I thought this was about nations, not cities...If we compared New York City and London, for example, I might give New York City the edge.


What about Houston? Miami? Los Angeles? San Francisco? Spartanburg?

When people talk about how tolerant Europeans are I always think of how black players get treated at soccer matches. They throw bananas, batteries and harass them in every possible way. They make Eagles fans look like they are at a elementary school play.

I will have to look up this blog but the writer made some great points on this very topic.
He talked about in Europe many from the Middle East can go right back home realtively easy, thus they don't fully assimilate into the Euro culture. And vice versa.
Also he mentioned the social umbrella that is in Eurpope and immigrants to any part of Europe are not as ambitious as the ones that make it to the States because those that come here know on some level a free ride is not there(contrary to popular belieft) and they also realize the vast potential for hitting it big.
Hands down the US is more diverse.
I can go to any mall in Charlotte and with ease see people from all over the world without blinking.

One last thing I think that sets us apart is our DNA for business and innovation. Its simply expected. We are not afraid to fall on our faces. The Euro's can't grasp this.
The Black Swan delves nicely into this as well.

Sorry, lazy post on my part. When we started talking about diversity I went straight to the big cities. I was too lazy to type out Glasgow, London, Edinburgh, etc. in comparison to NYC, SF, LA, Spartanburg, etc. My bad.

European soccer fans in general make Eagles fans look like they are at a school play.

South American fans take it to the next level.

The UK for sure.


According to the CIA world factbook, the UK is 92% white. Or do you consider having Irish and Scottish to be diverse?

Good time to post this vid. Even includes a reference to the Janet Jackson boob exposure at the Panther Super Bowl half time show.

My island off the coast of south america is a pretty great country. Bikini tops are banned, no taxes, and an endless supply of women making sammiches.

I think it is just a really great TIME to be alive.

Whether you are here, the UK, Canada, France, South America.....
Relatively speaking, things are good.
No world wars, food is pretty abundant (not everywhere, but in most places mentioned as contenders for "#1" it is), and you can have an opinion in these places without someone knocking on your door late at night to take you away.

When I think back to my parent's time, I realize that they had it sh*tty because my dad got drafted and you couldn't escape the hippies. They smell bad.
My grandparents had a depression and a world war.
Their parents came over from Europe where the first world war made things scary, we didn't even have a clue about antibiotics, and people just tried to survive the next political upheaval.

Before that, the plague, persecution.....death around every corner.

I mostly complain about today's crappy music and the fact that I can't get a plumber to come out until next week.

The plumber is necessary to unstop the toilet he just flushed the crappy music down. :)
