Traffic isnt good either.Not saying even a majority are racist,but also it was more than a couple.Its the nasty stares you get that i found bad.a few decided to say something,mostly(they thought) that i couldnt hear.One seriously went to town about me being British.

It got to the stage i stopped going out and i did say to the lovely girl on reception what it was all about.She said "Its because people came here in the 50s and 60s from further south believing equal rights would never come and brought a lasting hate with them thats gone down the generations".She was black.

Oddly enough ive been in Alabama where things were once worlds worse, and i got nothing but friendliness

Go figure

The only place I've been outside the country are cruise stops in the Caribbean. Nice beaches, slum living conditions for the locals. The only island I'd return to is St. Thomas. Or Puerto Rico.

Nothing in central or south America interests me.

Nothing in Asia interests me.

In Europe, maybe England, Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, nothing else would interest me. Other countries might, but considering the refugee problem, I will avoid them.

I would, however, consider Israel

I would consider Australia and New Zealand

I would consider Hawaii

There's plenty to see and do within the US, so I have little desire to leave. Traveling outside the US, if I ever do it, will have to wait until I'm retired.

I would love to visit Long Island. New Zealand would be amazing, if not for such a long flight.
Thanks for sharing!

Italy has the most refugees by far cos its nearest to Libya where theyre all leaving from now the Turkey route isnt so easy.Spain has lots too, as does Britain.

You also missed out Wales,lovely little place with a culture all of its own.

Atlanta hates whites? well, not in my expereince. I go there for work all the time and while it's more racially integrated than other southern cities, I don't find it anti-white at all. There is a large Jewish population that thrives there too. You guys who listed Houston and Dallas are missing out on some great musuems, great shopping, and great food!

Me, I'm not interested in going to Iceland, Antartica, Nebraska, North or South Dakota.

being from NY... I'm sure you are aware the USA had quite a refugee problem at (many) times...(since the late 1500's...)

It is estimated that as many as 4.5 million Irish arrived in America between 1820 and 1930. Between 1820 and 1860, the Irish constituted over one third of all immigrants to the United States. In the 1840s, they comprised nearly half of all immigrants to this nation.
