Being a black man I'm looking for some places to hang out here in town and can't find many. I'm getting used to the stares I thinks some of the women like me but the men look likes they wanna kill me. Will it be possible for me to get a job and raise a family here?
wish you knew, dont ya??

Lol..... It is very possible. Most people here are all talk. There are plenty of black Families that live here. It's just like any other town you just have to find your place. It's only as hard as you want to make it to be. Good luck and stay positive.

There are several prejudice people in this town. But there are ones who are not. If you happen to go out ex: American Legion, or VFW just watch your back for the drunk rednecks. And I'm sure the bartender won't allow any bs. I agree with what the other person said though. Don't let stuff bother you, and good luck with everything.

I have found this to be a very prejudice town!! And a town where you have to be or know someone to make it long. Like at sports in town, the same peoples kids are always the ones that get the playing time. There are too many clicks in this town. You folks that think you "are somebody" need to realize that we all make up this town not just you and your clicks!!!

I have a hispanic boyfriend. And I'm a white woman. We have so many stares. We went to the legion and had people tell him to go back to Mexico and tell him to quit stealing the white women. We can't even to out to eat here bc ppl act like we're such a
Disgrace because the difference in our skin colors. We have to go

I've actually seen more racist people living up north than here.
There are so many trashy good for nothing white folks here I have no idea why we would think we're better than another race simply because of race. There are good and bad in all cultures.
My only complaint with blacks is by majority they vote race and call whites racist waaaay too much. This isn't the 1800's and things are better and that's what we need to focus on, it will never be perfect

To Yea, I'm sorry Yall have to go through that. It's not right.
To Interested, I agree with you 100%! There are several white folk here who are trash and act so superior, they really need to get a grip on reality.And you're right, not every white person is racist.

Odell, there aren't any places to hang out...for blacks or whites. LOL
Since moving here last summer I've found myself to have become quite the homebody. All I really do is fish on the river or swim in lake, but the latter is just in the summer.

She is right. It is pretty but pretty boring too nothing for our children or adults for that matter to do around here.
