The one thing I can say about the south racism vs what you guys are talking about Cali.. The racist people hate equally haha.. They don't single out any type of people.. If you black latin Jew and don't be indian or from the middle east those people in the south swear up and down that you here to destroy America and spread muslin faith hahaha.. If you are black you sell drugs and should be a slave and if you are Jew they still charging you with the murder of Jesus haha and if you latin they think you got here illegally and you are having too many kids and making America broke and they are trying to call immigration on you haha. God FORBID don't be white and GAY in those bible loving towns that is worse than being black in those towns.. They will kill you and say they did Gods work and honestly deep down believe that crap. To be fair that is mostly in those one gas station towns the bigger cities you might have 1% of the people that feel like that now of days Like Altanta GA Charlotte NC or some of the bigger places NC. Even Alabama is better..

I've lived here 6 years and, having lived in LA, NY and Canada, I can answer with a resounding YES. People here are so culturally incompetent, they don't even know that what they are saying is racist.

Seattle has to be the first city that I forgot what race I was because the south NC GA SC AL will remind you every day if you forget that you are not white. haha.. It's not black jokes but more of getting called BOY haha or your kind don't belong here. I mean its 100 times better there than it use to be but only in the major cities and the cities that are half black but the ones that are not they will remind you quick.. I have never lived in San diego but I vacation there a lot and never had a problem if anything people were helpful and some of the girls of a lot of different races seem to be very extremely friendly in SD haha.. Good Times!! I know sometimes living somewhere and vacations are different.. I just hope I'm not running back screaming to my book worm star bucks drinking poetry reading hard rock people in Seattle with people yelling white power running behind me after this move to SD haha.
well, compared to the rural south, SoCal racism is almost nonexistent. but generally speaking, culture-wise, we have a ways to go before being as open-minded as Seattle

I saw on the papers about some skinheads harassing a woman because she has mixed kids. And Orange County is suppose to be the "safest and affluent" county in the state.

I know racism is everywhere, but does anyone else think OC is the most racist county in CA?
OC? No I don't think so. Maybe reverse racism. There are/were some pretty racist places in central and nor cal.

Well no. The most racist counties in CA are Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Okay, I have to speak my mind on this. I've been living in Rancho Cucamonga my entire life, and the city was always very small and rather safe, up until now, after RC began to expand and more and more shopping centers started popping up everywhere. Especially after the Victoria Gardens Mall and all these expensive town-homes, and such, came up. That was when OC residents began moving to Rancho, and that was when racism became eminently noticeable in the town. In my late teens I worked in a couple of the stores in the Victoria Gardens mall, and we even had particular nicknames for the OC-turned-Rancho residents that would come into the stores with attitudes and unnecessary senses of entitlement that would just baffle you. I mean, I remember once helping a black customer, in one of the stores that I worked. We were standing face to face, a few inches apart, while she asked me questions. Then, out of nowhere an orange-county bigot just rudely steps in, right between us, and demands that I help her instead of the black woman, whom I was helping first... I once worked at a Henry's farmers market, doing training at the store in Chino, then transferring to the store in Rancho. Damn, it was VERY different. The people in Chino were friendly, while the OC-turned-RC customers were rude, had this ghastly need to let you know that they were wealthy, and would blatantly let you know that if you were anything BUT white, that you were beneath them. Damn, they were also quick to shout out the fact that they were from Orange County, with haughty glints in their eyes. And my list goes on and one and on... I can name so many different experiences that I've had concerning the racism of orange county and its residents. The former OC residents are the ones who brought so much hatred and racism to Rancho, it's unbelievable. Rancho never used to be like that until they came with their high-horse, sense of entitlement, racist attitudes. How do I know that they're from the OC? Well, the bigots really LOVE letting you know that that's where they're from. As if claiming OC is a form of stating royal lineage, or something. And what I hate the most is when people just brush off racism thinking that since it's never happened to them, then racism must not exist. Now, I'm not saying that OC is the most racist county, but it IS right up there in the ranks, but thanks to the OC residents I suppose Cucamonga is in the ranks now, too, right?

They sound like skinheads. That's kind of what the gang members do here in LA. If they don't like something about you, whether it's your race, your shirt, your shoes, your hair, your look, they'll mess with ya. A couple of weeks ago, I was visiting somebody at USC General Hospital and experienced racism myself (I am white). As I check in and walk toward the seating area in the crowded room, I see a couple of empty seats in the back row but as luck would have it, I see three black folks (two males and one female), crowding the walkway to get to the seats. Me, I don't care; if I see an empty seat, I'm going to sit there, regardless of who's nearby. So as I am on my way to the entry way to the row, they begin the with their suspicious eyeballing, just waiting for something to happen. They don't say hi and don't move over so that I could walk by. They just give attitude. Anyway, I just kind of glanced and politely said "excuse me" then walked toward my seat. Apparently, that wasn't enough. One of the males that was standing, began making comments to the other 2 blacks about me being a prejudiced white man (I had never seen him before in my life) or something and that he was ready to "go off up on whitey up in here" or something. So I'm sitting there waiting for something to happen because he would have been in for the surprise of his life--trust me. But, I stayed calm and after a few minutes of his black supremacist tirade against the 3 or 4 white folk in the room, he left. Racism comes in all forms and happens everywhere. If a white man were to sound off on blacks like that in 2010, he'd be arrested and it would be front page news. Not to mention his career and life would probably be ruined.

Not that I doubt what you've experienced, but someone moving from OC to Rancho Cucamonga probably isn't all that wealthy. And it's usually the ones that end up having to move out that have attitudes like that. I've seen quite a bit of racism here when I moved here from L.A. as a kid in the early 90's, but I've always noticed that the biggest offenders end up leaving, and I can only guess where they ended up.

Orange County very déclassé.

Not exactly worldly and sophisticated. More like trailer park trash with high credit limits.
