This is definitely open to different interpretation...

But, to me, Miami is diverse in a very interesting way. Tons of foreign-born. Coming from all over the Carribbean and South America - i.e. Haitians, Cubans, Brazilians, Colombians, on and on.

Then you have Jewish and Russian-Jewish and Nigerian and various Europeans and Africans.

One thing it's missing though is sizeable Asian populations. Probably the one major factor that most people associate with 'diversity'

Despite having high numbers of foreign-borns from everywhere else but Asia...would you still classify it as 'diverse' or lacking that 'not so diverse'?

Very diverse racially, ethnically, and religiously speaking; it fails to deliver in the language department, though.

Very diverse but I can see how people feel it may not be, its more segregated than most metros but the diversity is there. That is undeniable

Not very diverse, you hardly see blonds or red heads like in other areas.

I guess New York wouldn't be diverse either...

But that is a category I hadn't thought of before...

I was actually born blond, but eventually my hair got darker over the years, now it's black. Am I diverse? LOL. I also know people whose eye's pupils change in color depending on their moods.
