Robert D. Putnam, Professor of Political Science at Harvard, conducted a ten year study on how multiculturalism affects social trust.  He surveyed 26,200 people in 40 American communities, finding that when the data were adjusted for class, income and other factors, the more racially diverse a community is, the greater the loss of trust.  People in diverse communities "don’t trust the local mayor, they don’t trust the local paper, they don’t trust other people and institutions."

In the presence of such ethnic diversity, Putnam maintains that "[W]e hunker down. We act like turtles. The effect of diversity is worse than had been imagined. And it’s not just that we don’t trust people who are not like us.  In diverse communities, we don’t trust people who do look like us."

Other studies and research in the United States suggest that ethic diversity not only breeds mistrust, but increases chances of war, lower public goods provision and decreases democratization... ethnic diversity in itself is not detrimental to peace, public goods provision or democracy.  

Also, case studies of the United States, Africa and South-East Asia find that multi-ethnic societies are less charitable and less able to cooperate to develop public infrastructure.

"Diverse peoples worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other."  Richard Lamm (Co-Director of the Institute for Public Policy Studies at the University of Denver, former Governor of Colorado (1975–1987)) – How to Destroy America
