Houston is great for interracial couples. I see different combos everywhere around here. No one so much as bats an eye.

I should know since I am in one myself

I see you live in MN - do you live in the Twin Cities metro area, or are you outstate somewhere? Minneapolis and its suburbs are very friendly to interracial couples. If you're looking to buy a house you'd certainly be able to afford more there than you would in some of the other recommended places (DC/MD/VA for example - a great area, certainly, but not cheap). Or, if you do live in the Twin Cities now and don't think it's supportive enough, I'd seriously give careful consideration to any other places before moving (and spend some time there before making teh final decision) - the Twin Cities have a good reputation in this regard, and the grass isn't always greener somewhere else. That said, you will have many, many options to choose, especially with your parameters so broad. I'd think carefully about all the other things that will matter beyond just acceptance into the community - a specific type of church? Weather? Type of neighborhood? Home style? Cost of living? Nature? Proximity to cultural amenities? - and then do more research followed by some some initial scouting trips.

I sit here thinking "Isn't everywhere fine with interracial couples" So, I think Portland, Oregon would be great for you. Most of the younger people here don't even see color.

You got that right, my ex-girlfriend was from Portland and she herself was the product of an interracial marriage, and when I went out there I noticed that a number of her friends were either products of interracial relationships or in one themselves

Just on my block alone ( I live in Seattle) we have 3 couples who are black and white,one couple with an Asian lady and her husband and a lesbian couple.(I am one of those 3 couples btw) I'm starting to realize what I view as "normal" in my world is not in the rest of the country. Ive been looking for places to move lately and so far with the exception of maybe San Diego or Berkley,they don't seem to have all of the amenities that Seattle holds ( for me at least) If only I could change the weather.....

Surprisingly, you will do good in larger southern cities. You will also do fantastic in SF or NYC, assuming you make serious coin. I would suggest avoiding the midwest (Chicago excluded).

Jacksonville, North Carolina and Lawton, Oklahoma seem fairly racially integrated going by the following. Some of the college cities in North Carolina I think are also pretty good with this.

CensusScope -- Segregation: Dissimilarity Indices

As you indicate you're Christians I'm thinking, guessing, it might work with that too as those are more religious areas of the country.
