My daughter is thinking of relocating. She is white with 3 children, 2 are bi-racial. I am concerned it may not be a healthy place for them to grow up in. She insists theres racism everywhere, and it will be okay. Any honest information would be appreciated.

I would avoid it. Pretty racist area. West Manchester would be a better bet.

Why East Berlin? It's beautiful around there, but very rural. Gettysburg and York are more diverse.

I've always believed that people should live where they want to live, regardless of racial or cultural/religious differences. I believed that until we moved to a neighborhood where we were in the extreme minority, and could not assimilate. It wasn't all intentional, either. Culturally, most activities and social engagements revolved around the group that we didn't belong to. It was a lonely existence after a while, and we moved after a few years.

I hear you on that. But, the majority around me are idiots.

I have a friend who lives in East Berlin that I visit. Being one of the majority there, I know first hand how insular that town is. I have a diverse group of friends so I can compare. Her best bet would be York which is diverse.
