Houston beats them all; throughout the years the city of Houston has averaged 35%Black 35% white 30% Hispanic and 10% Asian city council representation.

Thats not good and Houston is not near these cities.

Here is some info on NYC

Quote:
New York City is exceptionally multicultural. Throughout its history the city has been a major point of entry for immigrants; the term "melting pot" was first coined to describe densely populated immigrant neighborhoods on the Lower East Side. About 36% of the city's population is foreign-born. Among US cities, this proportion is higher only in Los Angeles and Miami. While the immigrant communities in those cities are dominated by a few nationalities, in New York no single nationality dominates. The ten nations constituting the largest sources of modern immigration to New York City are the Dominican Republic, China, Jamaica, Guyana, Mexico, Ecuador, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, Colombia, and Russia. About 170 languages are spoken in the city.

According to a 2001 study by Claritas four of the city's five boroughs ranked among the nation's 20 most diverse counties. Queens ranked #1, Brooklyn #3, Manhattan #7, The Bronx #17. In addition Hudson County ranked #6 and Essex County #15, both of which are part of the New York Metropolitan Area.

Taxation without representation is not very Democratic.

That's why London beat NYC for the 2012 Olympics.
Foreign born people make up over half the population of Toronto.

NYC & Toronto seem to be about equal diversity wise since you can find someone from virtually every corner of the globe. NYC seems to be more proportionate in terms of the numbers of the different ethnic groups.

Toronto is more Euro with the majority of the balance made up by east and south asians. NYC has almost even numbers of non-hispanic Euro and Afro & hispanic (all three very diverse) descent with asians (diverse as well) not too far behind.

In the US: New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, and many, many others

Actually read somewhere that Oakland and Long Beach, CA were or are the most ethnically diverse cities in the country, don't know if thats true but pretty interesting that two mid-size industrial cities in the shadow of more cosmopolitan cities(SF and LA resp.) would be the most diverse
