Kingman for "minorities"? or did you really mean "How is Kingman for black people?" ??? Because there are definitely "minorities" there, but there are not many black people at all.

Kingman for minorities is what it is. There is a decent sized Hispanic community and a very small Asian and Middle Eastern community, but that's about it. There are not many black folks at all. It is a very conservative town. I would liken it to being somewhat caught in the late 1970s/early 1980s which, for many people, is very ideal.

I would not advise you to move to Kingman for the fact that I do not believe you would be comfortable there. If I were black, I know I wouldn't be. You might look into Phoenix or Tucson if you really want to be in Arizona.

Yeah... I was trying to resist the urge to post this but yeah... don't come to Kingman, you deserve better.

Just got called an "F-ing N-bomb" by some crazy woman outside my work today... for no good reason. It's been a while but yeah... I'm only half black-spanish but people here are too stupid to care because many are too uneducated here anyway.

Hell, I've heard guys casually talk using N-bombs among F-words because they feel SO threatened by "us taking over" it since Obama took office. I voted libertarian and people just assume I voted for Obama...

Can't wait to move out of this place.

Thin skinned? No... I've put up with enough crap from the people here that it's actually desensitizing me to it. It just irks me that even in 2013 these wanna-be confederates wish it were 1890 again. Kingman has always been pretty bad when it comes to treatment of African-Americans, if I could find the picture my parents took of the sign back in the early 80s "Don't let the sun set behind you" I'd gladly post it here. I NEVER had this problem in Phoenix or Ohio.

Plus its a small town, so chances are high when you encounter it compared to Vegas.
