    This is accurate, but there are different classes of black people. Of blacks and whites in the South, some are normal, but some don't realize how degenerate and stupid they are, so you have to walk on eggshells around them.

    IDK if I could live in LA or SF having heard some Black experiences and I do think diversity means different things for different people.

    Where in the South do you live? You'd probably like somewhere like Atlanta or DC more. Virginia as a whole feels more up my alley in terms of a mix of Southern and Northern. Also there is a large Philipino population in VB.
    I actually live in ATL lol. The city is fine, but there's lots of old money kids that grew up in the suburbs, like Buckhead, Dunwoody, Brookhaven, etc. or up north from wealthier suburbs that bring their old world mentality with them and are insufferable. It could also be that I work at a smaller consulting firm and there's less diversity overall compared to a Big 4 firm or MBB. Don't get me wrong, I've still made some friends here, but I've noticed it's a lot harder than other cities. Another thing is people from the south tend to stay here, so it's harder to break into friend groups than other, more transient cities.

    DC is baller, but I'm not sure I'd call it the South culturally. I'd say it's way more similar to the NE than the Southeast. I wouldn't mind living there at all if I can afford it.

    Your first sentence claim tends to contradict your second. If you're saying that it is justified to claim: "the south is more racist than the north" the very comparison you are making requires you to use a quantifiable basis. "More than".

    On your first sentence though, I do agree that it is a bit silly to quantify. I take the OP's meaning to be 'there is racism all over the place - why do people think that the South is somehow the most problematic?' and I'd agree. So for me, that people would like to consider 'loading' this onto the south is laughable.

    Everybody here dresses exactly the same (brb, pastel polo and shorts or pastel OCBD and khakis), has the same exact hobbies (brb, golf and SEC football), and the people at the top are still WASPy white guys. At my firm, for example, the partners in my office are literally all white boomers that are descendants of old plantation owners or have family wealth whereas the partners in Chicago, NYC, LA, SF, etc. are still generally white, but I also see plenty of Asians/Indians and other minorities up there too. On top of that, people have more diverse interests besides stereotypical rich white dude hobbies.

    IDK man. The south is great for economics/COL, but I want to GTFO of here ASAP.

    How is it racist that a bunch of white guys are wealthy and like sec football and golf? I live in an area of the country with a LOT of asian/indians that have immigrated here(my old neighborhood is legit 70% indian). Most are wealthy as they are buying the 1 million dollar homes here. Guess what, they all dress the same, eat indian food, and play cricket in the local park,. All of the tech firms here are filled to the brim with indians. Many white and black people have left because its become hard to fit in here.

    Is this not then racist as described above?

    this is more of a failing culture in large urban centers than an issue of black and white people getting along.
    Dangerous neighborhoods breed violence, breed violent cops, breed all kinds of trouble.

    The Midwest is actually filled with it tbh

    Detroit? Not as much as before. You mostly see it from northern people, or Ohio people that come visit.

    Racism will always exist though. I’d prefer it to stick to name calling instead of calling cops, fighting, or anything in general that can impact a persons life.

    It is potentially racist, yes. I call out brown dudes all the time for being insular/closed-minded towards people who don't fit their mold. There's nothing wrong with those things by themselves. The problem comes when people only associate with people who have their exact same personalities and struggle to accommodate other peoples' ideas and/or generalize other people because they don't fit their mold (i.e. the white guy thinking people who don't play golf/lax are working class stiffs or the Indian dude obsessed with cricket/Bollywood thinking white people are low IQ opioid addicts).

    The South has this mentality in spades, which is why I called it out. The objects I called out weren't as important as the mentality it breeds, which was my greater point. There's much more diversity in ideas, interests, etc. in the North, which consequently makes it a more pleasant, cosmopolitan, and (IMO) less racist place to live.

    I live in a county in SC that is about 50/50 black/white. Sure there are some racists, but I've never witnessed open and hostile racism here in SC anywhere near what I've heard in Boston, NYC, Philly, etc...

    Within 5 minutes of the first bar I stepped foot into in my first visit ever to Boston, many years ago, a guy says "Ahh so you are from South Carolina! You guys hate N-words too down there eh?!"

    Like I said I wouldn't go back to South Carolina again if I could help it lol and I have seen a lot of Confederate Flags in the Southeast. I saw them here once in TX.
    FWIW when I think of southern racism/racial tension, Texas doesn't come to mind. I'm usually thinking of states like Alabama, Mississippi, SC, etc.

    I agree it's everywhere and diversity doesn't necessarily take care of the problem. However, I do think diversity exposes you to enough of a certain race to understand that not all are the same ie blacks who think all racists are white or whites who think all blacks are rapper thugs. And in the southern cities I've been in they are still segregated by race as opposed to being separated by socioeconomic status in diversified cities.
    Do not think that what is hard for you to master is humanly impossible; and if it is humanly possible, consider it to be within your reach.

    Oh yeah! Atlanta certainly has those sections. I don't fit in in Buckhead with the SEC guys there with their GFs who like old money. Brookhaven is aite.

    You'd probably fare better in East Atlanta or Midtown. Atlanta is pretty LGBT friendly which is rare for the South so I'd assume it would be better for most POC in general. Thanks for your input.

    The South does not just have that mentality in spades, the whole world does. Asia is very closed knit and hard for a white person to assimilate. A black person would probably feel left out moving to Idaho or Utah since there are so few people with similar backgrounds.

    Sounds like you are just calling out places that arent diverse coastal cities. It's not a south thing or a north thing. Try moving to New Hampshire or Vermont as an Indian and see how well you fit in there with the stuffy white folks that have vacation homes in maine and drive subarus everywhere.


    It's not inherently bad for a place to be less diverse. People congregate with similar minded/cultural people.

    Sounds like you are disappointed you haven't broke in with the rich white crowd there. (for the record, im of a certain religion that isnt welcomed in the south either so i have no self interest in defending the south)

    Has the large black community there welcomed you with open arms to their social circles? Im gonna bet you have very little interest(because you likely just associate with white/asians).

    This just proves that racial tension permeates throughout the US and not one region. Maybe people will calm their pompous attitudes down now.
    Bro according to Biden you ain't black so you can no longer speak on racism and black issues anymore.

    Also I love the south

    Racism talks are always interesting to me but I never know how to contribute to the conversation. I just turned 42 and have a career that has me traveling all over the country, and I can accurately say that my exposure to any type of racism has been minimal at best. Not to say I've never seen it anywhere, but at my age I've seen examples of almost everything by now so you start to bucket things as "common" or 'uncommon." In my experiences, racism is incredibly uncommon, so I'm not able to conceive where or how the daily, systemic, racism is taking place. Maybe it's due the to the path I've carved...I don't know.

    Where did you read that all white people are racist, or that racism towards white people is ok? I feel like you didn't actually read any of the comments in the thread.

    I will say that people that feel that way down south are more open about it. People up north at least from my experience, if they feel that way, don't outwardly say it to you.. but will say it behind your back or within confidence of others. People in the south will just tell it to your face

    Everybody here dresses exactly the same (brb, pastel polo and shorts or pastel OCBD and khakis), has the same exact hobbies (brb, golf and SEC football), and the people at the top are still WASPy white guys. At my firm, for example, the partners in my office are literally all white boomers that are descendants of old plantation owners or have family wealth whereas the partners in Chicago, NYC, LA, SF, etc. are still generally white, but I also see plenty of Asians/Indians and other minorities up there too. On top of that, people have more diverse interests besides stereotypical rich white dude hobbies.

    IDK man. The south is great for economics/COL, but I want to GTFO of here ASAP.

    I still see white guys here in Austin have sort of similar hobbies and interests but they are mostly from the Midwest & West Coast.

    IDK if I could live in LA or SF having heard some Black experiences and I do think diversity means different things for different people.

    Where in the South do you live? You'd probably like somewhere like Atlanta or DC more. Virginia as a whole feels more up my alley in terms of a mix of Southern and Northern. Also there is a large Philipino population in VB.

    How was my question racist? My presumption is that racism is likely to be higher in areas where people have less interaction/no with others of another race, and so they're more likely to make incorrect assumptions about what these people are like.

    I would also presume there's more likely to black racism towards white/Latino people in areas like Baltimore or Detroit where black people don't interact with other races much vs somewhere like Miami or Houston where you have everyone interacting with each other.

    It's amazing watching people get so caught up in their communities without taking into consideration how big the planet is and what other places are like. How can people be so ignorant? Have you ever been overseas or read a history book? Do you know any people from other races or even outside your community?

    Racism exists everywhere, and when people speak about racism as if they are oppressed it really makes me cringe lmao. You fukking snowflakes have no idea what other people experience because you are too busy dwelling in oceans of tears and ignorant self pity. It's astounding.

    (I'm referring to anyone that thinks they are special because they experience some racism).
    "Systemic racism" is a term used by liars and cowards to hide the failures of left-wing policies....

    The south is more racist.
    I remember that after Obama was elected they did research to show where the n word and other racial slurs directed at the President came from on social media, and the South had the greatest concentration of racists in the US.
