I am a Black professional in an interracial relationship with a white woman and currently living in southern VA. I have got job offers in Columbus, OH; Indianapolis IN; Pittsburgh PA and the D.C. and Chicago suburbs. We are looking to start a family and would welcome any advice or opinions about race relations and openess to interracial diversity in these cities.

Of the 4, Chicagoland offers the most jobs, best pay, etc, however the cost of living is quite high. How much can you afford to spend on a house? Thats a good question to start with. Other than that, Ive been to all of those cities several times, and the only one thats remotely close to Chicagoland is Pittsburgh, which is also nice, just alot smaller.

DC is a wonderfully diverse town and a very good employment environment for professionals. I'm sure you find a lot of what you're looking for. Housing costs can be high depending on the area you choose. Another choice are the towns on the subway line west in Virginia . There are lots of nice area in those towns with condos that are of various prices and presumeably cheaper than similar places in DC.
I've heard that Indie has a very reasonable housing market and other costs are lower while the pay is still good. You could buy a house there with nice yard which would be good for a family. Depends on what is at the top of your list-type of work and life-style you're looking for.
Don't know that much about Chicago and Pittsburgh.
