I'm not sure how a town can be "[a] racist" and I'm not sure what prompted you to ask this question. Individuals can be racists and racist individuals certainly live everywhere. This includes Matthews, Mint Hill, Indian Trail and the entire state of New Jersey. Frankly put, your question is more than a little bit offensive.

is it good.
You are going to have to give us a little more detail. What do you consider "good?"

Please explain what you mean by multicultural. Are you asking whether there are people of different races, ethnicities, religions and national origins living in these towns? Also, how does the fact that you are from New Jersey impact your desire to live in a "multicultural" place.

FTR I went to HS in the area and my two best friends were originally from NJ and NY.

Generally speaking the towns are clean. They are a lot closer to Princeton than Trenton if that is what you are asking.

Please don't start using "y'all" until you've been down here for at least a little while.

Actually I think the answers "HookEmHorns" gave you were right to the point. I am from the north and these are not the "usual questions from us North people".
Better go back and rethink where you want to live.

I couldn't agree more. If move somewhere looking for racism then you will find it.

Wow a couple of those comments weren't really that nice. My mother always told me that if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all.

I will soon be relocating to the area and I thought it was a good series of questions.

A person knows if they are living in a "Stereotypically Racist" area, whether they want to admit it or not.

And southern people are not they only ones that say y'all. I use it all the time and I am not from the south.

But...that is "just my opinion"

Default Info on Charlotte

Charlotte is indeed a multicultural town.
And the areas you talked about are nice:
Mint Hill is relatively close to Charlotte, but still offers a lot of green, even pastures with cows! Very good connections to Uptown.
Matthews is a nice little town southeast of Charlotte, with its own identity, but also with all the convenience people are looking for, such as shopping, theater, etc. Excellent commuting connections through I-485, Independence Rd, Providence Rd.
Indian Trail is a bit more rural, and a bit farther away from Charlotte, in the southeast corner. Nice place to live, if you like that kind of more rural setting.
All these places have their own charm, please come and see!
Let me know if you'd like more info.
Regards,
Frans

I live in Union county (Waxhaw), but I really like the Matthews and Mint Hill areas. Matthews is a pretty well-established town, has a lot of shopping nearby, and is convenient to multiple employment centers (uptown, University Area, and Ballantyne). Mint Hill is more rural feeling than Matthews, but is still convenient to shopping (some new shopping is coming in near the center of town, as well as a new outdoor mall which should start development in the near future... Bridges at Mint Hill) as well as the main employment areas. I'm not a huge fan of Indian Trail... feels a little too rural to me, and it's a little less convenient than Matthews and Mint Hill for commuting.
