My vote goes to Seattle. Sure, it's mostly white, but not entirely white, and I got the impression that if you're black it's "neutral" as opposed to it being "a thing." I never felt like a minority until I left L.A. (I'm Mexican-American), and I didn't feel like one in Seattle even though it's lily white for the most part. It's like the past century-and-a-half of racial history didn't really affect them up there. You could forget that you are a minority, living there long enough. Well, that's just my own impression.
I'm not sure what your question is here A minority would be under 50% a majority would be over 50% . Most would be closer to 100%.

A city minority white people be under 50% . The city of LA puts Hispanics has 48% they are still minority when they get to to 51% they are majority.

Well 28% people in LA are white so that would be minority.Almost 10% are black that would be minority.


In Seattle 66% are white not a minority but not most but a majority. Well Asian are 13% and blacks 7% so they would be minority.

It may seem that way on the surface, but Houston is still very segregated.

The usual suspects... Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, Montreal, etc.

^I'd like to voluntarily nominate Minneapolis off of that list. Now I don't think race relations there are all that bad by any means, but I think there is some tension there compared to some other places (like SF, Seattle, etc.). That may be because the minority population in the Twin Cities is very very poor compared to the U.S. average, and many non-whites (black, Asian, etc.) are not from America. So in addition to the typical racial barriers, Twin Cities minorities (on average) also have to deal with socio-economic and cultural barriers as well, which I think causes a bit of extra tension in what would otherwise be described as a very open and liberal place to live.

Nah, big picture, TC has it pretty good. Obviously there's some very tough stuff, but it's not bad at all compared to like St. Louis and Detroit and NYC. Every American city has some version of north Minneapolis. Most of the city is really well integrated, and as you say, it's very open and liberal. Just like Seattle/Portland/Montreal, race relations are generally very positive and easygoing.

Minority experiences are not all equal. As a Chinese American I feel perfectly comfortable in San Francisco but I wouldn't want to be black here. My Chinese American friend feels the opposite way in Baltimore.

I wasn't talking about N. Mpls., I was talking about the general makeup of the non-white population.

How about we reduce it to: white = majority; non-white = minority.

I have to second this, because I lived this. Growing up in the L.A. area, going to high school and then college there, I had Arabs, Persians, Indians, every flavor of Asian, etc. etc. etc., as friends. Some of them quite close. Not to mention whites and Mexicans. This is absolutely, absolutely true.

Educated Americanized young people regardless of ethnic background who all live in the same area have no reason not to mingle. They just don't.
