Most stereotypes have some basis in reality. Therefore any minority will do better in a city where there are fewer members of his race (what ever it may be) so people won't have had an opportunity to already form opinions. He will be unique. He can be judged on his own merits. Unfortunatly minorities seem to do just the opposit and stick together in groups......or is that a stereotype?

I've noticed a lot of my friends in Cleveland are from very diverse backgrounds and hang out with diverse crowds.

Take that however you want.

Well, I'm a minority. I can say that I haven't been to a place in the U.S. or Canada where I felt outright discrimination because of being a minority.

I know some people like to stick to their own cliques and all that. And there are of course some idiotic individuals out there. But overall, I've never been to a community where most people became hostile or turned their heads away when they saw I was a minority. I doubt there is such a place outside KKK gatherings or something.

Or maybe it's just because I'm so charming and good-looking and make a lot of money. I don't know.

The media pumps up these stereotypes. There is no escape.

I think New York City might take this one, it's always been a city where people rise above stereotypes. If you want blissful unawareness of what those stereotypes might even be, try Salt Lake City.
