I've been keeping up with the politics in the US so far and I will say that it does go well beyond just politics itself. Right now, it seems like there is a lot of animosity going around and though I won't pick sides (not voting in this election), a certain candidates stance on some issues has translated poorly to some American voters. I have been reading news reports of people being attacked in certain areas of the country for having a certain ethnic appearance (usually along the lines of South Asian, Arab, and brown Hispanic).

Right now I live in Miami where the racism isn't bad at all and people seem to get along for the most part but I've been wanting to move elsewhere. Then I get on the news and hear so many of these horrible things happening to where it somewhat disturbs me. Most of my friends have been of different races growing up and we got along just well. I have had white friends I got along well with and it seems like there isn't too much hostility between Anglos and latinos in South Florida compared to other parts of the country.

What other areas of the USA would be good for a young guy that looks "brown" (not white black or asian but "brown" like Wilmer Valderrama) and wants to hang out and associate with people of various races?

Well, four of our states are majority/minority which means that white, non Hispanic people make up less than fifty percent of the population. Those states are:

New Mexico

I live in Texas. Doesn't seem to be much of a sense of racism here. My family is very multiracial and multicultural and everyone seems to love it here.

The Northeast Megalopolis (Boston to DC) would be overall most recommended in my opinion.

Maybe Queens, NY or Jersey City. Can't testify but both areas are incredibly culturally diverse and are no strangers to immigrants.

Nowhere, there are tiny pockets or isolated instances like there have always been and then the media blows it way out of proportion to stir up animosity. Don't buy into it.

Most places are fine. The media and message boards blow things out of proportion

Politics and "the news" is what perpetuates these stereotypes of racism. Stirring the pot. Searching for phantoms around every corner. No matter where you live in the U.S., you will find a few racists among ANY race. But most people within ANY race are going to be just fine. Region of the country means absolutely nothing. There will be awesome people and idiots anywhere. The hyper-obsession with race these days is what's creating the issues we have. The politicians and news outlets are having a field day with it. Sadly, too many people fall for much of what the media feeds us. To say one region is racist and another region is as pure as the driven snow is biased and bigoted in its own right. Bottom line: forget about race and region. We're just all one people.
