You'll feel comfortable in most of the top 10 cities, but as someone said the west coast is notorious for its high Asian population, thanks to it being the coast along the Pacific Ocean.

I never realized what that vague feeling was until I visited Hawaii. As soon as I talked to the first person there, I knew. It was the difference between being in the majority and not. I was OK merely because I looked like them.

That realization cemented my already-existing conclusion that I would like other areas better than MA. And I do!
Great post. It's not always outright hostility, sometimes you just know you're different and it sticks out. It is a reason I'm looking at SEattle.

For what its worth, below are the largest Asian populations by CSA as of 2017. All above 200k listed:

1) Los Angeles/Riverside: 2,540,727
2) New York City: 2,471,127
3) San Francisco/San Jose: 2,179,269
4) Washington DC/Baltimore: 810,253
5) Chicago: 630,187
6) Seattle/Tacoma: 562,165
7) Houston: 545,022
8) Dallas/Fort Worth: 507,544
9) Boston/Worcester/Providence: 499,101
10) San Diego: 403,200
11) Philadelphia: 403,195
12) Atlanta/Athens: 357,827
13) Sacramento: 326,006
14) Minneapolis/St. Paul: 247,536
15) Las Vegas: 228,082
16) Detroit/Ann Arbor: 226,839

As a disclaimer for Detroit, these numbers do not include people from the Middle East. There are roughly 250k people from the Middle East in Detroit.

I cant imagine that any of the above would create issues for people from Asia.

Anywhere in Canada would be ideal, but namely Vancouver and Toronto.
