Where being a minority is "neutral" and nobody cares and it's not an issue. Not the "racism doesn't exist anymore you whiny brown person derp derp derp!" kind of thing you hear nowadays, but where it really isn't a thing. The kind of place that seems to have been untouched by the past few centuries of America's racial baggage.

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.

When I lived in Sacramento the place seemed pretty laid back when it came to racial stuff...particularly that Old City neighborhood I lived in. I dont know what the actual stats were in terms of integration and attitudes, but by far the most integrated and least hung-up on racial stuff....of any place Ive lived.

First generation immigrants tend to stay in enclaves. But it gives me hope when you see their kids hanging out with other others fram all ethnic backgrounds. Lots of people of mixed races and ethnicities around here, too
