There's a lot of truth in what you say, Elias Graves. Most people will treat you well if you're nice to them.

Exactly, they are not Christian. They are rather insecure people that masquerade in the label of a Christian, thinking that claiming the title will make others believe these people know it all.

I think you'll be just fine in Oklahoma. Of course, the smaller, more rural towns are going to have a higher chance of having race-intolerant a**holes, but that's almost to be expected anywhere.

If anything, you should have absolutely no problems at all in Norman, Stillwater, Tulsa, or Oklahoma City. The first two are university towns, Tulsa is an artsy, educated city, and Oklahoma City is just a huge metro area so you're bound to be fine there.

Default Broken Arrow is wonderful!

Broken Arrow(BA) is wonderful with excellent schools, minimal crime. ORU is a 20 min drive. Rhema is here along with a lot of other ministry headquarters. In public schools our kids even get to sing real Christmas songs at Christmas! It has a real mix of folks. Tulsa and BA share borders. It's a mix of city, country and suburbia. We love it here,

Default Ok

I'm from Norman and to be honest, when your with your family and friends they will make comments about African Americans but if your in public I don't see why you should have a problem, especially in a big city. Oklahoma does have a lot of African Americans.

I've never been to Oklahoma but when I was doing a search recently I found out that there is a town there called "Hennessey", OK. Well my last name is Hennessey, and I kept it, I couldn't imagine changing it for any reason (marriage or otherwise), My two sons names are also Hennessey and they Love it and wouldn't have it any other way! I'd like to hear more about it, if anyone is interested in telling me more that is. I'm 50 yrs old and was looking for a place to move and "Hennessey" sounds lovely! Please tell me more! Thank you. Maureen P. Hennessey

Hennessey was named after a guy named Pat Hennessey who was a local guy that had been in the area. He was murdered although they don't know if it was bandits or indians that killed him. The community was named Hennessey after he died.

Hennessey is interesting in that it was located on the north starting line for the Oklahoma land run of 1889 and was on the south starting line for the Cherokee Strip land run some four years later.

Hennessey is known for having a large Czech population in town.

It is basically a small non descript wheat/oil/cattle and pig area that is to some degree a satellite community to Enid, OK some 25 miles north.

There are a lot of wealthy farmers in the area who made money on the wheat and oil in the area. They are on the verge of another large oil boom that is developing right now.

The Hennessey Eagles football team won their class state championship in 2010 and 2011.

It is a nice little town as far as Oklahoma goes if a bit homely looking.

There is a Pat Hennessey park on the west side of town.
