Africa: From the Taureg to Berber to Afrikaner, Probably countless ethnic tribes have passed through this continent to the rest of the world.

Africa is actually the most genetically diverse, although Asia is the most culturally diverse.

Africa for racial, the combined biological diversity of human beings indigenous to areas outside of Africa is less than the biological diversity of human beings within Africa. For cultural diversity and therefore "Ethnic" diversity, I'm going with Asia, due to the massive number of intact, distinct, unique, and viable human societies.
