You must live in a small town or rural area. The cities aren't like that at all. Not even all the small towns are like that. Where do you live? The Panhandle? Out west? Deep East Texas?

Although it can be harsh to admit, sometimes locals can have a good reason to be unaccepting of outsiders, as the outsiders can make the state even worse: *cough*Florida*cough*

You'll find Texas is a very accepting state if your open minded. Evne the christians here are open minded people who are will to accept new things. You most likely probably live in a small town somewhere in Texas.

Hawaii and California are probably the most accepting states. Keep in mind that Hawaii have the highest number of multiracial people in the US.

It seems to never get mentioned, perhaps because it isn't mainland. But I think Hawaii is the most accepting state. Maybe the tropical location and geographic location help, but everyone seems so friendly and has a live and let live attitude.

I would say California. People really don't care where you are from "originally". Hawaii is a great place, but there is some hostility towards mainland whites.

Having been to both Hawaii and Detroit, I would say the hostility towards Whites in Detroit is definitely a 100 times worst than it is in Hawaii. I don't recommend White people ever ride the public buses in that city, I have had some very bad experiences.

NYC is really accepting. A lot moreso than in the past. Gentrification is happening all over, especially in Harlem. Lots of whites moving in. With all the different ethnic backgrounds, it's difficult not to be at least a little accepting of other cultures.
