Rural Kansas. IDK.....why can't you achieve the American Dream where you live now? If you lived in a minority-majority area or a plurality (the majority is less than 50% but is still technically the majority....e.g. 40%, 25%, 25%, 10%) would you feel less inferior?

North Carolina is unique among the Southern states in that you have plenty of covert racism among the natives AND an ever-increasing amount of overt racism from the growing number of Northeastern and Great Lakes transplants--not such a great mix, if you ask me.

An educated member of any minority group will be able to live quite well anywhere, and especially in cities and states which are booming; it all starts with investing in yourself, which means getting a good education, in spite of the ludicrous proclamations of President Pessimism last week, which was simply more hot air from the master of that practice.

Honolulu (mostly for East Asians)
Miami (mostly for Latinos)
LA (for everyone, but especially for West Asians/North Africans and South Asians)
New York City (for everyone)
Atlanta (for Blacks mostly)
Native Americans and other Indigenous peoples would likely do well in Seattle, Portland, or Albuquerque.

Isn't it a little "off" to advise someone where to go by race/ethnicity, and steer them toward places with many others "like them"? A little off, no? Like maybe white people should be advised to go to North Dakota and Vermont? So much for diversity.

Regardless of your race, you can succeed anywhere with a decent economy as long as you:
1. Are educated in something marketable
2. Speak standard american english
3. Don't have any felonies

- Blacks have the easiest time in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area since blacks have generally been more successful in the public sector(govt) than the private sector (companies). Plus, there are an abundance of stable/successful community composed of ppl just like you so you wouldn't have to worry about not being accepted into a neighborhood due to things out of your control. Atlanta and Dallas are a good option too.

- Asians generally excel everywhere in the US so this is a non-issue for them.

- As for Latino's, I know Cubans tend to do well in Miami and there are many educated Latin communities. Don't know anything further than that.
