Ask ARP: How tolerant is the south of multiracial families?

Dear Anti-Racist Parent,

I appreciate the content on your blog. I have read some very interesting and touching things here.

My sister is considering moving to the south. She is a single mother of two mixed-race boys – 1/2 African American – 1/2 Caucasian.

I am starting to worry that they boys may be met with more resistance and racism there. We currently live in Vermont, a land of mostly liberal and understanding people.

I was wondering if you might be aware of any articles or information to support / disprove my notion that they are better off living in New England, than southern states – NC or Georgia.

I would love to be able to provide my sister with some informed advice… Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks much,

From J in VT
