This is a great posting and in defense of texasuser, not ignorant or unmannered at all,

Montana is mostly white, however a few cities are diverse including bozeman, billings, and yes the native american reservations due add to the diversity.

Its not very populated due to their not being any core cities that people usually reside in. Take a look at south dakota, north dakota, similar situation. Idaho is a different though , more diverse, and more metro boise,

It will be of interest to see if montana changes over the next 20-30 years and becomes much more populated, however its rural in nature, and usually it says the same if you look at similar states, or atleast similar areas of a state.

Montana isn't special at all except that many areas are kind of stuck in the fifties and don't appear to be over crowded yet. Some areas west of the divide seem very crowded though.
The reason the population is so low is because there really aren't any jobs that can support the high cost of living here. Many folks move here after seeing lots of nice looking areas to live while on vacation only to pack up and go back home when their savings are depleted because they can't make enough here to live here.

The point is, did they stop at your house? Did they knock on the door and ask who lived there? Did they come in and look around?

Where did they get the numbers? Who are they trying to kid?

And they shouldn't! But they would if they thought they could get away with it. They're slowly working us up to it.

In the larger cities, you have a mixed bag. If you are persistent and good at what you do, you can find something. Agriculture is a huge sector (for obvious reasons), but the timber/mining industry has tanked. In towns like ours, tourism is key in the summer, but there isn't much in the winter time. We have lots of retirees here as well.

HAHA!! best answer ever! And don't forget that if you're in the eastern half, July and August are grey and star-shaped, because you can't see thru the dust and cracks on your windshield

Gang numbers usually come from tracking (and infiltrating) drug-trafficking operations, which for the most part are run by major gangs and their affiliates or subsidiaries.

I was a bit surprised to see Crips and Bloods are in MT (they're the major gangs in SoCal, and have moved up to being fulltime "businessmen") but anywhere there's demand for recreational chemicals that are presently illegal and can't be concocted in your bathtub, there will be a black-market to supply 'em, and that's where the gangs come in. Cocaine really surged their numbers back in the 1980s. Dunno what their primary "product" is nowadays.

When I lived in Bozeman there were 3 or 4 guys who were the affiliate for some out-of-state pot-running gang. Sometimes you'd see 'em down on the lower east side, making deals. One winter day one of 'em lost a roll of cash, which one of my workmates found and kept. ($3000!) Next day the gangies spent the whole morning frantically searching the street.

Great Falls is pretty diverse too due to the Air Force Base. They have the highest concentration of Black people in Montana and the state has it's share of "Hispanics/Latinos" and Native Americans too. I would say that Great Falls is the most diverse city, with Missoula(has U of Montana), Bozeman(has Mont. St. U.), Billings and maybe Butte and Helena. You might see diversity in the small towns near the Reservations as well.
