Even though least racist, is not the same as not racist....
I would say that could very well be true.
Spokane, back in the late 80's, elected a black mayor, when the city was not even 2% black at the time.
7 of the 10 top spots for interracial marriages are on the West Coast (or the West anyway).
The most intergrated cities, are towns out West, like Oakland and Tacoma,
plus, there's not a sad history or checkered past of race relations on the West Coast, like there has been in the South or even the Rust Belt and NYC.
I've lived out here for about 13 years (grew up back east though).....you have the weather of the South, without the racism and you have the open minds that you find in the Northeast (even though the NE is not as open minded), but without the cold and snow.....

would prefer to stay out here, but when all the extended family is back east, makes it hard at times.

Disagree. I think it's somewhere in the East along the Eastern Seaboard -- perhaps the Southeast to the Mid-Atlantic area.

Dang there's no options for "I don't know" or "This is a dumb question" or "What do you mean?" I imagine the West Coast varies with some of it being relatively free of racism and other parts being quite racist.

Disagree.
From the mexicans and blacks killing each other just for being a different race.
To the white skinheads beating up black men for being black.
To the black nationalists preaching that the white man is the devil and needs to be killed.

California might actually be the most racist part of the nation.
I live in the south and in my city there are no skinheads or KKK. The mexicans and blacks hang out together, as do the whites. Pretty much everyone gets along. You'll see white ppl hanging out in the projects and you'll see black ppl hanging out in golf course communities, along with inter-racial couples and no one seems to really care.
