Review of Montana, Montana


Friendiness
Star Rating - 7/25/2015
I am black, my husband is white; all I've ever wanted to do is visit the lakes and mountains of Montana. I am wondering how likely it is to be accepted there in terms of jobs (going for PA), friends, schools, etc. I know Montana has a very low population of black people, so it's not too farfetched to estimate that most won't know what to think of me. Thanks in advance, for anyone who can answer.

I am just so sorry that you have to even think about how you would be received. I understand what you were saying and I wish racism didn't exist in our country. But, I have to say that you need to just DO IT and see what you get. Don't keep yourself from enjoying life because you might be treated badly. Just don't respond to people if you meet up with trouble. Smile and be friendly and more than likely, people will respond in kind.

I HAVE LIVED IN MONTANA ALL MY LIFE AND SEEN SEVERAL BLACK PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS. NO ONE WILL BOTHER YOU. IN FACT MANY WILL WANT TO TALK WITH YOU BEING SO LITTLE CONTACT WITH BLACK FOLKS.

I'm thinking you're too worried about the race card to really enjoy the lakes & mountains. People aren't prejudice by location. Prejudice & racism is on an individual basis.
