Just wanted to see what you know about this area. Is it safe? Will an interracial couple have problems there?

Laurinburg is one of the lowest income areas in the state. Scotland County has the highest un-employment rate in the state. The crime rate is much higher than average, but you could certainly find a safe place to live out in the country. Here's the CD profile: http://www.city-data.com/city/Laurin...-Carolina.html

I don't think it is a very progressive area, but I don't think an inter-racial couple would be in danger. Here's a useful thread with a very positive report at the end: Work in Laurinburg, but where would you recommend living?

Do interracial couples have problems *anywhere* anymore? There are lots of AA's in the south... we've been coupling longer than any other part of the country, lol.

No, that won't be an issue in LBG. There are lots of interracial couples there, as many Native Americans and African Americans call that area home. It is economically depressed and there isn't much to do there though. It's a shame because it used to be a promising and quaint little town.

Laurinburg is quite a depressing, ugly little town. It is very small and smack dab in the middle of nowhere. Unless you are getting a great salary and a fantastic deal on a house, I would really recommend against it. It is not the safest area you could live, for sure.
