My family is relocating to north Carolina and I had a friend just inform to make sure to stay away from certain smaller towns as they can still be very prejudice against other racist.

Default response to your question

I do not think that you will find the people in Clemmons or Lewisville to be racist at all. A good number of the people in these areas are not originally from here and have lived in multiple places. So, it does not necessarily have the small-town feel that some small towns in NC may have (this is particularly true about Clemmons I think). Overall, the people are friendly, and I think it would be easy to feel at home here regardless of your race or background.

I figured you meant "prejudiced against other races"...what you typed has a different meaning. lol

IMO, the smaller towns are more likely to have issues, but you can find racism anywhere in the country. I think it's less likely to be a problem in areas where a higher percentage of people are from (or have lived) in other parts of the country (to be exposed to other cultures, ethnic groups, etc) - but that's no guarantee. You'll find wonderful, welcoming people in small towns, and you'll find nasty, bigoted/racist people in larger cities.

I haven't found racism in Clemmons but I'm in the majority and might not notice it. I think you could call the churches and get good information or hang out at a supermarket and check with members of your race.
