So yeah, dumb.

The answer to this question is: blindfold yourself and throw a dart towards a map. Whatever city you hit qualifies.

Even in a majority Black city like Detroit, you've got some of the most affluent majority-White suburbs in the nation.
I still disagree because some parts of the country are much whiter than others
(well, this would be a factor for some but not all)

Reverse discrimination could be a factor too. I've heard people say things like "Its hard to be white and male in L.A." (not that I'm taking their word for it)

I've also heard that white people in Memphis city limits get discriminated against a lot, not that I'm taking their word for it either.


White people are becoming the minority as well.

So, the question is not as relevant as 'best cities for AA' but it is noteworthy. and its a way to challenge the common double-standard that "its racist when whites say it, but not blacks" , that kind of thing.

The problem with a thread like this is while it could actually be of some use, it mostly attracts all the moral preeners who never miss an opportunity to fluff their feathers about racial issues. It's likely to get closed soon because it will turned into a flame war by the parsons of the PC church. Instead of judging the OP's motives, if you have nothing useful to add to the subject then why not just move along?
BTW, I'd rank Seattle pretty high on the list and New York as well, although New York can appeal to just about any city lover, no matter what their background.

As I white guy, I understand we have needs too...but the great thing about being white in the United States is basically everywhere fits for us. Just don't go to the future.

People say that as if all people of color are the same and Whites are still going to be the largest group, at least pluralistically, for decades to come. With that said, I'd say Salt Lake City, Boise, Burlington VT, Portland ME, Missoula MT and Spokane WA.

Also, I wouldn't call that the "common double standard" either. Think about that for a second.

I am a minority and think this is a legitimate question as long as there are threads (and official articles) talking about the best places for blacks and Hispanics.

Here is my pick (not in any order)

San Francisco

Boston
Austin

I chose these places because relatively low levels of crime
San Francisco, Boston, and Minneapolis have significantly higher violent crime rates than Seattle, Portland, Denver, and Austin, and could be considered more on the medium-high side of things when it comes to violent crime in big American cities. It flips around for property crime though, with Seattle, Portland, and Austin being worse than the others (Denver and Boston being the lowest, with SF and Minneapolis in the middle)...none of them are that high or low though, it's kind of a mid-range level of property crime for all of them.

I always found it funny that those places are included on that website, since SF, Manhattan, and Brooklyn are all under 50% white, and are losing white people (yes, losing them, despite the last decade's hipster/yuppie invasion in both cities). Speaking for SF, the city has been losing white residents constantly since the 1950s...it was 85% white in 1950, and is 42% white now.
