Would you mind pointing specifically which cities, counties, and towns of the "South" are "very racist" and "very xenophobic"? And no, simply listing out Kentucky, Carolinas, Mississippi will not do.

I went to school in one of the southern states (North Carolina) that has a reputation for being white and homogeneous. However, I encountered nothing but hospitality from most locals. Many local churches in the Raleigh-Durham area even have programs that help with integration of immigrant youth from Africa and Asia, and they host weekly language and cultural immersion programs (I was a volunteer in one of these programs). Yes, most locals are white. Yes, many have never traveled abroad. But many locals literally opened their arms when new immigrants started arriving from Africa and South America. It's the kind of tolerance and understanding that you wouldn't even see in the most cosmopolitan parts of western Europe.

Don't think you know what you are talking about, the south is one of the least white regions in the country and has some of Americas most diverse cities... maybe you are confusing the south with the great plains?
