Again some of you are quick to show your ignorance and hate. Is the percentage high? no, but again folks from the city's seem to show their hatred, people out here just want to live and let live. If there are any prejudices up here it is based on ignorance, not on hate like in the citys.
Not to mention if your a black man, one of the only states where you stand a good chance to make the same amount as white men is montana, where they make 89% if not higher, the average wage of whites. Only 5 states can claim that, two of which are in the inland north west.
Your perceptions are ignorant.
s**t The first fur trading post in Montana was started by a black person.
Great post! It's pathetic in here sometimes.
I really shouldnt even acknowledge comments like those, but having lived in CA for 24 years of my life, and now living in the inland north west, i know for a fact that this area of the US gets a bad rap that simply isain't true. There are a LOT of conservatives here, but they are of the Libertarian variety. (other than the extremely religous parts, which are mostly communities that stick to themselves and dont bother anyone anyways.) If you come here to be left alone you will be just fine. If you come here to push your agenda on anyone you will be sorely sad you came, regardless of race.
