Well, if your going rural and forested there won't be many people around so by virtue of that there won't be many "racists".
Maybe it's my habit of avoiding people altogether that leaves me in the dark but I don't get where all these "racists" are.
I'd suggest here but the Winters are harsh and I'd rather not have anymore people move into this state.

If you find that place, let me know. I'll pack my bags. I'm tired of the rat race. I've thought about moving to some island without anything at all. Ahhhh, some day.

Not necessarily. Sometimes misery is forced upon you.

I live in Vermont, and I love it. Granted, our winters last up to five months, but it's incredibly pristine and wholesome here. The people are a bit reserved, but honest, salt-of-the-earth folk who will always help you out when you're in trouble. The summers are beautiful and mellow -- there are lots of lakes and rivers you can swim in; and we have forests, green hills, fields, and waterfalls in abundance. And then there are our Indian summers, of course, when the leaves turn all shades of gold, orange, and brown, mixed in with the bright red of the maple trees. It's just absolutely breathtaking, IMO. Even though I've been living here for seven years now, I never get sick of it. I've been living other places before, e.g., Germany, Arizona (GREAT starry skies and landscapes!), Oregon, Washington, New Jersey, I really prefer this scenery. Vermont is also one of the most liberal states -- if you have kids, for example, you can opt out of vaccinations via "moral concerns." Our capital has about 4,000 residents, our largest city has approx. 38,000.
I like the slow pace of the native Vermonters; it's like they have their own clocks and calendars... nothing is being rushed. They're very earthy people, which I missed when I was living in beautiful but flaky Sedona, AZ. It takes a while to make friends here, since people don't open up immediately, but the ones you do get, you keep for the long haul, it seems. I like that better than the superficial friendliness of say, Sedonians, who accept you as their brother at first sight, but if you're in need, no one's there to help you.
Just my personal opinion.NFL Shop
