Toronto, ON, Canada. Hands down. Yu walk around downtown, and suddenly it often seems the white man is the minority. Such an interesting place, and fresh change. I love visiting that city

Try Stockton, California. When driving in it, people you see goes something like this: mexican, mexican, white, white, mexican, black, asian, mexican, mexican, white, white, mexican, asian, black, mexican, white, mexican, etc. The area has a lot of diversity even by California standards. It's diversity could only be compared to walking around Times Square in NYC on a Saturday.

since when is diversity having alot of blacks and Mexicans? You can't fill in the gap with any ol' non-white and call it diverse...To me diversity is having people from around the world not just Mexico.

London is very diverse - probably gets the nod from what I've seen. NYC too. Haven't been to Canada. Melbourne is up there when you talk about people from all over the world. In the 4 years I spent there, there weren't too many nationalities I didn't meet.

I agree, I just lived in London for half a year. When I got tired of British food (and I did believe me) there was Indian, Chinese, Italian, American, Thai, and Turkish readily available.

I have two opinions about diversity:
1. There is no virtue in diversity that is missing in another places
2. Diversity is more about people from throughout the world congregating in one place-many people mistake a place having lots of "non-whites" as being diverse. In fact, white people can make an area more diverse. To use London as an example look at the large Polish and Eastern European populations.
