In the southwest/West Coast (Austin, L.A.) I've never once heard people use the "N" word. Yet I have a friend who's family from the Chicago 'burbs was openly using the "N" word at law school graduation...it actually would have been quite amusing if it weren't so offensive.

And I stayed at a bed and breakfast in the Catskills with my fiance, and in the morning the lady who made breakfast railed against minorities in the city.

Thats totally ignorant to say when you refer the NORTH as openly racist.

I don't see it in NJ or NY too much, not really any of the NYC metro to often. But i can easily say that the south is more racist, maybe not a whole lot, but when your comparing it to ALL of the north and ALL of the south.. south it is

I was even in Fort Myers (not a good area) and saw open racist, i was visiting my grandfather and we went to a resturant and i came with my wife, whos black, and people stared hard and some looked with a rude face that had WTF all over it. Also, i saw a bumper sticker that said "Yankees, cant live with em, cant shoot them anymore" (that might not be racist but it's VERY prejudice to the north."

you don't get out much huh? I've heard people use the "N" word all over Texas from Blacks to Whites to Mexicans. It's not about being racist, it has now became another "slang" word. I don't use it myself, however, my friends and family do.

People don't feed this troll either, like the OP he is trying to start a flame war.
