Welcome to Houston: America’s Most Diverse City!
It seems like the rest of the country, and even the world, is finally starting to realize what we Houstonians have known for years: Houston diversity is the greatest in the country.
Houston has a lot of reasons to brag. We’re the largest city in Texas, the fourth largest city in the country, one of the largest ports in the country, and NASA’s Mission control. However, when people think about Texas, they don’t usually think of extreme diversity. Houston, with it’s true melting pot of cultures and nations, defies that.
According the the Houston Chronicle, one out of four people living in Houston weren’t born in America. It’s more than just a group of people moving into one area, like you see in New York, though. While you will find little districts through Houston that seem to represent one culture over another, it’s far more common to see people of every race, culture, and religion mingling and living among each other.
When most Americans think of diverse cities, they usually think of New York City. Historically, it was where most immigrants entered America, and most found it easy to make the city their home. New York City hasn’t been the most diverse city since 2010, when Houston took over the title. As a matter of fact, experts are saying that by the year 2050, the rest of the country will mirror what Houston is today.
Houston is once again at the forefront of this country, and we’re proud of our city and it’s openness to anyone, no matter what they look like or where they’re from.
