Yes LA has a large Mexican population, but pretty much every nationality from Latin America is represented there. I would be interested to see the numbers for Caribbean nationalities in Toronto.

Some pockets of Western Sydney are very diverse. If you're in Auburn or Cabramatta (Sydney suburbs) you'd have to repeatedly let yourself know that you're in Australia. Lol...

There aren't as many people from the Caribbean, but there are scores of people from continental Latin America in LA.

Many come and go, others stay but Brescia's (one of the wealthiest Italian cities) are really impressive numbers. In 10 years, the number of immigrants double from around 20k to almost 40k. That's a crazy demographic boom.

Anyway, there are suburbs around Milan (Pioltello and Baranzate come close to 30%) who are even more impressive but i don't know if they would count

Well my ex was from Genoa ( north of Turin and Milan ) I won't say she was racist but very patriotic shall we say

And she hated the diversity ( which as a Londoner I can relate to ) but yes it's bad

I took a Spanish debate course(in Spain) and many of my classmates were Italian. One of our debate topics was immigration, and boy they did not hold back. All of the Americans were horrified- this is where I realized that the US really does have a very different cultural view towards immigration vs some European nations. There was even a kid there who was born in Argentina to Italian parents, moved to Italy at age 8, and said he had never really been accepted as an Italian in society.

I actually don't, i don't care if someone has a different colour of skin, culture, traditions as long as they don't bother me. As for your ex, she was a horrible person and her views aren't that common in Italy and especially in Genoa which is a very left wing city. Maybe she just wasn't used to it when she got to London (Genoa is one of the least diverse cities in Italy)
