I am looking to know more about Winder. I am looking to relocate. My boyfriend is there already and wanting my son and I to move but I must admit I am worried as I am an African American and no one has posted that they were African American only Hispanic and German. Are there a lot of well to do African Americans in Winder? I will be coming from a very diverse community in Ann Arbor, Michigan where that is not the norm. What are the odds my son would have issues in a southern/country place like Winder? Any thoughts?

Does this include African American children around the age of 11 years old?

I think nearby Gwinnett County is much more diverse than Winder, Barrow County, which is largely white and semi-rural to rural. I would look in Buford or Lawrenceville, if you want to live in a nearby area that is more racially diverse and also more developed and busy (better shopping). Public schools are good in Gwinnett, but you have to research the areas to make sure.

Winder is kinda average to me, but it feels rural and I don't really count it as part of metro Atlanta. AAs do live in the area, but not that many. I would look a bit closer towards Atlanta for racial diversity in that particular area of GA (northeast of Atlanta).

I think you're going to be in a major culture shock since you are from NY. You should think about moving closer to the metro ATL area IMO.
