My family is considering a move to Loveland. I used to live there, but I was single and it was almost 15 years ago. Since then I married an African-American (I'm caucasian) and we've adopted two small boys -- an African-American son and a Puerto Rican son. What's it going to be like for my wife to work and my boys to go to school in the Loveland/Ft Collins area? I didn't even think about it until I noted that only 1% of the population is African-American in the Front Range area.

Consensus of many postings over the years in the COLO forums is that COLO is very cool in regards to racial matters.

This is good news, thanks to both of you. My wife isn't too worried about it and honestly, I suspect it will be fine -- I remember Colorado as having great people. But there have been a few places in the US where we did feel a little odd. My wife has always made her way, my biggest concern is for my African-American son. He's got a few special needs, as well. And kids can be cruel.

Thanks again for your responses.

If you don't make it an issue, nobody else will. Most people here don't care about skin color. We tend to judge a person by the content of their character, not the color of their skin, as MLKjr suggested.

No problem I'm sure, my wife is Asian American and I'm as white as they come, my kids look Greek of all things as a result. Never had a single issue here in Loveland and we have been here 10 years. Welcome back!
