Your "basic" numbers were there are a lot of people here and some of them are different, but didn't even provide any context in comparison with other countries. Are you arguing diversity by volume? You must be, as the next statement was to throw out China and India with an "I'm pretty confident you'll agree these countries aren't as diverse", which isn't supporting anything, particularly since India has over 2,000 different ethnicities. I didn't change the meaning of anything. You simply didn't bother to understand the context (not to mention it wasn't really an important part of the argument) and thought you had a winning semantic argument. Your analogy is silly and changes the context entirely. But, on that vein, am I to suppose, after all this, you don't think America is the best country in the world?
