Thread: Any Racism?

    Question Any Racism?

    Hello.
    By no way shape or form do I mean to offend anyone at all, however I am a white woman married to a black man with two children. We currently live in a city where mixed race marriages are very accepted and we are thinking of moving to another state. We have researched Nashville and are considering it, but would never want to put our children in a place where they are not welcomed. How would you say that the race relations in Nashville are, and is Nashville welcoming to people of biracial background?

    I'm living downtown so it may be a different "scene" but I have seen many bi racial couples with kids in restaurants, parks and just walking around. I have only been here a few weeks but have never seen a single incident of racism.

    I do my grocery shopping in a predominently black neighborhood and would not think twice about it. I'm a whitey and pretty friendly to everyone. I felt accepted right away. People here are just gracious and accepting. I don't see a lot of education for kids here downtown so you may want to consider the outside suburbs. Come down for a visit and see what you think. If anyone stares it's probably because your kids are so cute!

    You can run into some idiots no motter where you go, but the stereotype of of the racist south is greatly exagerated. This isn't the 1960's. There are some small towns off the beaten path where some folks might give you dity looks - but youfind that up north as well.

    My family and I are considering a move to Nashville. We're an interracial couple with 3 kids, and my"boyfriend" and I have never been to Tennessee. We like what we've seen so far, but internet research is all we've had time to look at. Tell me anything about safe neighborhoods, schools, hospitals, and the acceptance of interracial children. How's the housing market? shopping? entertainment? Unfortunately, I have stereo types(sorry about that) and I want to clear them up. I have an uncle who lives in the south and quite frankly, he's racists. i know that all of Nashville doesn't have racial issues, but where I live now, I know where the issues are and we don't frequent them. We're going to be visiting in the next month. Could someone tell us anything we should check out while there, to assist in our decision making. Thank you

    just visit the nashville craigslist rants and raves for your answer
    now every city has its pockets of ignorance

    but a lot of folks down here think the south won the civil war or at least wish they did and have no problem displaying their confederate flags

    but unlike the north its more open which i appreciate id rather know a person or business is racist so i dont have to spend my money there unlike up north where its more hidden (they'll wait to you leave before calling you ni**er)

    and remember the kkk was founded here

    I don't think it is a problem here. I live in Spring Hill, but I've lived in Nashville as well, and I think it is socially acceptable. Your kids will be fine and enjoy Nashville.

    Me and my wife are a mixed cuple with mixed kids and was trying to figure out the same thing ten months ago. We made the move to the nashville area and found out that it is very acceptable. As a matter of fact they accept it more than up north ( we are from Michgan). So the answer to your questions is YESSS it's very welcoming.

    Nothin to be scared of... although, based on what is said about places like this, it makes sense to be concerned. It's cool you asked though. There is litterally the best people i have ever met down here. I'm from Texas, and there was the occasional racist there. Here I havent met one. With that said... there's gonna be biggots everywhere, and screw them, if there are some here, they are vastly out numbered.

    Default racism in nashville area

    Hi my family and I are a bi-racial family and we haven't had any problems here we live just outside of nashville, but are still in the same county as. Our kids have no problems and the schools are very diverse. We have lived in Fl and Ga where we did face much racism from both sides. But here we have had none, in about 5 yrs. I agree with who wrote before re: the conf. flags, you do see them once in a while, but haven't had any issues or even nasty looks. However, there are still a share of the good ol boy attitude such as in fire depts, etc. But nowhere is perfect, when it comes to this matter, unfortunately! Even the older ones are nice and friendly! Hope this helps, take care.

    With my history in the different areas and places I have worked. Racism is everywhere and you will never completely erase it, so are just brought up that way and only know what they were taught. Which racism is on both sides of the fence of course. As far as the confederate flag, I myself have several friends who fly it proudly but not as a racist sign its part of there families history and there proud of there family background, Granted a lot of people in the south have the whole north vs south thing and the south will rise again thing going I've lived around it most of my life. Coming from South Mississippi where the biggest flag controversy happened over our state flag.

    My .02 your run into stupid people everywhere just don't let it get to you and enjoy the great life you have built for you and your love ones.
