I have two questions:

1.) I am thinking about taking a Spring/Summer vacation in Idaho this year. What is there to do in Idaho?

2.) I am black and I was wondering if there was any racial problems in Idaho? Are they respectfully to other races?

1. To answer this best, it would help to know where in ID you will be. It's a big state, with lots to do if you like the outdoors.

2. I don't think you'll find Idaho any worse in this regard than most states. In the rural areas people may stare a moment longer than you'd expect-simply because many minorities are rare in the area. I have lived in the area for 20 years and have never witnessed overt racism.

I can't speak for N. Idaho, but S.E. Idaho has a ton of summer activities all along it's corridor from Utah to the Montana border. Jackson Hole, just over the border from Idaho Falls, also has a bunch of activities, and is very close to Yellowstone Park. A 2-day tour through the park can put you outside the park at West Yellowstone, which is only about 20 miles from the Idaho border, so loop trips are easy to do.

S. Idaho has a small African-American minority living mostly in Pocatello and Idaho Falls, but are scattered in other towns as well. I live in I.F., and we have almost no racism at all. You would be very welcomed here.
Keim is right- you wouldn't encounter racism here, but in the really small communities, you might be a curiosity. This is fading though, as the world has become a much smaller place every passing year.

Racism: Idaho. Non-issue.
