I am planning on moving to WI, and My husband is African American. Does Readstown, WI have alot of racism? I know it is a mostly Caucasian town, and growing up in WI myself I have seen quite a bit of it.

Readstown is a diverse and very family friendly, though not necessarily social, community. People are judged, as Martin Luther King wanted, on "the content of their character and not on the color of their skin." There is a "hippy" neiborhood nearby. There is rumored to be a "gay comunity" near Viroqua. The rest are farmers and hobby farmers. We have some Amish farmers as well. I am a truck driver. If we do not wish to associate with someone, we leave them be, and in return we are expect to be left to ourselves. People who meet your husband would evaluate his attitude towards his neibors on an individual basis. As for me, if he is a good neibor, he is a good neibor. So he has a deep tan. So what? If he likes me and mine and can be trusted, then he is an asset to the community.

Readstown Police Officer, there is a recent story in the La Crosse Tribune about the Readstown Police Officer who is under investigation. I was the one who reported him and got the ball rolling. I walked in on him having just had sexual relations with a married woman in the bathroom of a store while he was on duty. She said it happened more than once, I turned him in and filed a complaint of bad conduct with the city and also alerted the sherriff dept. He has a lot of friends in the village government and it appeared that the village didn't care and some of them may have tried to cover this up. I have talked with other women who have also claimed to have relations with him while he was duty some say they were pressured. This guy needs to lose his badge, if you move to this town be careful of this guy.
