My area is primarily muslim, I'm not, but most of my friends are. I'd say everyone's pretty open round here and I've never seen any sort of prejudice going on but I when I travelled to another country recently I noticed a lot of discrimination.
What's your area like?

Well, I'm biased. I would say that my area has a subtle prejudice against pretty much anybody who's not white or heterosexual, but I'm the mother of biracial children, one of whom happens to be gay. There are only a few instances where I've witnessed overt hostility to either of these groups, but I would say that there's an undercurrent of prejudice against anyone who deviates from the "norm" (which in my area is white, anglo saxon protestants with very traditional upbringings). People are generally more patronizing than anything else. But, like I said, I'm biased.

Not at all, here in NY and in the surrounding counties, you can't get much more multicultural then here! Different cultures congregate in concentrated areas but we all mesh together without any issues. It really is a melting pot of many culture & religions all living together. Never really have any thoughts about it, It's just normal life for us here.

I live in the Twin Cities area where there is a huge variety of people who follow a bunch of different religions and political beliefs and many gays and lesbians and many from foreign countries....a melting pot. LOL.
BUT in the little suburb I live in they are really quite conservative and not as accepting of differences at as those who live right in the Twin Cities. I keep my mouth shut and avoid letting these Conservatives in my neighborhood that I am not Conservative. LOL. It is a lot more pleasant that way.
