Hi there,
I accepted an job offer in Florence, north Kentucky. We are young, Asian/Black biracial family of 4. We would like to find a neighborhood which is welcoming and racially diversified with good schools. My kids have been growing up in places with a well mixed of different racial backgrounds, that's why I am a bit concerned residing in North Kentucky considering the demographics there. Boone county KY seems to be relatively diversified, I am much interested to know how is the experience residing there as a minority? We are also open to the idea of residing in Cincinnati, within ~30 minutes commuting time. Anderson Township on Cincinnati seems to an viable choice. Desired price levels of house is in 250-300K range.
Any suggestion is much appreciated, thank you!

My family is comprised of white me, black spouse, and three bi-racial children. I grew up in Florence, KY. We moved to Indianapolis in 2012 for me to attend graduate school, and now we are back because I have a residency in Cincinnati and my extended family (who lives in Florence) provides childcare. I definitely wouldn't live in NKY if my childcare situation was different. There are many wonderful things about this area, and it is slowly becoming more diverse, but racism is still a frustrating issue for me. Also, while diversity is increasing, my son attends school in Florence and the only non-White staff person I can think of is the custodian. Every teacher is white....... I hope you get some advice that is helpful for your family regarding better places to live. Depending on my employment situation, we may move across the river which would be wonderful for me. I've heard Northside, Pleasant Ridge, and Silverton are good, but might be a bit lower than your targeted price range and/or far out for you:-).
