I am about to complete formalities at last for entering USA. I'm going to study in the States for about 4 or 5 years.
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.

I don't think reverse racism is really a huge problem here. You'd be treated fairly just about everywhere I'd think. I live in Omaha, a city of over 400,000 with a metro area of over 700,000. We have nice people, and it's a great place to live. Our only major downside is our weather. We have hot summers and cold winters. We have Creighton University, a very prestigious school, and University of Nebraska at Omaha, which is a bit more affordable, along with a few other schools in the area. I encourage you to check us out. I'm pretty sure we aren't 90% white, but I don't regret that, and I think for the full American experience you need to be exposed to all our facets of culture.

Louisville is ranked as the 8th safest large city in the US and has a lower metro area crime rate than Omaha http://www.morganquitno.com/met05a.pdf

Louisville has a great nightlife, park system, and many thriving historic neighborhoods. It is home to the Univ. of Louisville & Bellermine Univ. What is your field of study?

I doubt highly that we have 90% white people. According toModerator cut: link to a competitors site removed we are about 63% white and 33% black.

What do you mean by "reverse racism"? Isn't all racism the same?

To the OP
The whitest areas of the U.S. as a whole are going to be the Northwest, New England, great Plains, and the Midwest to a certain extent.

Don't be afraid of going to a place with fewer than 90% whites though. There is some form of racism everywhere, but places that whites are actively targeted are pretty rare I'd say. Alot of great cities are going to be in between 50% white and 90% so don't rule these out. I don't blame you for wanting to study near people who look like you-its just human naturea although im sure you will be branded a racist on here.

Ever check out South Carolina? Specifically Columbia and Charleston.(University of South Carolina, College of Charleston look them up) They have good universities and although each city is only a little bigger than100,000 the metro areas are each over half a million. There are plenty of black people in South Carolina but the majority are good people and we get along fine. Hope this helps
