Doesn't matter. I grew up around mostly black & white, and we got along for the most part. I'd rather live somewhere where one race isn't overly dominant (over 70%) but I put safety & location over racial demographics when choosing a place to live.

Why are we only talking about white and black people? Asians, Latinos, Native Americans and Pacific Islanders don't exist or have preferences? The OP mentioned white people for SF, yet the city is 55% non-white.

it has to do with history. many, many families of american blacks in the north originated in the south...so ppl go back to where they came from. usually this applies to older black ppl.

my grandmother lives in the south, after having lived in the north for a long, long time. a few of my great aunts and aunts lived there already or moved there after she did.

i would never ever ever EVER EVER EVER ever ever ever

Reverse this, and this is how millions and millions of people in the South feel about your region. This includes many races, not just AA.
