Interesting fact since you're from Pittsburgh (?)

The same man designed the layout for Pittsburgh & Louisville's streets. He did P'burgh's all too narrow and was exiled. When designing Louisville he learned his lesson and made all the streets really wide (like 6-8 lanes across including parking lane)

That is for the old city limits. Jefferson County is 75% White, 20% Black, and 2% for both Asian and Hispanic, not that it really matters.

Oh, I keep forgetting about the "merger" since I still see things the same way I did growing up.

Have you thought about Austin? It hase the University of Texas, which is a great school. Austin's a pretty safe place. It's not very white, but you definitely won't find very much racial tention here.

Which would be the best(with good university, weather etc) middle sized city(100'000-500'000) where the majority of population(90% or more) is white English speaking people and where the lowest crime rate is?
It is not at all that I don't like other races but I've heard that white folks sometimes are not well treated in some areas in U.S.

Thanks for your opinions,
papa.
Here's my two cents: If anyone gives you a hard time (in the form of racism) it is going to be from the whites. Minorities have better things to do then to bother some dude from another country. Another thing, coming from Latvia, you will be a minority and depending on where you go you might get treated like a 'effin' foreigner'; especially in the whitest parts. My advice--stick to the places that are a little bit more mixed.
