Someplace about half way up the coast in Brazil, maybe Salvador. The city I live in is 10% black, 50% Hispanic, and 40% white non hispanic. That's pretty diverse.

Default Racially Diverse Cities

OK depends how you define racial diversity, Miami could be considered racially diverse, however it has two very large ethnic groups from porta rico and cuba, and thats about it.
Toronto Canada and Melbourne Australia are by far the most ethincall diverse places I have visited as a percentage of the population. London and New York may have large ethnic groups, but are also much larger cities.
Did a quick google search, their are more than 200 differnt languages spoken in Melbourne, makes for intersting reading,

There is a part of North East London called Stoke Newington, which is adjacent to Stamford Hill and both areas, especially Stamford Hill has a high concentration of Hasidic Jews actually the largest Hasidic Jewish community in Europe. Drive through the area any given Friday evening and you will see Hasidic men in their long robes, their women folk and children all walking to prayers the same time the Muslims are going to evening prayers. No bombs going off, no guns. Imagine Mosques and Synagogues within yards of each other.

It's not uncommon to find Polish shops alongside a Nigerian restaurant, with Indian with other business owned by other nationalities, sometimes blaring out their music. Same goes for the residential neighbourhoods.

I would vote for Toronto, Vancouver, New York, and San Francisco. But if I were to choose one among them, Toronto wins, hands down.

Actually I have, and my sister lives there so I visit quite often. Sydney is diverse, without a doubt, but it's not racially integrated, not yet anyway.

My criteria for a racially integrated city: you don't just see people with different skin colors mingle together in one place and ethnic restaurants in all corners (any big city would qualify for that). A racially integrated city (for me) means you see minorities working jobs that normally minorities don't do, such as law enforcement/public services, high-end corporate jobs, politics, etc. Sydney has tons of Asians (it can't help it considering its location) and other ethnicities, yes, but they're not much integrated into fields I mentioned above.

I would go with these also but in a different order, based on integration:

NYC, Paris, London, Toronto, then Los Angeles...I would also add the San Francisco Bay Area.
