What do you get if you mix a Black and a Jew? Wouldn't the child have a legitimate claim to be both? If Barack Obama's mother turned out to have been a non-practicing Jew, what would that make him?

Default London - nothing compares.

London. No contest.
300 different languages spoken daily. 40% foreign born.
Very integrated.
That's why London beat NYC for the 2012 Olympics.

In terms of both race and ethnicity, any major North American metropolitan area. If ethnicity only, then some major European metropolitan areas can be included too since different types of white people can technically count as different ethnic groups. I'm not familiar with the southern half of the world.

London is around 69% white.
in the United States any major city with over a 60% white population is not considered diverse. So since maybe 70% of Miami's population is foreign makes it more diverse than NYC? Hello no. About 60% of the people in London are actually British, and there is no major city that has a white ethnicity over 50% in the United States. And 40% are not foreign born, they have foreign ancestry. New York and Los Angeles are by far the most diverse cities in the world in terms of ethnic groups.Plus the suburbs in London are may more British than the suburbs of LA and NY are white. I dont see how people think London is really that Diverse.

Just because it's 69% white doesn't mean it's not diverse. Of those white, there are many large sections different European countries represented which you wouldn't get anywhere near as many as New York.

60% of the People are actually British? What percentage of New Yorkers are American?

In the area of London I live in, there would be just about every country on earth represented from different parts of Africa, The carribean and Europe.

Sure in US cities you might have a higher percentage of non whites but that doesn't necessarily make it more diverse as a lot of those non-whites are American born and bred.

I'm sorry I just don't see how you can say that London is not diverse.

just because you are foreign born it does not make it diverse what makes it diverse is the amount of culture and race sharing equally like NY. There is also other cultures like pop culture or hip hop culture. Of course they are american but an american is not a race or a region of specific people so you pointing that out does not help you. How would you know there isnt a lot of different white europeans in NYC. Our population of almost nine million and with almost as many languages spoken and yet there is no majority race. We get people form all around the world. Melting Pot

I understand New York is diverse but I refute that London is not diverse. BTW London's not my city. I don't even like the place even though I live here. I much prefer New York. London is extremely multi cultural and diverse maybe not it in the same way as NYC but you cannot say it's not diverse.
