Question Best State and City to live in as an Interracial Couples

I am a Caucasean male and my wife is African American. I lived all my life in Minnesota and my wife in Indiana and now Minnesota. We are strong Christians and are servant oriented in helping others in times of need. We are looking for the best place to live as an interracial couple, and as new empty nesters. Any location in the USA is open, just want to be totally accepted as to the life-style God has chosen for us. My wife has always dreamed of owning a house and we are very anxious to fulfill her dream which is ours, but are needing your help in finding the "ideal" community--rural or suburban.

I live in suburban Charlotte and there are many mixed race couples/families in my church. The racial climate in general here in the Charlotte area and NC is very good. You guys would be very welcome here! Homes are affordable here. We have a nice, sunny 4-season climate. The economy is one of the nation's strongest. PM me if you want any specific info. Good luck!!!

I've been wondering the same thing. I'm Black, Hubby's White. We're lifelong Bostonians. We're not churchgoers, but we're planning to raise a kid. We're also looking for a place with some kind of public transit, where you can buy a house for less than an arm and a leg.

I live in NJ, in the Philly-metro area...an interracial couple is not a big deal here at all, it's pretty common and very accepted. The only thing that isn't tolerated here is...intolerance.

Interracial relationships of every possible combination are accepted and very common in much of the DC area, particularly Northern Virginia. I would say, as part of a completely random non-scientific observation, that on any given trip to the local mall right by me which offers a good cross-section of the area's population, around 20% of the couples walking hand in hand or arm in arm are interracial and no one cares.

dullnboring is right on the money with NoVA. there are people from over 100 countries here. Trust me you will not stick out as a interracial couple. My church First AG has a lot of interracial couples. If you can afford a house here i think NoVa will be a blessing to you.

Well, I just want to add to this conversation. There is a difference between being accepted inter-racially as a black man and white woman versus a white man and a black woman IMHO. Many people in black communities openly scoff at a white man being with a black woman, and I've personally experienced this. This doesn't seem to happen much at all the other way around (black man/white woman). I'm from the west coast and I think it is incredibly tolerant compared to most regions of the US (I'm now living in the midwest), even in the smaller towns. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.
