Actually, most of us could care less what you do in your personal lives and really don't want to know about it. A privacy thing, you know, altho soooome people might ask.... Anyway, come on!!!!! We need nurses!!!!! and there is a wonderful UNC-Greensboro that has an undergrad/grad/doctoral nursing dept. and a strong arts and education - heck, it's a great public university, And there are other 4-yr colleges and universities and community colleges - you guys will love it (I hope) - and food places and shopping. Cone is a great place to work I'm told and might have some insights on where to look for apts./houses - welcome!!

No doubt about it. Give census.gov a shot and see how "diverse" the north is by percentages.

Wasn't the Woolworth's sit- in in the '60's? And the Greensboro shootout....that was between the Klan and the Communists in about 1984 or '85 right? If that's the one. I don't believe it was racially motivated...both protagonists were Caucasian.

Oh, don't worry. Down here, everything is either more or less than the NYPD has shot unarmed black people, so we're even. You won't see much racism outside of the hills of SC, where it's really bad. Don't go to SC. They're all psycho. On racism in NC: don't believe them. They say a lot of things to scare away the yankees, but it's a farce. The Budweiser bottles thrown to the side of the road are there for the same purpose.

Default I Understand Very Well

I do understand about interracial relationships....I guess I can care less about what others thinks....and I do know how it is growing up a beautiful biracial female....I was just saying do worry about what others think live your life for you.

Heck, I live in AZ and was raised in cali and I even got looks and comments living in these places. We do embrace our relationships, but the truth is, to some people we are different and some look down upon this. It's not that we would change for ANYBODY but I darn sure wont be moving somewhere that has a reputation for problems of this nature. It only makes sense to want to feel like we will be accepted. So, your comments, even though not directed at me, seem very illogical and downright hurtful. I mean honestly it would keep ME from moving if it meant my family's happiness and comfort would be in jeopardy........
