Anything you want? If you do not consider yourself a minority or disadvantaged or an active advocate for people from these backgrounds, you are not going to qualify for diversity fellowships or special consideration by the Mathematics Opportunity Committee. I don't think the diversity statement matters for anything else. I know someone at Berkeley who wrote a single sentence along the lines of, "I am a white male from a middle-class background." Didn't seem to hurt him.
Stanford is AWESOME. I have never been happier! The sheer amount of math around me is a bit overwhelming, but it's so inspiring to be surrounded by people who are at the top of their game all day long. And the campus is just gorgeous. I keep having to remind myself that I am not actually on vacation...
