    The most diverse place in every state

    A nation which statistically ranks as fairly average from the standpoint of ethnic diversity, America’s reputation as “The Great Melting Pot” is perhaps more true today than it was a century ago, but there is undoubtedly still a great amount of room for improvement in a handful of facets of contemporary society if that title is to be appropriately earned. More than half a century after the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., segregation is still rampant not only in the context of race, but as it pertains to income distribution, political preference, religious affiliation, and a myriad of other group-defining characteristics. Though there is immense work to be done in making America the best home that it can be for people of all backgrounds, one must recognize and appreciate the strides which have been made in the right direction over the past few decades.

    In celebration of the places around the country which best demonstrate the ideals of inclusion and togetherness, Stacker referenced a Niche study to compile a list of the most diverse places in every state. Each city and town included in the slideshow consists of a minimum of 1,000 residents and was ranked according to a number of key factors, the likes of which include race, age, and income variance. Read on to discover the most diverse place in your home state.
