Question by Whatever: Is North Carolina or Texas a good place to live for Hispanic people?
I am now finishing my bachelors degree here in Miami, FL but I want to leave the state with my wife (she is Hispanic also) to go to Raleigh, North Carolina or Dallas/ Austin, Texas. I have heard many stories of how up north there is a lot of hate/racism towards Hispanic people. Does anyone know if these are good/safe places for Hispanic couple like me and my wife?

I’m Hispanic and have lived in NJ all my life and everyone’s here..however the cost of living is much higher…..But I’m in the process of moving to Spring, TX…it’s 25 miles north of Houston and it’s very nice…and diverse….A few years ago I also had a house built in Mooresville, NC(about 20 miles north of Charlotte)’s nice there too (but I changed my mind and didn’t close on the house) but Texas is nicer….and the cost of living is cheaper there than NC…curious as to why you’d want to leave Miami though..I thought it was nice there?

    Raleigh and Austin are similar, diverse medium sized cities with a lot of colleges in the area, but I personally prefer Raleigh. It’s a very nice city and most people are friendly there. There are more Hispanic people in Austin and in most areas of Texas compared to NC so if you would rather live in an area with more Hispanic people, then I would suggest Austin but I think you would enjoy Raleigh as well and there is also a large Hispanic population in Raleigh, but I honestly don’t think it should be an issue. I’ve never encountered any racism or issues of intolerance in Raleigh, most people in the triangle area seem accepting of all types of people as there is a lot of diversity as a result of all the local colleges (NC state, UNC and Duke) and recent immigrants. Compared to other southern cities, Raleigh is very liberal. I’m sure there are some racist people in Raleigh, but unfortunately there are racist people in every city, in every country and again, I’ve never seen or heard of any major issues of intolerance in the Raleigh area.

    Raleigh is a suburban city with a lot of nice neighborhoods, a nice downtown, and if you like shopping, there’s a lot of nice malls. It’s a great place for families. Almost all neighborhoods are safe, crime is relatively low in Raleigh for a city of it’s size. If you do decide to move there, avoid the neighborhoods immediately to the south of downtown, it’s not an extremely dangerous area, but there’s better areas to live in Raleigh. North Raleigh, Cary and the new condos downtown are the best areas to live. The coast is about 2 hours from Raleigh and the mountains are 2 hours west. Washington DC is only a few hours to the north. Forbes Magazine has ranked Raleigh as the best city in America for business and careers for the second year in a row. There are lot’s of jobs available in the Research Triangle Park, which is considered the Silicon Valley of the east. Homes are affordable and the cost of living is good considering the population of the triangle area.

    Austin has better nightlife than Raleigh and a good music scene and some nice areas to live, but I still prefer Raleigh because of it’s proximity to the ocean, mountains, etc and the friendly people.

    Hopefully this helps. Good luck with your decision.
