Most Racially Diverse Countries 2019

Race is defined as “a class or kind of people unified by shared interests, habits, or characteristics.” If a country is racially-diverse, it means that there are many different groups of people that share their own interests, habits, and characteristics.

Racial diversity is growing in many nations. According to a recent survey by conducted by Pew Research Center, approximately 69% of people surveyed across 27 nations said that their respective nations have grown more diverse over the last 20 years. Close to half of survey respondents say that they favor a more racially diverse nation.

Even though racial diversity is still growing in some nations, other nations already have a very diverse population. Let’s explore some of these diverse nations.

Trinidad and Tobago is very diverse. Groups in this country include East Indians, Afro-Trinidadians, and mixed races. Belize is another country that has racial diversity, with its population made up of Mestizos, Kriols, Mayans, East Indians, and other races.

Guyana is also racially diverse. Races that reside in this nation include East Indians, blacks, mixed races, and Chinese.
