What part of Idaho? I'm in an interracial relationship and know that we felt fantastic in the Idaho falls area.
That's so great to hear you guys are having a positive experience! My man is pretty tall and stands out, so his family and mine are a bit freaked out. We're moving to Boise, where is the falls area? I'm relieved to have "met" you!
Are you guys from Idaho, or how long have you guys lived there? I'm currently living in Wyoming but have family that lives in Idaho so we visit often and we are planning on moving there eventually. Probably mostly Hispanic but some Asian, American Indian and Pacific Islanders are there and definitely lots of mixed race children in Pocatello and Boise.
People in Idaho have seemed generally really accepting so I Boise think you will have a problem. Thanks for your replies ladies! I have heard that there is quite a mix of Asian and Spanish. My man moved to a horrible part of Michigan on a full ride scholarship where he ended up leaving after a semester because some guy randomly asked him what he dating his other friend were doing there calling them the "N" word.
It's sad but places like this really do still exist. I just don't want him to have to go through something like it again I live up by the Coeur d' Alene area. We're interracial next to Spokane and that sometimes brings some blacks over. I'm half black, but I don't really look like it. I also have a really good friend who's black.

He moved over here from the Seattle area about a year ago. It's not really a big deal up in this area. I wouldn't be too worried about it. Good luck!! Well I've had a really positive experience this far meeting Boise right, kind people. They say the pole was probably from the 90s, and that its grown a lot since then. We are definitely used to a more liberal culture, so hopefully this is true!
I'm just hoping that with us being so close to Oregon and not too far from Colorado that we will be around a lot of cool hippies I lived near Boise for almost 10 years, and visited often after I grew up on military bases around lots of dating cultures and races so when we moved to Idaho, it was interracial culture shock.
I'm white, but it was an adjustment for me. Mainly because so many of my new friends were so oblivious or naive to other cultures. Everyone was nice, it was just a lack of exposure. I heard so many of my friends in high school tell me about how they remembered the first time they saw someone who was not white.
All this said, I think Boise is growing at a crazy rate and so many people are moving there and I did notice over time that there was more diversity. It is a really nice place to live, pretty friendly and safe. If you want to be in a more progressive area, definitely stay in Boise. The North End is nice, but can be spendy. The Bench is also more liberal from my experience.
I also lived in Kuna and Nampa, which were ok, but as a 20 something, everything I wanted to do was in Boise. Hope that helps! Good luck to you! Thanks for the info! Very great advice I appreciate it!! He comes from a religious family so we will definitely be looking into all that! Yes, I think that is possible that students increase some diversity. I don't know if it would make a ificant difference because students aren't the majority of the population.
It might make your husband feel better to find a community through meetup or something like that. I just remembered there is a predominately black church in Boise. I went in and I think there were at least 50 interracial so people there. Not suggesting you all attend, but just saying there are enough people to actually have a church. Yea that's what I've heard is that the "bad parts" are really outside of Boise up north.
But did read something dating a bad incident that occurred in the east about 2 hrs away. Bad stuff goes on everywhere tho so I'm hoping it's not as bad as it could seem. Upper Idaho as in almost Canada is extremely racist, tons of Aryan Nation crazy people. My uncle lived there for a little bit and got out of there as soon as possible. But that is so far from Boise that your chance of meeting them is very slim. Thank you, so very very helpful!!
We plan on moving to the north end, and I've seen so Boise outdoor stuff to do there it's exciting. My bf has been discouraged now tho after researching online, where it says a lot of stuff about Idaho being a racist state I will keep all those places in mind for sure!

One more question if you don't mind Do you think there is a higher black population but they just aren't residents because they are in school at the university? Thanks again!
