Well firstly you can't be a much better person it would appear talking about ppl in that way.

Secondly we've split up so I'm not sticking up for her she came to England because of the influx of foreigners.

I know other Italians ( where I live is called little Venice infact ) and they don't like it there no more and are as racist as they come!

You say you don't care about this and you don't care about that but the way you talk to people is shocking

I like how in your perspective a handful of people's statement in one class represent the mentality of several countries. Not at all biased there

Can't help but notice you guys aren't representing Native Americans, there's substantially more than 5,000 out here in LA, and Vancouver has a good number too.

No way London is more diverse than LA. Simply no way.

You'd best believe it is. Both places specialize in diversity from certain areas of the world, neither are well rounded like New York is.

London beats the pants off Los Angeles for Middle-East, Europe, South Asia, various parts of Africa. Los Angeles beats London at a good chunk of East and Southeast Asia and areas in the Americas.

London is more cosmopolitan, it is more integrated, making far better use of its diversity than Los Angeles. It gets the edge.

Paris is surely one of the most diverse cities. We walk in the street and every single person has a distinct look. And in some regions such as the 13ème Arrondissement we sometimes don't even realise that we are in France, but in some asian city, with all possible nationalities.

I heard similar remarks made by Spaniards and Portuguese people, hence the reference to some European countries- that just wasn't added to my comment.

Interestingly, it was on train rides across the many countries that I visited where people felt comfortable blurting out all of their stereotypes and negative opinions about immigrants. If it wasn't Africans, it was Colombians. If it wasn't Colombians, it was Brazilians, etc...etc...
