What I noticed about CAlifornia, especially in the middle class to affluent areas is that when you see a group of High school or college age friends hanging out, it seems like every race is represented. Gives you hope.

Texas does as well at least in the major cities. Though there are places like the RGV where it can be 90% Hispanic and there are places like East Texas and the Panhandle where it can get 90% Caucasian. But the major cities usually have a good bit of diversity.
You can find lots of integration outside of the major cities in Texas. I think Texas could compete with California when it comes to different races being integrated.

^That really is true. I know it may be hard for people to believe, but I see it all the time and sometimes when I travel to those real small towns, I'm surprised by the diversity that they exhibit.

Out of places that I have been I have to say Michigan. Detroit is the most segregated city in the country and places like Flint, Saginaw, St. Joes/Benton Harbor are incredibly segregated as well. It is also one of the most racist states that I have been too.

Eventhough Buffalo and NYC are known for being ranked high for segregation, NY depends on which city or town you are in. I believe that out of the major cities in NY State, Albany might be the best. There are smaller metros where you probably see more integration like Binghamton, Poughkeepsie and Newburgh.

Also, for a Northern state, you can find small towns that are integrated/"diverse" too.

It shocked me when I went to MSU how segregated it was. I found out that MSU is one of the most segregated campuses in the US when I went there too. On the other hand, cities like Ann Arbor, Kalamazoo and Lansing seemed to be better in that regard.

I am less familiar with those cities, but have heard that Kalamazoo is very segregated as well and I would assume Lansing is too if the university is????

Actually, comparably speaking, those two were less segregated than other cities in Michigan. Same with Ann Arbor.
