I'm a black woman from the South with 10 years of teaching experience. I am interested in moving to a different state. I just want to experience something different. I know this may sound really stupid but I wonder if there are any black people there??? I knew a black family who lived there about 14 years ago (military family) and they stated there was a lot racism. Is that true? I want a straight up answer. I don't want to have to deal with racism so if anyone knows please just tell me straight out. I know that racism still exist and I know it tends to be more prevalent in certain areas. If I am totally wrong please tell me. Thanks for your help.
