I am a single mom of three kids. 11,10, and 7. I was raised in Jackson Ms. That was an experience, and I really don't wanna go through again. Im wanting to move back to MS, but not the city. I'm hoping to move to a peaceful quiet town. Im in no way racist. I love my black people, but not the ignorant one's that make the good one's like me look bad. I live in Alexandria, LA. Been here for about 8 years. Ready for a hugh change. Does these town/cities exsist in MS? I am a writer and crave my country settings.
Someone please help

One of the little towns out from Hattiesburg would probably be what you're looking for. I love it down there. The people are country and sophisticated at the same time, and not as moralistic as in so many places. Plus, it's really pretty down there, and the men are blonder and better looking, on average.

You'll be within driving distance of Southern: so the kids can go to an excellent university, without leaving home. And Southern will generate all sorts of cultural/social opportunities for you, as a writer. Sumrall, for one, has a microscopic downtown, that's cute as a button on a bug. And there are little burgs like that all around.

Sorry your experience with Alexandria has been so horrific. Wasn't that America's Murder Capitol, maybe a decade back?

Oh, and you might also want to look at New Albany. Entirely different climate zone, and a really pretty part of the state.

You're looking for a peacful, quiet town? That describes almost the entire state. How small you do you have in mind? A few small towns with nice countryside that come to mind include Meadville, Lucedale, Columbia, Kosciusko, Booneville, Corinth, Ripley, Wesson, Eupora, Poplarville, Brookhaven. Since you're a writer you might consider a small town with a large community college which include several of the tows above.

You could have left the "racist" part out of this request. Everything you're asking for is listed, racism wouldn't have come to my mind if you didn't say nothing about it. Ppl could have offered towns to you and you're on "city-data," you could have pull the city stats to determine the racial % of each town. You wanted to move back to MS and not the city .... where did you loving your black ppl come from?

If you are looking for a town along the coast, one with a good school system for your children, an "artistic" community with a great, funky little downtown and a "doable" drive to larger cities...come to Ocean Springs.

Thank-you for your feed back. I have been hearing good things so far about Hattiesburg. This has been much needed help!
