The vast majority of people really don't care who you date. You can never rule out the possibility of some idiot having something to say no matter where you live.

People need to quit looking for reasons to be offended and just go about your business.

If someone isn't nice to you, it's not because you're black, white, green, whatever. It's probably because that person is just a Dbag.

Breathe in, breathe out, move on.

True in many cases, but to generalize and lump all experiences together shows ignorance.

I live in Baltimore where no one even notices, because inter-racial dating/marriages are so common. I would hate to have a mixed child down there, they wouldn't be accepted by anyone.
I have lived in Charleston for 2 years and I have to tell you, it has been the worse experience of my life. When we started considering transferring here and looking for feedback about the Charleston area, every single person who we knew visited the area (as tourists) had pretty good things to say about "the touristic areas". Once we moved the story turned into a shocking reality. I am Hispanic and my husband is Black and I agree with the previous statement that most opposition comes from African American as well as white women. There is A LOT of jealousy and ignorance in this place and it comes from both whites and blacks. If you are a professional who is also a minority GET ready, you are not going to have it easy. I frequently shop at Whole Foods in Mt. Pleasant and I remember one time when this white older lady started following me with her eyes as I passed by her shopping cart, which happened to have her purse in it...and I always dress very professional and classy! Even going to the supermarket is drama even if you are always well dressed and look sharp! Everything about this place is backward, the culture, the mentality and how the government does things, EVERYTHING! There is NOT diversity in the public sector either, you will find that all managers in stores are white. Is like going back in time to the 1970-1980. I call it the "quiet racism".

The only "positive" I have experienced about the area is that there is a fair amount of traffic if you compare it with other bigger cities, houses are "cheap" (only in the rural areas), it is quiet here and there is a lot of outdoor activities you can do like fishing, hunting, etc. (you know the country stuff) There are a couple festivals that happen every year and some worth visiting county parks.

Night life....the best night life here is called hanging out in bars, mostly downtown Charleston. Honestly, I went there a couple times and I could not see a single Black or Hispanic person among the crowd. Even if you try to ignore the fact that you are the "weird thing" among the crowd, people make an effort to remind you. You get a lot of looks....I always wondered if in their minds they were asking...what are you doing here? Once you do the bars, the beaches (which are not appealing if you have seen prettier), shopping, go to the movies and walk downtown you have done mostly all there is to do.

Most outsiders I met who stated that love Charleston are white. Probably the people answering questions here are also white. They really don't understand what I am talking about since they are not in my skin. So...please do not get mislead by this forum. There is a group of people here that dedicate their time to counterfeit every single negative comment other people post about the Charleston area. Just read after my comment and you will see what I am talking about!
