2 of your requirements in your op was a metro area that was "by" the coast and it didn't get "very" cold. So, if you're waivering those 2 requirements, you might want to check out Austin, that is if you can afford it. It's kindve expensive to live there if you don't make very much money.

It's not "by" the coast, but, it's not very far. It's about 149 miles as the crow flies from the State Capitol Building in downtown Austin to the most nearest point of the Gulf of Mexico.

And, it doesn't get very cold in Austin either. There might be a few days it gets into the 20's and even fewer days the temperature dips into the teens for a few hours but almost everyone of those days the temperature will recover and go above freezing. A nice warm day in January and February is more common than a day of snow and ice. A nice warm day in January and February is a good excuse to take off work and enjoy it. A day of snow and ice will shut down the city in a New York minute.

Read the first post again and it should be obvious that diversity is a code word for racial minorities. OP singled out white people when discussing political leaning.

I just have a hard time believing that someone who's that nervous around minorities would want to live in a large, top ten city. It is easy enough for rich white folks to segregate into exclusive suburbs in all of the large metros but to make it an explicit requirement for the city is just bizarre in this day and age.
I agree. Cities are there to promote diversity. Just not sure what you are looking for.

There are a lot of neighborhoods and zip codes in the DC area that are mainly white. They are mostly affluent places though. It would be difficult to live there without making 6 figures at least. Working class whites are kind of scarce.

If it's working class whites, how about a place like Pittsburgh?
