OP, you can check the census stats for every city in LA County (or other CA counties). California as a whole is only 6.6% Black (term used by the US Census), and some cites like, say, Huntington Beach are only 1%.

Here's the link:

Bigger problem, where are you going to park that truck? There are going to be more restrictions on that then on housing.

The Blacks in the Marina are mostly Ballers - athletes.

This is only amongst the Mexican gang members. Mexican gangs and Black gangs are at an all out war right now in L.A. because over the last 20 years Mexicans have been migrating into traditional black neighborhoods like South L.A. and they are competing for turf. This conflict doesn't exist much outside of L.A., and in Nor Cal blacks and Mexicans get along just fine.

As for the original post, the more diverse beach areas in So Cal are in San Diego (close to the city, not up in North County), Oceanside, and the beach towns in the Los Angeles area down to Long Beach (except for Palos Verdes). Ventura is fairly diverse too (lots of Hispanics). However, if you're looking for places with low crime, you wouldn't want to go to places like Oceanside or Venice or Ventura. Everywhere else is very low crime and most (if not all) are very accepting of other races. The only places that might be a little more "localized" are places like San Clemente and Palo Verdes. These are old school surfer towns with a large percentage of locals who have been there for generations. I don't think they are racist, they just don't like outsiders as much, and an African-American is an obvious outsider in those communities. I'm mixed and I go to San Clemente about once every other month. I've only had one incident, when some young punks rode by on bikes and yelled "White Power! White Supremacy!" They were young, about middle school age, and I'd go to jail for beating them all up so I just laughed. I could've sworn one of the kids was Asian too, lol. I think they just heard the phrase somewhere and were trying to be cool. Some would include Huntington Beach and Newport Beach in this "localized" list, but Huntington Beach has grown from its days as a 1970s small hardcore surfer town, and Newport is just filled with yuppies, they aren't racist, they just don't like poor people too much. If you have money, they don't care what color your skin is : )
