Isn't Jamaica around 85-90% black though? Cuba has way more whites, blacks, mixed black and white, and Asians (but no Indians). The DR is also more diverse...and other countries. Besides, Jamaica isn't Latin American...

Yes Cuba maybe...I don't think Latin America competes with the Anglosphere countries simply because Hispanic culture is too dominant.

This is about the countries and England and Wales for all the changes in the last decade still are pretty standard by the list. The population is 81% white british, 85% white, and Enlglish is the principle language in over 90% of households.

Even in Australia the principle language is well below 80% english.

Many countries are similar, but the UK has diverse cities including one of the most diverse cities on earth and 4 distinct countries, that must count for something.

If you wanna talk Latin America, I'd put Jamaica ahead. It has Chinese, Indians, Europeans.etc along with African descended Jamaicans.
I'd put Trinidad ahead of Jamaica on the diversity scale, it's population is more mixed.

brazil and america are not diverse.papua new guinea, west papua, many african nations are diverse. india is diverse. america has one language (english with a spanish minority that also knows english) and one main race (white with a minority black and an even smaller asian and native american race- even black have white blood as well as most american asians and native american indians who are mostly likely to mix with whites), brazil has 1 language - portugese, 2 race black and white with an native brazilian indian minority and an even smaller asian minority (most brazilians are mulatos with an small amount of indian blood, and almost all white & black brazilians are mixed with the other). heck belgium is more diverse than america (is it dutch or french). belize is more diverse than america.

Well I wouldn't say world. NYC might be #1, but in reality, London and Sydney are extremely diverse too..extremely diverse.

For the US, Chicago is right behind those two cities too.

If we do not consider immigrants (as in western countries), China is quite diverse too.

Many families of languages have been spoken NATIVELY in China for over a thousand years:

Sino-Tibetan (Chinese, Tibetan, Qiang, among many others),
Altaic (Mongolian, Xibo, Korean(?)...),
Tai-Kadai (Zhuang, Dai...),
Miao-Yao/Hmong-Mien (Miao, Yao...)
Turkic (Uighur, Kazakh...)
Indo-European (Tajik)
