Hello. We are considering moving to the Corpus Christi area. We have two young kids and looking at the Calallen area. I have read that the area tends to be rascit towards white and black people. I was wondering if that was an accurate statement.

No. It's not accurate.

Although the area is something like 65% Hispanic, it's not particularly racist toward anyone. Calallen has the reputation of being somewhat redneck although I have no idea whether it's true or not.

OP what is rascit? Do you mean racist?

And regarding what you've "read", how would you or anyone know an entire town is racist unless you've interacted with everyone individually?

That’s right because Hispanics are never racist to anyone. Only the white rednecks are the racists.

Can you show me where I said that Hispanics are never racist to anyone?

Do you live in Corpus Christi?

I'm white and I've lived here most of my life and have never felt racism or discrimination directed at me.

Why don't you share your experiences with the OP rather than picking a fight or spouting ignorance?

As long as you are not living in some low cost apartments, you will be fine.

But, assuming you are not, you should be ok, although you may on occasion run into somebody that doesn't like non-mexicans.

@detachable arm

I think Marlow was just giving his opinion of Calallen, since the OP asked about it, not trying to imply it is a racist place. I kind of thought the same thing you did but upon further looking this is what I think he meant.

No I would say not really over more racist than any other place. What we have found in the 2 plus years my family have lived here is it is not really a very friendly city. Very cliqish sorta behind the times and just slow to adapt. Nobody is over mean or anything just not as welcoming as other places I have lived. We will probably be out of here soon so the family just bears with it. But racist no not more so than anywhere else.

I'm African American and I visited CC during the summer, because I'm planning on moving there, also. We are originally from the Fort Lauderdale/Miami, Florida areas. All the strangers I ran into were quite friendly. And, the city was laid back, which I really like and my kids, too. I have 2 high functioning children on the autism spectrum.

Right now, we are in East Texas, 1. I hate living inland. 2. This area is boring and it sucks. 3. The resources for autistic children and their parents suck.

I'm glad you had a good experience. In case you haven't already run across it, there is a group here called the Autism Spectrum Resource Center that offers support and community for families with kids on the spectrum. I think they have a website and a Facebook page. They hold judgment-free social events for children and young adults, and offer ideas and support for things like looking for health care professionals and advocating for your kids at school.

Welcome and best of luck to you!
