Hi all,

My wife and I are a mixed race couple (she is Pakistani and I am American). I was wondering what the 'mood' is like in Greensboro towards mixed race families and children. We have 3 kids. We are considering relocating to Greensboro and are wondering about this. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Default More info...

Oh, we are also Christian and would be looking for a good church to go to that would accept us as well. Most churches are fine, but we have experienced some discrimination in some churches before, sadly.

Thanks!

Pakistani and American are both nationalities. What races are we talking here?

Pakistani is also a race. (if you want to get specific, it is of Indian heritage). Pakistani and White...is that better?

Like most places, the people of class and culture will not care, the jerks "might" have something to say, but I would ignore them. Greensboro is ok.

It certainly appears harmless, doesn't it, but maybe someone can explain to me (honestly) why this comment seems so condescending and just sets me on fire?

There are five colleges here and solid block of educated individuals. Moving to a middle or upper class neighborhood would be a good bet if possible. There are some rednecks here, but it is a minority.
