You could move to Antarctica but I hear the Adelie Penguins are at war with the Chinstrap Penguins who are at war with Emperor Penguins because they are so colorful. However the Emperor Penguins detest the Gentoo, Macaroni, and Rockhopper Penguins they think they can fly .....Racism amongst penguins is an ongoing cycle. Be careful.

Racism and classism exist because human differences exist. There's no escaping it anywhere.

In my experience, the U.S. is probably one of the least racist countries in the world. You'll find much more in-your-face racism in many other countries.

Skin color only goes a fraction of an inch deep. Anyone that hates another person because of the color of their skin is an idiot. However there are legitimate reasons to dislike another person LOL.

If you travel to less developed rural areas in foreign countries, the people usually treat you well regardless out of cultural hospitality.

It is everywhere, and if it is not skin color, then it will be something else, like where you are from. More than a few people look for any reason to "discriminate" based on something, they may have to search for it, but they will find it.

Where are you at now? That could give some perspective for better advice.

????

People in Africa look vastly different from each other, let alone stating they look like you.

Africa has many conflicts based on race, ethnicity, origin, affiliations, etc. You think the place is peaceful or something?

you should stay in america because it only gets worst when you leave.. else where (like asia,parts of europe,s.amerca-but may not as bad) people will physically come up to tell you how much they hate your dark skin, or worst --they'll assault you for it..however, london or nyc maybe a good spot, they are very progressive not to say you won't experience it, but maybe less..
