I am Chinese American and lived in Charlotte for 5 years now. I can't wait to leave, but stuck here due to my husband's job. I totally agree with you. I lived in Manhattan for most of my life, in the city of London and in Seattle. I've never been treated any different from other nationalities, including all my white friends. For the first time in my life at the age of 41, I really feel like an outsider. Don't get me wrong. I have plenty of friends and I definitely get positive attentions, but I get the most ignorant questions everyday here. And for the first time, some kid in a car called me "Ching Ching" while I was jogging. I never once encountered this in any other cities that I lived at. I definitely feel like an outsider here and not an American just like every else. I would absolutely not recommend Charlotte or any place in NC to others considering moving down here. Stay away while you can! Another side note on how ignorant folks are over here...They voted against Amendment one.....yet this state allow cousins to marry. There's definitely no love here for anyone that are not white and straight.
