My family which consists of 2 children, my husband and I are looking to buy our first home in Elizabethtown, PA. For any people living around the area, or have lived in the past, or know of the area, could you please share your experiences with diversity, acceptance, welcoming of people of color. From my research, there was FBI involvement with hate crimes in the University in 2014-2015. I am very concerned and do not want to put my family in harms way.

Thanks for your input! I appreciate all your help

I think it will be difficult to answer this unless a person is a minority (I am not). I can only speak in general terms.
There is no 'rampant' racism here. I'm sure there are idiots in my community as there are everywhere who have a problem with someone who looks different than they are but I personally don't know any.

Black people will stand out here simply because there are so few. Hispanics are much greater in number. My sense is that more people dislike Hispanics than blacks simply because of the language difference.

Elizabethtown is not the kind of place anyone will be burning a cross in your yard but it would be foolish to say everyone is liberal, friendly and open-minded. Such a utopia does not exist.
