I remember when my family was probably the only non black family on the block. But yeah, I've noticed the whites and asians all moving in lately. They even got those two new Japanese restaurants on Pico, one by Redondo I think and the other over by Rimpau.

I assume you mean London and Sydney, England and Australia or are you talking eastern Canada? I think it would be hard to pin down most racially diverse. I know out west here all the major cities (aside from the smaller ones in Saskatchewan) are really diverse. In my old neighbourhood back in Edmonton it was a huge cross section. Asians, East Indian, Pakistani, African, European, Native American. You name, we had them to some extent. Now where I live being a much smaller town it's mainly european (a sizeable portion of eastern european and a good portion of german) native american, francophones and a minor amount of inuit. Oddly enough there's a lot of African American decents sprinkled throughout this whole area because of the Alaskan Highway. A portion of the american military that helped build it were African American (mostly from the Carolinas) and some settled up here and some just sowed some oats while working. :)

Amsterdam,Rotterdam,The Haque and Paramaribo in Suriname(South-America).If you talk about a multi-culturel society where everybody get's along,even the different religions get along.That's Suriname Paramaribo.In Paramaribo there is a mosque a church and a Jewish synagogue all in one street and everybody get's along.
