican) or a city that's 10% hispanic (Mexican, Pueto Rican, Nicaraguan, etc.)

What about me? I am right here in Brooklyn Heights and have never lived in Atlanta. I have only visited.

The Atlanta population is roughly 5.7 Million.

Therefore, the Atlanta metro population of Asains and Hispanics combined is around 12.5%, which is small.

Are my numbers wrong? I just estimated.
Not small at all, especially when you compare apples to apples. If you're only measure for diversity is "race", then Atlanta is pretty equal with cities it's same size in percentage of different "races". For instance:

Washington D.C. Metro
Total population
5,306,742

White
3,151,101
59.4% of metro population


Black or African American
1,432,702
27.0% of metro population

American Indian and Alaska Native
43,217
0.8% of metro population

Asian
492,855
9.3% of metro population

Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander
7,654
0.1% of metro population

Some other race
316,798
6.0% of metro population

Hispanic or Latino (of any race)

633,399
11.9% of metro population


Now you compare that with Atlanta:

Atlanta Metro
Total population

5,251,899

White
3,120,271
59.4% of metro population

Black or African American
1,669,313
31.8% of metro population

American Indian and Alaska Native
33,307
0.6% of metro population

Asian
234,922
4.5% of metro population

Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander
4,256
0.1% of metro population

Some other race
265,558
5.1% of metro population

HISPANIC OR LATINO AND RACE
487,984
9.3% of metro population

Notice how both places are nearly identical? Even the cities propers are the same. Both are small in land area and only constitute about 10% of the metro population, and both have a primarily black super majority around 60%

Does that mean that D.C. isn't diverse either?

It depends on the breakdown of each group.

I have traveled to other places I have spent a great amount time in NYC, I grew up millitary and I lived and vistied other citys. Im from one of the most diverse areas MIAMI so i know diversity. You on the other hand dont wanan educated yourself about at Atlanta instead of posting the same line over and over again about 95 percent black and white etc when people have broken things down for you but yet you still wanna dwell on that.
