Sacramento, Oakland, & Stockton more diverse than NYC?

I was wondering if someone could explain this to me. I was under the impression that NYC had people from everywhere in the world. 

How can someplace be more diverse than that?

    Agree.  But you should cite some demographic sources for NYC to make your point.

    I think Oakland, where I live, is way more diverse.  Here's why:

    "Oakland racial demographics


    According to the most recent ACS, the racial composition of Oakland was: White: 36.66% Black or African American: 24.31% Asian: 15.89% Other race: 14.65% Two or more races: 7.01% Native American: 0.87% Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander: 0.60%" [ ]

    Now prove me otherwise with your own numbers.

    "Diversity" is just a code word for  large amounts of darkies.

    Oakland and NYC are certainly very ethnically diverse. Sacramento not so much. But Oakland is rapidly losing people of color due to high housing costs.

    total and complete nonsense.....NYC is called the Great Melting Pot for a reason.  There is every country in the world represented in NYC.

    In fact, the UN is there.   There is every  nationality  that can be found on earth  in NYC. 

    I don't know how the hell you can get more diverse than that.
