If you're interracial (Cant believe we're talking about this in 2017), be happy with your family and that's all.

who cares what third parties might think, if they don't like you let it be, be happy with what you have which is your family!
It's not what people think, we want to be, especially if you have kids, to be in an accepting environment. You don't want your kids to be harassed every day at school.

Because it's a life or death situation. If you haven't experienced it, then you don't have to say anything. It's a common concern amongst minorities for a reason.

That being said, I've only spent a few days in Denver and didn't have a problem whatsoever (young black male). I think the main problem will come from white liberals who will say or act offensively without intent due to being in a pretty homogeneous metro area.

I do know that Colorado Springs is quite conservative.

I was born in Denver and live in Colorado Springs. The Springs reputation as a religious, right-wing bastion precedes itself. We are less conservative here than Denver is liberal. Last election, Denver was 80/20 democrat and COS was 56/44 republican. Although COS is known for its reputation as a the "Christian Mecca", church attendance in the city is less than the US average.

When I moved from Denver in 1999, Denver seemed more segregated. Hispanics on the west and north, AAs on the east, and whites on the south. COS seems much more integrated, although we do have socio-economic pockets, such as the Broadmoor. I believe the military has contributed to race not playing as big a factor as it does in other cities.

Both are great places to live. COS is a libertarian, live-and-let-live place that most find is much different than its image on the national stage.

Best wishes on finding a place that make you happy! I don't think you can lose between the two.
