I guess cities with least amount of other races(IE cities that are 95% white, aren't gonna be that aware of of racial stereotypes of blacks.)

Yes they are, because of the media. Like Wyoming, where there isn't many black people, they probably believe everything they see on BET and other media sources.

Exactly. That can be even worse because they rely on the media for stereotypes since there aren't many blacks there in the first place and haven't seen many blacks or other cultures living just like they do in real life.

Oh yeah. So true, I didn't think of it that way. Good point.

Seattle is pretty oblivious of racial stereotypes. It's a very white city, relatively speaking, but I don't know of a single person who is racist in this city. I'm sure there's some somewhere. But people in general are pretty laid back here when it comes to race. I've met more than a few black people who said they felt like REAL PEOPLE when visiting, as in, white people didn't divert their eyes or avoid them. And most people here are knowledgable enough to know that not all black people are like the rappers and know that not all asians are introverted social outcasts. Even muslim folks here feel more accepted.

I have yet to hear anything bad about Seattle from people in real life or on the internet, must be a heck of a city.

I don't know about non-awareness per-se, but the most racially/ethnically diverse place I ever lived was Sacramento. A city that is pretty much off everyones radar, but is pretty good for people socially interacting between races, less segregated than most, it seems. You dont get that big black vs white thing you see here in places like Dayton or some other places Ive been...its more a mix of peoples. Just my opnion from having live there, don't know the actual stats on diversity and itegration for Sacto.

I just find that to be so true though. I mean in California, So Cal is really racist and hostile but Northern Cal is a different story.

Move to Canada. It's a very non-racist, colorblind country. Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Montreal and Toronto are some big cities up there.
